The lights are on
Candy is delicious. Space Invaders’ characters are great. Combine these two things, and you’ve got a sugary treat that will appeal to just about anyone with a mouth—even if they didn’t spend their childhoods plugging quarters into old arcade machines. An Etsy merchant is selling Space Invaders-inspired hard candy, and it looks good enough to eat. For $7, you can score a bag of a dozen of the treats, which come in an assortment of six flavors. What flavors, you ask? How about key lime, pineapple, orange cream, salt water taffy, blueberry cheesecake, and strawberry lemonade? Good enough? Excellent. There is one caveat, though—these things are for adults only. As merchant Holly Green warns, “Under no circumstances do I recommend these for children, as the sharp edges are just too dangerous.” Yikes!

I remember growing up there was a bait shop near us that had a broken Space Invaders machine. You could put your quarter in, hit the slot just right, and get your quarter back. I used to play marathons on one quarter. I miss that machine. :P Not a fan of hard candy, but I may have to get me some of these.
It looks like these were made using the ice cube mold I found at a boutique gift shop. I picked it up. Having Space Invaders invading your drink is pretty cool. These look great!
Dangerous indeed. But I'm taking my chances with these sweet little threats.
Meh, I would have preferred gummies.
Haha, cool beans.
Om nom nom.
I have a space invaders ice tray
7 dollars for a dozen hard candies? I can get some generic ones for about 50 cents at the corner store
Space Invaders is my most favorite classic game ever, just like how the Atari 2600 is my most favorite classic console ever!
That's a lot of money for a little candy (unless those are bigger than they look).
AO candy? What sort of treat is this, anyway? LMAO
I'd buy these. Yummy!
Just too bad that Easter is over now...
