Trolli Celebrates National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day By Letting You “Adopt” A Gummi Worm

Share This Post

Today, Trolli announced that in order to celebrate Sour Duo Crawlers being available nationwide by National Pet Day, Trolli is embracing their fans’ love for unexpected pets – lizards, ducks, bunnies, goats and…of course, sour gummi worms.

Trolli® Takes Over National Pet Day with an Unexpected Invitation to “Adopt” a Sour Duo Crawler ™

Trolli invites fans to push the boundaries of a traditional human/pet duo by applying to “adopt” a Sour Duo Crawler. From now until National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day (April 30), Crawler-lovers can take just three easy steps to get their new bestie:

  • Step 1: Visit to submit your “application” – no purchase necessary – and keep an eye on your email this month to find out if it has been “approved.”
  • Step 2: If approved*, you’ll receive a super official certificate of adoption and a personalized shipment of Trolli Sour Duo Crawlers in the mail.
  • Step 3: You can pick out your new other half, name it and love it. Snuggle the soft side, take the gummi side for a crawl or soak up the thrill that is finding your new DUO in a pack of Crawlers.

And that’s not all. Trolli is helping support the real adoption of unexpected shelter pets across the country through a new grant they created with the nonprofit group, The Petfinder Foundation: the Trolli Dynamic Duo Grant.**

“Our partnership with Trolli is an exciting opportunity to help unexpected shelter pets find forever homes,” said Toni Morgan, Executive Director of The Petfinder Foundation. “While dogs and cats make for wonderful companions, there are plenty of other animals that fly, waddle or swim looking to be adopted, which most people don’t realize. Designing the Trolli Dynamic Duo Grant to bring awareness to less conventional adoptable pets and help offset costs of adopting hundreds of them will make a notable difference.”

While both the Adopt A Sour Duo Crawler and Trolli Dynamic Duo Grant programs end on April 30, Trolli’s new Sour Duo Crawlers are now available at retailers nationwide year-round. With one soft, airy side and one chewy, gummi side, these dual textured sour gummi worms deliver an awesome multisensory experience. Each pack features three delicious sour tropical flavor combinations: Mango Pineapple, Citrus Watermelon and Strawberry Guava.

“We’re always looking to push the boundaries of what is expected from a gummy brand, and we’re thrilled to celebrate our new Sour Duo Crawlers by shining our neon light on unexpected duos,” said Dave Foldes, Director of Marketing for Trolli. “Our fans obsess over unique human/pet duos from ducks to #petrocks on social, so we hope they enjoy ‘adopting’ our Crawlers and feel proud of the real impact Trolli is making by helping often overlooked animals find homes.”

FM+: ‘The Shape Of Water’ Isn’t Science Fiction, It’s Magical Realism Part One

As our definition of the “uncanny” and “fantastic” have changed,  it’s important, I think, to consider the changes that the world has gone through in the time that the genre has matured, and the new mediums that have sprung up and reacted to the old colonial order. The magical realist mode is not merely post-modern anymore, but is itself beginning to draw on post-modern art for its sources of colonial critique. Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water, I believe, is a perfect representative of an evolved magical realism, one that takes into account new signs and symbols created by post-war pop culture, but that doesn’t stray from the essential critique of colonialism and chauvinism inherent to the genre.
