No: Wax as Food

You know what I don't like?

These:


I'd like to know who came up with the bright idea of labeling an inedible substance like wax "candy." Wax is not candy and neither is dirt, Vaseline or paper. We don't eat these things. Nobody, for example, fills a paper tube with lemon meringue and peddles it as "candy."  So I don't know how the creators of these waxy bottles got away with it.

I do know I did eat one of these things many years ago and remember the experience well: a bite into flavorless wax only to be rewarded with a disgusting belch of syrupy discharge.  I can't remember if I ate the wax or spat it out, but I can't imagine that either choice was rewarding.
