Angry Birds Star Wars Fruit Gummies and Exploding Candy!

CC_Angry Birds Star Wars TITLE PLATE

Hot on the heels of the release of Angry Birds Fruit Gummies Second Edition comes Angry Birds Star Wars.

While I wasn’t too surprised to see the new “Second Edition” expansion of the Angry Birds Fruit Gummies lineup, these were an unexpected treat.  Today I’ll be covering this new Star Wars themed release, as well as Healthy Food Brands’ new Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy!

It’s fantastic to see the 3.5 oz Angry Birds gummies line continue to expand, as it just makes it more and more fun to try to keep up and collect the various boxes that come out.  So let’s get to the fun.  This is a set of five different Angry Birds Star Wars boxes, and here they are:

Healthy Food Brands - Angry Birds Star Wars Fruit Gummies - 1 of 5 Luke Skywalker Bird - candy box - 2013

Healthy Food Brands – Angry Birds Star Wars Fruit Gummies – 1 of 5 Luke Skywalker Bird – candy – 2013

Healthy Food Brands - Angry Birds Star Wars Fruit Gummies - 2 of 5 Leia Bird - candy - 2013

Healthy Food Brands – Angry Birds Star Wars Fruit Gummies – 2 of 5 Leia Bird – candy – 2013

Healthy Food Brands - Angry Birds Star Wars Fruit Gummies - 3 of 5 Han & Chewie Birds - candy - 2013

Healthy Food Brands – Angry Birds Star Wars Fruit Gummies – 3 of 5 Han & Chewie Birds – candy – 2013

Healthy Food Brands – Angry Birds Star Wars Fruit Gummies – 4 of 5 C3PO & R2-D2 Birds – candy – 2013

Healthy Food Brands - Angry Birds Star Wars Fruit Gummies - 5 of 5 Darth Pig - candy - 2013

Healthy Food Brands – Angry Birds Star Wars Fruit Gummies – 5 of 5 Darth Pig – candy – 2013

That’s the full set of five boxes from the new Angry Birds Star Wars gummies release.  I should point out that the flavor assortment found in these is the same as the first series of regular Angry Birds gummies, and not the revised flavors found in the new second series.

Next up is something a little different.   Healthy Food Brands is branching out from the fruit snacks and gummies area and are now releasing Angry Birds Exploding Candies (very much like the confectionery classic Pop Rocks).

I believe they’re also doing a standard Angry Birds release of these, but thus far I’ve only found the Angry Birds Star Wars versions.  There are six unique flavors here and unlike the set of gummies boxes, which all come in a shared shipper case, these exploding candies each come in their own flavor-specific display box.  So each flavor pack has a unique UPC.

Let’s get to ’em:

Healthy Food Brands - Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy - 1 of 6 - Luke bird - candy package - February 2013

Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy – 1 of 6 – Luke bird Cherry – candy package – February 2013

Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy - 2 of 6 - Leia bird - candy package - February 2013

Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy – 2 of 6 – Leia bird Strawberry – candy package – February 2013

Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy - 3 of 6 - Han & Chewie bird - candy package - February 2013

Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy – 3 of 6 – Han bird Blue Raspberry – candy package – February 2013

Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy - 4 of 6 - C3PO & R2D2 bird - candy package - February 2013

Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy – 4 of 6 – C3PO bird Lemon – candy package – February 2013

Yoda, not seen on the Angry Birds Star Wars gummies boxes, does get his own flavor and pack of Exploding Candy:

Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy - 5 of 6 - Yoda bird - candy package - February 2013

Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy – 5 of 6 – Yoda bird Green Apple – candy package – February 2013

Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy - 6 of 6 - Darth Pig - candy package - February 2013

Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy – 6 of 6 – Darth Pig Grape – candy package – February 2013

That’s the full-set of six Angry Birds Star Wars Exploding Candy packs!  It’s possible that you may not find them all at every outlet, though I’d imagine most stores that get them will try to carry all six flavors.

So that’s it for today’s coverage of these new Angry Birds Star Wars candy offerings.

See you next time!
