Bad timing to let the world be aware of such breaking news the same day as the new American president will be installed...

I'm sure when Gene Simmons sees this he'll be saying Why didn't I think of this?

But... no new album. Not even a new single.

This can't really be the Stones, it must be Bravado or whatever the name of the company that... bought their rights... or something like that.

Why not tea?

From the greatest rock'n'roll band in the world: the finest herbal tea in the world, The Rolling Stones' TEA AT THREE.

Featuring:

Midnight Rambler black tea
Ruby Tuesday white tea
Ronnie's Oolong tea
You Got The Silver fermented tea
Fingerprint File green tea
Have You Seen Your Mother yellow tea
Time Waits For No One purple tea

All teas made from the finest most elite collection of Camellia sinensis plants in the world grown in a rural area of Oregon as well as various regions of India.

These things have been available for months. They must really be missing tour revenue.

Then they should at least be $300 a piece. If ya eat it real slow, say, tour hours, why it's the same, or similar, to a ticket.

How pathetic. How un-necessary.

Any idea who makes these?

I'm assuming it's not one of he premier chocolatiers or it would say so and would be "the Rolling Stones partner with...", so probably one of the cheaper easter-egg chocolate-type varieties.

Well, beside the candy bars, they could also get into baking products. Rolling Stones brown sugar, anyone?

Is this any worse than all the other Stones-gimmicks out there?

I mean - christmas ornaments, cell phone cases, playing cards, poker chips....

what makes chocolate so horrible?

Can someone post a picture of the wrapping? There's an image of the 'Cherry Red' bar on google images, but I don't know how to post it. Cherry Red is a dark chocolate bar with cherry, whilst Brown Sugar is the milk chocolate offering. The former is only 60% cocoa, though.

The Rolling Stones destroyed their brand many years ago, when they started to sell the tongue as a brand on daily men's wear in stores like Dressman in Norway and other places. Mick met up with the Dressman management and key sales people at a big kick-off party in Buenos Aires, and they got millions of dollars for the deal.

When you meet an old guy, or a young girl, with a Stones shirt, and you ask them about the Stones, and they don't know what the Stones are all about, then the brand is dead.

Also, the brand was dead for me when I met people with tour shirts from places they had never been to. It's like having a "FINISHER" black shirt from a major triathlon, and you don't even know what triathlon is all about.

I think the Baseball & NFL Football Themed shirts were catering precisely to that audience.

Disclaimer: I bought a Cleveland Browns tongue shirt and COVID cancelled that show (and I didn't have tix)

In my defense, I love the Browns, I love the Stones....plus, I got it at a Browns game in Cleveland Fall 2019 from some parking-lot-un-official-t-shirt-salesperson...

so, that makes me feel better...I guess I don't feel like such a tool in that regard.

I also bought the Brisbane Litho b/c as a surfer I liked the Wave-Tongue....I've never been to Brisbane.

One really has to differentiate between song message and artist these days - otherwise I couldn't take the lyrics to Satisfaction seriously anymore.

Seems to me, a turning point was in 1989 when they added 'fashion clothing' to the swag lineup, when Mick and Charlie got involved in the designs with lyrics all over them and whatnot. It only got worse from there.

I added a Brown Sugar bar to a Carnaby order, if it ever comes.. looking forward to checking it out.
Curious as to where the chocolate is made and if they will be the same product shipping out of the US stores.
