In the 80s, apart from Camco, rat sweets were the next big thing.

Jeera candy was found in a variety of packages – from windmills to faces and slow cars.

This morning, however, a maid brought this for my friend’s daughter. And it was so kitsch that I kept it and was quite sure it needed to be featured on PII.

This bird is light-weight, uses bad plastic and has claws for a stopper. It holds around 100 jeera candy sweets, which are traditionally called rat sweets. I assume rat kaka looks like this (sans the colours, of course). The eye is a sticker that is scarily lifelike.

Makes for a perfect Halloween treat.

What you smoked when your dinky car stalled or your Barbie lost a shoe or your dog ate the homework. Not a good thing to allow kids to smoke this, but hey! We all turned out ok, didn’t we? Picture via  ACH.
