Crime and candy? Sounds dandy to this sugar addicted criminologist. This forensic set contains vials of candy “urine,” “blood,” and saliva. You can get it here.
It’s true: I am a degenerate candy addict. If you leave candy unattended, chances are I will eat it. Immediately. Seems like I’m not the only one. Artist Rey Reynoso brought this story to my attention: Last night, someone broke into a Pennsylvania home and stole a bunch of jellybeans. The burglar knocked out a window in the front door and swiped a jar of jelly beans off the dining room table. The rest of the home—and property—was left untouched. Police speculate the perpetrator was scared off before s/he could steal any valuables. As for me, I think maybe the thief simply had a sweet tooth. That said, I have an alibi for last night: I was home in New York, eating SweeTarts.
