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.

Mars bars renamed to Believe

Mars Believe

To show support for the England football team (soccer to us yanks) in the upcoming World Cup, Masterfoods is renaming their Mars bar to “Believe”. This is the first time since it was created in 1920 that the chocolate bar will change. The name will change later this month and will revert back to Mars after the tournament ends in July.

They have created a website to mark this occasion at http://www.marsbelieve.com/ though the only thing there right now is a countdown to the launch day of Believe. I’d love to have one of these wrappers! (hint, hint)

UPDATE: A kind fellow in the UK has said he has sent me one of the wrappers! Thanks, mate!
