Vuvuzela Balls

Tween sensations Justin Bieber and Brenda Song are set to endorse a new candy from Haribo called Vuvuzela Balls. Now that the news is out of the way… what?! What kind of a name is that? It instinctively makes me uncomfortable. Yes, I know the vuvuzela is the loud horn thing that buzzed throughout the World Cup games, but still. The name is apparently not necessarily “a keeper” (soccer pun, I kill me) and could be changed. From a marketing perspective, I can see how naming the candy after the now popularized horn can be beneficial to Haribo. I don’t even follow soccer, and I knew what it was. Vuvuzela Balls are bound to catch someone’s attention and cause a double-take. But, still. Eh, I’m just not sure I can handle “Would you care for a Vuvuzela ball?” Ok, I wouldn’t talk about it, but I’d eat it.

The candy is described as resembling an M&M but more chocolaty, without a shell, and noisier. Funny, I’d never thought M&Ms were terribly obtrusive in volume, unlike the vuvuzela. Nevertheless, the yet to be released candy has piqued my curiosity and I hope to be reviewing it soon. You can bet your sweet Gummy Bear I’ll be trying one.

    Huh? The name doesn’t make any sense, unless you can blow them and make a noise like a Whistle Pop (anyone remember those?).
