The Rolling Stones will introduce their first official candy bars next week, according to NME. The two selections, a milk chocolate bar called “Brown Sugar,” and a dark chocolate bar called “Cherry Red” — after the line in “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” will be sold exclusively at the band’s official merch website starting on January 25th.
Last year, the Rolling Stones opened their boutique store in London, called RS No.9 Carnaby Street, selling all kinds of group apparel and merchandise.
- The Rolling Stones‘ first decade will be the subject of a limited TV series for FX. The still-unnamed official series will be produced by the same team behind the hit show chronicling Britain’s royal family, The Crown.
- The series, which has been ordered for two seasons, is the first time the band has allowed their music to be used for such a production, and will be written by High Fidelity author Nick Hornby.
- The program will follow the band from its inception in 1962 through 1972’s Exile On Main Street.
