MIKE and IKE Bring Back Retro with Cherri Bubb and Lem Mel

I’ve often found myself debating which is the better decade, the 80s or the 90s? I’m firm, in my opinion, but thanks to Mike and Ike, there’s a little bit of fun from both decades. Cherri and Bubb candies first debuted in 1989, followed by Lem and Mel in 1991. Now, until April, BOTH retro flavors are back!

Mike and Ike Cherri Bubb and LEM MEL

Some things are just too delicious to escape our taste buds, and MIKE AND IKE remind us how great being a kid tastes!

CHERRI and BUBB blend Cherry and Bubblegum flavors while LEM and MEL combine Lemon and Watermelon. Both have made my kiddos deem themselves, official candy lovers! They love trying to guess the distinct flavor. Everyone has a favorite flavor–The Divine Miss M claims watermelon all hers, while Li’l Man is puckered up for lemon! We all love the bubblegum flavor.


Both flavors are available in a 5 oz—box with a suggested retail price between $1.00 and $1.39.

Look for CHERRI AND BUBB® and LEM AND MEL® candies in candy stores online. You’ll want to stock up because they’re only available through April. Ike found his passion as an urban artist and lover of art.

And remember last year with MIKE and IKE stunned us all with their split? Each decides to follow their true passion. A musician at heart, MIKE produced a music video that generated high-volume viewing. It’s hard to know what comes next for MIKE AND IKE, so keep up to date on their split and more by connecting with them through Facebook.
