Jolly Ranchers are tasty, but taste nothing like fruit like Justin said.
Grape and watermellon are prime examples. Grape tastes like any other
purple candy, and watermellon doesn't taste enough like water to be
realistic. They are sweeter and better than the actual fruit though.

They come in a few different shapes. There are small ones that are just shy
of an inch long, maybe a quarter of an inch deep and thick. Then there are
long slender ones a few inches long. They also came out with some new round
ones because I guess the other ones could get to sharp. I think they also
have some on a stick too.

I have some artistic talent, but not so much with icons. I may mess around
with the images too. Maybe make them look like the marshmellows from Lucky
Charms--big a puffy. :-)
