The Return of Mike & Ike

Did you hear the news? Mike & Ike are back together and I got to go to their reunion party!!!

I remember the day my 8 year old noticed the scratched out Mike on the package of Mike & Ikes and then at some point the scratched out Ike, we followed the story from the sidelines, wondering what was going on with our favorite chewy candies (that I allow and even enjoy in moderation).  Now with the premiere of their movie trailer, The Return of Mike and Ike, the candy duo is reunited and better than ever.

With the support from Grammy winning artist, Nelly, Mike and Ike are back and more passionate than ever about their candy.

With new packaging (shown here in giant size by my sister in law) and a new flavor, Strawberry Reunion, inspired by Mike’s hip-hop song “Strawberry or Die” all of the flavors better than ever and made with real fruit juice.  I can get behind that, can’t you?

  1. Never tried these. Not much of a candy eater but your sister-in-law sure looks thrilled.

  2. I didn’t even know they broke up! I buy mike and Ike’s for Purim.

  3. Hmmm…. These were the little sugary candy boxes that my kids traded for the healthy carrot sticks I sent for school snack!

  4. I always wondered what on Earth was going on with Mike and Ike. Now I’m wondering what on Earth Nelly is doing with Mike and Ike but also I don’t care because they’re back!

  5. I had no idea something happened with Mike & Ike, I feel like I’ve seen them in stores since forever.

  6. It seems like I missed this whole thing! I buy Mike and Ikes every year to decorate our candy sukkot but never noticed than anything was amis!

  7. I had no idea that they were no longer. I guess those candies can sit on the shelves forever. Sounds like a fun party with a tasty treat!

  8. I am so sad I missed it! SO glad you were able to go and represent us! We are crazy for Mike and Ike and Hot Tamales :-) !

  9. and your sis in law is SO cute!!

    Did you know the owner of Mike and Ike is Jewish? His niece is a good friend of ours.

  11. I can’t believe it! My kids love these, and I also ate these as a kid.
