Nerdversity Reviews: Ghostbusters Popping Candy (Strawberry)


In 1984, Ghostbusters debuted in cinemas. It was considered a smash hit and a pop culture phenomenon.


In 2016, World Of Sweets released a whole slew of Ghostbusters themed sweets. One of the things they released was 2 lots of popping candy. It comes in a small foil packet, with the Ghostbusters logo on the top, the No-Ghost logo on the front, overlapped over a city scene, which is New York. On the bottom of the packet, we have the hazard stripe theme again, with the POPPING CANDY - STRAWBERRY FLAVOUR on the striping.


The back of the packet follows on from the other World of Sweets Ghostbusters sweets. Its black background with the ingredients in the white box. The hazard stripe descriptor is on the top of the ingredients box.


Popping Candy has been around for decades and has been a staple for many children growing up from the 70s to today. If you've never experienced them, they're little piece of hard candy that pop when placed on the tongue. These have a slight Strawberry taste to them, but it's quickly overridden when the popping happens.
