A Bulk Barn tragedy

One of my favourite treats in the history of the world is available at the Bulk Barn. Sour Ju Jubes are amazing! I was out the other day with my daughter to get some treats, and they were out! What?!?! Nooooo!

UPDATE: Literally more than a year later (April 2023), they are finally back in stock. Within the last couple of weeks I’ve started to see them again at a couple of different Bulk Barn locations. Phew!


Licensed “energy drinks” at Bulk Barn

Every Friday night we get “Friday Night Treats”. The kids look forward to it every week. We usually end up going to the Bulk Barn. The other day we were there, and I noticed the following drinks in the cooler:


In case you can’t tell, there is Flaming Moe’s (from the Simpsons), Power Up (with Super Mario), and Romulan Ale (from Star Trek). My first thought was, “Wow, how can those be legit?” I looked on the cans, and they all have copyright or trademark information on them




I checked out the Boston America web site, and they have lots of different energy drinks that have licensed characters on the can. I guess they are legit. The only thing that kind of bothers me is that some of the cans would appeal to kids.
