Yes you read this absolutely correct. I am in Minnesota USA and I got hit hard by a Tropical Typhonn. And I enjoyed it completely. Let me explain. I love Mike and Ike candies. They now have a new flavor variety. Called, TROPICAL TYPHOON. Therefore as I ate this box I got hit by the Typhoon. The flavors in this new variety are, Carribean Punch, Paradise Punch, Strawberry Kiwi, Kiwi Banana, and lastly mango. They are so good. have you tried Mike and Ikes at all? Have you tried the new Tropical Typhoon at all? How about the Hot Tamales by Mike and Ike? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I swear, you and your sweet tooth..lol. They sound good, but I don't eat candy too much. I have tried Mike and Ikes before and I've also tried the hot tamales, those are good. I'll let my nephew know about the Tropical ones, he'll try them, he can't stay away from candy either, he thinks he's gonna die if he don't get his daily dose of sugar..lol.

haha.. i see what u mean. Well, for a second I thought the typhoon that was sweeping through Hong Kong 2 days ago had also affected you. All those miles away! The typhoon that hit hong kong was an especially strong one. measuring 8 on the typhoon scale, and the scale only ranges from 1 to 8 so you can imagine what that meant! thankfully there were early warnings and thus not many people were adversely affected. people just stayed indoors. lots of flights were cancelled or delayed though. think the airlines must have been real busy after that trying to make up for lost time. my friend working in hong kong also didn't have to go to work. those with remote access could just work from home.

I thought you were talking about the weather!! I have never heard of Mike and Ike candies so I really can not tell you if I like them or not. I just think that it is unfair that you all seem to get so much better sweets than we do in UK. I think that our sweets are so boring. I remember being 15 and visiting florida, and I think I was in heaven with the choice of sweeties there were!

I have had the Mike and Ike hot Tamales and that is about it. I will have to try the tropical ones sometime. I am not much of a candy eater anymore for some reason or the other.

Ike and Mike are like now a laters they come in different flavors. Some of the flavors that Mike and Ike have they don't have in any other candy except the jelli bellies.

Would you believe that I have never had Mike and Ike candies of any kind. I have seen them many times, but never tried them. I just may buy a box tomorrow when I go shopping.

I have not tried Mike and Ike candies. *I wonder if they are available in Canada or whether they can be shipped?" I guess not. I will have to look on the web site to see if they are available in Walmart up here. I really should not eat that many candies, but these are delicious and I think I am going to like the Hot Tamales.

I used to love Mike and Ike candy! Unfortunately, with all my bridgework and fillings, I try to avoid chewy candy. Too bad, because those sound like wonderful flavors!! Maybe if I ate them very carefully....

I have not seen the tropical typhoon flavors but they sound good. I have not had any Mike and Ike's in awhile and yes, I used to love the Hot Tamales,they were so good. I might need to try some of those hot tamales again.
