Starburst Links With C4 For New Energy Drink

The energy drink space is a crowded one, so standing out from the homogenous mass takes a lot. C4 Energy drink knows just how to do just that with its latest partnership with Starburst candy.

This new energy will come in everyone’s favorite Starburst flavors: Strawberry, Cherry, Orange, and Lemon. I won’t be surprised if Strawberry sells out first.

The STARBURST ® candy flavors will be sold in 16 oz cans at C4Energy.com, Amazon, and at national retailers like Vitamin Shoppe, Publix, Gold’s Gym, and 24 Hour Fitness. The Cherry and Strawberry flavors will be sold at additional retailers including Quik Trip, Sheetz, and many more.

It’s key to note that the C4® Energy x Starburst beverages, are made with no artificial flavors, colors, or dyes, and contain zero calories, sugar, or carbs.

New Light And Fluffy Starburst Airs Are Coming Soon

Not to be confused with the latest exclusive sneaker drop, Starburst Airs are a new iteration of Starburst candy that boasts “softy & squishy” features.

New Starburst Airs are a gummy candy that are aerated, which is what contributes to the light and fluffy texture of it. Pillowy bites of Starburst Airs will begin hitting shelves at select retailers this fall, with nationwide availability beginning in 2022.

Available flavors include strawberry, lemon, orange and cherry in Original packs, and sour kiwi, strawberry, pineapple, passion fruit and mango in Sour Tropical packs.

New Starburst Duos Combine Two Flavors Into The Same Piece Of Colorful Candy

Starburst is known for its various fruity flavors and neon-like hues, such as their vibrant pink strawberry or the almost blinding yellow lemon. Their newest creation takes two of these flavors, as well as a pair of colors, and jams them together into the same candy.

Called Starburst Duos, the candies will be sold in packages featuring two different blends. The first one brings together strawberry and watermelon, while the second is a mixture of blue raspberry and lemonade. As Team Yellow Starburst for life, I’m partial to the latter, but both are pretty fruity.

You’ll see more advertising and notice on these come summertime, but you can already find the new Starburst Duos in major retailers nationwide. They’re in small Single Packs (pictured above) for $0.99 each as well as larger bags for $3.19.

Fans of Skittles and Starburst will be happy to know that the two are planning to spice things up with their new flavors.

A new Sweet Heat line exists according to People, and we could see it as soon as this winter.

Those who attended the Sweets & Snacks Expo in Chicago got a first look at the new candy, as that’s where Wrigley decided to debut the fiery snacks.

According to reports, the Skittles will still have a fruity core, and the five flavors within will consist of Fiery Watermelon, Blazin’ Mango, Flamin’ Orange, Sizzlin’ Strawberry, and Lemon Spark.

The Starburst flavors will be similar, with a Fiery Watermelon of their own, Strawberry Mango, Flamin’ Orange, and Pipin’ Pineapple.

The pricing will be similar to the rest of their products, as single packs for both will be $0.99, and a bag will be about $3.19.

Now we can taste the muy caliente rainbow.

Woman Saved 4 Years Of Starburst Wrappers To Make A Dress

You probably remember the girl who made a wedding dress out of Taco Bell wrappers, but someone just took that idea to the next level.

Artist and designer Emily Seilhamer spent that last four years of her life saving 10,000 Starburst wrappers just so she could transform them into a stylish, and colorful dress.


It wasn’t by accident, as she literally saved the wrappers for this occasion, kind of as an homage to how she and her husband met. The first time these two locked eyes, Emily’s now husband shared a pack of Starburst with her. The two even had the dress featured in their wedding, sitting right next to their gift table.

A sweet act on his part, turned into something sweeter, literally.

Once family and friends got word, they did their part to help by giving her wrappers of their own.

When she finally had enough wrappers, she organized them by color, ironed them out, and started linking them like chains. With elastic thread, and some sewing skills, Seilhamer, was able to put together a legit dress.

Seilhamer has a knack for recycling things into dresses, as she recently turned her grandparents’ old flowered kitchen wallpaper into a dress as well.

The couple should totally keep collecting enough wrappers to make a tuxedo, and recite their vowels in complete Starburst-wear. Just sayin’.

Taco Bell announced on their Facebook page that they will be launching their new Starburst Freeze on Thursday, Oct. 9. After heralding the release to their fans, the fast food chain assured them, “It’s okay, you can freak out now.” We are indeed freaking out, Taco Bell.

The first flavor, of what presumably will be expanded if successful, is Starburst Strawberry Freeze. Fans of the Starburst soft-taffy candy will be pleased to know that the Freezes do in fact taste remarkably like pink Starbursts. Nice.

Starburst Freeze will be available at all Taco Bell locations throughout the U.S. They are available for purchase in 16- and 20-ounce cups. Customers can also show up during the Happy Hour window of 2pm-5pm daily and get a regular Freeze drink for $1.

So…get one now and come back again at 2?
