For novelty purposes...not for actual consumption. 2 for 1 deal with itching powder and stink bombs.

I'm sorry & just personal opinion here but those things are awful! I used to hate getting them in my Halloween bag.

Sky Bars always seemed like a terrible compromise: two decent fillings, one meh, one just weird. Fudge, caramel, white and mystery.

Except for the liquorish tasting ones.

If only there were liquor-flavored ones, maybe they'd be edible.

getting enough bone meal in your diet?

(Haven't bought a roll in years: it was an all-chocolate one: not, in my estimation, terrible.)

and you can't find any Necco Wafers, go to the drugstore or market and get some store-brand antacid tablets. Very similar. Usually better-tasting.

Insulin pump wearing diabetics become candy connoisseurs of a kind.

Necco Wafers are one of my preferred "break glass in case of emergency" candies.
