Mike and Ike are re-uniting for the love of their fans and their passion for MIKE and IKE® candy. The company says the business partners will still be involved with music and art, but are now refocused on what they are most passionate about -- MIKE AND IKE® candy. Mike and Ike have fused their individual interests in an effort to make their candy better than ever with new packaging designs inspired by Ike and a new flavor, Strawberry Reunion, inspired by Mike’s hip-hop song “Strawberry or Die” that he produced last year. Strawberry Reunion and all other varieties of MIKE AND IKE® candies have amplified flavor with the addition of real fruit juices in each piece of candy!
Just Born, Inc., makers of MIKE AND IKE®, PEEPS®, HOT TAMALES® and GOLDENBERG’S PEANUT CHEWS® candies, recently confirmed rumors that the legendary candy duo, Mike and Ike, have re-united. The candy duo cited irreconcilable creative differences a year ago, which caused them to stop collaborating on their famous fruit chewy candies.
