RIP Lucas Acidito. The candy that defined our childhoods was banned in several states for containing excessive amounts of lead. Gone, but never forgotten. No, but seriously, we’ll never be able to forget how much Lucas we ate -- especially when we start to experience strange lead-related side effects twenty years down the road. 
You can still find other Lucas products on shelves. And, if you get really lucky, you might even stumble upon a retailer that sells Lucas Acidito, Super Lucas, and Lucas Limon.
