What better way to celebrate the 4th of July than with candy! After being teased a few weeks ago, FYE has launched two new Garbage Pail Kids candy bars in stores. Thanks to GPK collector Trenton McAnally for sending along pictures of these available in his local store. The Drippy Skippy Bar is a milk chocolate with peanut butter filling. While the Cotton Kandy Bar is a cotton candy flavored confection. FYE previously launched two other candy bars back in 2019. The bars retail for $3.99 in store.
FYE is at it again with the GPK consumables. Collector Nick Cornelison was first to spot a brand new GPK branded soda inside his local FYE store. Adam Bomb’s Nuclear Sunrise Orange Soda is being sold in individual bottles within the GPK section for $3.99 each. No word yet if the bottle will be sold on the FYE website.
