Fresh Vegetable Candy Defeats the Purpose of a Healthier Diet

At first the Fresh Vegetable Candy seems like an ambiguous creation. Is the candy made out of vegetables or are they simply flavored after specific veggies? As promising (and weird) as the former is, unfortunately it looks like the sweet treats fall into the latter category. Made entirely out of sugar, they are given three flavors: carrots, green beans and corn.

Created by Archie McPhee, the Fresh Vegetable Candy is appropriately described as "delectable-to-vegans-and-vegetarians" by Oh Gizmo. Unless people like the idea of sugared carrots and green beans, these candies are not all that they are cracked up to be. Even Archie McPhee writes, "It is especially fun to see the look on kid's faces when they taste these--a mixture of horror and delight!"
