Vampires beware: Blockhead is trialling Garlic Gum this Halloween
It’s vegan, pungent and packed with health benefits. It’s the ultimate treat with a trick.
To help Brits fend off vampires and unwelcome suitors this Halloween, functional chewing gum brand BLOCKHEAD has introduced a limited run of Garlic Gum.
Tasting of peppermint, but releasing a pungent garlic stench, the chewing gum is infused with alliin which turns into allicin – a sulphur-containing molecule – on being chewed and exposed to air.
Within a matter of seconds, ordinarily breath-freshening confectionery turns into candy that’s powerful enough to ward off vampires and prank tricksy trick or treaters.
BLOCKHEAD Garlic Gum is also a surefire way to deter unwanted love interests trying their luck on All Hallows’ Eve, whether they’ve got fangs or not. It will leave them breathless.
True to BLOCKHEAD, which is known for infusing functional ingredients into fast-release gum, the Garlic Gum is packed with all the health benefits that garlic brings, containing antioxidants to protect against cell damage and vitamin C, B6 and manganese to fight off the flu.
Danny Lowe, CEO and Founder of BLOCKHEAD commented:
“At BLOCKHEAD we believe confectionary should have added benefits, so we thought it would be fun to try out garlic gum this Halloween. Aside from warding off vampires and the like, it also comes loaded with health benefits, so it’s a win, win. Before you ask, the gum is vegan, so vampires can’t bite back.”
As legend has it, garlic can help people live longer, so you’ll be beating vampires in more ways than one with this candy.
“We’ve also just launched the UK high-street’s first CBD Chewing Gum (£4.99 a pack), so those looking to keep their cool on Halloween weekend can chew on this too.”
BLOCKHEAD is trialling Garlic Gum this Halloween. To be in with the chance of trying it, visit @blockheadenergy on Instagram or email firstname.lastname@example.org between Monday 28th October and midnight on Wednesday 30th October.
