Great Idea; Too Bad It Tastes Like Its Name

toxicwastecandyAs people who know me know, I like candy. I especially like sour candy. I was therefore  quite attracted to the display of candy in the picture. Great packaging. Excellent potential secondary use. Outstanding come on for us sour candy aficionados. So I bought a “can.”

Too bad it tastes awful. Their challenge to keep it in your mouth for a period of time based on its sourness was irrelevant. It tastes like toxic waste (ok, I’ve never had toxic waste actually, but this candy was really bad. It makes candy that tastes like medicine seem like a great treat.

Anyway, another example of a great idea with poor execution.
