Imagine my surprise when I found these at a country store on the way back from hiking a couple weeks ago. What?!! They are STILL selling? I thought they were illegal? Still, I stood there in both horror and fascination with the blatant similarities. I mean, who really picks these up and thinks, "Gee, this is a good candy for my kid!" I know, probably someone who isn't saying, "Gee". I don't see them often but clearly there's a market if I came across this size display at a random New Hampshire store.
After doing a little more research I found that the US considered a national ban in both 1970 and 1991 but neither ban was past. Instead lawmakers mandated they had to be called, "candy sticks" and not "candy cigarettes" but still, similarities are unmistakable.
Totally random post today but who cares? It's Friday! Have a great weekend my friends!
