What black licorice or blue cheese is, for many : 

AN ACQUIRED TASTE
Liquorice (also licorice) and aniseed have similar flavors, but they come from unrelated plants. The liquorice plant is a legume like a bean, and the sweet flavor is an extract from the roots. The flavor mainly comes from an ether compound called anethole, the same substance that gives the distinctive flavor to anise. The seedpods of the anise plant are what we know as “aniseed”. The anise seeds themselves are usually ground to release the flavor.

The mold on blue cheese is actually from the genus Penicillium, the same genus of mold that is the source of many antibiotics.
