I Do Not Understand Reality, Special Dum Dums ™ Edition

Standard

Good Evening:

I hold in my hand the wrapper of the signature product of the Spangler Candy Company, a Dum Dums ™ lollipop. They are free for the taking at the Wells Fargo branch located in the Upper Haight, near the intersection with Cole Street. But this is no ordinary signature product of the Spangler Candy Company, a Dum Dums ™ lollipop. This is not the classic raspberry, strawberry, root beer, or other flavor.

This is, and I quote, the “artificial MYSTERY FLAVOR” signature product of the Spangler Candy Company, a Dum Dums ™ lollipop.

So I stare at this thing, and I have to ask myself: what might be a “natural MYSTERY FLAVOR?”

PS–In answer to your question, if I could describe the taste, it wouldn’t be a mystery, now would it?

PPS–All right, all right; orange-ish, papaya-ish, and mango-ish. Somewhat. Kind of. Sort of.

PPPS–Happy New Year!
