What It Is
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is made of marshmallow, but what would the other Ghostbusters characters be made of if they were food? Find out in the alternate universe known as FunEdibles. The FunEdibles Ghostbusters collectible vinyl figures mash up a popular Ghostbusters character with a food item. FunEdibles Slimer Lime Gelatin Treat imagines what the green ghost from the movie would look like if your Aunt Sally had molded him into a jiggly Jell-O salad. You'll never look at Jell-O molds the same way after this. There's also Pizza Venkman. Billed on the box as being “fresh, hot & fun”, we're sure that Venkman would say that about himself whether he was a human or a slice of pepperoni pizza. The vinyl pizza figure wears the original Ghostbusters uniform and carries a proton pack on its back. And then there's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. This vinyl figure has more of a marshmallow shape than the character had in the movie, but the figure still wears the character's signature hat and red necktie. The collectible figures range in size from three inches to four inches, and each one is sold separately.
Is It Fun?
Fans of Ghostbusters and food will have both cravings satisfied with zero calories thanks to this line of collectible vinyl figures. The mash-up of food and pop culture icons is just silly and gives fans a new look at some of their favorite Ghostbusters characters.
