California Milk Board Lends Famed Tagline to New Line of Candies
BERKELEY, Calif., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Candy lovers and GOT MILK? fans can now get a 'sweet' taste of the popular ad campaign with GOT MILK? Caramels(TM), a new line of nutritional candies bursting with caramel and branded with the memorable tagline. Manufactured by confectioner Sherwood Brands under license from the California Milk Processor Board (CMPB), the product will be available in stores starting late August/early September. (Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20020826/LAM083 ) The buttery-tasting caramels, fortified with low fat milk, calcium, iron and vitamins A, C, D and E, bring the beloved campaign alive in an exciting new snack. Sold in the candy aisles, the soft and chewy treats are available in 3 delectable flavors (Original, Chocolate and Strawberry Caramel). The nationally-distributed product is available in California at select grocery chains and convenience stores across the State. The 5.8 ounce bags retail for approximately $1.79 to $1.99 each. "Sweets and milk are a match made in heaven, but not always great for the waistline," says Jeff Manning, CMPB executive director. "GOT MILK? Caramels go great with a cold glass of milk, not Gatorade." The CMPB began its product licensing program in 1995, and the tagline has appeared on a range of consumer goods including teen and baby apparel, Barbie dolls, Hot Wheels racecars and kitchenware, among others. In 1998, the CMPB licensed the tagline to the Milk Processor Education Program (MilkPEP), creator of the celebrity Milk Mustache advertising campaign. The launch of GOT MILK? Caramels will be supported through local promotions and in-store advertising. **To receive a product sample or to request a phone interview with Jeff Manning with the CMPB and Katherine Owens with Sherwood Brands, please contact Romina Bongiovanni, 310-385-1697.
