Have you ever wondered where those cuddly cute Nerd monsters come into play in the production of the candy? They create them in a highly unconventional way – they poop them out. It is a fact that your favorite crunchy fruit flavored candies are pellets of delicious poop. If you are diligent you can find Nerd monsters in the wild by tracking their rainbow colored droppings. My favorite nerds are grape flavored. I used to get them at the neighborhood convenience store on warm humid summer days between looming thunderstorms – where store clerks were outside running around with wild nerd traps looking to replenish their candy supply.
