A Sweet Way To Support Animal Adoptions

From the Tamagotchi to the worm on a string, there’s lots of love for the unexpected man’s best friend. But now, there’s a new face in town: loveable, colorful, and sour.

It’s Trolli’s Sour Duo Crawlers!

From now until April 30th, National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, Trolli is sharing love with pets of all shapes and sizes — and wants to give back to you, dear reader. Trolli is inviting you to adopt your very own Sour Duo Crawler for yourself!

All it takes is three simple steps and you’ll have your own personalized Crawler to name, love, and cherish as your own.

  • Step 1: Visit to submit your “application” – no purchase necessary – and keep an eye on your email this month to find out if it has been “approved.”
  • Step 2: If approved*, you’ll receive a super official certificate of adoption and a personalized shipment of Trolli Sour Duo Crawlers in the mail.
  • Step 3: You can pick out your new other half, name it and love it. Snuggle the soft side, take the gummi side for a crawl or soak up the thrill that is finding your new DUO in a pack of Crawlers.

Now, this isn’t just for fun, it’s also for a very good cause. Trolli is teaming up with The Petfinder Foundation to support the adoption of real pets through their new grant, the Trolli Dynamic Duo Grant.**.

This grant supports adopting unexpected pets — birds, rabbits, reptiles, and the like — by providing funding to The Petfinder Foundation to reduce adoption fees. With their generosity, pet lovers across the country can turn animals looking for homes into ones with wagging tails and smiles.

“Our partnership with Trolli is an exciting opportunity to help unexpected shelter pets find forever homes,” said Toni Morgan, Executive Director of The Petfinder Foundation. “While dogs and cats make for wonderful companions, there are plenty of other animals that fly, waddle, or swim looking to be adopted, which most people don’t realize. Designing the Trolli Dynamic Duo Grant to bring awareness to less conventional adoptable pets and help offset costs of adopting hundreds of them will make a notable difference.”

Although both the Adopt A Sour Duo Crawler and Trolli Dynamic Duo Grant programs end April 30th, you’ll be able to find Sour Duo Crawlers at stores near you all year-round. These duos combine a soft airy side and a chewy side to bring a texture combination like you and your furry (or feathery, or scaly) companion. Each pack contains three delicious sour tropical flavor combinations: Mango Pineapple, Citrus Watermelon and Strawberry Guava.

Dave Folds, Director of Marketing for Trolli, said, “Our fans obsess over unique human/pet duos from ducks to #petrocks on social, so we hope they enjoy ‘adopting’ our Crawlers and feel proud of the real impact Trolli is making by helping often overlooked animals find homes.

”Adopting your own Crawler is simple, fun, and for a cause that will better the lives of so many pets. And if I haven’t convinced you already, here is a very-real photo of my own cat adopting his Crawler!
