Candies That Were Pulled For Being Too Dangerous

List Rules
Vote up the candies that you can't believe anyone thought were a good idea.

They say you must take the bitter with the sweet, but what about the toxic? We all have a few candy horror stories, but some people's sweet trauma goes beyond eating a popcorn butter flavored Jelly Belly. Take Kinder Eggs, which have been banned in the US since the 1930s. The plastic toy hidden inside the candy has caused several children to choke (though everyone affected knowingly consumed the toys), and citizens who attempt to smuggle them into the States can be fined up to $2,500 per egg.

While worldy sugar junkies can still pick up Kinder Eggs in other parts of the world, there are some candies you can't buy anymore, as they were discontinued for being too dangerous. Production was halted on the original Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge Chew Bars after it was revealed that they contained high amounts of lead. Once you learn the truth about dangerous discontinued candy, you'll wonder how some of these products ever got approved.
