Well there are 0 bids on it so far which means their is still hope for humanity!

In another 200 years when the earth is filled with smog someone will be kicking themselves because they didn't buy that snickers bar bag filled with air. And it really is a conversation piece, just look at us.

What's just as good is the shipping. To get to my place was $17.53. Didn't realize air weighed so much.

But this is expensive air. The insurance in itself is a fortune! Could you imagine filing a claim with UPS? I'm sure it would go something like this: Well, in the contents of the box was a bag of air. And now the air is leaked from the damaged box. I demand you to replace the air.

I wonder if the air smells like a snicker bar?

I'd bet as much money as I can waste (which isn't much ) that it's a BS auction. I myself could get a candy bar out of the wrapper and reseal it perfectly in all of 30 seconds.

If it were real, however, I could see paying maybe half that if I were a collector of oddities...

And to think that over the past couple of decades I have had a couple of packs like that out of halloween candy packs....I could have been rich!
