Seibertron.com member Cujo has found out what product the elusive "Optimus Lime" is meant for. According to his images that he submitted, it is a new flavor of Starburst candy!

According to Cujo, the candies flavor is somewhat reminiscent of flat Mountain Dew mixed with flat Sprite. So if you enjoy soda that's been left out for days, this is the candy for you!

...

They could have at least put a green Optimus head for the flavor on the package... Or did they not sign up to shill for the movie, and are now trying to cash in on a trademark loophole of some sort?

Starburst, as my sister would say, you FAIL at bandwagons.

Putting the pictures in the News Story might be a good idea.
Nevermind, they are up now. Sorry for the trouble, and thanks for the pictures!

They used to have lime Starburst when they were called Opal Fruit.

I was thinking 'trailer' instead of 'flames.' :P
Is this a limited/special flavour, or just a renaming of a regular one? Alone, the joke is pointless, but if they had a bag of different TF-named candies, it would make a lot more sense.

The contest is about cell phones. Maybe the flavor is named after the Optimus electronics brand? (I have an Optimus VCR).

I will control myself and restrain myself from saying half what is running through my mind right now. All I will say is: I am not surprised. That and they at least could have given the (insert favorite profanity here) bubblegum the shape of Optimus! >_<

I belive they actually had a lime flavor in starbursts a very long time ago.

Not that I am showing my age or anything...
