Mike and Ike Steps Back in Time and Brings Back Retro Faves

For those of us who are still a little torn by the recent split of Mike and Ike (tears), there is a ray of hope.  For a limited time, you can stock up on! 


The makers of MIKE AND IKE®  announce the limited return of MIKE AND IKE® CHERRI AND BUBB® andMIKE 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.

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.
