Sega Genesis Greatest Heavyweights Complete With Fruit Roll Up

Yes, you heard that correct – Fruit Rollup. Seems this must have been a promotion at the time, as the wrapper states “Free Sample With this Video Game”.

I guess the logic was:

Mom: What game do you want?
Kid: THIS ONE HAS A FREE FRUIT ROLLUP!!!!111

It appears this promo was also done with several other games as well, including at least Gunstar Heroes, Landstalkers and Young Indiana Jones. One thing I can’t confirm though, is if this was a limited offer, or if they were included in every copy of these games.

  1. I remember when I got Toejam & Earl 2 it had one of these fruit rollups in it also. And no indication of that anywhere on the box. It was just a random thing.

  2. >”Kid: THIS ONE HAS A FREE FRUIT ROLLUP!!!!111″

    Did the kid actually say “This one has a free fruit rollup one one one” πŸ˜‰

  3. Yeah this was a promotional sort of game. Fruit Rollups…lol. I’m missing my instruction manual for it though. I know it’s in my room somewhere, I have about 300 instruction manuals NES/Genny/SNES etc to go through to find it.

  4. By the way, what makes it “Promotional” of sorts is the fact they had a fruit rollup inside it >.>; I’d call that a promotional stunt anyday.

  5. Awesome to find a thread on this! I have my TJ&E2 with fruit roll up still that I bought from Kay Bee in the 16 bit days. I think the plastic on the outside had a sticker that did say it came with a fruit roll up. The links to pictures in this thread aren’t working πŸ™
