Let's get back to the weird food and gross candy that is so much a staple of PCJM, shall we? Today at Target Rob and I spotted, at the checkout no less, CHOCOLATE Bubble Yum with a Hershey's co-branding on it.
See it here. According to Slashfood, it's been out since December, but this was the first time I've seen it. I was close to buying it for a sample, but a very strong sense memory of how every chocolate gum I have ever tasted has been mega-disgusting kept me from it. (I can envision the flavor right now, can't you? So artificial and so tongue-lashing that it gives you a permanent distrust of fake chocolate?)
Wasn't there a gum that advertised ice cream flavors and came in chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and perhaps others? And was just nasty? I can almost picture the label. I bet it's in my copy of "Krazy Kids' Food" somewhere. (Or am I thinking of this ice-cream cereal?)
We also saw Bubbilicious Burst Ink'd, a gum that really has the trifecta of kid-tempting weirdness. It is sour, has a liquid center, and dyes your tongue different colors. When I type that out like that, I kind of can't believe I didn't buy a pack or ten. Man, if only it tie-dyed your tongue in rainbow colors like a Bomb Pop, as the package misleadingly advertises, I would have to go back.
