    Im surprised it doesn't seem to push TF anywhere on the package. Yeah, neat but lame.

    Wasn't expecting much from it and can't say I'm surprised.

    Bah. If they're going to do it properly, they should change the name in the UK back to Opal Fruits for the duration of the promotion.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. This is a total let down, though perhaps we'll get more of a TF cross promotion nearer to when the Movie hits.

    yeah, it is kind of a lame promotion. What this film needs is something big, flashy and noticeable to promote its overall greatness.

    Why is this a let down? It's pretty much what I was expecting. Starburst, yay!

    Is this a movie promotional tie-in? I don't think it is. Just a candy named Optimus Lime.

    This is an absolutely true story:

    Yesterday, I got in the car with my wife and said "Doesn't Mars make Starburst?".

    "I don't know, why?"

    "Because I think Optimus Lime might be a special flavor of Starburst."


    I would have posted this yesterday, but I forgot by the time we got home from my birthday dinner.
