Historic Candy

I dropped a file folder in between my desk and the wall. It is a very narrow space and my hand was just too thick to reach in between and grab it. So I began to think like Nancy, and looked around at my resources. Pencil? Nope, too short. Thin notebook? Nope, it was too flimsy. Ruler? There wasn't a ruler anywhere around.

So then I decided to search the kitchen, where we keep all sorts of knickknacks and tools. After opening several drawers, I came across something that looked vaguely familiar, although I had never seen this specific piece before:

A candy stick! I heard a rumor that this candy was a helpful visual reference for a past game (can you name the game?). This looked sturdy, long and thin enough for my challenge. Amazingly, it did help to retrieve my folder in between the desk and wall. My point to prove: random resources can indeed help you overcome a challenge if you think creatively the way Nancy does. :)

I wonder how old that candy really is...and if it's still edible.

Not sure if this counts, but the gum in "The Final Scene" on the wand comes pretty close to this scenario. :D

And in Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon, we get to use a taffy stick, I believe, to get a key in a grate. :D

#13 Last Train to Blue moon Canyon, right? You needed the candy stick to reach the crypt's key under the drain grate.

It's from Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon. Nancy uses it to get the key out of the grate.

Also, there is that pop thing from The Haunted Carousel that she uses to get the letter down...

But, that is the candy. =)

Ohh! That is funny! I remember doing that in Blue Moon Canyon! It's kinda ironic that that would happen at Her Interactive...:)

Wow, you guys are good! This candy was used for a reference for the artists working on Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon, meaning that this candy stick is at least 6 years old. >.<

Whoa!! That is a pretty old piece of candy! And now that you mentioned it, that candy stick looks almost exactly like the taffy in TRN! Thanks for pointing that out, we love behind-the-scenes information like this! :D
