"US food giant Kraft has decided to halt production of sweets shaped like roadkill - animals run over by cars. Animal rights activists criticised the product, fruit-flavoured Trolli® Roadkill Gummi candy, saying it encouraged acts of cruelty." Read the news at BBC or MSNBC 26.Feb.2005. (via Boing Boing and SF Gate)
"New, cool shape from Trolli® Gummi! Trolli® brings back the fun of Gummi Candy with an off beat twist on animal shapes. Trolli® Road Kill is three animals; a Snake, a Chicken and a Squirrel, each with a tire track down the middle of the piece! It's not an adult's gummi candy, that's why teens/tweens love it!
Trolli® is a favorite gummi candy among teens/tweens and has a heritage of providing them the cool shapes and concepts they love.
Each 5.0oz peg bag of Trolli® Road Kill contains approximately 50 creatures in an assortment of gummi fruit flavors." www.candystand.com/trolli
