This is why we don’t take candy from strangers. This creepy Halloween candy is brought to us by artist Andrew Bell. Part of his ongoing series, The Creatures in my Head, the scary candies include Kisses of Death and Kill Kats.

What Does A Quadrillion Sour Patch Kids Look Like?

What happens when a 31-year-old man sits lonely in an apartment at 2 a.m., and has an insatiable urge to visually depict massive numbers? If you’re Tim Urban from WaitButWhy.com, you choose Sour Patch Kids as your unit of measurement, and don’t stop until there’s a mass of candy larger than Earth.

Tim begins innocently enough with a row of Sour Patch eXtemes… Then a group of 100. From there, the flood gates open, and through some heavy-duty math and the copy-paste function, Urban is then able to visually depict unheard-of numbers of the tooth-decaying treat.
