yeahbuwhat?

You are looking at Russian BLOOD Candy.  seriously.  one of the ingredients is Hemoglobin.  It is made with real cow's blood.  According to Serious Eats this is:

 "...Russia’s equivalent to gummy bear vitamins —a treat to trick kids into taking supplements so that they grow tall and strong (like the bird-man mascot).

Go lookin your local Brighton Beach corner store... see if you can find some.  wtf.
