Kais Candy Election Bipartisan Candies Set

Caitlin told you about these goofy election candies a few weeks ago, but here’s a quick report that the Bipartisan and Republican Sets are now available. (Candy Addict stands firm in maintaining that candy knows no political party; candy loves red, blue, and purple states; and candy always seeks common ground.)

Now, supposedly the McCain face was undergoing a makeover (hmmmm), and yes, his lollipop face doesn’t look too bad because the eyebrows are pronounced. But take a look at McCain on the little candies in the lower part of the photo above. I’m not sure you can tell, but I coulda sworn that was Casper the Ghost! I’m not saying McCain’s old, but… seriously, when you see one of these in person you’ll think it’s a comic book character of the spectral variety.

Obama’s picture is weird too, but more so on the lollipop than the little candy. The lollipop image makes me ask the following question: is he wearing lipstick?! I’m not saying he ain’t pretty, but… seriously, that’s too much pink.

As Caitlin noted, and I agree, you’re not going to buy this for the candy’s taste. It’s okay. You won’t get sick or anything, but I really didn’t want to eat more than one of these. They might remind you of your grandma’s candy dish: hard things of vaguely indeterminate flavor.

But these candies are fun, and for the bipartisan in all of us, they’re electioneering at its least sour.

Here’s hoping they remind you to vote on Tuesday, November 4.
