I noticed that there are mutplie places to get Appollo Bars in September (By clicking on the US Distribution logo), does anyone have any clue as to what is going to happen at these events?--Diseasefix 13:13, 11 August 2006 (PDT)

Ok i can't get into the site because it goes to the shut-down Hanso page ???? can u guys help me????--man of Faith

Don't know - works for me. --Jajasoon 12:55, 9 August 2006 (PDT)

Let's try to keep info about the candy bar on that page, and the company here. Otherwise it's just two duplicate pages. --Jajasoon 12:55, 9 August 2006 (PDT)

Okay.--CaptainInsano

Regarding the Ad

Has anyone else noticed that in the ad, it says "Not available in stores". THis would fit in with the theory that there is something in the candy bars that they don't want out in the public, although they say "Call to get your free Apollo Candy Bar." Weird... --Marik7772003 09:20, 10 August 2006 (PDT)

They probably give you a free one because they don't the effects it has on people--CaptainInsano
I think the not available in stores is just because its a fake commercial. Someone who doesn't watch lost could be confused if it did not say that. -brianopp 08:29, 11 August 2006 (PDT)
They'll be giving away candy bars in September in US cities... --Jajasoon 13:15, 11 August 2006 (PDT)

Logo/Imprint on the candy bar in the ad

There seems to be some sort of logo or imprint stamped on the unwrapped candy bar, but it's very unclear in the ad. It doesn't seem to be the Apollo logo from the wrapper as is usually the case with a candy bar. The Flash object lets you zoom in really close, but that only serves to make it blurrier. I don't have any sort of graphics enhancing software handy, can anyone pull that into Photoshop or something and try to enhance it? JoeZeppy 10:58, 10 August 2006 (PDT)

  • I don't think the image is clear enough to enhance, but this is a good idea. In the center bar on the website, I think the first two letters on the chocolate are "wh" followed perhaps by an "e." Let's keep an eye out for bars... --Jajasoon 11:51, 10 August 2006 (PDT)
  • Yep, I get the same impression from staring at it. Wh, followed with probably an e. I zoomed in on the lower right as far as it would go and then stood back 5 feet from the screen and squinted, but I can't get it. (right click on the image in Firefox, and the flash properties menu comes up. Not sure if that works in IE. --JoeZeppy 08:30, 11 August 2006 (PDT)
  • I agree with the 'wh' and 'e' in the bar. The bar in the lower right hand of the screen seems to have '.com' imprinted on the end of it. My guess is that it points to an in-game website. --[[User::Suburbanantihero|Suburbanantihero]] 6:50, 13 August 2006 EST
  • Some one posted a picture of the candy bad in their mouth on whereisalvar.com, and it clearly says, "whereisalvar", but it gets cut off by the mouth. Cghp91490 08:30, 24 August 2006 (PDT)

Just incase. I don't do the lost experince so I don't know if you need it.--CaptainInsano

apollocandy.com article

It strongly calls my attention the fact that there is not an article for the site itself. All other TLE sites have got their own article. I could start writing one, but I first wanted to know if there is any reason why someone has not made one yet. Thanks!--Kebirek 14:29, 12 August 2006 (PDT)

  • Go for it! I divided Candy Bar from Company, but agree that the site deserves its own site. --Jajasoon 14:34, 12 August 2006 (PDT)
  • Merge: I've put a merge template on this article. Someone has already copied large sections that I wrote from the apollocandy.com article into this article. If the content is going to simply be copied in parallel, then we should merge. If not, then please remove copied text. It's copied because the boldface, parentheses, and ordering of elements in the Giveaway Promotion section is *exactly* the same as what I wrote for the other article. Also there was no reference to the website article, so I added a link. Bottom line: clearly differentiate or merge. -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk 14:15, 18 August 2006 (PDT)
  • Keep: As the above shows, initially there was Apollo Candy Bar. Once the website went live, I created this page to document the company beyond the product. The apollocandy.com page is a week old to focus on the site itself. I agree that there is overlap here, but there's similar overlap between thehansofoundation.org and Hanso Foundation - the site exists to serve the company, so overlap is inherent. I think making more distinct content at each makes sense, but honestly the giveaway dates seems less important to the website (although it appears there) as the bar itself. As information about Apollo emerges from sources beyond the official site, this page will be more important. --Jajasoon 15:07, 18 August 2006 (PDT)
    • Re: Redundancies: If we do intend to keep, could you begin pruning relevant information from each article, so editors don't have to maintain parallel copies of the same content? For example, verbatim text from the website, including the giveaway promotion, do not belong in the company article, imho. -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk 20:36, 18 August 2006 (PDT)
Agreed, & I pruned that section. However as of now, almost all the info we have about the company comes from the website, so duplication is unavoidable. I'm sure this will change soon enough... --Jajasoon 05:38, 19 August 2006 (PDT)
  • Rewrite looks great: Good job to everybody involved! Merge no longer needed, the end result is great. -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk 15:26, 23 August 2006 (PDT)

Adult Website

It says adult website only. And you can't go to the website anymore. The thing Talk 06:47, 21 June 2007 (PDT)

Isn't it fun when licensing isn't renewed - it allows anyone to take over the domain name. So now Apollo Candy really is full of nuts (shudder) --Nickb123 (Talk) 13:11, 17 August 2007 (PDT)
