Halloween is coming up in just over a week. Some say the holiday is about costumes, but who are we kidding? It is about candy. You want the good candy, so that your house goes unscathed through the beggar’s night festivities. Throw out your candy corn; there are ten new candies sure to stimulate your taste buds and please the little monsters that show up at your door. For those of you that find a candy you really like, we will have a follow up article around January; top 10 exercises to work off that Halloween candy.
Who doesn’t love Twizzlers? And who doesn’t like a nice caramel apple? Why not get the best of both worlds with apple flavored twists with caramel filling. Sure to cure that caramel apple craving without actually eating any pesky fruit.
The delicious Butterfinger® taste in a fun fractured skull shape. This seems like the perfect Halloween Candy treat for the little mischievous Bart Simpson in your life. This candy couldn’t look happier to be eaten.
These crispy, dark chocolate peanut butter cups are non-GMO and contain no artificial flavorings or dyes, easing the candy coma guilt just a little bit as a result. So now you can feel better and have all 10 fun packs instead of just the usual 5 at a time.
Who doesn’t love Jolly Ranchers? The lolly pops are stamped with Halloween shapes and come in the traditional flavors of Pink Lemonade, Watermelon, Green Apple, and Cherry. Same great taste, fun new shapes.
The traditional flavor of Sour Patch kids that we know and love, but now Halloween colors of orange and purple… and undead. Sometimes, I like to use a high pitch voice and pretend they are begging for freedom before I pop them in my mouth. Now with them being Halloween Candy, maybe it won’t seem so out of place?!?
New Skittles flavors have been brewed up this Halloween. You can take the skit-boozled challenge with flavors such as Twisted Tangerine, Gripping Grape, Petrified Pear, Lurking Lemon, and Bogey Berry. These flavors have me thinking Harry Potter characters Malfoy, Hagrid, Neville, Filch, and Ron talking about Bogey flavored Bertie Botts beans.
If you haven’t had enough caramel apple, these Milky Way are sure to be a sweet treat. They should be easier on your fillings too. Since they are limited, make sure to buy thousands of bags on your credit card and scalp them on ebay in the coming months. Easy, fool-proof way to become rich…wait, why am I telling you my plan?
Finally, We saved the best non-allergy friendly candy for last, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. No change of the recipe here: it is perfect. They did add edible Halloween prints to the tops of the cups. These delectable treats are only available at Walmart. By snack size, they mean the whole bag equals one snack right?
Allergen Friendly Halloween Candy Choices
Starburst chews are my son’s favorite candy. Most noteworthy, they are dairy and soy free, so they are a treat you can have on hand for the Trick or Treaters with dietary restrictions. This mix comes with fun favors including: Mysterious Mango, Batty Blackberry, Bewitched Blueberry, and Chilling Cherry Kiwi.
Since we are looking at allergen friendly candy, Sweetarts are one of the best choices. They contain no artificial flavors, and are not only a tangy treat, but they can keep little hands busy building skeleton. Two birds, one bag of candy. (Target exclusive)
