Random Tuesday Thoughts: About as random as it gets.


In the spirit of utterly random randomness, I give you....Gumdrops!

A perfectly normal licorice (ok, anise) gumdrop:

An attractive shade of purple, no?

A beautifully lemony yellow gumdrop that is actually artificially flavored as sassafras:

And then....what's this?

A gumdrop like this takes the joy right out of a bag of spice jelly beans from which you are in the process of removing all the orange and green ones.
Obviously there was a little bit of anise left in the mold (do they use a mold? Or did I just make that up?) before they added the sassafras. Let's just say I was afraid to try it.

Ooh, that's like the mystery flavor in dum dum's. When they switch from one flavor to the next, the median output is the combo "mystery" flavor. It's true. I saw it on Unwrapped!

Mmmmmm....anise. I love black licorice!

I am a sucker for black jelly beans and black gumdrops, but that poo-colored one is dubious....

Yeah, that poopoocaca colour wrecks the joy of gumdrops! Yuk.
