Iconic Australian ice cream brand Peters has joined forces with legendary rock giants KISS to make their upcoming “Monster” tour even sweeter by bringing back the famous Peters KISS “Thunderbolt” ice block.
In February, Peters will relaunch their widely popular 1980s KISS “Thunderbolt” ice block to coincide with KISS’ “Monster” tour in Australia celebrating the band’s 40th anniversary. Peters and KISS will be encouraging KISS fans to “lick it up” while stocks last and rock out at a concert in their local city.
Alicia Munday, Peters marketing manager, said: “The original KISS ice block was such a hit when it first launched that we knew we had to bring it back at some stage. When KISS announced that they were starting their global KISS ‘Monster’ tour in Australia, we knew we had to make it happen.
“We know the comeback of this ice block will conjure up a sense of nostalgia and excitement for new and old fans and expect the Peters KISS ‘Thunderbolt’ to be a sellout success.”
KISS frontman Paul Stanley is excited by the partnership and can’t wait to “lick it up” Down Under.
“Getting a chance to revisit our first time here through this awesome Aussie project gives us a taste of Kissteria and all that made us a phenomenon back then,” he said.
Gene Simmons, KISS bassist and co-founder, revealed: “I still have 12 original boxes of the ice blocks from the 1980s.”
The Peters KISS “Thunderbolt” ice block is a triple threat of three flavors that will take you straight back to childhood — lemonade, raspberry and cola.
The Peters KISS “Thunderbolt” ice block will be one of the first products to be released under Peters‘ new Australian ownership and part of a renewed commitment to creating products that Australians want.
The Peters KISS “Thunderbolt” ice block is available exclusively in Caltex outlets from Wednesday, February 6 and Coles supermarkets from Wednesday, February 13 until sold out.
