What? Mike and Ike are Splitting? It can’t be….I LOVE Mike & Ike candies. Well after much research, it appears that the candies will stay the same and you will still find all their varieties where-ever candies are sold. PHEW! I couldn’t go without my Mike & Ike’s! This chewy fruity candy has a yummy lasting flavor. These candies have been our fun movie treat, in our sleepover stash, and a favorite at all parties since I was a little girl. Now that I’m a mom I love to buy some of my favorite candies and use them as rewards when my kids do extra special deeds or help out around the house. I also love wrapping the movie theater size box up for birthdays for my kids. Its such a YUMMY TREAT!
Now that Mike & Ike have split they want to HEAR what you THINK about it….and YOU COULD WIN an Apple Ipod Touch! Details below:

ANOTHER favorite treat to put into my candy rewards is Welch’s fruit snacks……but NOW Welch’s and Frankford candy partnered and developed a NEW CANDY! Creating a wonderful combination that the kids LOVE.
Welch’s Filled Licorice
From Frankford Candy: “By adding a jelly-filling inside a juicy-flavored licorice, Frankford has created a new licorice experience with the introduction of Welch’s ® Filled Licorice!
Welch’s Filled Licorice combines a soft licorice outside with a flavorful filling inside. The unique jelly filling is made with real fruit juice and fruit pectin to deliver real fruit flavors. This new one-of-a-kind licorice treat is a blend of soft and chewy textures with a bold, real fruit filling.”
Welch’s Filled Licorice reminds me of when I was little I used to love fruit snacks that had a soft gooey center or juice filled….and NOW Welch’s Filled Licorice can fulfill my gooey treat desires! At first bite you get the gooey cetner and end with the sweet taste of strawberry or grape licorice.
A downside to living in Hawaii is that if you accidentally leave these treat in your car it is NOT a good thing, the goo tends to melt out of the center….but if you’re my kids you just go ahead and LICK the package to get all the yumminess!
Welch’s Filled Licorice is available in Concord Grape and Strawberry flavors. Welch’s products are sold throughout the United States and in approximately 50 countries around the globe. For more information on Welch’s, visit www.welchs.com.
BUY: Purchase either of these treats at your local supermarket and try them out for yourself.
