Maxell M&M's Earbuds Will Probably End Up In Your Kid's Stomach

iPod accessory maker Maxell is going to release music player earbuds that look like many kids' favorite candy-coated chocolate candy. What could possibly go wrong?!

Even the packaging, by design, screams "EAT ME!" And, also just like the candy, these buds come in multiple colors for maximum toddler confusion: Red, pink, blue, orange, and white.

At $10, they're pretty cheap, which is good because ER visits aren't. Available "soon," possibly in the candy aisle or next to Maxell's other new product, the Pencil Scalpel.
