Saturday morning we stopped at VILLAGE CANDY in nearby Sewickley, PA. Missy is doing a candy trade with a friend in the UK and she wanted to see if she could find something interesting. I ended up buying a couple of bottles of JUDGE WAPNER ROOT BEER...yes, JUDGE WAPNER, the godfather of courtroom-reality television, has his own root beer. Or at least, a beverage company saw fit to license him. Who wouldn't want a soft drink named after them? The saying on the label is awesome - "I sentence you to drink my root beer!", though it makes it sound like drinking his beverage was some sort of punishment...does it taste THAT BAD? When you drink all the root beer the message "JUDGE FOR YOURSELF" appears. The verdict? Guilty of good taste.
I also bought a pack of these AEROBICA candy cigarettes. Putting a lady in a JAZZERCISE OUTFIT on a pack of candy cigarettes is brilliantly bizarre. Candy cigarettes are just so wrong anyways, but this packaging takes things to the next level...
