Easter Week Countdown – Twizzler’s Tweeterz!

CC_Twizzlers Tweeters TITLE PLATE

It’s Easter-Eve, and I wanted to squeeze in one extra post before I wrap up my Easter Week tomorrow.  I also wanted to share this fun little mid-2000′s offering called Tweeterz; candy-coated Twizzler bits made especially for the Easter holiday.

I missed these when they were first put out but I was lucky enough to acquire a pair of packages for them about a year-and-a-half ago.  From what I can tell, these were only sold from 2004-2007 before they were discontinued.  They were a short-lived offering and one I’m sorry I missed out on as candy-coated Twizzler-bits in three different flavors sound pretty interesting.

The packaging for these was great with vibrant colors, an appealing mascot and strong design throughout.   Here are the Twizzler’s Tweeterz pieces in my collection:

Hershey - Y&S Candies - Twizzlers Tweeters - 1.7oz Easter candy box - mid-2000s

Hershey – Y&S Candies – Twizzlers Tweeters – 1.7oz Easter candy box – mid-2000s

Hershey – Y&S Candies – Twizzlers Tweeters – 13.5 oz Easter candy package – mid-2000s

Though I didn’t notice them when they were first on store shelves, these have become one of my favorite Easter pieces from the 2000′s.   I hope you’ve enjoyed the look at this short-lived Easter treat.

See you next time!

    That’s a fun box. I don’t remember seeing those. The seasonal treats come and go so quickly, and some don’t make it back the next season. Grab ‘em while you can!
