Akron, NY (March 28, 2019) – Iconic bubble gum brand Big League Chew® is meeting the needs of its trade partners and consumers with the release of a new product, The Double-Size Pouch. The new product has as much gum as two regular pouches of Big League Chew and features a resealable stand-up gusseted pouch design. The Double-Size Pouch will be available in two of Big League Chew’s most popular flavors, Outta Here OriginalTM and Big Rally Blue RaspberryTM.
“The stand-up gusseted pouch has proven to be successful throughout the candy industry, which is why we wanted to introduce it to Big League Chew fans as well as our trade partners.” said Steve Greene, Sr. Vice President, Sales & Marketing at Ford Gum. “Kids always tell us that one regular pouch is not enough to get them through a game so The Double-Size Pouch makes a lot of sense for baseball players. It’s double the gum for double the fun!”
The Big League Chew Double-Size Pouch, filled with 4.24 ounces of shredded bubble gum, is designed with a resealable plastic zipper to keep bubble gum fresh and mess-free and still lets kids share the shreds – a key feature kids love about the current Big League Chew pouch. The new pouch is available now at DICK’S Sporting Goods stores and other retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $2.99.
“From a minor league bullpen to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, bubble gum has taken me to places I’d never thought I’d go and introduced me to friends I’d never thought I’d meet,” said Rob Nelson, inventor of Big League Chew. “I hope The Double-Size Pouch encourages fans to take a page out of my playbook and share their shreds with friends wherever they go. The bigger the pouch, the more bubble gum fun for everyone!”
The Big League Chew Double-Size Pouch is available in addition to the standard 2.12 oz. pouches, gum balls, and other Big League Chew products. Flavors of Big League Chew shredded bubble gum include Outta Here OriginalTM, Big Rally Blue RaspberryTM Ground Ball GrapeTM, Swingin’ Sour AppleTM, Wild Pitch WatermelonTM, and Curveball Cotton CandyTM. Big League Chew products are available in retailers across the country, including DICK’S Sporting Goods, Dollar General, Five Below, Target and more.
