Hershey’s New Monster-Themed Candy Is Genius – And It’s Already Hitting Stores
It’s never too early for Spooky Season.
October might be months away — but as any true Halloween fan will tell you, it’s never too early to get in the spirit (or to dig into a pile of candy). Fortunately for us, Hershey’s Halloween chocolates are already starting to appear on shelves.
This year will feature four new delicious treats that brilliantly channel familiar Halloween monsters. In holidays past, the candy giant has played with shapes (like Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins) and packaging (glow-in-the-dark wrappers and eye ball-studded foil). But this year, Hershey’s is taking monster mash vibes a step further by having the candies themselves resemble our favorite ghouls.
Vampires will take form in Hershey’s Vampire Milk Chocolate Kisses, a scary sweet combination of milk chocolate and appropriately blood red strawberry creme. One bite and the to-die-for filling bursts in your mouth.
And whether you have a reflection or not, it will be hard to resist Hershey’s Cookies ‘N’ Creme Fangs. These snack-size chocolates feature a vampire fang design that make them ready-made for a fun selfie – and are sure to be popular with kids. Just bite off the bar’s excess and you’ll have fangs in no time.
KIT KAT fiends will be pleased to find that another addition — Witch’s Brew — is being added to the mix. The ghostly green creme may look spooky, but it’s actually a cauldron-friendly marshmallow flavor. (And don’t worry. The limited-edition KIT KAT Pumpkin Pie Miniatures are also back by popular demand.)
Of course, what would Halloween be without a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup? This season, Reese’s has transformed their classic — and the holiday’s most popular candy — into the Franken-Cup. It has the same taste as the Reese’s we grew up with, but with an eerie green creme chocolate shell.
Between these new treats and Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins (who else loves that unmistakable peanut butter ratio?) it’s going to be hard to pick a clear favorite before Halloween rolls around.
