Greetings from the Omnigraphic Blogopticon. On view are vile sticky things dragged from the attic, snarky commentary on the world at large, and all-encompassing ennui. All that and a weird rubbery smell. A horrible time will be had by all.

Magically Delicious

Not only are these worm lozenges, they're sugar worm lozenges. Celebrated sugar worm lozenges. Not that the people on the label appear to be celebrating or anything; in fact they look positively depressed. Perhaps they haven't yet had their lozenge.

Mmmmm, sugar worm lozenges.

You'd be depressed if you had to eat worm lozenges too, I'd bet!

But they're sugar worm lozenges. The sugar makes 'em special.

Mmmmm, wormy...

I'd like to have a word with that Dr. C.F.Wieland.

Do you suppose the worm is in the lozenge entire, or just in segments?

Worm lozenges? Is that some kinda tapeworm weight loss thing? Or are they for people who already have worms and want to get rid of the damned things?

I suspect the Victorians were just riddled with worms, since I've found Worm Cakes and various flavorful Worm Syrups in my old catalogs & mags.

Or else this is a culinary taste treat I wasn't previously aware of.
