Lip Smackers — and your childhood — may be dead.

Posted on

Markwins International has acquired Bonne Bell and Lip Smacker. It is not yet clear what will be done with the brand.

This weekend, Markwins International announced that it will acquire Bonne Bell and Lip Smackers.

WKYC reported that Bonne Bell's distribution facility in Westlake, Ohio will be closing. However, Bonne Bell's distribution affiliate, Aspire Brands, will continue to distribute Lip Smackers in Europe, Asia, and Australia.
