4 Merchandised Toy With Candy Products

With Halloween over for the year, you can usually get leftover Halloween candy for cheap because stores want that stuff off their shelves and not taking up precious backroom space that can be used for storing upcoming December holiday candy and other products.

Although I usually refer to it as cheap candy, what I really mean to say is that it’s inexpensive. It’s good candy that has been reduced in price as opposed to poorly made candy that doesn’t cost much to make and isn’t that great.

It’s just like the cheap toys you can get. There are the inexpensive good toys you can get for less money and the poorly made, fall apart when you touch them, cheap toys.

There are actually quite a bit of familiar candy products you can get for less at dollar and discount stores, but these merchandised candy products give you very little candy and more packaging. You can also get these at various other stores as well, such as department stores or even video game specialty stores.

The candy included isn’t exactly cheap, since you could get much more candy with other choices, but you can keep the containers and even play with them. They’re a cheap toy with a treat inside like a reverse Kinder Surprise which has the toy inside the candy.

They are made by Au’Some, which is probably supposed to be mean ‘awesome’, but it looks French so I translated it using Babelfish and it came back ‘with the nap’ in English and that just makes no sense at all.

1.) Mario Barrel Candy Container

Didn’t Mario die when landing on a barrel?

This is Nintendo’s Mario standing on a barrel full of candy. I’m not up on all my Mario games, but the only game that I can recall off the top of my head that included both Mario and barrels was Donkey Kong. Mario had to make it to the top of a building while dodging barrels that Donkey Kong was throwing from the top.

The candy inside is brightly colored and is most likely crunchy.

2.) Wiimote Candy Dispenser

Hazard: It doesn’t have a wrist strap

This is a really well done replica of an actual Wiimote only smaller in size. The candy goes in on the wrist strap side and you use the trigger to dispense them.

The pack includes two packs of the Rockets-like candy. You could probably find similarly sized and shaped candy as refills or if the candy is all gone, give it to a kid so they think they are playing the Wii while you are actually playing.

3.) Marvel Character Yo Yo’s

Many containers like this don’t even have candy in them and you are supposed to just play with them. They are in fact Yo Yo’s with stickers on the side of Marvel Characters. No DC character versions found.

They include bubblegum most likely in the form of Bubbletape. I just wonder if it fits six feet of chewing gum for you, not them.

4.) Optimus Prime Candy Dispenser

Autobots Transform

One of the lesser known products riding on the Revenge of the Fallen popularity, this is the movie Optimus Prime resting on the top of this Pez-like candy dispenser. I also found a Bumblebee version that I didn’t really care to pick up, but no Decepticon versions.

The candy is the same Rockets pack candy like the Wiimote.
