Runts... I garnered this sugary-sweet trivia from Cash Cab (love that show on Discovery channel). Runts were created when the manufacturer was looking for a neater way to package/market Pixy Stix. If you're not familiar with Pixy Stix, they are basically just drinking straws filled with fruit-flavored sugar, which you then tip up and pour into your mouth. It's one of those things kids love and parents hate. The solution really upped the cute factor too!
