Scabbed Twinkie

An edible scab atop a Twinkie-like, ooze-filled, cupcake-shaped treat

Who doesn't like picking at scabs? Nobody, that's who.

I propose a Twinkie-like snack, in more of a cupcake shape. It would be filled with some disgusting ooze (to attract kids), such as a runny strawberry and lime jelly.

The best part of this vile treat would be a perfectly simulated, blood red, sugary scab. Kids could crack it in two, peel it off, nibble it slowly, and so forth - inevitably leading to a big, gross mess (which, of course, is cool!)

Yum, and perfect for Halloween.

       Yuck! This is so disgusting it would probably work. I love picking at scabs, I love picking at food. Why not? And instead of a pure fruit filling, top the fruit filling with a squirt of some vanilla/banana pudding or frosting to simulate oozing pus.

       *erk* - Edging to gross-out

       The strawberry filling I suggested was supposed to emulate blood, lime to make it taste more interesting. I don't think I could eat something with fake pus in it, though.   

       The idea is *supposed* to be gross, but not disturbing. I was watching a show on TV which featured lollipops with mealworm centers - that is disturbing.   

       The Queezy Bake oven and Creepy Crawlers and so forth are popular kids' toys, so why couldn't this be?

       Yes, and how about scab-flavored bacon?
