Oh come on - many, many things in this world are sick (anould never ever be tolerated). For example, those who go around doing the things mentioned above. Comparing a silly bit of candy - which recreates what we have seen in cartoons - to THAT,is just ridiculous.

A sense of perspective is all I'm asking for. Since when were candy shapes responsible for encouraging all society's ills?

You guys make me happy . I'm so glad people agree. Like I said, anyone who abuses real-life animals are jerks, but candy DOESN'T HAVE FEELINGS, so it just seems strange to be so bothered. And sally_cinnamon, I agree about blaming inanimate objects for society...it's kinda like those people who blame Barbie dolls for making girls want to go on diets and stuff. Yeah, they're dolls, people...they had no part in a girl going on a diet, they can't tell her she needs to lose weight to look like a Barbie, they didn't force her into going on a diet. I played with Barbies all the time as a kid...no bad influences here.

It's just dumb. There's nothing wrong with worrying about serious issues like animal abuse or dangerous diets, but people blame the wrong things for the causes of that stuff, and it's not helping the problem at all.

As for Peeps...every time I see those now, I can't help but think of something my mom does...whenever she gets Peeps (she and my sister love those...I used to eat them a lot when I was little, but not so much anymore), she has this habit of coming up to me with the box of candy and singing, "Closer than my peeps you are to me...". Yeah...

here are my thoughts as a vegetarian (i do not support eating creatures that have lived), whoever thought of this idea is disgusting. however, to "rabble, rabble, rabble" is pretty pointless and petty. furthermore, it is also petty to "rabble, rabble, rabble" about those who feel passionate about this.

Hi!

Well....I know a good way to stop it.....just don't buy any of their other brand products......hurt them where it hurts the most.....their pocketbooks.....then maybe they'll get the point.

I hate when companies take advantage of the children.....

Hi!

It's what is called subliminal messages........betcha can't catch it over the radio or tv waves.....but it's there.

Don't they sell enough of candy already....why do they have to come up with some "stupid" product........just where is mankind going anyway.......don't answer that....I already know.....and it begins with a capital "H"...
