The Ayurvedic herbal tea pops will be delivered in gift bags the morning after the Oscars® telecast to the nominees in five major categories, including those of best actor, best supporting actor, best actress, best supporting actress and best director, along with one for the telecast host. The 86th Academy Awards Ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, will air live on ABC on March 2, starting at 7pm E.T./4pm P.T., at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

Since 1905, the advent of the Nickelodeon Theaters, candy has been associated with the film industry. Eating candy while watching the silver screen is a cultural habit, and the inclusion of Dosha Pops candy in the nominee gift bags is a wonderful way of thanking those amazing artists who have given the public countless hours of entertainment. 

Dosha Pops Founder & CEO Peggy Andrews said, to her surprise and delight, she got the invitation the same day her company's website launched a month-and-a-half ago. The fledgling NYC-based Ayurvedic candy company will be creating a special-edition sampler of the following six signature flavors to be included in the gift bags:

The herbal tea lollipops have served as a friendly way to introduce Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, to the Western world. Dosha Pops help people become more aware of their environment, body, mind, and spirit. Complementing the lollipops is an online quiz that helps consumers discover what their dosha is, and suggests which herbal tea spice blended lollipops may help support balance in their lives.

"I'm so honored to have Dosha Pops be a part of the Oscar® nominee gift bags, as my way of giving the gift of Ayruveda with a bit of sweetness," says Andrews. "I never dreamt that my small artisanal candy company would be part of such a magical night!"
