Bonkers Candy and the Bonkers Mobile

Bonkers Candy was my all time favorite, especially for the commercials and the idea that everytime I chomped it, a gigantic piece of fruit was trying to crush me from the sky. But, the real mystery is : WHAT HAPPENED TO THE "BONKERS MOBILE" ? Anyone ?

Wow, I remember touring inside the Bonkersmobile when it came to my local mall. That takes me back. I liked Bonkers, too, but I can't recall what exactly they tasted like.

I can't even find a picture or mention of the Bonkersmobile. Any clues ?

Oh my God... every month or two, I reminisce (and drool) remembering the glorious taste and texture of Bonkers.

Jesus Christ, I forgot all about Bonkers until just now. Thank you so much for reminding me, unpoppy.

Hey, anybody remember Trix popsicles? Those things were fucking delicious--they burned a little on the way down, but they were delicious nonetheless.

I had forgotten about Madballs. Those and M.U.S.C.L.E.s were pretty strange, looking back on them.

Oh, this is an excellent. I've asked quite a few people in the last year if they remember Bonkers, and I was starting to think I was all alone. How do you forget about giant fruit falling from the sky and conking people on the head?

I think StrasbourgSecaucus was aiming for this but failed.

I believe that's bonking people on the head...

Make sure you aren't taken in by these imposters. I don't suppose this is the Bonkersmobile.

tellurian - that definitely is not the bonkersmobile. The bonkersmobile was a large touring van filled with oversized rubber fruit. I must find it !

Nice fruity candy flashback. Going for the nearest thing I just gorged on my stash of grape laffy taffy. Like it was a meal.
