Candilicious Ad and Commercial


Candilicious came out around 1987. It was a chewy candy sort of like Bonkers. If you need a modern equivalent picture a much chewier Starburst. I thought they were pretty tasty, but I can’t say I liked the idea of using a snake as mascot for candy. Very colorful, but kind of creepy.

    I still have several comic books with the comic ad (I think they’re the heathcliff ones by marvel’s star imprint).
    That commercial takes me back. I had completely forgotten about it till I watched it, but as soon as I watched it it all came flooding back.
