This is crazy!

So I bought this candy from the dollar store for Ashley's stocking.
Toxic Waste extreme sour candy.
Yesterday she decided to enjoy a few pieces.

It made her mouth bleed!

Here's the cautionary message on the side, which we didn't notice til after the fact:
Consuming more than one within
 a brief time may cause irritation
to mouth. Sensitive individuals
should not consume this product.

Who ever heard of a caution message on candy?
How many kids actually stop to check the back of the package for such a thing?

Wow! That is crazy. I never would have thought to look for something like that. The most I check for is allergies.

Warheads do it too. If you convince your kids to let them sit in their mouths without making faces and they have to try every color... yeah, the same thing happens.

You and I Mikki-- we're the top two candidates for Mom of the Year ;-)

If half the things I've eaten this past week would have made my mouth bleed, I wouldn't have gained these 5 pounds!
I think I'll avoid anything with the word "Toxic" on the package!

btw, how did they taste?

Unreal! I can't believe manufacturers can get away with that!
Eat this--and oh by the way--it will make your mouth bleed....

Hope Ash is alright. I'll be checking all my kids candy in the future.

What in the world is in that stuff!

I wouldn't want to give it to a child, but I can think of a few potty mouths I work with that could use it.
