As a testament to the staying power of the Adam West Batman series: even in the year 2008, writing up a brief bit about bat-shaped Reese’s peanut butter cups without falling back on hackneyed television references is accomplished only by sheer force of will. But it’s just amusing to see tie-ins like this: black and blue Bat-colored Reese’s Pieces, Kit Kats with the Bat-Signal symbol on them, and the peanut butter cups…especially the DARK chocolate ones.
While these are all well and good, why should Batman get all the tie-ins? Why not Two-Face’s Fun Dip? Candy sticks that you can lick and stick into sugar pouches. One pouch sweet, one pouch sour. Or Joker’s Skybar. Why? Because it’s chocolate with four different fillings, just like you never know what sort of madness you get with the Joker. And color it green. It can be done. Or Alfred’s Dairy Milk. The Cadbury classic. You wouldn’t need to do anything but put Michael Caine‘s face on the wrapper. Granted, that didn’t help Jaws: The Revenge, but even Sir Michael has limits.
Do you have any ideas?
