"Candy" from China? Have YOU Had Your 'GIANT MALLOW POOFY POP Today? (POOFY POP Photo Included)
Is this "candy" from China?
For starters, we LIKE DOLLAR STORES. In our faltering economy many 'good buys' can be found there. From greeting cards to paper products to some cleaners among other small necessities and trinkets, we've found some real bargains in the bins, so to speak.
But today we came across "The Giant Mallow Poofy Pop", a rather large wrapped 'candy product' on a stick. Giving it the 'squeeze test' we found it to be a sponge-like substance. Sort of like memory foam.
On the backside of the package we found the ingredients: Sugar, Corn Syrup, Fructose, and several other 'sugar-type' sounding names along with "flavors" with various red, blue, and yellow dye numbers. 'Pink Slime' was probably in the mix, but not mentioned. And, of course, it sells for $1.00.
Although we didn't buy a GIANT MALLOW POOFY POP, we wondered if it was also a 'POOPY PUCKER UPPER', a cheap, but effective laxative for The Constipated.
If anyone has had direct experience with this 'plastic candy' please let us know in the "comments" section here.
Inquiring minds want to know.
