Candy Press Release: Butterfinger And G4 Announce Nationwide Search To Find Fourth Member For Butterfinger® Defense League

Categories: Candy,Candy Giveaways,Candy News,Candy Press Releases,Chocolate Candy

How far would you go to defend your BUTTERFINGER®?

Butterfinger has partnered with the G4 TV network to announce a search for the 4th member of the Butterfinger Defense League (BFDL). Two lucky semi-finalists will meet current members of the BFDL — Erik Estrada (CHIPS), Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk) and Charisma Carpenter (Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel) — and G4’s Attack of the Show! hosts Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira at Comic-Con in July when G4 broadcasts the announcement of the winner live.

Butterfinger is looking for those who best demonstrate an ability to ensure the Butterfinger tagline “Nobody’s Gonna Lay A Finger On My Butterfinger!” Audition videos must show a unique ability that would make the candidate a great defender of Butterfinger and thus a perfect fit for the BFDL. Two finalists will win a VIP trip to Comic-Con in San Diego where one will be named honorary member of the BFDL and receive the $20,000 grand prize.

Entries are being accepted through June 24 at

The Big Idea

I got an email today from the producer of the CNBC TV show The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. They wanted me to appear in their Minutes to Millions segment as a “candy expert.” So, I’m flying to NY on Monday to film it! How awesome is that? And… one of the other panelists is Kevin Nealon from SNL! I’m not sure if I’m more excited about being on TV or meeting and sitting on a panel with Kevin Nealon!

Hmmm… I just checked Kevin’s website (I just called him Kevin, like we’re all buddy-buddy) and he says he’ll be there at 1:00 AM – I hope his site is wrong because I was told taping starts at 2:00 PM. His first book “Yes, You’re Pregnant but What About Me?” just came out. I should get a copy and ask him if he’ll sign it for me, though I don’t want to appear to be a huge fanboy.

I’ll take lots of pics to show everyone and I’ll post the air date as soon as I find out!

UPDATE: Just found out it will air the same night, Monday, May 19th, 10PM EST.
UPDATE2: I setup Twitter on my phone so I will live Twitter the whole process of going on TV :) Follow my Twitter account.

Black Dog Licorice Art On ABC’s Pushing Daisies

Ken Bailey licorice dog
Is anyone else enjoying ABC’s Pushing Daisies as much as me? My wife and I thoroughly enjoy it – it’s quirky, odd, weird, and funny all at once. It’s like a good weekly Tim Burton movie.

I noticed in one of the episodes that Ned has a poster/print on the wall that says “Naturally Sweet Candy Chews” at the bottom but I couldn’t see the top of it. In the most recent episode, the one featuring a new candy shop (run by a character played by SNL alum Molly Shannon) that just opened across the street from The Pie Hole, I finally saw the whole print – the rest of it says “Black Dog Licorice”.

The Midas Touch: Skittles Style!

Categories: Candy,Candy Videos

As kids, we all heard the story of King Midas, the greedy king who wished everything he touched turned to gold. It’s a great fantasy until you find the reality of it all. As a Candy Addict, have you ever had the same dream as King Midas, except with candy?

Well, Skittles has the answer for you. It’s a new twist on King Midas’ tale, except that Tim seems less than pleased with his “Skittles Touch.” The commercial itself is quite dark and you can’t help but feel sorry for the poor guy. I guess there’s really more to life than candy for some people. At least he won’t starve to death, right? Right?
