Kick-starting a summer of celebration is a 1950’s retro branded Chupa Chups bus that will tour key cities and events across the country over the next four months.

‘Chupa Chicks’ will be dancing to the sounds of the 50’s and sampling lollies to members of the public, targeting an estimated 1.5 million people at concerts and festivals.An anniversary Chupa Chups logo has been created to appear on selected merchandise including collector’s tins and shoulder bags.

The collector’s tins will contain the seven original flavours made 50 years ago, including Cola, Vanilla and Strawberries and Cream. A special edition coffee table book has also been created to commemorate this iconic brand. A newly designed website has been created to support the anniversary, with information, interactive elements and a history of the brand.
