Every Halloween I buy a bag of candy corn. Or two. I admit I have a huge weakness for candy corn. This year, when purchasing my candy corn, I noticed I had a choice of flavors like S'mores and Pumpkin Spice. What? Then I started to notice a deluge of different and crazy candy flavors for the season. Out of curiosity I snagged several unique items I had never seen before.
Some of this Halloween/Fall candy is strange. Some downright scary. Of course my idea for this post was probably just a huge excuse to buy a ton of Halloween candy. We have no trick or treaters expected at our door because we live in a brownstone in NYC where all apartments in the building are child free. We're also never at our house in Pennsylvania at Halloween (the East village is so much more fun) so there have been no opportunities to hand out candy to the locals there.
Below is my unbiased review of sampling what's on offer this year. I am sure I missed out on several new products, but since I am trick or treater challenged, I had to limit myself to what I could unload on co-workers and take to parties.
