While children will invariably be drawn to Little Organic Crunchies' colorful and creative packag- ing featuring their favorite Looney Tunes characters, parents will appreciate the new line's powerhouse nutrients, 100 percent organic fruit, and convenient re- sealable 1-ounce packages—perfect for lunch boxes, family outings and after- noon snacks.

Gluten-free, Kosher, vegan and non-GMO, Crunchies' prod- ucts provide an incomparable blend of taste and nutrition. Commenting on the partnership Crunchies (Cont'd. from p. 1) with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Crunchies' President and CEO Jim Lacey said, "We are thrilled to join with such beloved and timeless Looney Tunes characters to help young people discover the fun and appeal of healthier eating. Given the widespread popularity of Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes family, we feel confident Little Organic Crunchies will quickly become one of the most successful product launches in Crunchies' history." "Whether it's the classic Looney Tunes shorts that moms and dads know and love or today's popular The Looney Tunes Show on Cartoon Network, which is introducing a new generation to the antics of Bugs Bunny and his gang, we know these characters are relevant to the entire family. We are proud to be partnering with Crunchies to bring the ingredient of fun to these healthier snacks," said Karen McTier, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Domestic Licensing, Warner Bros.
