Halloween looks a lot different this year but that doesn’t mean families can’t still enjoy the spooky season. Families across the country have found that their Butterfinger bars “go missing” in the weeks leading up to Halloween and that’s why Butterfinger is launching Butterfinger Investigators (BFI) to help bring sticky-fingered chocolate lovers to justice once and for all. From Sept.14 to Nov. 6 guilty parties (aka parents) and Butterfinger fans can aid the BFI in their quest by “turning themselves in” at ButterfingerCaseFiles.com for the chance to win $25,000.

Butterfinger is introducing the Butterfinger Investigators (BFI) in a hilarious video series chronicling the antics of Butterfinger-swiping perps. The formation of the BFI introduces two soon-to-be-beloved characters: wise-cracking agents Hugh Dunnit and Ali Byes, brought to life by Amir Arison and Alexandria Benford.

“We’re thrilled to introduce the world to the BFI,” said Silvia Borla, VP of Marketing for Ferrero Chocolate Brands. “We’ve all given in to the temptation to steal a Butterfinger or two. With these new characters solving hilarious but relatable ‘crimes,’ we’re sure to entertain our fans and show why Butterfinger is so unique and irresistible to everyone.”

It’s easy to turn yourself in to the BFI. Simply sign a digital “confession” for agents Hugh Dunnit and Ali Byes as entrance into the sweepstakes. Share the confession across Facebook and Twitter channels for additional chances to win. For full contest rules, please visit ButterfingerCaseFiles.com/rules.

Fans can stay on the lookout for more campaign details and the latest on the BFI by following the brand on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.
