Skip to comments.Mike and Ike Are Getting a Gay Divorce [Now Candy Makers are Perverting Their Product?]

In the realm of celebrity divorce news, this one is a true shocker. Mike and Ike--yes, the dudes of capsule-shaped candy fame--are headed for Splitsville. I know, right?They seemed so happy. Or, at least, chewy. Who will get strawberry and who will get lime?
The break-up is a marketing campaign to get young people to start talking about the once-popular candy again. Apparently, the couple is headed in two different directions--Mike wants work on his music and Ike rather work on his art. New packaging has logos with either "Mike" or "Ike" scribbled out with what looks like a black marker.

Poor Baby Ruth.
(in before the fudge packing jokes)
The only people who buy Mike and Ikes are old farts like me. This makes me much, much less likely to buy them in the future.
So they are pissing off their existing customers in order to chase new ones. What makes them think that todays modern youngster is going to like Mike and Ikes?
When I was a kid it was Quisp or Quake.
Nothing new under the sun.
Never heard of them and I guess that’s because I live overseas and have no wish to go back there...
not to mention it’s risky to be promoting Lemonheads in an election year...
Seriously, though...I never could understand why they're called 'gay'
They're some of the most miserable people on the planet.
I never quite got that idiot advertising then either...LOL
And all this time I though Mike and Ike were two brothers who started the candy company... Who knew? /sarc
:-). They always struck me as one of those candies you saw in the back of the movie concession stand with the Hot Tamales which were never sold and had to be dusted off occasionally. Maybe they starred in some old anecdote thtat started "I remember when Ike and Mikes were a nickel and the box was twice as big as now. Back then you could get two penny candies for a cent."
Quisp and Quake were gay? Who knew? I thought they were just kinda flaky.
I hear that there are a lot of Snickers about this.....
For one of them... divorce will be a Payday..
Ike had a Twix with another man...
Ike was into S&M....Mike M&M’s
Mike was getting a little Chunky
Ike wouldn’t Butterfinger...
I’m not touching Milkyway.....
Next thing you know, Bert and Ernie will be splitting up.
I’m fed up with faggots, queers and homos invading every part of our culture. Now they have to put a slant on movie candy.
As my daughter says, every time I get started... “I remember when you could see a movie for ten cents, and still have enough money for the streetcar ride home!”
I like Ike, but I never much cared for Mike.
He won the war for you didn’t he?
Never had them.
Now I never will.
Melts in your mouth, not in your hand..................
