 I know that one of my favorite activities as a child was building with LEGOs. With a box of LEGOs the possibilities were endless. You could make any type of house or boat or spaceship and play with it and modify it in any way. Now you can not only stack your LEGO shaped blocks, but you can eat them too!

 The blocks come in different colors and thus different flavors and they also come in different sizes and thus you can choose the size of the piece of candy you want without breaking or biting.

 I would be lying if I said that the candy’s taste matches up equally with how fun it is, but the sweet grainy sugar blocks are just not the greatest tasting candies. Each color has a distinct flavor and those flavors are entirely too sweet for my taste.

These candy blocks would make for a great birthday party activity for young kids. With a big bucket of these blocks, a room of kids could have the time of their lives. The blocks actually stick quite well together; the kids build their towers and after they have already gotten all of their germs and all of their friends’ germs all over their beautiful candy block tower they can call off the bulldozers and munch down on their creation.

Sometimes you are looking for a caffeine energy boost but don’t want the coffee breath or don’t want to spend the six dollars for a cup of coffee. When this situation presents itself, the Caffeinated Suckas from the McJak Candy Company are a perfect substitute.

This large ball of candy sits on the end of a heavy-duty plastic stick and leaves you with the satisfaction of a candy craving and caffeine wake up call. With 60 mg of caffeine this lollipop doesn’t pack the punch to give you the shakes, but does have a significant amount of caffeine that will add a little pep to your step. (As a reference point, a cup of coffee has anywhere between 80 mg and 200 mg of caffeine).

 The Suckas come in four colorful flavors: slammin’ strawbanana, bustin’ berry blast, wicked watermelon and wired wild cherry. These flavors will last a long time, which also makes for a gradual come on of the caffeinated effects.

The sticker label on the plastic packaging of the Sucka looks to be hand drawn and hand stuck on which creates for a less corporate feel. Overall, this Sucka will keep your sweet tooth happy and your eyes open, enjoy!
