Musk Life Savers have been given me, and they are pink and taste for all the world like sugar candy dipped in Grandma brand perfume.

I did greatly enjoy Two Dogs (hard lemonade), which was imported briefly in the states, but has been driven away by inferior domestic products.

The most horrible thing would have to be either the kangaroo scrotum coin purse, or the bush pepper kangaroo jerky. I can still recall the nasty taste and the amount of honking I did trying to get it out of my throat.

I've had carp lozenges, and I had part of an urchin smoothie when I was stuck on an airfield in Laos, but thankfully I've never been threatened with musk sticks. Are they deodorant snacks or something?

Musk sticks are made from selected muskrat glands and at $1.20 are a BARGAIN. They contain no artificial colouring whatsoever.

"FADS" were until recently called "FAGS" - meaning cigarettes - because that's what they were: candy cigarettes in a flip-top box we pretended to smoke, just like mum and dad. Now they're marketed as "fun sticks " and the kids on the pack are shown balancing them on their noses, not pretending to smoke them. Yeah, right.

hey I recognise these Aussie treats!
The musk flavour is sweet not savoury or salty

Oh and speaking of non PC candies the 'Redskins' used to have a picture of a native American, feathers and all...

Now that I look at these more closely I have a question... can anyone say what is happening on the REDSKINS package? It look s like rape to me.

I had a long hard look at a bag of Redskins today and can confirm that it's pretty much an illustration of one sticky pink piece of confectionery raping another.

At least it's an accurate representation of what Red Skins do you your teeth.

Musk sticks are pure evil, and 'FADS' used to be called 'FAGS' [as in the British slang for cigarettes]. We used to pretend to smoke while eating them.

You managed to capture the most vile section of the confectionery isle there. No doubt about it.
