Name that Candy Contests

There are two challenges going on right now from candy companies that are engaging consumers to get involved.

New Flavor Selection

The first comes from Just Born and Mike and Ike. They’re looking to add a new flavor assortment to their current repertoire that includes:

imageThe items up for a vote are:

  • Fruit Sherbet
  • Lemonade Blend
  • Smoothies
  • There’s no listing for what flavors are actually in any of those assortments (for all I know, they’re the same assortment of flavors, they’re just calling them different names!).

    You can vote at the Mike and Ike website. By voting you’re giving them an email address ... and you don’t really win anything, except perhaps the satisfaction of the flavors you want.

    New Mascots

    Endangered Species is prepping a new bar and are looking for an animal to feature on the package.

    imageYou can vote here. Give your top three choices. For more about endangered species, check here at the IUNC Red List. And of course don’t suggest an animal they’ve already covered, so check those out here and here.

    I’m not gonna say what my votes were for, but there weren’t any whales or dolphins on my list (as you might think).
