Mike & Ike call it quits?

It’s not often we write about candy, actually, this may be the first time. But sometimes candy is worth talking about, especially when there is some tongue and cheek controversy involved. The other day I was at the beach and a pal offered me a box of Mike and Ike. Like most, I grew up with these chewy fruit-flavoured candies and I was excited to indulge in a favourite past-time snack. They tasted just as delicious as I remembered, but something was different – Ike’s name was scratched out on the box. Have Mike and Ike split? What is going on?
