My oldest son, Nick (soon to turn 18), had problems with water in his ears when he was a child.  The water impaired his ability to hear, which affected his ability to pronounce words.  He always called Mike & Ike's "Puc-a-ducs".  How you get Puc-a-ducs from Mike & Ike is beyond us, but it stuck and to this day, we still call them Puc-a-ducs.

I staged this on our kitchen counter.  I put down a black cloth and piled on the Puc-a-ducs.  Since it was mid-morning and cloudy, I didn't need any extra lighting.  I did use a tripod and aperture priority. 

Now don't you just want to run out and catch a sugar buzz?

You should trademark that name in case you ever manufacture candy!
