Nerdversity Reviews: Ghostbusters Popping Candy (Apple)

In 1984, we were introduced to the Ghostbusters, a supernatural horror comedy. It didn't take long for it to become a cult phenomenon, spawning a sequel, a reboot, a cartoon series, numerous video games and a whole slew of merchandise as well.

Rolling on to 2015,when Ghostbusters was celebrating it's 30th anniversary re-run at the cinema. UK Confectioner, World of Sweets was granted the license to make sweets based on the Ghostbusters brand. This is one of the other pieces. The Apple flavoured popping candy comes in a small foil packet. The packet is the same as the previous one, this time replacing the "No-Ghost" logo, with a screaming Slimer. 

The back of the packet features the same black background as all the other items in the World of Sweets Ghostbusters assortment. 

The popping candy itself is a green colour, much like Slimer himself. There is a faint apple taste while the candy is popping, but that quickly fades.
