Sour Patch Kids Tricksters
Add some extra trick to your Halloween treats with the deceptive Sour Patch Kids Tricksters. While they still have that sour then sweet sensation of the original Sour Patch Kids, these candies may not be what they seem. Your trick-or-treaters will definitely be thrown for a loop when their Sour Patch Kids are not the flavor they thought they were, but still give them that addictive sour-then-sweet sensation.
Hershey's Glow in the Dark
Light up your Halloween candy bowl with glow in the dark candy bars from Hershey’s. Your trick-or-treaters will be thrilled before they even tear open the wrapper as their candy lights up the night.

Kit Kat Halloween Darks
Give a little love to the dark chocolate lovers out there and throw some Kit Kat Halloween Darks into the mix when you’re preparing your spooky treats.

Taste the rainbow (and maybe something even funkier) with the new Zombie Skittles.

Challenge your trick-or-treaters, or yourself, to see which flavor awaits. Eating candy has never been more exhilarating, just what Halloween is all about.
