King, the company behind "Candy Crush," is coming out with a new addictive product based on the iPhone/iPad App. If you've got a sweet tooth and a knack for puzzle games (or no knack at all), get ready for Candy Crush candy!
That's right, you're going to be able to actually eat the candies featured in the game. You'll be able to buy Jellyfish, Sour Fruit Gummies, and Mixed Fruit Tummies online at Dylan's Candy Bar stores in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles starting on November 1.
Based on September, 2013 AppData figures, approximately 54 million players log on to Candy Crush Saga every day. When you have such a large audience that recognizes your product, it makes sense to capitalize. Candy Crush candy seems to be a logical and appropriate expansion for King. Yahoo News estimates that the game alone brings in close to $100 million per month. With the IRL candy on top of that, it looks like King will definitely be making a fine fortune.

According to People, the candy will be sold at $4 a box. King does not yet have plans to produce a chocolate product at this time. Chocoholics are still safe for now. Then again, the chocolates in Candy Crush might not be so successful in reality because they certainly aren't desirable virtually. This is especially true when you've played the same level 25 times and chocolate keeps covering up the one bubble you need to pop!
