Spangler Candy Brings On The Smiles With Dum Dums Pop Art

Bryan, OH February 2009:

Dum Dum Drum Man® displayed in Iconic Artwork.
Because "Everyone Loves a Dum Dum!™" (http://www.dumdumpops.com), Spangler Candy has launched a fun "Pop ArtTM" promotion which places their famous Dum Dum Drum Man® along with other iconic images.

This series of "Pop Art", introduced on 2 pound Dum Dum Pops gusset bags in specially marked display cases, features the first limited edition designs including "An American Classic", derived from Grant Wood's famous American Gothic, and the "World's Most Famous Smile!" based on the Mona Lisa. Order Pop Art bags online at http://www.spanglercandy.com/.

American Gothic is a painting by Grant Wood from 1930. Portraying a pitchfork-holding farmer and a woman in front of a house of Carpenter Gothic style, it is one of the most familiar and parodied images in 20th century American art. Parodies of the image have been numerous for generations, appearing in postcards, magazines, cartoon, advertisements, and television shows. In "An American Classic," the Dum Dum Drum Man, wielding a large pop, stands in the place of the farmer.

The Mona Lisa is a 16th century painting by Leonardo da Vinci and now hangs in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. The painting is a half-length portrait and depicts a woman whose expression is often described as enigmatic. Because of its popularity, many artists created modifications and caricatures, including Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol. In the "World's Most Famous Smile!", Mona Lisa dreams of the Drum Man while holding Dum Dum Pops' signature Mystery Flavor™.
