Celebrate Butterfinger’s 90ish Years of Awesome-ness! (GIVEAWAY)

Do you love Butterfinger candy bars? Then you’ll definitely want to help Butterfinger celebrate its 90ish anniversary*! Yes, it’s been more than 90 years since Butterfinger made its debut, and they’re celebrating with a 90-day countdown. On their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Butterfinger, you can share your favorite Butterfinger memories and check out some of Butterfinger’s best moments in history, including popular ad campaigns, little-known trivia, vintage bar photos, spokesperson spotlights, and more! For instance, I saw this little gem on their page today:

Proven Fact*: werewolves seek Butterfinger on full moons. (*this is not a proven fact)


I’m sure you’ve heard of the term “butterfinger,” which describes people with “slippery hands” who drop things. The term has been in use since the 1920s when sportscasters began to use the term to describe athletes who couldn’t hang on to a football or baseball. To celebrate this silly type of humor, Butterfinger has hired a roster of silly spokespersons over the years, from Bart Simpson to Seth Green and Jamie Pressly. Other humorous Butterfinger campaigns have involved a countdown to the end of the world -- described as BARmageddon, a comedy-horror movie called “Butterfinger the 13th,” and even several April Fool’s Day pranks, such as renaming the candy bar as “The Finger”!

It’s not hard to believe that Butterfinger has been going strong for more than 90 years. It’s chocolate-y, peanut-buttery, crunchy, and delicious! And, as you’ve just read above, Butterfinger folks don’t take themselves too seriously! Head over to www.facebook.com/Butterfinger today to celebrate their 90ish years of awesome-ness. And when you’re done laughing over there, come back here to enter an equally awesome giveaway for a whole box of Butterfinger candy bars!

GIVEAWAY

One lucky winner will receive a box of 33 Butterfinger regular-size candy bars! To enter, simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and will end at 11:59 PM EST on Monday, March 11, 2013.

*Butterfinger has designated 2013 as the anniversary benchmark for its first 90ish years. The beloved candy bar, originally invented by Chicago’s Curtiss Candy Company, is believed to have been promoted as early as 1923. However, parent company Nestlé (who has owned Butterfinger since 1990) holds a trademark document that is dated 1928, thus the 90ish reference around the Butterfinger anniversary, keeping in line with the brand’s irreverent sense of humor.
