While shoving a bunch of Nerds in my mouth the other day (this is me typing, I sadly don’t meant that in a sexy way), I thought about the Nerds’ fatter, softer and sweeter cousins Dweebs!
The Willy Wonka Candy Company put out Nerds in the early 80s, and since us children rolled up Monopoly money and snorted up Nerds by the line-fuls back then, they expanded that shit in many ways including making their cousins, Dweebs. Dweebs looked like the giant butt pimples on a rainbow, and they were softer and a little bit sweeter than their more famous cousins.
Dweebs came out in the very early-90s and it blew the minds of young children because its box had three compartments instead of two like Nerds. We didn’t even know that was possible! Three compartments! It was like the 8th World Wonder. But Dweebs’ advancement in candy box engineering and their BBC (big, beautiful candy) bodies weren’t enough to keep them around. Dweebs were buried in the candy cemetery before the 90s ended.
So sadly, our mouths no longer get to taste and feel the sensation of a bigger, softer Nerd…unless you crush up a Nerd into dust and sprinkle that dust on a giant butt pimple before eating it. RIP Dweebs, you were gone too soon.
