The weekend before Free Comic Book Day I was contacted by Mr. David Garth from the Parallax Corporation. He was telling me in a sentence most likely along with every major Ghostbusters fan site that the company has a new license to make and sell Stay-Puft marshmallows. And they already are!
Previously Omni Consumer Products had a license to make and sell Stay-Puft marshmallows. Their product contained squarish caffeinated marshmallows in a collectible rectangular box for $20. Unfortunately one of my boxes already past its expiration date when I received it.
New company, new ideas. Parallax Corporation’s box is probably more in line with how The Stay-Puft Corporation, if it really existed would be selling their delicious marshmallow treat in today’s snack world. It’s very competitive I’m sure. Only difference is they would never show an angry Mr. Stay Puft. Since this is for Ghostbusters fans, makes sense. If a fan didn’t want to display it that way all they would need to do is turn the box around.
Like O.C.P, Parallax Corporation is selling Stay-Puft marshmallows through Think Geek for a less costly price of $7.99. Which is feasible considering the new marshmallows are mini. Each box contains approx. 45 of them!
There is one caveat though. While I didn’t see this on the site, Chris from Proton Charging reported that Think Geek can’t ship the new Stay-Puft marshmallows outside the United States.
