Cool Candy: Candy Buttons



Have you ever heard of candy buttons? They're little knobs of candy evenly spaced out on crisp white paper. I've never tried one of these because I always thought they were made of plastic or wax and completely unedible. The pink ones are apparently cherry, the blue is lime, and the yellow is lemon. Blue lime? Weird!

These old-school candies are apparently hard to peel off so you get a bit of paper stuck to your candies. That reminds me of eating chinese dim sum buns xD George Theofiel Dib created the candy button-making machine and also invented these strange candies.

Has anyone tried these before? I want to know what they taste like!

I've eaten them. They taste like...sugar. Probably because that's all they are. Worth a try though, just to say you did!

Mmm, good ole fashioned candy buttons. Probably because I'm so old, but it's all good. I remember I got a big 2 foot strip of them at halloween one time, hah.
