May 8, 2008, Indianapolis, IN – Candy Dynamics, a cutting edge marketer of popular sour candy products, announced today the launch of its exciting and environmentally conscious new Toxic Waste® website game, Professor Sauernoggin and the Landfill of Doom. The announcement was made by Karen Windle-Burcham, president of Candy Dynamics.
Professor Sauernoggin and the Landfill of Doom takes kids on a Sourific journey as they help Professor Sauernoggin recover the secret formula for Toxic Waste candy, which has been stolen by the sinister Dr. Smogg. With help from Hazmat the Lab Rat (Professor Sauernoggin’s faithful pet rat), players will guide the professor in his attempt to defeat Dr. Smogg and his evil cohorts, and keep the formula safe. Along the way, players will dodge Gloop creatures, pools of waste, open fires, and hanging electrical cables, while at the same time collect garbage and litter to accumulate points. Between levels, text conveying important environmental messages will be displayed. Players skillful enough to complete the game will receive discounts for online purchases.
The Toxic Waste website, www.toxicwastecandy.com, is an imaginative work using the company’s innovative characters to entertain, while gently promoting environmental responsibility. This outrageously amusing kid-friendly site is jammed to the rim with eye-catching animation, fan videos, games, free pop music and wallpaper downloads, the latest Toxic Waste news, and the animated life story of Mr. Toxie Head, including his secret identity and his thrilling discovery of Toxic Waste candy. In addition, the site also provides words of environmental wisdom, in a way kids will relate to and is currently home to the company’s second annual Toxic Takedown Challenge™ which promotes kids of all ages to be environmentally conscious.
Through May 31st, kids (six years old and up) are invited to visit www.toxicwastecandy.com to participate in the Toxic Takedown Challenge by entering a drawing for a chance to win Toxic Waste candy and a $500 United States EE Series Savings Bond. Entering is easy and fun! Participants are asked to fill out an entry form and submit a tip or creative idea about what people can do to help the planet and the environment. One lucky grand prize winner will be awarded a week’s supply of Toxic Waste candy and the Savings Bond, plus 25 runner ups will win Toxic Waste Candy. Winners will be announced on June 6th, and their entries will be posted on the Toxic Waste website.
