This is a candy sucker (a lollipop, not a vacuum cleaner) that has a red LED embedded inside of it.
Not only does it have a red LED in it, the sucker has a plastic cap so you do not have to suck it all down at once.

According to the handle, this is "Radiant Strawberry" flavour.


To use it as a sucker, remove the outer wrapping, remove the plastic cylinder from over the candy portion, and remove the plastic from over the candy itself.

Suck on it as you would suck on any sucker.

To turn the red LED inside the candy on, press & hold down the pink button on the side of the sucker's handle.

To turn the LED off, just release the button.

If you want to suck more of the sucker later, just put the plastic cylinder back over the candy; it will be protected from dirt, hairs, tobacco fragments, and other foreign materials.

This appears to be a disposable product.
There is no obvious way to change the batteries; and I don't even know what size/style of cells it uses.

This is a candy sucker, not a flashlight. So I won't strike it against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a patio, run over it, try to drown it in the toilet, stomp on it, throw it, bash it open to check it for candiosity (well, it's already made of candy, so this would be pretty pointless), fire it from the cannonada (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a scanner-type device on a platform with a large readout or with a handheld wand; and the cannonada is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it other "punishments" that flashlights might have inflicted upon them. So this section of the web page will be a lot more bare than the same section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

Test unit was purchased at a Raleys in Sacramento CA. USA in June 2006.

UPDATE: 08-31-07
I saw another one of these (a blue one labelled as "Beaming Blue Raspberry") at Raleys in Sacramento a short time ago this morning (~9:30am PDT). I went ahead and ran it through the spectrometer.
