Bilar Wants You to STOP!

Take a look at this candy I picked up in Sweden last week. It’s all about prohibition:

There’s the don’t walk candy:

The no pets allowed candy. [I ate all of these, so no image.]

The no running candy. [Um, same problem as above]

Is this candy supposed to be subversive? Is the message, “In a world of ‘don’ts’ here’s to engaging in the legal vice of sugar!”

…Or is this really just subliminal messaging, designed by the Swedish government to control its citizens?

I think it’s the latter, and note that since polishing off a bag on Friday night I have not jaywalked, taken my dog anywhere, or done any inappropriate running.

I’d also like to note that it’s popular in Germany. Hmm…
