Bryan, OH - March 2004: Spangler Candy Company has introduced gum-filled lollipops to the famous Dum Dum Pops® brand selection. Each Dum Dum Gum Pop® features a bubble gum filling surrounded by one of six popular Dum Dum flavors: cherry, apple, grape, watermelon, strawberry, and blue raspberry.
Full-color packaging highlighted with bright blue and pink draw consumers to the shelf to add this brand new lollipop to their candy purchase. The 8 gram (.28 oz.) miniature Dum Dum Gum Pops are available in 7.7 oz. and 12.1 oz. bonus bags, packed 24 per case. Larger 35 gram (1.23 oz.) Jumbo Dum Dum Gum Pops, with more gum and more candy, come in a 24-count display box, packed 12 per case.
"Dum Dum Gum Pops are a great treat for Spangler Candy customers who like a little something extra in their lollipop," said Jim Knight, Spangler's Director of Marketing. "Candy lovers get six Dum Dum flavor favorites followed by bubble gum fun!"
Dum Dum Gum Pop wrappers will be included the Dum Dum Pops "Save Wraps for Stuff" program. The program allows consumers to save wrappers and purchase unique Dum Dum Pop promotional items. "We encourage consumers to visit our website for information about items available through the program," Mr. Knight continued. "We also hope they will use the opportunity to vote for their favorite Dum Dum Pops, and now Dum Dum Gum Pops, flavors."
