The Sparkitors Review the World's Grossest Candy: Grandpa Edition!

Melissa says: My step-grandpa used to pop these things like they were…candy, so tasting them brought back memories of being short, hungry, and angry that my grandparents couldn't just keep normal people candy around. At first, this candy bludgeons you with a sorta tasty floral flavor. Then, the backnote kicks in, and suddenly it's like your mouth just filled up with My Little Pony barf. The chalkiness is reminiscent of Smarties, however, so it's not all bad. C+
