They’re the latest in his CandyAnatomy project, which can be found on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. And I think exquisitely detailed anatomical diagrams are a much better fate for licorice and those gross foamy candies than pressing them on innocent trick-or-treaters who didn’t do you any harm.
