With brightly colored wrappers and enticing words like “creamy,” “whipped” and “crunchy,” it’s a wonder no one bothered to stop and think about the contents of the candy they’re consuming. CollegeHumor’s writers and graphic artists have updated familiar candy wrappers, rendering new and more accurate ones. Taking Wonka’s original “Runts,” they created a new box titled “Sugar” with the witty subheading “Shaped like healthy things” and sidebar “Still with shitty banana.” “Milky Way” — while still maintaining its signature color scheme — is now “Missing Nuts” with the blunt hint to “Just-Buy-A-Snickers.” These satirical designs make you wonder why no one has done it before.
