Hippy Sippy

Hippy Sippy consisted of tiny chocolate balls packaged in a container that looked like a hypodermic needle. The chocolate balls were sucked out through the "needle." The candy was introduced in 1968, but was pulled from shelves within a year because of popular outrage.

It reminds me of the Chilly Bang! Bang! juice-filled squirt gun.

I'm reminded of George Carlin's thoughts on addiction: "It's well known that mother's milk leads to heroin."

(Paraphrased somewhat, but you get the idea.)

Uh-oh. Hippy Sippy means trouble in River City, and that spells p-o-o-l.
