    Road Kill Candy!

    Activists outraged at new 'Road Kill' candy

    TRENTON, N.J. Animal rights activists are disgusted by a new candy from Kraft Foods Inc. that's shaped like critters run over by cars complete with tire treads.

    The fruity-flavored Trolli Road Kill Gummi Candy in shapes of partly flattened snakes, chickens and squirrels fosters cruelty toward animals, according to the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

    "If you look across the Gummi category we certainly have many products that are offbeat, and that's what we were doing in this case," Baumann said. "We didn't mean to offend anyone."
