Check out the “Bling” pops that Bazooka, the maker of Ring Pops, is sending to the Dallas Mavericks. These are Swarovski crystal encrusted Ring Pops in the Mavericks signature colors.

Topps Garbage Can-dy

As a kid, there are no two things more enticing in the world than candy and toys. So when the two combine together in some way it can have quite an irresistible impact. While PEZ dispensers might be the undisputed king in this novelty treat category, another contender from my youth that still tugs at nostalgic heartstrings is Garbage Can-dy.

Vividly I remember purchasing this Topps candy at the convenience store near my Grandma’s house. The package consisted of a small plastic garbage can that you could pop the lid off of to open. Inside you would find a variety of colorful shaped pieces of candy “garbage”: fish bones, bottles, old tennis shoes, cans, etc.

Bazooka Gum Reloaded

Categories: Candy,Gum,New Candy

New Bazooka Gum

Bazooka Gum, the classic American gum we all know and love, is changing. Out goes the hard, square gum and in comes a twist-wrapped, rounder gum billed as softer and longer-lasting than the original and it will allow bigger bubbles. The 5 cent price tag will still be the same as it was in 1947 though. A comic will still come with the gum, but it’s on the wrapper instead of folded inside.

Debuting in stores across the country beginning this spring, the all-new Bazooka Bubble Gum line includes:

  • Bazooka Bubble Gum Twist Wrap Pieces: individually twist-wrapped Bazooka Bubble Gum in the new softer chew, longer-lasting flavor formulation, available in 300 count tubs, 120 piece boxes, 70 and 150 piece lay down bags, 3 lb. “Big Mix” bag and Sugarless Bazooka “Party Box.” Two all-new taste-sensations make their debut in ’06 as well: Cotton Candy & Watermelon!
  • Bazooka Bubble Gum Gumballs: featuring five kid-favored flavors including Original, Strawberry, Blue Raspberry, Watermelon and Grape
  • Bazooka Bubble Gum Filled Pops: choose from four fruit-flavored lollipops—Orange, Cherry, Grape or Green Apple—filled with a Bazooka Bubble Gum center
  • New Collectible Bazooka Premiums: now kids can “Get All-New Cool Stuff” when they redeem their collected comics. New items include fun spy gear like recording pens and binoculars, Bazooka t-shirts, watches, gumball machines and baseball caps.

The retooling of the brand coincides with the All Candy Expo which starts on June 6. Bazooka Joe himself is also morphing from a classic cartoon icon into a backwards-hat-wearing leader of a multi-ethnic gang. His new posse now includes characters such as DJ Chang (a DJ), Kevin Griffin (an awkward guy AKA Nerd), and Wolfgang Spreckels (a German exchange student). I guess the old Bazooka Joe and his gang just weren’t hip enough for today’s kids.
