What’s happening now? This time it is all about advertising snacks, sweet drinks, and candy to young children through apps. Here are some sample games: Super-Pretzel Factory, Icee Maker, and Cookie Dough Bites.
And here are what many children are asking their parents to buy:
- Icee drinks
- Cookie Dough Bites
One company wanted to create an app called “Dum Dums Lick-a-Pop.” It was supposed to let players ingest a virtual Dum Dum lollipop by licking their smartphone before a clock ran out. Luckily Apple rejected the app.
How big is this problem? Very big!
