MIKE AND IKE® Welcome Back Retro Flavors
CHERRI AND BUBB® and LEM AND MEL®

Bethlehem, PA (February, 2013) –The makers of MIKE AND IKE®  announce the limited return of MIKE AND IKE® CHERRI AND BUBB® and MIKE AND IKE® LEM AND MEL® candies available now through April, 2013.  The candies first became a hit in 1989 (CHERRI AND BUBB®) and 1991(LEM AND MEL®) and have been long sought out by candy lovers for some time.

Both retro flavors combine two great tasting fruits for a sweet and unique combination.  CHERRI AND BUBB is a blend of Cherry and Bubblegum flavors and LEM AND MEL is a mix of Lemon and Watermelon flavors.

“We are very excited to bring back CHERRI AND BUBB® and LEM AND MEL®,” says Donald Houston, Senior Marketing Manager for MIKE AND IKE®.  “We hope this will inspire good memories from our loyal fans and introduce a new group of MIKE AND IKE lovers to these favorites from the past.  Perhaps this might even inspire Mike and Ike to rekindle their friendship and business relationship.”

MIKE AND IKE® CHERRI AND BUBB® and MIKE AND IKE® LEM AND MEL® are hitting shelves now and will only be available through April 2013.  Both flavors come in a 5 oz box with an SRP ranging from $1.00-$1.39.

The MIKE AND IKE® split shocked the world last spring, generating a high volume of fan and celebrity reactions.  The independent and talented duo has decided to follow their true passions. Mike is a musician at heart and produced a music video; Ike is an urban artist and a lover of art. Their split is not unlike that of other famous celebrity duos like Simon and Garfunkel or Lennon and McCartney.

 I just love Mike and Ike it is a classic candy that is delicious. I am so excited that they are ringing back CHERRI AND BUBB® and LEM AND MEL® classics from the past for a limited time.  The cherry is my favorite, it reminds me of the cherry drinks I would drink as a child. My family loved the retro flavors, and it was great to go back in time for a little bit, and remember candy from my childhood. My daughter loved the bubble gum flavor, I think the lemon and watermelon was my husband’s favorite, he nearly demolished the whole box in one sitting.  
 
  I think the special edition boxes are so cute, this will be a great addition to that loved ones Easter basket . So if you are looking for a great candy or a cool Easter basket filler that kids will just love make sure to pick up a couple of the special Mike and Ike limited editions and I will make sure to pick up some  for the big kids like my husband.  So if you would like to experience these retro flavors, make sure to act fast they will only be around for a limited time, through April 2013, be sure to stock up now.
