What candy would each TOS character be?

What late 20th/early 21st century candy would TOS characters be if the transporter screwed up royally and converted them?

This is so dumb it might be fun. Many of you played the spot the trapezoid game earlier.

Do one character or many.

Spock: York Patty, b/c he's so cool (unemotional).

Simon van Gelder: ZagNUT.

Elaan of Troyius: Clark Bar; it's a rather crusty and unpleasant thing IMHO.

Okay, have at, if anyone wants to. If not, I won't cry. I'm just tired of all the threads up already.

What idiot posted a thread like this? Oh yeah, heh heh . . .

Actually, I coulda swore I posted this in the TOS forum. If a MODERATOR is watching, would you mind switching it over to that one. People are probably lined up waiting to post . . .

Chekov would be a red sucker.

Uhura . . . a tootsie roll chewy.

Kirk . . . anything full of nuts.

Kirk: Red-Hots. Has a real kick.

McCoy: Chicken Bones, especially when confronted with a transporter.

Mirror Universe Spock: Candy Mustache. Goes with the goatee.

Scotty: Altoids. I canna take it any more, captain!

Chekov: Screaming Yellow Zonkers.

Okay, what kind of tree would the TOS characters be?

Re: What candy would each TOS character be?

If Kirk, Spock and Bones were in the transporter together, they'd turn into a Three Muskateers bar.

And if we broaden the scope beyond TOS (see, now you can stay in this folder), I think Data would make an even better York peppermint patty than Spock. Of course, Spot would be a KitKat.
