Ok, so I'm jumping the gun and starting the Halloween coundtown a day early with something I've never really done before, a candy review. Sort of. It's not really a review. I mean, I'm not going to get down deep into the semiotics of gummy candy or anything, but whatever. I found these appropriately gross looking gummi skulls at Walgress for two for a dollar, and being a skull enthusiast I guess, figured I'd try them out. They have a nice, heavy consistancy but are too sticky to really play with, unfortunately, otherwise I think they'd be really satisfying to throw around and slap people in the face with. But, like I said, too sticky. When you take them out of the plastic, they smell pretty bad, especially the green one. From the plastic-y odor I was expecting more of a Play-Doh flavor but actually they tasted pretty fruity and good, without any influence of the odd stink they otherwise let off. So, yeah, at 50 cents a piece, I say go for it. Sorry the pics kind of suck. Camera phone. Happy Halloween.
Happy birthday, Tom Waits!
