I have a weakness for gummies. I love their tasty chew… but they’ve never formed a raid party and attacked me in numbers as goblins might.
Crawlspaces & Critters is arranging a Kickstarter that will support Children’s Miracle Network of Hospitals with donated goblins that might just summon such an army.
The company is two people, Michael and Russ, and they’ve now completed the processes and planning required. In particular, Michael wants to raise awareness that most donations to Children’s Hospitals are for small kids. What about teenagers? They need distractions and reassurance as much as small kids.
In this post, you can see some pictures of the goblin army of gummy sweets Michael and Russ will employ on this well-intended mission.
You can also sign up for Kickstarter alerts and get a notification when it’s ready.
I had a quick chat with Michael. Well, I asked one question “What about international?” I’m here in Scotland. Can the gummies reach me?
We don’t know for sure. Logistics are a mess worldwide right now, and moving food around is even more complicated. It’s not looking good. Michael didn’t seem to want to rule it out, but I’m not optimistic.
Crawlspaces & Critters has a commercial goal if you want to call it that, in addition to looking after teenagers in hospital. They want to be a gaming miniature manufacturer whose entire lineup is edible!
The secret sauce that the two problem solvers have been working on is a process that allows Crawlspaces & Critters to make large gummies so that you can tear off (and then eat) body parts such as tails and wings. It’s possible that this goblin army, and the other minis hinted at in the Kickstarter preview, are just the run-up to the big bad gummies like whole dragons.
The idea of gummy minis has history…
We already know who the Mother of Dragons is, and now, it seems, we have The Mother of Gummies too.
Spicy goblin gummies
Lastly, but perhaps not least, I think there’s reason to believe some of these goblin gummies will be pepper spicy! If the waters of international oceans don’t protect me, I’m up for that.
