I bought these on a whim with some of the best people in the world. How could we pass these up?
Necco made these for the Twilight craze. It was probably the best purchase I've ever made. These were fucking hilarious. I mean, first, you have flavor names like Passion Fruit, Tempting Apple, Orange Obsession and Secret Strawberry. Then there's the "from and to" header on the box so your own Edward Cullen can GIVE YOO HIS CANDEE HRTS OMGWTFBBW XOXOXOXOX"
I'm totally aware that says big, black woman and not barbecue.
There are the hearts. They come in a hard-to-open, vampire-piercing proof plastic bag, roughly 3/4 full. They're just like conversation hearts, except they say enigmatic and occasionally worrisome phrases like "Bite Me," "Live forever," and "Forks."
The flavors are pretty odious, but addictive. It's like eating stale bubblegum. All the flavors tasted the same, varying in acidity and color, and the texture wasn't like conversation hearts at all. Where the hearts are chalky and hard, these were chalky and chewy. Either they were left outside all night in a vampiric rainstorm, or the vampire glitter powder emulsifies them. Regardless of the cause, these are awful.
And yet, like the fangirl to Edward Cullen's tired penis, I just can't stop eating them.
