Mars and The Red Cross now offer red, white, and blue M&M's

Mars and The Red Cross now offer red, white, and blue M&M's with proceeds going to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. I'm forced to wonder what would happen if you went into a candy store and asked for "any kind but the red, white, and blue ones."

Wonka! We'd be remiss to let halloween pass without a shoutout to one of the best candy companies ever. Very nice Flash work here, too. What's your favorite Wonka candy?

I miss the candy i can't find anymore. all these candy links got me searching for my favorites, Beemans Black Jack, and Clove Gum. What other Extinct candy do you miss? anyone need a Summit Break?

necco! call me provincal but one of my favourite candy companies is the new england confectionary company -- there's really nothing like riding the no 1 bus over smoot bridge and seeing the candy coloured smokestack rising from their roof. okay, so sweethearts taste like chalk and necco wafers are out and out disgusting; there's nothing quite like the sky bar.

Dum Dum anyone?

Dum Dum anyone? I just had one for the first time in at least ten years. And now I know why they are so small and what the mystery is all about.

Ferrara Pan Candy Company.

Ferrara Pan Candy Company. My favorite candy company for several reasons. One, I live nearby and the neighborhood around the factory always smells like Lemonheads. Mmmmmmm. Two, they also make my all-time favorite candy: Atomic Fireballs! And of course, everyone's had Red Hots before. Finally, there's Boston Baked Beans, and Black Forest Gummies. Take a virtual tour and see how candy is made. Guaranteed to be less gruesome than watching sausage being made.

Since we're talking candy, as a kid I used to be addicted to U-No Bars. This dates me but I unhaled those puppies. And it's amazing how many other "staple" candy bars they made.

Horehound is probably the most obscure candy....

Horehound is probably the most obscure candy.......but there's always Altoids, which many know by name but few seem to have become addicted to. Or how about a blast from the past: Sen-Sen? Or, for those of us with a taste for both sweetness and a bit of bite, how about a 30lb box of cinnamon bears? And for those who say that real licorice whips are black and not red, here's everything you ever wanted to know about licorice. Happy Samhain! (Er, Hallowe'en.)

Candy Bar Math

Candy Bar Math A Brunching Shuttlecock link and almost certainly a double post. But what the hell: let's gorge on candy.

Pez! Forget politics, today's about gorging on candy. And what other candy is so obsessed over as Pez? (Google search results of "pez") I'm surprised no Pez sites were mentioned in the Magnificent Obsession discussion earlier this month, such as Pez Central. There's even a Dark Side of Pez site. For adults who didn't get good candy for Halloween when they were young, there's the Prozac Pez dispenser collection (be sure to play the Prozac Pez Game, it's like a shooting gallery).

Popcorn Balls

They aren't hermetically sealed in plastic, so most trick-or-treaters nowadays will never have heard of popcorn balls. But if you live in a trusting community, why not whip up a batch to give away tonight? (Hey, it's gotta be better than Snickers.) What's your favorite obscure Halloween treat? (that isn't pancakes.)

Inflicting Confectionary Torture On Racial Stereotypes.

Inflicting Confectionary Torture On Racial Stereotypes. Courtesy of Venco, makers of that delightful Nederlander candy treat Dubbel Zout (coal-black licorice briquets covered in two layers of salt). Through the magic of Flash animation, you can now engage in that most demonic form of torture: Forcing-feeding questionable Dutch candy down the throats of ethnic minorities and watching their reactions. Something tells me the closest the Venco people have ever gotten to a "Mexicaan" is a Cheech & Chong movie.

NOW SHOWING -- It's a Sex Toy and A Candy

NOW SHOWING -- It's a Sex Toy and A Candy This link takes you to a Flash animation for an "adult product" called GummyDongs -- gummy candy shaped like a penis, with a real vibrator inside. The animation is mildly amusing, but the concept was pretty funny to me. If you hate Flash, just go to the home page (sounds like pr0n, but it's actually pretty tame compared to the Nob-scan link)

Boy, 13, sues teacher after receiving "Fag" candy heart

Boy, 13, sues teacher after receiving "Fag" candy heart The lawsuit says the teacher rubbed an inoffensive valentine message off the candy heart and wrote "Fag" on it before giving it to the boy in front of his fellow students. Donald E. Miller, a veteran teacher, also had a habit of pretending that a television remote control was a "fagometer" that he pointed at students. He's being probed by the school.

Everybody loves Jelly Beans!

Everybody loves Jelly Beans! Especially the Horseradish, Grass, Black Pepper, Sardine....and yes, Booger. Bertie Bott's Every-Flavor Beans are now a reality. (From The Leaky Cauldron)

Planning on moving to Canada?

Planning on moving to Canada? Think twice. Not only will be abandoning the Land of Liberty, not only will you have a different election to worry about, but you'll also have to acclimate yourself to strange, foreign candy.

You have GOT to be kidding . . .

You have GOT to be kidding . . . With everything that COULD be achieved by modern science, THIS is what's getting attention?

For the low price of only $220, you can have 40 lbs of M&M's candies in your choice of 21 colors. School mascots could throw school-colored candy at crowds, but it's all fun and games til someone puts an eye out.

The Ultimate Bad Candy Website

The Ultimate Bad Candy Website is not the most high-end in production design but the stories of these two guys eating everything under the sun provided me with a a good 15 minutes of joy.
