Hey, I think my "Astro Pop" is busted. It's all backwards and there’s no wax on the end. Wait a minute, they're all like that. They changed them! I guess I can understand why. I can't tell you how many times I stabbed the back of my throat with one of these when I was a kid. I don't have to like it, but I'll accept it.

The strange thing about this treat is that its a hard candy, but its kind of sticky too. The point may be gone but the stickyness of this thing can still pull out fillings. It also gets really flexible when it gets warm and with the new shape it bends like crazy. I now have a piece of modern art instead of a candy treat.

The origional taste is still everything I remember, each colour having a very different flavour. What those flavours are I'm not sure, but they're great. A tasty, odd-shaped, fillings-puller isn't a bad description for any treat.
