Guys, it’s that time of year again. Halloween is a chance to go house to house hitting up strangers for sweet, sweet goods — unless you’re over the age of 20, and realized that you look like a weirdo, so you just buy your own candy like a normal person.
That’s what I did, and I took it upon myself to take pics for you all. Let me be your guide down the dark (well lit), twisted (straight), haunting (I was alone) Halloween candy aisle.
As always, we have our monster cereal mascots, and apparently they’re alive (even though one’s clearly a ghost).
It seems other cereals are getting in on the Halloween action too. We’ve got Froot Loops…
…and Cap’N Crunch, who is now a ghost pirate who turns your milk green
Never seen these before. They don’t look appetizing.
Classic Cadbury “Screme” Eggs!
Zombie Food, just in case zombies show up.
The old standbys: Chips Ahoy and Oreo cookies…
…plus Rice Krispie Treats and Fruit Rollups.
M&Ms with candy corn flavor? Errr…
Another classic: Reese’s Pumpkins, a personal favorite.
KitKats are in on the orange action.
Where my Peeps at?
Hey, it’s that candy that is not corn and barely candy that no kid deserves or wants! Probably recycled from Halloweens past.
Here’s the Hershey’s take on the same crap.
Even Lindor is in on the Halloween theme. Good for them.
Hey look, peanuts (the comic strip) on Crunch bars!
And, of course, variety bags.
But what if you’re insane and don’t like chocolate? How about some other treats, like popcorn…
Chester Cheetah offers the remains of his prey.
Here’s that classic Lovecraftian beast, the Pillsbury Doughboy.
Sadly, Fanta and Crush are the only sodas in the Halloween spirit.
And that concludes this delectable tour. Now go out and sink your sweet tooth into some tasty
humans candy. I said “candy.”
