Pure hideousness

I started a new company in 1998 named Troika Games. Gary, a friend of mine and ex-coworker from a previous company, found this appropriately-named Norwegian candy bar the following year and gave it to me for my birthday.

I thought this would be a wonderful addition to my label collection, a candy bar with the same name as my new company. I opened the wrapper and bit into the bar…to taste one of the most hideous candy bars I had ever experienced! This bar is made from marzipan layered with fruit jelly and coated in milk chocolate. It was nasty! And the worst part is that the flavor stayed in my mouth for a long time, even after several glasses of water, until I finally ate some Altoids to get rid of it. Blech!

But I love the wrapper!
