Your cupcakes are about to get a lot more magical!
Remember Care Bears, everybody's favorite wholesome '80s crew of brightly colored, huggable friends? Well, the cuddly movie stars are back and going strong. For the 35th anniversary of the greeting card characters-turned TV stars, the Care Bears are partnering with Sprinkles, AKA the best cupcake chain ever, for some exclusive and, we are sure, delicious Tenderheart Bear and friends-themed treats, the brand announced on Jan. 5, 2017.
"We are thrilled to kick off the Care Bears 35th Anniversary celebration with Sprinkles and know fans of both brands are in for something truly sweet," Sean Gorman, president of American Greetings Entertainment, the intellectual property and outbound licensing division of American Greetings, told Cooking Panda. "We look forward to celebrating our 35 years of caring, sharing and hugs with Sprinkles and other great partners in 2017."
The limited edition sweet treats will be available between Jan. 5 and Jan. 25 at all Sprinkles bakeries around the nation. Get them while they last!
"Our freshly baked, handcrafted cupcakes bring our customers cheer and delight, and we think the loveable, huggable Care Bears evoke those same feelings," said Sprinkles Marketing VP Nicole Schwartz. "We are thrilled to be partnering with Care Bears!"
