Guest Blogger: Fred, Maple-Nut TruffleWhat is it with Circus Peanuts?
Nobody likes them. Yet they're on display at every store. Meanwhile class act candy like Swedish Fish, Spice Drops, Dumdum Pops, and Wax Lips get second-class status.
Why do Circus Peanuts get all that shelf space? They're gross: Band Aid colored. Rubbery. Ugly. They look like something that should be floating in a lab jar. And why are they called "Circus Peanuts?" Did they get their start as a sideshow exhibit? Maybe you'll find them, if you're lucky.
Let's compare myself, a Maple-Nut Truffle, with a Circus Peanut.
So clearly I'm the superior candy. Yet can you find me at most supermarkets and drugstores? No! But you'll find plenty of Circus Peanuts What's going on?
The Dumdum Pops and I have a theory. The Circus Peanuts are blackmailing their way onto the nations shelves. I suspect organized crime is involved. It's the only explanation, I tell ya.
