Looney Tunes Candy Sticks
Currently available at fine Dollar Stores near you are these Looney Tunes Candy Sticks from "World Confections Inc" out of Brooklyn, New York. These are apparently the modern-day equivalent of the old "candy cigarettes" of yesteryear but with a more politically correct name. As you can see below, these "candy sticks" look like pieces of chalk. They taste like chalk, too.
While the bulk of the 22 packs in this bag were indeed Looney Tunes characters (Bugs, Daffy, Tweety and Taz)... I found it interesting that there were also a bunch of Tom & Jerry and Flintstones characters mixed in as well.
I guess calling them Looney Tunes Candy Sticks was easier than calling them Random Cartoon Characters That Are Owned by Time-Warner Candy Sticks.
