Attending the celebrity gifting suite were over 70 actors from movies and television shows such as Suite Life on Deck, Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, iCarly, Sonny with A Chance, and many others. See our Facebook fan page at to see more photos of celebrities enjoying Dum Dum Pops.

Spangler Candy attended the event to promote Dum Dums, especially with the teen and tween (8-12 year old) demographic. Dum Dums, including our newest flavors Mango and Tangerine, and Dum Dum branded t-shirts, plush dolls, magnets, and keychains were handed out to the celebrities as they visited the gifting suite area. The gifting suite was held outdoors in a private tent area at the landmark Sportmen's Lodge & Resort in Studio City, California.

Most companies attending were cosmetics, jewelry, handbags, apparel, or other unique items. "The response to Dum Dums was wonderful," noted Jim Knight, VP-Marketing for Spangler, "the teen celebrities had an obvious fondness for the Dum Dum brand."

Dum Dum Pops have always been popular with younger children and toddlers, and adults too. With new fun promotions, new flavors, social media sites such as Facebook & the new Flick-A-Pop iPhone application, the Dum Dum brand's popularity continues to grow and expand even more to the older tween and teen set.

Dum Dum Pops are available at most local retailers (other Spangler products available at limited retailers). If you are unable to find any Spangler product at a retailer near you, you can order from our website at
