You may remember in October I wrote a few posts about Ghostbusters confectionaries. (Ecto-Containment Tag) That is if you live in either the UK or a country where they can be shipped to. Since I imagine the cost of shipping candy which will either melt or expire could be very costly for an international company, in North America we either wrote about them or dealt with our emotions. Or both. 😀 One of… Read More

During the 1980s in America we had The Real Ghostbusters Ecto-Plazm Bubble Gum. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, December 12, 2013) Their was also that bubble game flavored toothpaste (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, December 13, 2013) for when kids thought it was awesome to brush their teeth with a bubble game flavor. Sadly the time would come when Ghostbusters gum would be a thing from a bygone era. The sands of time would slowly make… Read More

To add sugar to the American blood stream Kingsways (presumably) is producing Ghostbusters Jelly Pops. What the heck is a jelly pop? :p The language isn’t a barrier.

As it should be. :p The problem is, (at least for those of us on the “other side of the pond”) these American marshmallows are in the United Kingdom. Previously two… Read More

Retail barcode, a United Kingdom based retail blog has let ghostheads know (we knew this candy existed before then) that Kingsway, based out of of Loughborough UK makes Ghostbusters popping candy. I’m guessing these are similar to ‘Wonka’ Nerds candy. They come in two flavors, apple and strawberry. If nerd candy (the popping) kind isn’t to your liking Kingsway also makes Ghostbusters chocolate. Yes Please! 😀 

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… Read More
