SeaWorld's annual Spooktacular will be sweeter than ever this Halloween with the addition of WARHEADS Sour Chewy Cubes on this year's hunt for funtabulous sea treasures. Spooktacular, held every weekend in October at SeaWorld's Orlando and San Diego parks, provides youngsters with treasure maps that guide them through the park to find candy and healthy snacks to make their Halloween holiday sea sweet! This is the first year WARHEADS has partnered with SeaWorld for Spooktacular.
Impact Confections, the maker of famous WARHEADS authentic extreme sour candy, will provide 700,000 free samples of Sour Chewy Cubes to more than 200,000 children and family members for the month-long event. Other suppliers of Spooktacular treats include Pretzel Crisps, Baskin Robbins candy, Chiquita minis, the National Peanut Board, Crayola and more. "This promotion marries one of the top national sour confections brands for kids in a marketing effort with one of their favorite theme park destinations," said Jeff Rome, CEO of Impact Confections. "With the momentum behind the launch of our new Warheads Sour Chewy Cubes, this timing is perfect."
"We think kids will love exploring the park and finding their favorite extreme sour candy at the WARHEADS destination during Spooktacular," said Rome. "Partnering with SeaWorld, as we did earlier this year with ESPN Summer and Winter X Games, has been a great way to reach out to families who enjoy our innovative and delicious candy treats."
