Bum a smoke from the hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog has taught me so much over the years. He’s shown me that big hair is fine and ankle socks are still stylish.  And now he’s pushing cancer sticks — how trendy! [lights up]

[blows out smoke] Okay, so these aren’t real. They’re candy cigarettes, and fruity ones at that. UK:Resistance found this 24-pack of Sonic the Hedgehog endorsed/branded stick candy cigarettes in the Phillipines.

The only thing the packaging tells us is that these are “New Tasty 100%,” so we’ll assume the following from the picture:

  • these taste of green apple, pineapple, and strawberry
  • they are freakishly long
  • they make you run fast
  • they might have something else in them to make you run fast

I’m guessing that Sonic’s extended finger is like a wordless warning, urging you to only take one at a time. Full picture after the jump.
