Anatomical Lighthouses

This isn't witchy or crafty but it's kinda funny so I'm posting it :)

We went to visit my family in Ottawa last week for March break. My uncle was on a business trip when we arrived but came home on the second night we were there. My uncle calls to my son "Hey, look, I've brought you a souvenir." and hands my kiddo a box of gummy lighthouse candies.

I open the box to dole out some sweet goodness and discover that the candies don't exactly look like lighthouses. They are kind of a lighthousey shape, but they are soft and bending over to the side slightly. There also isn't a lot of detail to distract from the fact that they are shaped, very similarly, to a certain body part.

I can't begin to tell you how awkward I felt handing these out to the wee kiddies. The grown ladies had a pretty good giggle about them though.
