Longtime fan and friend Nelly discusses his role in the reunion, his new album and his passion for Mike and Ike candy with me in the audio below:

In addition, the debut of the movie trailer, “The Return of Mike and Ike” is set to air on national TV next month. Here’s a sneak peek of the movie trailer. We’re excited to share that the new flavor, “Strawberry Reunion,” born out of Mike’s music video Strawberry or Die, and how all flavors now have real fruit juice.
