Justice League Gummy Snacks

Long time F.O.A.M.er Brent Almond sent in these pics of Justice League-branded Gummy Snacks, and it's awesome to see Aquaman on both front and back of the packages (it says "Collect Both Boxes", so Brent assumes there's a second box featuring Superman, Flash, and Wonder Woman). He also appears on the pouches inside the box:
So far, so good, right? Well, once you open the pouch to gnaw on the rubbery little treats, you see there's...
Batman, Superman, Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and...an orange Justice League logo! Aaaauuuugggghhhhh!! What the hell, Betty Crocker?!?

Thanks Brent...I think.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, the actual fruit snacks NEVER look as defined as they do on the packaging. So that JL logo may as well be Aquaman, for all intents and purposes.

I'm pretty sure Betty Crocker makes Scooby-Doo fruit snacks (my daughter eats them). They could have just used the Freddy mold and "bam" instant Aquaman...as far as Fruit Snacks go.

Yet another instance of Aquaman being dissed. It never ends really.

For heaven sakes...that's ridiculous!

These weren't at my grocery store yesterday. :-(

yeah, Aquaman is BARELY on the box at all, and then he doesn't even get his own gummi, but yeah, the Justice League symbol does...
