Winner: Least appetizing holiday treat

I was perusing Allrecipes.com for a gingerbread recipe and I saw this disturbing image. The ad for Safeway heralded "Learn to make sushi candy!"

OK, I love sushi. I'm not a sweet fiend, but I like the occasional bit of candy. But the thought of picking something that you associate with raw fish and biting into a fruit roll-up and marshmallow instead triggered my gag reflex. What is wrong with cookies?

Gross. That's right up there with the Twinkie sushi picture that someone sent to me via email a few months ago.

I went to a Halloween party & someone brought candy sushi. Everyone came away from the table disappointed, thinking it was the real thing (as if the Swedish fish on top didn't tip them off???) It's a good idea for kids, I think. Maybe. Possibly. Then again, they'll be the ones disappointed later on when real fish is introduced.
