White Rabbit Candies Contain Melamine

So this was posted on The Consumerist awhile back, but looks like I finally get a chance to share it with you guys: Rabbit sweets toxic, too. These White Rabbit-brand Creamy Candy is a very common Chinese sweet, usually consumed during the holidays (i.e. Chinese New Years). According to this news article, it appears that Melamine was found inside the candy, which can cause kidney problems and ultimately cancer. Just shouting a warning for those who still consume white rabbit candy. I remember eating a bunch of these when I was a kid.

Since we’re on the topic of food, here’s another snack soon to be gone also reported on The Consumerist, is Mother’s Cookies abruptly shut down. I’m deeply saddened by this news as I’m a big fan of their circus animal cookies. Those frosted cookies were like crack and I could probably down the whole bag in 1 sitting. Of course I’d get super sick because of that. Maybe I should start stocking up on these cookies. *sniffs*
