Wax Lips -- were you supposed to wear them, or eat them? Neither alternative was especially rewarding. As a disguise, wax lips were quite ineffectual, and as a candy, well...few kids I knew would even classify wax lips as a candy at all. Wax lips suffered from the fact that the main ingredient was wax, which is not an edible foodstuff. Eating a full set of wax lips of any flavor was not unlike chewing up a scented candle without the wick.
