New ‘Tailgate’ Candy Corn Features Hot Dog and Hamburger Flavors

Brach’s has dabbled in the past with wild flavors for their candies, with their ‘Taco Truck’ Jelly Beans that featured beef taco and horchata flavors debuting earlier this year. This time around they’re channeling big football energy with their new ‘Tailgate’ Candy Corn.

The Tailgate Candy Corn boasts the following flavors: Fruit Punch, Vanilla Ice Cream, Hot Dog, Hamburger and Popcorn. We know that candy corn already is polarizing treat, but to trot them out in those flavors are sure to be a lighting rod for differing opinions. Not gonna lie, I can see myself knocking back a combo of Vanilla Ice Cream and Popcorn candy corn with some confidence that the duo would make a flavorful union.

If you’re looking to add something new to your summer bbq, Brach’s Tailgate Candy Corn are now available exclusively at Walgreens participating locations.

The History of Gushers, Fruit Roll-Ups and Fruit by the Foot

Going down memory lane, nothing is quite like the 90s with our favorite fruit snacks like Gushers, Fruit by the Foot and Fruit Roll-Ups. Have you ever wondered how snacks like that even became a thing? Well, fun fact, they actually started as a fruit filling for cakes in 1975. 

General Mills fruit snacks have delighted consumers for decades. In 1975, General Mills’ Research and Development team developed the filling for a cake mix which eventually, after tests and revisions, debuted as Fruit Roll-Ups in 1979. Do you remember when these had tattoos for your tongue?

In 1992, Gushers arrived and became the innovative fruit snack because of its juicy liquid center surprise with every bite. The fandom grew when advertisements left an iconic stamp on the minds of adults and youth alike, particularly the iconic advert where heads turned into fruit. 

Throughout the 90s, Gushers made its way into pop culture through partnerships with Jurassic Park, Nickelodeon, the Goosebumps series and more. I remember my sister loved Gushers as a kid and I simply couldn’t understand where the red juicy center was coming from.

Fruit by the Foot also made its debut in the 90s and was a hit for its long rolls of wild flavors and colors. I literally used to eat these while sitting in front of the television after school, separating the fruit snack and the paper, bite by bite.

Today, General Mills is the largest manufacturer in the fruit snacks category and continues to lead category growth. The brand’s fruit snack portfolio includes Annie’s, Fruit Roll-Ups, Fruit by the Foot, Mott’s, Kid Equity Shapes and Gushers.  

Now, nearly three decades later, General Mills is ushering in a new era of fruit snacks… in the Metaverse. Gushers recently dropped a limited-edition designer sneaker — available exclusively in the metaverse.

Lucky Charms Introduces Limited-Edition Magic Gems Cereal

Lucky the Leprechaun is known for his delicious collection of magical charms, which are obviously the best part of Lucky Charms cereal. This summer, Lucky is adding a bright, new and limited-edition Magic Gem charm to your next bowl.

The backstory for the Magic Gems goes as such: “Magic Gems have been stowed away in the goblin den for centuries and hold the power of rainbow vision to see in the dark, helping whoever finds them navigate their way through the darkest of places.”

Perhaps this is a metaphor for delicious Lucky Charms being a beacon of light in the darkness of bleak breakfast cereals — or maybe I just waked and baked again.

Limited edition Lucky Charms with Magic Gems is available now at your local retailer nationwide.
