Kazoozles at Bamboozle!

It's true! Our magical candy makers are unveiling a new treat sure to satisfy the pickiest candy craver. At Bamboozle we'll be bringing you KAZOOZLES -- Ohh it's so delickoricious! Check out Bamboozle band, Breathe Carolina giving it a first try.

A twist on an already good thing the KAZOOZLES combines TWO long and luscious licorice ropes with fruit-flavored candy filling. We'll be passing them these unique flavors at Bamboozle: Cherry Punch, smooth and tangy cherry ropes; and Pink Lemonade, sour lemon ropes dusted with sugar crystals.

Get ready boys and girls, this is a delectable snack sure to feed your imagination! If you can't grab a taste as Left, we'll also be handing them out along the Roadshow before they hit stores in June AND we'll be giving them away on our Facebook Fan Page and MySpace! Be sure to connect with us there, because like we said this is one incredible confection you don't want to be without.

Gold Card Glory – BETTER than a Golden Ticket

We mentioned recently that we’re going to be bringing “Gold Cards” on the road with us throughout the Bamboozle Roadshow presented by WONKA, and we wanted to share with you how magical these cards really are.

For the first time EVER, we at WONKA decided to open up the doors to our mystical candy closet to our loyal friends throughout the nation. The exclusive and coveted WONKA Gold Card entitles its holder to 200 individual packages of WONKA’s marvelous candy. Once word gets out about who’s holding a WONKA Gold Card, we can’t be responsible for how popular that card holder will become.

How do you get an auspicious Gold Card, you ask? Well, here’s the deal.

You can’t apply for one. You can’t even buy one. But there is good news.

A handful of coveted WONKA Gold Cards will be awarded to lucky concert goers at Bamboozle Left, throughout the Bamboozle Roadshow and once we get to New Jersey for Bamboozle, we’ll pass out a few more there.

WONKA’s secret spotters will be on the lookout for people who embody all that is WONKA. Show your inner WONKA – you never know who might be watching. So stop by the WONKA tent in LA or NJ or try to find our WONKA spotter on the road (HINT: She just might be wearing purple)!

If you’re lucky enough to get a WONKA Gold Card, you’ve got yourself some bragging rights. Share the candy with your friends if you want…or don’t.

WHOA. 10 days away from going on tour with a band. Trying to figure out what to take on the journey (as we’ll be living on a bus with Never Shout Never) is a bit of a challenge. Making the transition to from factory to life on the road – well, we know we’ll be bringing LOTS of our new candy *so excited to tell you about it SOON* for the bands and fans to snack on. Delickoricious. That’s all we’re saying right now.

Thoughts on what we should pack for month long journey? Here’s what we have so far:

*iPod (of course with music from the Bamboozle bands, any other music suggestions?)
*Our best pair of skinny jeans
*10 WONKA/Bamboozle glow-in-the-Dark t-shirts to wear at all the concerts (so you know who I am!)
*Funky fresh Ray-Ban shades
*A fedora hat (maybe in purple and gold)
*My iPhone! – that should have been #1
*WONKA Gold Cards (We’ll be giving away one at each of the stops. We’ll explain the Gold Card in detail later, but let us just say. ACCESS TO THE WONKA CANDY CLOSET.)

Pretty good start, we think. Oh man, this is going to be so awesome. WONKAnation, here we come!

Igniting the WONKAnation!

Welcome to the wonderful world of WONKA! Here we hope to provide you with the latest information on our mystical confections (we have a lot of new things in store that we’ll be sharing with you *through giveaways* soon), as well as provide you with the inside scoop on our upcoming partnership with the Bamboozle.

We’ll be sending a WONKA rep from our factory along with the Roadshow bands: NeverShoutNever, Mercy Mercedes, TheCAB, Forever The Sickest Kids and We the Kings. We’ll let you know here when to expect LIVE video interviews with the band and we’ll post pics of our trip, as well as pics of what we’re cooking up in our factory.
