Yum Yums were late 80's plush
characters that had different themed scents. For example,
Peppermint Kitty (pictured above) had a peppermint candy theme,
and actually smelled like peppermint. We don't know about
you, but Peppermint Kitty looks more like a stuffed bear to us
than a cat. Of course there was a cartoon spin off (see
the video below).
