Does anyone remember....aquarium candy?? Mon, 03/1/10 10:51 PM (permalink)
Hi all,
My friend swears that he used to have this candy when we were younger. He said it was called aquarium candy and came in a rectangular tube with toothpaste-type cap to squeeze out the gel inside. He says it was blue raspberry flavored.

I cannot find any reference to this anywhere (it is not the first link that comes up when you google "aquarium candy"). He may have the name wrong...or maybe he's pulling my leg and sending me on a wild goose chase.

Anybody remember anything like this? Probably early 90s - he grew up in Pittsburgh.

I always say if it existed it has to be on Google somewhere...but I am stumped.

    Here's one (still available) that matches the description, but not the name.  Perhaps he just called it that, since it looked like blue aquarium water.

      explainitagain,
       
      I just made a username so that I could answer this. I totally remember what you are talking about, down to the flavor, and I have been looking for it for a long time. It used to be sold at the gas station that my mom worked at, and it was my favorite candy. I have not been able to find it anywhere. I am glad it was 'Aquarium Candy' because when I got desperate I started to search for 'Fish Tank Candy', obviously with no luck. 
       
      I do believe that it is extinct, but at least I know I am not crazy thanks to your post. I was starting to feel like no one else on earth had heard of the stuff.

        This shows up - not sure if it is what you're thinking of.  Looks like a totally low-budget production.
