For children, there are a few things that interest them in terms of their growing up and adjusting to their environment. To help them cope with this, things like poop emoji candy have become popular go to items. These are products that are simply made but designed to look like the social media emojis for poop.
Children are also connected or wired in a way which helps them follow the many trends in social media. There are trends for them, and one of them are emojis, which are symbolic of their states of minds or feelings. Candy is good for any child, but when it becomes a symbol for their being human with necessary functions, they have added value.
In fact children do recognize the symbols that they are close to or know well. The emoji is an important symbol of a vital chore they need to understand and perform well. This makes the candy more like a talisman, a keepsake, a reminder of what they are supposed to do well and therefore grow and adjust to society.
The poop candy are poppable, chewable, easily digested, and kids cannot have enough. This means that they may want this at any time, or after meals and for snacks. The thing is to help them balance their wants to their needs, which is about nutrition, although, the things are small enough not to make a difference even when eaten in some number.
There is a premium to have this kind of candy available commercially. The typical buy would be for parents who take them out in large volumes or in large bags. The stuff would probably last kids a week or less, but the supply should be there for them to access, as substitute perhaps for cookies in a jar.
Parents can maintain any combination of cookies and candy, sweets for an occasional reward or for snack time. Kids know where to find them but may follow the system of distribution reliant on their accomplishing things. That would be a way to create order in a home, one that is based on love and sweet things.
Poop is not really poop or connected to the love of the thing. But the symbology behind it says how it is something that adds responsibility to the view of children. Sweets that are eaten like this represents and end product that is related to how they learn domesticity and toilet training that belongs to this domesticity.
There are other kinds of sweet stuff of course, but the current trend or demand includes the poopy things. There are any number of companies manufacturing them and there is usually no branding involved. The major brands do not feature these, but the uptake is addressed by other manufacturers of generic but good stuff.
In any case, the trend may end, but there is something about this that spells long term. In fact, you might see this and other types of emojis features on the front rows of displays in grocery stores. Also, as mentioned, they are edible and handy to have, as well as affordable.
