Small Wonder Woman 1984 Cool Ranch Doritos Bag

Yes, it's Women Wednesday once again. I picked up a small bag of Wonder Woman 1984 Cool Ranch Doritos at the local Walmart's this past Saturday. It features Gal Gadot as the Amazon Princess in her regular costume on the front. The normal-size bag features the same image. This is a movie tie-in and the package still has June 5 as the premiere date. In case you don't know yet, the new release date is August 14, 2020. I scanned the code for the "Become A Warrior" found on the back but didn't win.

Hershey's DC Super Hero Bar 12 Snack Size Batman and Wonder Woman Editions

Whew, what a long title for today's post but I found the Batman and Wonder Woman editions of the new Hershey's DC Super Hero Bar 12 Snack Size at the local Walmart's this morning. They were on the bottom shelf and were selling for $1.96. They didn't have any of the other packaging styles yet nor did they have any of the Superman packages.

I like that the heads and upper torsos of Batman and Wonder Woman are on the right side of the packages.

The backs of the packages shows the three different packages available.

The backs of both packages also have the best buy date, which is May, 2021. They won't last that long around here and they were already melting by the time we got home, put away the groceries and I took the pictures.

The candy bars from the Batman package are on the left while the candy bars from the Wonder Woman package are on the right. The Batman package had two with Aquaman wrappers, one with Batman wrapper, one with Flash wrapper, four with Green Lantern wrappers, three with Superman wrappers and one with Wonder Woman wrapper. The Wonder Woman package had two with Aquaman wrappers, one with Batman wrappers, two with Flash wrappers, three with Green Lantern wrappers, three with Superman wrappers and one with Wonder Woman wrapper.

The total count of the candy bar wrappers from both packages was Aquaman (4), Batman (2), Flash (3), Green Lantern (7), Superman (6) and Wonder Woman (2).

Th candy bar below was from one with an Aquamn wrapper that featured Batman logo, Wonder Woman logo, Batmobile outline and Superman logo. My sister had one with a Wonder Woman wrapper that featured logos of Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman and Green Lantern.
I'm trying to save the candy bar wrappers but they are hard to open by hand. They measure 3-3/4" by 1-1/4". I might end up getting a few more packages of each if I can just to see who I get on the wrappers. I'm really hoping to find the Superman package too.

Women Wednesday: Ruby Rose Exits Batwoman

According to CBR's Batwoman Ruby Rose Exits Series, the CW series is looking for a new leading lady for season two, which is set to air in January 2021. Kind of a shame really for I greatly enjoyed watching her as Katy Kane aka Batwoman.

Avengers Jumbo Coloring and Activity Book: Defenders of Earth

Avengers Jumbo Coloring and Activity Book: Defenders of Earth is another one that I picked up at the local Dollar Tree. It was produced by Bendon with a copyright of 2020. There are ninety-six tear and share pages. The front cover features Black Widow, Captain America and Thor.

The back cover features Iron Man, Captain Marvel and the Hulk.

The coloring pages are either full figures or upper torso and head shots. Characters include Hawkeye, War Machine, Wasp, Ant Man, Black Panther, Vision, Falcon, Loki, Red Skull, Thanos, Doctor Strange and Winter Soldier in addition to the Avengers featured on the front and back covers. Unfortunately, there are no group shots or fighting scenes. I would recommend using coloring pencils if you color them since there some small spaces.

Activity pages are mixed in with the coloring pages. They include puzzles such as how many words, find the right one, mazes, who am I, squares and tic-tac-toe.

Marvel Jumbo Coloring & Activity Book: New Allies

This Marvel Jumbo Coloring & Activity Book: New Allies was picked up at the local Dollar Tree. This was produced by Bendon in 2019 with ninety-six tear and share pages. The front and back covers feature Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor and Spider-Man. I did a search and Amazon has it listed as part of the Marvel Heroes Jumbo Coloring & Activity Book Set (the other one is titled "Unleashed", which I do not have nor did I see it at the local Dollar Tree).

The back cover features the same image as the front cover.

Most of the coloring pages features individual characters but there are some group pages like the one with Captain America, Hawkeye, Thor, Falcon, Iron Man, Hulk and Black Widow. Other Avengers such as Ant Man, Black Panther and War Machine have their own coloring pages too. Coloring pages with super villains such as Red Skull, Loki and Ultron also pop up.

The activity pages include drawing with the grid, connect the dots, maze, image search, finish the drawing, anagrams, shadow matching, word search and others.

Note: The last third of Marvel Jumbo Coloring & Activity Book: New Allies is devoted to Spider-Man and his enemies.

Thor Big Fun Book To Color: Ages of Thunder

It's Thor Thursday and I have something special to share today. I picked up a copy of Thor Big Fun Book To Color: Ages of Thunder last week at the local Dollar Tree. The coloring/activity book was produced by Bendon in 2013 and has ninety-six off white pages. The first fifty pages or so features "Ages of Thunder" story about Loki taking over the throne of Asgard while Odin is gone. Thor gets a little help from his friend, Balder, to battle the fire and storm giants. Odin returns and discovers Loki's trickery before exiling him and the giants. Thor then goes in search of the Warriors Three and ends up battling Fafnir. Skurge and the Enchantress shows up to battle Thor before releasing Loki. Of course, he wins in the end.




Games and activities in Thor Big Fun Book To Color: Ages of Thunder include find the differences, solve the codes, hidden images, connect the dots, mazes and more.
For a dollar, Thor Big Fun Book To Color: Ages of Thunder is not a bad buy. I like the fact that it separates the story pages from the activity pages. There are plenty of action scenes with a few full figure pages. I would choose colored pencils instead of crayons because of the small spaces to color.
