Here's some exciting news to brighten up your week: Due to popular demand, Starburst is releasing Starburst All Pink packages filled with pink Starbursts — and only pink Starburst — starting in April. Yep, that's right: Soon, you'll be able to get an entire package filled with strawberry goodness — which means no more fighting with your roommate or little brother for the best of the best. Now, there's more than enough to share.
Here's the catch, though: These all-pink fruit chew packs are only available for a limited time, and you can only get them at certain stores in the United States. Stores include Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Kroger, Target, Meijer, and H-E-B. Luckily, the all-pink packs will also be available on Amazon, so if you aren't based in the United States, you might try finding them online (as long as international shipping is available). There isn't an exact timeline for how long the Starburst packages will be available, or what date in April they're being released, so I suggest keep your eyes peeled during your grocery shopping trips next month.
When I think about all of my favorite pink things in the world, I think about pink lemonade, my dad's rose garden, Too Faced makeup, Frenchie's hairdo from Grease, and pink Starbursts. That's why, when I found out about the Starburst All Pink packages, I nearly fell from getting pink in the knees (ha!). These fruity chews are basically the culmination of everything good and wonderful about my childhood, and I'm completely stoked to have it all in one single bag.
Or, well, bags. Technically, there are a few different package sizes that you can get featuring the pinktastic Starbursts. There's a 14-ounce pack with enough fruit chews for two people to share (seen up top); then there's a whopping 41-ounce bag that you can get with a lot more pink Starburst. Bonus: That bag is resealable!
And then there's a smaller sized pack that's just two ounces, which is perfect for those who don't want to get a major sugar high (because, let's face it, too much of a good thing isn't always, well, good).
Here's what that all-pink pack looks like:
You'll know exactly how to identify the correct bags because the packaging will be a bubblegum pink color, exactly like the candy inside, and the words ALL PINK LIMITED EDITION will be printed on the front. And, just in case you really want to make sure, the package will also list the flavor of the pink fruit chews: strawberry. Cue every heart emoji known to humankind.
This isn't the first time that Starburst has launched bags full of fruit chews in specific flavors. Around the same time last year, the candy company came out with FaveREDS bags filled with pink and red Starburst, along with bags of jelly beans and mini Starbursts also in just pink and red. The FaveREDS bags cost somewhere around $2 and $4 for a 14-ounce bag, depending on where you buy them, so I wouldn't be surprised if the All Pink packages were priced similarly.
Are you as equally stoked as I am about this? It's hard to believe we still have to wait a month before getting our hands on Starburst All Pink packages, but hopefully April will be here before we know it. After all, the best things in life are pink.
