Backpack mounted flamethrower-looking device which expels semi-liquified marshmallow (or similarly edible substance). Enraged target (e.g., bear, crowd, godzilla) gets hit with goo which retards their movement then begins to solidify. Target will inevitably go through short, enraged "YOU GOT ME!!" period which will quickly subside when they realize that hey - that's yummy! While they won't be able to eat their way out in any reasonable time, there would be time enough for law enforcement personnel to detach the baddie from the ground and lift the ensconced no-gooder into the paddy wagon (or suitable transport).

Noone hurt. Justice prevails, the courts take over, world saved.

(partially baked ; UnaBubba suggested Edible Rubber Bullets, I think it's far enough from that.)

       Just when you think you've searched the site thoroughly to ensure your idea isn't completely baked, you find Jester's EdiTerrent.   

       Let me know if it's too close to that and I'll kill this quickly...sigh.

       I think there's enough differences between the 2 excellent, separate but unequal ideas to warrant this gooey croissant. Good form.

       What next? Ballistic popcorn?

       Makes me think of the ending of GhostBusters.

       That was more like an edible WMD.

       Would't the melted marshmallows be hot? 2nd degree burns don't make people happy!
