If you love gummy candy, you know Trolli. The company makes all kinds of chewy, sweet, and pucker-inducing confections from worms to octopi and beyond. Now, it’s about to boldly go where few if any gummy candy producers have gone before with a new creation: buildable gummies. Because candy is great, but candy you can play with is so much better.

The latest in Trolli’s line of sour treats is called Sour Gummi Creations Martian Mix. Talk about a mouthful. Each bag is filled with a mix of seven different alien-themed shapes like alien heads, space rings, and alien bodies. The candies come in strawberry, blue raspberry, mango, watermelon, lemonade, and pineapple flavors and can be put together 216 different ways, according to a press release. There’s no guarantee you’ll discover all 216 before devouring a bag, however.
