March 1: Kraft Kills Road Kill Gummies

 

Professional Candy Buyer Exclusive

 

Tuesday, March 01, 2005

 

 

Parsippany, NJ — Kraft Foods, Inc. will halt production of Trolli Road Kill Gummies following complaints from New Jersey animal rights activists. The squirrel-, chicken- and snake-shaped gummies are shaped to resemble animals that have been run over by cars.

 

 

Last week, the New Jersey Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty to Animals voiced its objections to the items, claiming they encourage kids to mistreat animals.

 

 

Kraft says production of the gummies, made at the company’s Creston, IA, facility, will stop as soon as possible and remaining inventories will be sold.

According to reports, Kraft spokesperson Larry Baumann says: “We take comments from our customers very seriously, and in hindsight we understand that this product could be misunderstood.”

 

 

Trolli is one of several candy brands the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Co. is purchasing from Kraft in a deal valued at $1.48 billion.

 

 

It would have "killed" my need for something sweet, thats for sure!!!!

Does this mean that Sour Patch Kids are insensitive to brats? Come on people. I can't say I would buy them but more for the gross-out factor. Are kids going to kill animals to eat them because they look like candy, I think not.

 

And why are candy cigarettes still on the market if kids are so stupid?

 

Okay, I'm done.

Have you seen the "gummy rats" at the grocery store?? I think I have found the one junk food I have no desire to eat! If only it all looked like that I would be skinny!!

Honestly...if you're eating gummy bears, worms, etc...do you examine them first? Probably not. Half of the kids probably wouldn't even notice if they were "road kill". Kinda gross, but pretty funny.
