You Can Buy A Giant Ring Pop The Size Of Your Fist At Walmart

The holiday season is quickly approaching and once we pass Thanksgiving, we’re going to be sweating to figure out what to gift our loved ones.

For those with an eternal sweet tooth, perhaps the move is a Ring Pop.

No, not the everyday one that you can pick up at any convenience store. We’re talking about one that’s the size of your fist.

Bazooka Candy Brands has just released a Sweet Strawberry Giant Ring Pop that weighs in at about 700 grams of pure candy.

For context, the massive candy ring comes out to about 47 servings in a single 24.7 ounce package.

It’s essentially a brick of pure sugar in the most baller vessel imaginable. Kind of a perfect gift for anyone with an appreciation for the sweeter side of life.

You can find the Giant Ring Pop at participating Walmart, Cracker Barrel, IT’SUGAR and Dylan’s Candy Bar locations.


Ring Pop is Planning to Release a Gummi Version of Their Iconic Candy Jewelry

You remember the move, get a few points right on that spelling test and your teacher let you snag a Ring Pop, a little plastic ring with a suckable piece of candy jewel on top. Word on the street is, we can expect a gummi version of the iconic candy to be hitting stores early 2013.

Ring Pops carry a lot of nostalgia for my generation. Hell, I even proposed to a girl back in kindergarten with a Ring Pop (true story, my cruel mother thought it was the funniest thing to watch me get rejected), so my emotional ties to the candy run rather deep.

Bazooka Candy Brands, the parent company to Ring Pop as well as other cavity-inducing treats like Bazooka Bubble Gum and the Push Pop, recently revealed that they will be expanding the signature Ring Pops line with completely edible gummi versions.

The new Ring Pop Gummies will be available in strawberry, cherry, watermelon and blue raspberry flavors. You can expect the new candy to be in stores come 2013, supported by a national marketing and promo campaign, and will be available in 1.7-ounce pouches and five-ounce peg bags with a SRP of $1.19 and $2.29.

All I know is that I’m so utterly excited to finally eat the entire ring. I mean, all those damn confused childhood years of having to stop at the base of the ring once the candy was sucked dry. How come they didn’t call it “Only-eat-the-thing-on-top-of-the-Ring-Pop”?

Oh well, now that the new Ring Pop Gummies are entirely edible, I won’t have to wonder what the RING Pop actually tastes like.

What, I’m the only one?

It’s Halloween time, and whether you know it or not, the type of candy you hand out to trick-or-treaters might be defining you as an individual. While the following infographic is one group‘s take on the matter, it does lead into an interesting discussion on candy nostalgia and what current Halloween treats say about your personality.

Do you give out toothbrushes? Maybe you’re a Fun Dip type of person. You better figure it out, because one means you’re sweet deep down, and the other might allude you’re harboring some dark secrets.
