HOW TO DRAW POPEYE | CANDY CIGARETTES | VIDEO GAME | POPEYE COSTUMES
Popeye's candy cigarettes are a sweet like no other. They look like cigarettes. They make smoke when you puff on them (a totally cool facet of the candy). And they're incredibly appealing to children (they were sold in candy and convenience stores, and feature a bright colorful picture of Popeye on the front of the box). Yet the products were banned. So what's not to like? Well, the obvious - selling cigarettes to children, in any form, is generally frowned upon today. Hearing children say "hey I'm smoking!" while sucking on the sweet treat is not as politically correct these days as it once was. But still...
Who wouldn't want to be like the rough and tumble Popeye? Sure, he primarily got his strength from spinach, but he does indeed have a pipe. Plus, what's the harm in pretending? It's fun to "blow off smoke", especially when you're a kid - and this is a perfectly harmless way to do it. Of course, in order to have a place in modern candy stores and convenience chains, the name would have to change. So, out went the word "cigarettes" and the candy was re-christened...
Popeye Candy Sticks! So did the forces of political correctness and health consciousness change Popeye Candy Cigarettes beyond all recognition? Not in the slightest! In fact these candy cigarettes are the same as they ever were - including the ability to blow smoke. Yes indeed, kids today can enjoy the exact same delicious Popeye candy cigarettes that have been available for decades - except for the minor name tweak. So enjoy some "candy sticks", Popeye style!
Popeye Candy Stick Warning: Real cigarettes are very bad for you. In moderation, candy is a nice treat. As for candy cigarettes - use your judgment!
