Tiki!


Some of you may remember my post on the inexplicably awful and yet strangely fun Tiki candy on the previous incarnation of this blog. I bought the candy solely on the strength of the packaging, which is awesome. The candy itself is, well, the weirdest thing I've ever put in my mouth. And that covers a lot. Artificial punch-flavored sweet tarts crossed with pop rocks, only really, really foamy. The Swiss are wild and crazy, I'm telling you!

I sent a package to my pal and fellow Lesley MFA grad Bryan Ballinger, who has a thing for weird food. He was kind enough to share the candy with his 3D Character Design students at Huntington College. This is the hilarious and somewhat gross result: Foaming Care Squares.

I corrected the credits! I don't know if you'll get on the IMDB now, but you are an official candy supplier for an independent short film! :)

Wow, thanks, Bryan! As for getting onto the IMDB, well, one has to start somewhere...

What a great little film! The looks on everyone's face were just priceless. Thanks for the warning on this sweet foaming treat.
