Let's just say that Lemon and Melon have A LOT of sisters.

Dammit, I knew that dog joke was going to trigger a Monty Python cascade.  Now stop that, it's silly.
It's not silly, it's a very naughty thread!---And now for something completely different:
Human siblinghood is idemparentality e.g. I'm selfsibling; cybrid siblinghood being idemcrèchality, Lemon's 1stprime5thprime'd include Lemon.

I suspect that's one of those oft repeated but often underexplored memetic pop-opinions people tend to repeat. Like 'I hate country music' or 'black licorice is gross'[1]. Fun fact, I've given folks[2] who say they hate black licorice black licorice[3] and they actually liked it. Two of them straight up asked me what it was because they'd never tasted it before.
Arm the xkcd cannons!

Fire!

"licorice"
No specifics at all. Not even singling out a single flavor, brand, or styling.

That's author bias.

Licorice is the specific flavor: from Glycyrrhiza glabra or Glycyrrhiza lepidota plant. And if that's what was meant, it's not bias at all because it would mean the flavor generally. Although this may be more a case of maturing palate, because I hated licorice as a kid but now I love it. Unless there really was some innovations in the licorice plant that I'm not aware of.

If you consider post count as age, I'm quite old. Most of us are certifiably ancient around here. But like age, it often doesn't reflect maturity.

"Well it looks like she hates it."
"Yes, that is it! I hate this!" sniffs "Ew, yes! I hate this! It is revolting!"
"More?"
"Please."

There's tons of candy that presents itself as [x fruit] licorice (strawberry, cherry, mango, etc).

EDIT: Huh. I didn't realize open bracket x close bracket made bullet points.
