Is Lego candy a parent's worst nightmare?

I recently encountered Lego candy for the first time.  I've had this picture on file as a potential blog idea for the past few weeks.  My original thought when I first saw this stuff was "Wow, that is really cool."

But now that I've had some time to reflect, I'm starting to view it from another angle.

Aren't most parents terrified of their small child swallowing little plastic things like legos?  Isn't that pretty much the reason why they started putting warning labels on toys?

Obviously Lego candy is intended for older kids, but creating a food product identical looking to one of the worst things a baby can put in it's mouth seems to be sending mixed signals.

It brings to mind this spectacular old SNL skit with Dan Aykroyd and Candice Bergen:
