July 5, 2012 - PRLog -- Character development studio OHIYA (www.ohiyafriends.com) today announced their partnership with CRUNCHTIME POPCORN (www.crunchtimepopcorn.com) for this year’s Comic-Con International: San Diego - July 12-15.  CrunchTime will be introducing a number of Ohiya themed promotions and products. Ohiya will be exhibiting at Comic-Con in booth #2229 and will offer a full range of apparel and accessories.

“CrunchTime is the perfect spot for friends to gather, serving up delicious popcorn and the creamiest ice cream,” mentioned Jason Tharp, creator of Ohiya. “The art of making friends never tasted so good!”

Come convention weekend, CrunchTime will be transformed into the “World of Ohiya,” a place where guests can make friends while feasting on Ohiya-themed goodies. The Ohiya cast of characters will take up residence on walls, ceilings and tabletops promoting friendship and fun. The “World of Ohiya” storefront will include ‘Crunchie’, the new Ohiya CrunchTime character. Crunchie is comprised of CrunchTime’s most popular food items: popcorn, hot dogs and ice cream.

“We’re so excited to be partnering with Ohiya for the convention,” said Kim Pinkney, owner of CrunchTime, “The characters have such cute and playful personalities.  They lend themselves well to a variety of our delicacies.”

Exclusive flavors based on Ohiya characters Koki and Panduh will be unveiled courtesy of CrunchTime’s flagship brand ‘Kim’s Homemade Ice Cream’. An Ohiya-themed smoothie will also be made available featuring Dough.

All weekend guests can enjoy the Ohiya Daily Deal - two gourmet beef hotdogs and a drink for $4.75.

CrunchTime Popcorn is located two short blocks from the San Diego Convention Center at
611 K Street, directly across from Petco Park’s 7th Ave. entrance.

The art for Ohiya is the culmination of sketches and ideas from Ohio-based illustrator Jason Tharp.  A self-proclaimed ‘obsessive dreamer,’ Tharp’s main qacco hope for Ohiya is to encourage others to explore the magic and mystery of life. “Ohiya encourages us to go beyond our personal boundaries and to simply say, ‘Hi,’” proclaims Tharp. “A chance encounter can suddenly turn into something meaningful, all with the help of a simple two letter word,” Learn more about Ohiya at www.ohiyafriends.com, on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ohiyafriends) and on Twitter (@ohiyafriends).

CrunchTime Popcorn is a staple at Southern California resorts and stadiums including Petco Park, Angel Stadium and Coors Amphitheater.  Since popping its first kernel in 2003, CrunchTime’s ‘Caramel Bliss’, ‘Better than Kettle Corn’, and ‘Cheddar Cheese Sensation’ gourmet style popcorn has been joined by fresh baked goods, Hebrew National Hot Dogs and Kim’s Homemade Ice Cream.  Quality delicacies, friendly service and a warm atmosphere make CrunchTime the perfect tourist destination, as highlighted by the San Diego International Airport.  CrunchTime is located across from Petco Park at 611 K Street Suite C, in San Diego and is enjoyed nationwide through www.crunchtimepopcorn.com.
