The absolute worst in Y2K hype I've ever seen, I found a bag of candy in the gas station this morning for US $0.69, called Y2Kandy. It's actually quite funny, though.

NEW! VERSION 2.000 COLOR CHANGING
*** OVER 45 PIECES ***
Y2KANDY

CANDY MEMORY CHIPS

WARNING!
MOISTURE-ACTIVATED
MOUTH CHANGERS


On the back:

<!>
CRASH YOUR MOUTH WITH COLOR!!!

<?>
WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN???

ASSORTED FLAVORS IN MYSTERY COLORS!

FOR ADDITIONAL MEMORY, BUY ANOTHER BAG.

Then this final instruction on the wrapper, "OPEN HERE TO DOWNLOAD FUN."

Yes I tried them (I bought two bags so I could save one, but later on, I'll probably buy the rest), even though they've probably been sitting on the shelf untouched for at least 8 months. They come in orange, purple, yellow and blue (the blue ones taste pretty nasty, though), they're shaped like really old memory chips, and they taste suspiciously like SweetTarts.
