The Poisonous White Rabbit

As it turns out, one of my favorite candies from childhood was announced to have a poisonous substance — formaldehyde. The candy? White Rabbit Cream Candy.

I haven’t eaten White Rabbit Cream Candy in ages, but the news made me sad. Do you remember eagerly chewing on this creamy candy? And more than that, do you remember feasting on the edible paper that was wrapped around the candy? Ah lovely. That edible paper was my favorite part too.

Fortunately, the brown candy of White Rabbit (Butter Toffee) does not have formaldehyde. Unfortunately, I think more people preferred the chewy white one. The apparently poisonous one. Oh well.

So on your next trip to your neighborhood sari-sari store, steer cleer of the chewy White Rabbit cream candy. If you want to go down memory lane, maybe you can stick with Peter Butterball or that cola candy that came in violet wrapping.

    This is really sad. I really really love that creamy candy and I don’t like the butter toffee. Thinking of it, it’s a good thing that nobody has that candy in the stores around us. And it’s been years since I last had one.

    What do these companies get in putting inedible substance in their products? It’s just so sick.
