A few excerpts:

-Jelly Belly might have created the blue jelly bean for Reagan’s inauguration, but the president favored the licorice flavor.
-How many licks to the center of a Toostie pop? 364 licks — get counting.
-What is the Dum Dum lollipop’s “mystery flavor”? It’s the flavor that results when one flavor ends on the production line and another picks up.
-Believe it or not Cheerios once paired its cereal with Circus Peanuts candy — those spongy, thumb-size orange candies. Although not a success, it did inspire Lucky Charms. <- Found that one gross, but very interesting
-Swallowing gum…no it won’t stay in your stomach for years. It will pass normally.
-Milk Duds are actually duds, a mistake. Initially, the manufacturer wanted nice round balls. When the machine failed, the imperfections of the duds stuck.

Yeah, bad ink.  That Whitely woman, Mooch's classmate, stole my 'L' so she could get the ACA contract because, without that 'L', she's just another honky.

A bing image search for 'bad ink'.  Some were pretty horrid, but these little gremlins won my 'eeny meeny' pick.
