Gorgeous textures and smooth-as-silk typography make this a striking backdrop for your content. This theme’s design is light and airy without being too plain or minimalistic; it’s a great fit for any type of site.
Liquorice features custom subscribe icons for RSS, Twitter, and Facebook for your site header and built-in support for the bold and adventurous Lobster typeface. If you choose to enable Lobster via Appearance → Typekit Fonts you’ll add an extra touch of retro feel to your site. Lobster’s bold, calligraphic strokes make it perfect for calling out titles and headings.

Awesome cute theme.
Lovely! A little vintage and a little minimal! :-)
Oooooh beautiful! And I like the name! ;)
I changed over! I really wish that if you changed the background color that the sidebar background color would change also—it doesn’t. That’s so weird! Having a white background and a tan sidebar is bizarre, or any other color than the original background color would just stick out strangely.
Wow, that’s nice! Kinda has a 1950s soda fountain feel to it. =) Thanks again, WordPress.
This looks like a perfect theme for summer.
Just beautiful… amazing theme.
A very good theme indeed. I simply love it!
Oooh, lovely! I’ve been switching over to a lot of these new themes, since they’ve overall been excellent. I have a fourth blog that frankly calls for something more retro (it has to do with old comic strips), and this theme might be just the ticket! Thanks!
Cool, but not for me – too casual. Good work though – it’s all appreciated.
So many nice new themes – hard to know which to choose!
The absolute best theme for ages – well done!
This is a fresh style in themes and I’m sure quite a few will love this one. I’m wondering if it’s a new trend to include so much space at the top of the blog as we now see with Licorice and Duster? I like people to be able to see my material at first glace instead of having to scroll done so far.
It looks like a 50s advertising poster. I like it.
I really like this! When I read “Licorice,” I wasn’t sure, but it’s my favorite theme I’ve seen come out in a while. Well done!
So cute and retro!
Looks like a very casual and fun theme — can’t wait to play with it to see how it all works together (and how it works — or doesn’t — with my blog’s content).
Thanks as always for the options!
Like Sandra said, to much unused space. Looks nice though.
I really like this one, especially for the choice (and size!) of fonts. After all my cribbing about so many themes with tiny fonts, this one kinda shuts me up. :-) Good work!
I really like it, this theme is one of my favorites – I like the Facebook, Twitter and RSS feed at the top, I’m just not crazy about the design in the upper right hand corner. But for a free WP.com theme, this is great, wish more were like this!
I love it! Is it a free theme?
That’s really pretty in a cool kinda way – would be great for a blog on travel!
I think Licorice is one of the coolest themes.
Good job… each one gets better.
Nice… keep them coming.
I love this theme!
I’m gonna give this a look and see if I like it, I was expecting it to be black though.
I am considering to use this theme. Thank you. :D
Wow! This one is really neat! I also LOVE Big Sur! :)
The retro font and social site icons are a nice touch! Thanks.
Arrrgghh! You guys make it so hard to be faithful to just one theme! I keep falling in love with new themes nowadays… and this one might make me cheat on Duster. :(
Great looking theme! Testing it on my ‘secret’ test site. :)
You guys keep putting out great stuff without us having to spend one dollar. Fantastic, and for those who want to spend, they can, on the premium themes. I love the free ones. My blogs look fantastic, thank you.
Another wonderful theme from the theme team! Love the header fonts! It’s just missing being slightly wider in the blogging area and as someone else pointed out, the sidebar colour really ought to be changable with the background colour. Keep up the good work team!
Wow, I like it very much. Simple but beautiful. :D
Nice theme, especially liking the font choice… but it looks very similar to a certain Tumblr theme… hmm.
Sort of unrelated to the theme release, but Big Sur is beautiful! ^ ^
Another great theme!
It’s a really good one.
I’d like it better if there were footers: widget-ready footers.
I like it, but I like my current theme more :)
Cute! It looks like it could be the front of some 1950s sodashop… if you know what I mean! Really cool.
Not sure I can bring myself to change (I’m pretty in love with my theme) but it’s a GREAT contender!
Wow! Just beautiful.
Nice new theme. It looks more feminine than masculine though.
Nice one… simple and casual.
That is cool indeed.
Lovely but it is too simple for me.
EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for! Just changed to it! I sure hope I’m the only one… lol.
I love this theme.
I am going to try it and see if I like it. Thanks for the info… ciao.
Cool, but probably won’t fit my blog… everyone else have at it!
Beautifully designed. I like it.
Ooooh, I’m loving the look of these new theme! The fonts are my favorite! :-D
Stunner, and so is the Lobster font! Fab design.
It’s a hipster trap! Look out! ;)
But seriously, it’s a cool looking design. Great for those Hipstamatic pics clogging up your phone. Get ‘em out there.
Nice theme, I lived in the Carmel Highlands, north of Big Sur. :)
Hmmm… I tried this theme, but the header font doesn’t look like the one as advertised. It ended up looking too big and obscured my custom header. I went back to my old theme. Pity, because I did like the color scheme.
Lovely! And free!
Cool! Very neat-looking!
Love this! Looking forward to switching one of my blogs over to it soon!
That really looks pretty cool… nice & clean looking!
I love this one! Nice! However, I think I should find time to personalize my page first. Ha!
Awesome, I think I won’t be the only one having this.
What an awesome new theme!
Whoa! This is hot!
Ooooh, I love it!! Trying it out soon and will probably switch!
Oh wow. I really like this theme. I might keep this as an option for when I get bored of the default.
Cute and kind of nostalgic.
This is an amazing theme! I’ve been using it since the day it came out and I have to admit I don’t plan on changing anytime soon!
Such a unique and interesting theme, the addition of the three icons adds interest!
Nice one, I love the earthy feel to it. :) Good job, guys!
It is very beautiful.
It’s pretty. I love it.
Love it! Nuff’ said. :D
Looks simple but interesting. :-D
I think it is very nice, and attractive!
This theme is pretty girly, I love the header font.
Oooooh! I think this will suit my blog- I love Notepad, or whatever I have at the moment, but I’m getting a bit bored with it – this looks exactly right! Thanks!
Friendly – both the colors and the fonts. Good stuff!
Lobster is fast becoming the “Comic Sans MS” or “Papyrus”. Way overused now.
Love it! Seeing this new theme actually prompted me to create a new blog just for my iPhone photos. Thanks!
Interesting theme will give it a try.
Very good theme! Already using it :D
This is A to the MAZING! Too bad I promised my readers I would be sticking with Rounded by Release for a while :/ What is with me and my silly promises?! ;)
Simple and yet so cool. Thanks and regards to all WordPress users.
OMG, this is just so… sweet! ;)
That looks delicious :)
Very nice. Looks very 50s diner.
