This TV commercial for Space Dust candy is pretty awesome…and actually a little frightening in a trippy 70s way. I mean these kids are just walking through the field when what looks like a horrible storm appears in the sky and down comes some flying and sentient talking fruit. I would probably have to roll for a sanity check after that encounter.

Space Dust was actually the leftover of Pop Rocks, that was why it was a powder candy where Pop Rocks was in crystal form. Space Dust eventually became Cosmic Candy due to the scare around Angel Dust.
A big thanks to the Mister Toast Blog for the package images you see up top.
