Road Kill Candy

I need to get some of this stuff on principle alone:
Kraft Draws Ire for Road Kill Candy

"Animal rights activists are disgusted by a new candy from Kraft Foods Inc. that's shaped like critters run over by cars — complete with tire treads."
Of course they are.
"The fruity-flavored Trolli Road Kill Gummi Candy — in shapes of partly flattened snakes, chickens and squirrels — fosters cruelty toward animals, according to the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals."
Fosters cruelty toward animals, how? Are kids - the age of which will buy this stupid shit - going to be driving down the road aiming at wildlife? I seriously doubt it.
Yup, PETA is still stupid.

Personally, I think it should be flavored like roadkill if they're going to sell it as such.

I think what worries PETA is the children will think actual road kill is just bloody, hair-covered gummi candy and begin eating it.

It's tricked me a time or two in the past already.
