    I'm guessing it's a 7-11 Slurpee cross promotion.



    edit: Mars? Hmmm.

    When I first saw the email, I was thinking they had spies planted at Botcon 2006 and saw the massive Corona consumption and wanted to take advantage of that this year.

    Sad it is just some sort of candy.

    Heh. My first thought was, "Cybertronian margaritas?"

    Skittles and Starburst are made by Mars, so yeah, probably one of those.

    Or, maybe they're going to try fruit-flavor coated M&Ms, much like Jelly Belly JBz. Dark chocolate + key lime IS a good combination.

    Mars, Inc. also makes Uncle Ben's rice, and Whiskas and Pedigree cat food. Maybe one of those'll be lime-flavored.... :p

    I just realized something. While at Wal-Mart looking for new TFs I spotted fruit drinks with the Spiderman 3 logo on them. Can't believe I forgot about those when I made my first post. They are identical to Hi-C or Capri Sun. Maybe that is what this is. It's not candy, but a drink. *shrugs*

    Maybe. On the list of Mars's US products, the only beverages are Flavia products, which are those single-pack coffee/tea/cocoa things often found in hotel rooms. But maybe they're branching out.

    Fie upon you, sir. FIE, I say!
