Iggy’s releases limited edition “Calamari Comeback” merchandise

WARWICK, R.I (WLNE) – The calamari comeback is officially on with the release of limited-edition merchandise, inspired by The Ocean State’s DNC rollcall that went viral.

During Tuesday night’s Democratic National Convention roll call, Rep. Joe McNamara, chairman of the Rhode Island Democratic Party, touted state’s official appetizer before nominating Joe Biden.

Representative McNamara said it was to promote the state’s fishing and tourism industry.

Inspired by the now popular clip, Iggy’s released limited-edition merchandise available from August 21 – August 25.

The calamari comeback inspired merchandise includes four t-shirts, four hoodies, a tote bag, and a mask to be fashionable during the pandemic.

Each item features Iggy’s mascot, the Doughboy holding a plate of calamari.

Items available for purchase can be bought here.
