One of the things I'm enjoying about text-to-image generators like DALL-E2 is how it has stuff about common brands in its training data, but it still manages to completely garble them.

Please enjoy these DALL-E2 attempts at Halloween candy favorites.

Yellow candy bars with blue lettering on them reading "Burtrfner", "Bungteer", "Bungeferr", and "Buningdeter"

Bags of round candies, most of which are either much too large or much too small to be skittles. Labels read "Skills", "Sile", "Shillle", "Sllklee", and "Skite".

Wrapped candy bars showing airy or crumbled textures. Text reads "Nuischee", "Chusckce", "Chussree", and "Clusche"

Small candy bars wrapped in an excellent approximation of a kit-kat logo and color scheme. Some of them even read "Kitkat" or "KitKatz" or "Kiltkat"

Reasonable approximations of the logo and color scheme of snickers bars, although the text reads "Snicskers" and "Sinckkers" and "Snicker"

The kit-kats and snickers are the most competently rendered. But they get much worse if you put them in bowls.

Bowls contain small red-wrapped candy bars, although some are partially unwrapped. Some say "Kiit" or "Kkit", while the candies in other bowls just have white bars or black lines on them.

Bowls of candies, most of which are only partially wrapped. Some have labels, but they don't match the snickers color scheme, and say things like "Sinker", "Saner", "Snikks", and "Sanks".

Please, help yourself to these very normal candies.

Two green bowls full of unwrapped gummy candies. The shapes are unidentifiable, except for one yellow square that reads "real" in black text.
