Grinch Bark

Are you familiar with the green funny guy who is always annoyed when people are celebrating Christmas. Who is also into stealing Christmas gifts? Yesss! It’s “The Grinch”! His heart does grow and he becomes sweet at the end.. Awww!

This Grinch inspired candy, the Grinch Bark is so awesome. Makes the kids jump around for excitement when they recognize him.

I’m thinking of pairing it with Kiwi Slushy (with a cherry on top for the Grinch effect), or the Kid-Friendly Jiggly Puff Punch (with green cotton candy instead of pink)

Hmmm. What do you think? I might ask the experts here… my kids. Lol!
