The 1980s were mostly a great time due to revolutionary tv shows such as Puttin’ on the Hits (a precursor to RuPaul’s Drag Race) and innovative furniture like Craftmatic Adjustable beds, but they were also a scary time due to Jimmy Swaggart and New Coke.
The 1980s were also terrifying because they dispelled a long-held myth that fruit was good for us. In fact, in this commercial for wacky candy Bonkers, we learned that fruit was dangerous. So very very dangerous.
Bonkers candy was a real conundrum. It looked liked Hubba Bubba, but you swallowed it! That is, if the fruity flavor didn’t kill you first. And now Leaf Brands Inc has announced that they will be bringing the candy back by the end of the year.
