    Default Candy for North Koreans!

    link-candy story-cnn.com
    SEOUL, South Korea (Reuters) -- Candy may be dandy for North Korean children trying to grow tall, strong and smart in a country battling chronic food shortages.

    North Korea has developed a candy it claims is good for children and will help them increase their height, weight and IQ, a pro-North Korea newspaper published in Japan said on Friday.

    "Unlike medications that help growth by clinical methods or hormonal effects, the growth nutritional candy has no negative side effects," the Choson Sinbo said, based on an interview with the head of a nutritional research center in the North.

    Unlike sugar-packed and chocolate-covered sweets, the North is hoping that children in the reclusive state will enjoy munching on their nutritional candy made of seaweed, beans, carrots and sesame seeds, the newspaper said.

    The candy report comes on the same day a top U.N. agency official said the food shortage crisis in North Korea is growing more severe by the day and the communist state is dispensing "starvation rations" to its population.
    Mmmmmm, candy...

    It's just a shame they don't have any seaweed, beans, carrots or sesame seeds isn't it.

    nutritional candy made of seaweed, beans, carrots and sesame seeds, the newspaper said.
    It sounds like some kind of freaky diet bar rather than a sweet...

    It's a Stalinist haven, no pleasures allowed. Candy is too much fun and you might want to move to the US so you can have it every day.

    Why not SK invade NK?

    It seems a bit unfair to have another nations troops die for what is essentially a civil war...

    It is not great. What if Hitler invaded Canada and made all Canadians slave of German people, wouldn't that be great? Seriously, don't play around like that unless it's about your own country.

    Don't do that again. You must understand the situation of the German people after the beginning of World War 2. Many of the people executed in camps before the invasion of Russia were GERMAN Jews, GERMAN blacks, and any GERMAN person who openly opposed Hitler. My people suffered under Hitler's rule as well. And don't even get me started on what the Soviets did when they took East Germany....

    Wiederholen Sie nicht das. Sie müssen die Situation der deutschen Leute nach dem Anfang von Weltkrieg 2 verstehen. Viele der Leute durchgeführt in den Lagern, bevor die Invasion von Rußland DEUTSCHE Juden, DEUTSCHE Schwarze und jede DEUTSCHE Person waren, die öffentlich Hitler entgegensetzte. Meine Leute litten unter Richtlinie Hitlers außerdem. Und nicht erhalten Sie mich sogar begonnen auf, was die Sowjets taten, als sie Ostdeutschland.... nahmen
