Atlanta, GA – Aunty Acid, the loveable character created to give ‘the crazy old lady in all of us’ a voice that can be heard from ten blocks away, has officially surpassed 2 million Likes on Facebook and her fanatical fan base is growing fast!
With her long suffering husband Walt, Aunty Acid tells it like it is and has her own unique opinions on everything, which she shares through her daily Facebook postings and across all other social media platforms. Aunty Acid was launched solely on a social media platform in April 2012 and has steadily grown in awareness with a loyal fan base around the globe. Through social media, Aunty Acid reaches more than 26 million people each week.
Due to her overwhelming popularity and wide appeal, Aunty Acid has launched a worldwide licensing program including greeting cards, mugs, gifts, stationery, calendars and books. As the #1 selling humor calendar at Barnes & Noble and a top seller of gifts on Amazon.com, Aunty Acid is going strong at retail. The greeting cards and gifts launched at the Atlanta Gift Show last week and were prominently featured in licensee, Leanin’ Tree’s showroom.
“Aunty Acid is the fresh voice of an older generation that appeals to a wide demographic,” said Julie Newman, President Jewel Branding & Licensing, Aunty Acid’s licensing agent. “She says the things that most of us wouldn’t dare say but are thinking, which would explain why it resonates with so many people. We’re looking forward to further growing the licensing program into a wide range of products.”
