Awful Awful Big Blue Bug

Monday, June 29th, 2009


Newport Creamery has teamed up with New England Pest Control for a unique summer promotion.  Beginning June 29th, and continuing for 4 weeks, the Big Blue Bug® will be enjoying an eight foot tall Awful Awful®. “What says summer more than an Awful Awful®?  So, we figured it was about time for The Big Blue Bug® to get a special treat,” explains The Jan Companies Chief Operating Officer, Bill Janikies.

The promotion will move indoors, with a brand new edition of Goldie’s Awful Awful® Fun Book, available for child guests to Newport Creamery and a limited time only, Big Blue Bug® Awful Awful® drink. 

“We’re very excited about this promotion.  This is an opportunity for two Rhode Island icons, the Big Blue Bug® and the Awful Awful®, to connect for something fun.  It’s just a little something for people to smile about while merging onto Route 95 south from the I-Way,” jokes Janikies.
