BELLA THORNE JOINS WITH RING POP LOLLIPOPS

****
STAR CANDY

Bella Thorne





Ring Pop® lollipops will once again tap top pop acts to help choose the candy’s next sensational flavor. Bazooka Candy Brands, maker of Ring Pop, has partnered with top teen acts Bella Thorne and The Ready Set for a Facebook flavor face-off. Both participants have selected a unique new Ring Pop flavor and will rally their fans to visit the Ring Pop Facebook page and vote for their flavor choice. The competition kicks off today, January 17 and runs through February 4. The winner of the competition will see their Ring Pop flavor arrive on store shelves this summer and will receive a donation to their favorite charity. This Facebook flavor-faceoff is a follow-up to last year’s highly popular program which featured flavors selected by Mindless Behavior, Kicking Daisies, and the winning duo, Megan & Liz.



“The Ring Pop brand has long been associated with pop culture, and we thought there was no better way to choose the next flavor than by calling on some of today’s pop talent to mobilize fans to vote for their favorite,” said Scott Utke, Director of Marketing, Bazooka Candy Brands. “Last year’s competition exceeded our greatest expectations with thousands of fans from all over the country casting their vote, and we are excited to see what flavor will come out on top in 2013.”



For three weeks, the Ring Pop Brand will host the “battle royale” on its Facebook page for fans across the country to voice their choice. Both Bella Thorne and The Ready Set will reach out to their fans via Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube in an effort to build support for their customized Ring Pop. Both participants taste tested flavors with Bella Thorne selecting Strawberry Lemonade and The Ready Set choosing Cookie and Cream. The participating acts are also as different from each other as each of their flavors.
