The packaging catches your eye, and so does the name. It’s not a name you see every day. At first, the taste is pretty good, but it starts to lose its flavor. In the end, it tastes like what I would imagine plastic to taste like. It’s the same thing with the aftertaste. It smells a bit fruity. It is chewy and a bit hard. It would most likely appeal to kids. It doesn’t really seem very healthy either; the first ingredient on the list is sugar.

The Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge Bar tastes like a disgusting combination of artificial juices and plastic. When I opened it, it flaked and cracked as I tried to tear a piece off. It didn’t seem like healthy food. It is hard and chewy and not for people with braces. I don’t know who would buy it; it seems unneeded. The packaging doesn’t look very appealing, but you can tell the company tried. It is small and easy to open and transport. It even smells artificial! Overall, I wouldn’t eat it … ever.

To make someone eat this is worse than torture. If I wanted to get someone to tell me something [a secret], I would certainly feed them this nauseating Airhead wannabe candy. I’m surprised I didn’t break a tooth on the rock-hard substance. Candy is not the right way to describe this product.

Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge Bars are gross! They are hard and taste exactly like their name – Toxic Waste. It smells like feet, and when you rip it open, it breaks like plastic. The bar also turns your tongue and teeth blue. I would not recommend small children eat this snack; they could choke. It made me feel like I was going to hurl. The packaging isn’t appealing at all. They look like Airheads. Believe me; the world doesn’t need Toxic Waste bars!

The packaging is not that appealing. It’s kind of hard to open, because it gets stuck while you’re peeling it down. It’s smooth but sticky and it tastes like a Laffy Taffy or a Now and Later. It smells like a Laffy Taffy. I think the Toxic Waste bars will be directed to children. I don’t think the world needs them, because they are just copying the same taste of a Laffy Taffy.
