The relationship between Wonderful Pistachios and Rovio’s Angry Birds entered a new level with the launch of The Hunt for the Golden Pistachio, the first fully branded Angry Birds game. The game, which rolled out on, requires a Chrome browser and functions like the standard Angry Birds games except that birds are used to crack open pistachios as well as destroy pigs. Golden Pistachio is the first game conceived from inception with the advertiser in mind. Users will also get the chance to win a total of $300,000 in prizes, which range from free pistachios and Angry Birds plush toys to $25,000 cash. Those prizes will be offered through December 31.
