Guys Turn Hundreds Of Airheads Candy Into A Ghost Costume

Halloween is less than a month away and we’ll have to start looking for the perfect costume. That is, unless, we want to get creative and make our own this year.

YouTuber Lazyron decided to embrace the spirit of the holiday with a spooky ghost costume made entirely from Airheads.

With the help of Canada’s prime minister of poutine, Josh Elkin, and YouTuber KyleHatch, the group sets off to create the sweet specter.

They start by creating three human-sized triangles out of the taffy candy. The pieces are then heated together and molded around Lazyron to form the “ghost sheet.” When the colorful costume is complete — equipped with googly eyes and all — the gang takes to the streets to spook some pedestrians.

After watching this video, maybe we’ll want to get creative with some of our favorite holiday candies. Perhaps a superhero, Captain Candy Corn, and his life-long enemy: Dr. Diabetes. Maybe.

The only thing that truly terrifies us about this costume will be the impending ant problem that will absolutely come to pass.

This Is Taco Bell’s AIRHEAD WHITE MYSTERY Freeze

white-mystery-freeze-taco-bell

While all our childhood friends fought over the many different flavors of Airheads growing up, we always happily grabbed the White Mystery flavor. Y’know, the one in the sleek silver wrapping and the flavor you won’t know about until the taffy snack is wedged between your teeth? Half the joy was in the uncertainty.

Fast forward two decades later and we get to relieve our childhood once again with Taco Bell’s new White Mystery Airhead Freeze. The fast food chain announced a partnership with Airheads to bring the ice beverage to stores.

We’re guessing each batch will be a different flavor and they’ll refill multiple ones throughout the day.

You can find the White Mystery Freeze at participating Taco Bell locations nationwide on September 15. The beverage will be available in a 16 oz for $1.99 or a 20 oz for $2.29.

11 Pieces of Candy that Every ’90s Kid Misses

90s-candy

Story originally written by Nicole Perry of Popsugar

Sometimes we wish we could go back to a time when Fresh Prince was king, our greatest responsibility was making sure our Tamagotchi was fed, and candy was sweet, sour, and simple. There are near-countless reasons we’re proud to be ’90s girls, but the sweetest of them all was stashed in the candy aisle. Let’s take a trip down memory lane with these iconic treats of our childhood.

_____

Bubble Tape

hubba-bubba

Sorry Washi Tape, you weren’t the first novelty tape to take the US by storm; Hubba Bubba Bubble Tape’s got you beat.

_____

Warheads

90s-candy-2

Warheads were equally prized for their shock factor as they were for their terrifically tangy flavor.

_____

Pixy Stix

90s-candy-3

Grown-ups didn’t understood their appeal — sure, Pixy Stix are basically just flavored sugar — but that only made them more fun to eat.

_____

Fruit Stripe Gum

90s-candy-4

Not only did Fruit Stripe Gum step it up in the food-coloring department, but each stick also came with a temporary tattoo.

_____

Nerds

90s-candy-5

We’re still not really sure how Nerds got their cheeky name, but that didn’t stop us from gobbling them up by the handful.

_____

Airheads

90s-candy-7

Sour apple, cherry, and watermelon had their fans, but the best Airheads flavor was, and still is, White Mystery.

_____

Tiny Size Gum

90s-candy-8

Chiclets Tiny Size Gum might not have tasted like much, but that didn’t stop us from ripping into packet after brightly colored packet.

_____

Everlasting Gobstoppers

90s-candy-9

If you needed to make your candy last thoughout an entire sleepover — sleep being a major misnomer — all you had to do was open up a box of Everlasting Gobstoppers.

_____

Push Pops

90s-candy-10

Like their close-cousins Push-UpsPush Pops trumped their classic stick-based counterparts, no contest.

_____

Bubble Yum

90s-candy-11

For the best bubble blowing and gum snapping, we chewed our way through a packet of Bubble Yum.

_____

Ring Pops

90s-candy-12

Fantastically flashy, Ring Pops were worth their weight in gold to a ’90s candy fiend.

What did we leave off?

AirHeads Popsicles Are Now a Reality

Y’all know AirHeads right? Those tangy taffy-like chewable candy strips we either received as rewards in grade-school or purchased on our own accord (you know who you are, addicts)? A few weeks back, we heard rumors they would be making a resurgence in ice cream form — now we know a bit more.

As part of Popsicle brand’s latest lineup, they have made frozen versions of the popular AirHeads candy and launched their initial run in four flavors: Strawberry, Blue Raspberry, Watermelon and White Mystery. The new Popsicle flavor will come in an 18 pack assortment and should retail around $4.49.

Are you excited for the AirHeads flavor available in your grocer’s frozen food aisle? Sounds a bit more refreshing during this hot summer weather than…well, than the actual chewy, anti-mouthwatering original candy.
