Greg from Lofty Pursuits used his antique candy drop roller to create Madness, his mixture of candies that all have the same red color but have many different flavors. He also demonstrates the Stroop effect.
Flavors have included: Apple, Blackberry, Peach, Lemon, Watermelon, Bubblegum, Sweet Butter, Sour Strawberry, Pineapple, Vanilla Chili pepper. However, caveat emptor:

Bonus video: the Stroop effect done in beautiful calligraphy:
