Punky’s Candy!

Nowadays, when kids want to feel like real badasses and ingest some bad ass shit, they probably buy an 8 ball from their friend with their lunch money (or snort the innards of a Tide Pod). But back in the 80s and 90s, us kids had real bad ass shit to ingest, shit that was way more bad ass than 8 balls and Tide Pods. Like Punky’s Candy!

Up until a few weeks ago, I had no idea that Punky’s Candy was a thing that doesn’t exist anymore. The Willy Wonka Candy Company started selling Punky’s Candy (which had nothing to do with Punky Brewster) sometime in the 80s, and by the mid-90s they were discontinued because nobody was buying them. They were basically like pill-shaped Smarties. They were sweet and sour and had little flavor crystals embedded in them. They came in flavors like cherry, orange, watermelon and fruit punch.

Yes, Willa Wonka was appropriating the punk culture with Punky’s, but they were so punk that they didn’t care. I bet after Charlie took over the company, he listened to 10 seconds of a Ramones song in the 80s, thought he was all punk and channeled his angst into his art and created Punky’s! That’s totally what happened.
