Halloween 2010 Product Run Down

Since this is the sixth Halloween I’ve covered on Candy Blog, it’s hard to find Halloween candies to feature that I haven’t reviewed before. So I thought I’d do a run down of what I’ve been seeing in stores again this year for the Halloween Season. These are just candies that are special to Halloween, not regular candy in large bags or with special wrappers.

    1. I have been looking EVERYWHERE for Caramel Apple Kisses and Pumpkin Spice Kisses - hunted for them last year, too, but no luck.  Hunting for them this year, no luck.  I’ve looked at various Walgreens, Rite Aids, Targets, and CVS stores.  Is anyone finding them?

    2. I found the pumpkin spice kisses at Target the other day, and they are DIVINE.  As described in the review, like sweet pumpkin cheesecake. 

      Don’t look in the regular candy aisle, they’ll be in with the Halloween candy.

    3. I cannot find the Caramel Apple Kisses for the life of me, nor the Caramel Apple pops (not even the regular green apple ones, but especially wanting the orchard one), nor the Mary Jane wicked mix which I’m really curious about, although again, I’d take a bag of regular ones but can’t find those EITHER. It’s like all the stores I’ve checked just have bags of kit kats and reese’s and that’s it. CVS, Rite Aid, Kroger… Sigh.

    4. Love seasonal stuff. Thanks for the roundup.

      Just one thing - vanilla tootsies are available all year long as part of the “Frootsie” mix bags.

    5. I’ve -only- seen the candy corn kisses and caramel apple kisses at Target—absolutely nowhere else!  Seems like this year has been pretty lame as far as new halloween products are concerned.

    6. The name “Bat Dots” is just…unfortunate.

    7. I have been searching desperately for the two wicked mixes (Mary Janes and Clarks) any hints where to get them in the Chicago area?

      Jules - I know! I haven’t been able to find them either! I would love to do the Clark Wicked Mix as my Halloween bowl.

      Laura - Here’s a photo from Target. They’re orange & punch flavored. I’m not sure what makes them spooky.

    10. Have you tried Farley’s flavored candy corn? They have a multitude of flavors now- creme brulee, caramel apple, blackberry cobbler, pumpkin spice, etc.

    11. Bat Dots…..BAT dots….never heerd of those. Bat dots must have driven many customers batty…..!

      Especially as there’s nothing to ever distingush them from Crows…how’s about MAKING them shaped like bats? smile

      (I had trouble chewing those and regular fruity flavored Dots in past, but I haven’t chewed these in a long while and may give them another try as I do love licorice.)
