Some toys never go out of style, and perhaps their timeless quality is in part what makes these Gummi Army Men candy by Albanese such a delicious idea. The little green toy serves as the perfect inspiration for a fruit snack as it’s also small in size.

But these little army guys aren’t made from green plastic, they’re made form sugary gelatin and food coloring, making them a fun, nostalgic throwback to the original vintage toy with a modern twist; they are completely edible. Now little boys and girls can play with these treats until they get bored of them, in which case they can wolf down the fruity men. This may be the only time you encourage them to play with their food and because of candy's wide appeal, these Gummi Army Men also make for a fun sweet for adults too.
