Last year, Consumer Reports blogged about the choking hazard posed by candies packaged to appear as toys. CR was concerned that young children will be confused by toy-like objects that are edible in one context but not another. I spotted a similar product during a recent supermarket run. Crayon-like popsicles. I’m not sure who the marketing genius is behind this product, but I don’t associate a box of crayons with anything tasty. Of course, parents may use these popsicles as a medical diagnostic tool. If your young Hannibal keeps asking for the flesh-flavored popsicle, you might consider consulting with Dr. Starling.
