I first noticed the "candy that tastes like cake" trend with all the red-velvet cake options out there (and birthday-cake flavored ice cream, etc). But it's gone crazy in recent months. M&Ms, Easter candy, you name it.
I'm an entertainment editor at MSNBC.com, and have maintained Pop Culture Junk Mail since August, 1999. The New York Times called the site "one of the best places to explore pop culture online," and Entertainment Weekly included it on their Top 100 Web Sites list. If you like weird food, strange products, and 1970s and 1980s nostalgia, PCJM is your home away from home.
