Nerds Candy Corn

The candy corn from Nerds isn't like other candy corn. It's got a soft and chewy center coated in a crunchy Nerds-like shell. Each bag has a mix of six flavors, with strawberry grape, blue raspberry fruit punch, and cherry watermelon centers covered in six different flavored shells.

Skittles Shriekers

Most of the pieces in Skittles Shriekers are regular Skittles, but some are so sour they'll make you shriek, so it's like playing candy roulette. Each bag contains citrus, green apple, raspberry, lime, and tangerine flavors.

Turkey Dinner Candy Corn

Turkey Dinner Candy Corn

Yes, this is candy and, yes, it really tastes like all the components of a turkey dinner. Each piece tastes like roast turkey, green beans, stuffing, cranberry sauce, apple pie, or coffee. Apple pie could be a winner, or maybe even cranberry sauce. But the rest? Pawn those off on unsuspecting kids.

Reese's Pumpkin Snack Size

If Reese's peanut butter cups turn into pumpkins for Halloween, does that make them Cinderella? They already are the belles of the ball. These snack-size peanut-butter gourds will have the neighborhood kids fighting over them.

Reese's Franken-Cup

This Reese's variation is a regular-shaped cup with chocolate on top but bright green cream in place of the chocolate on the bottom. Less chocolate = less awesome. 

Witch's Brew Kit Kat
Amazon

Witch's Brew Kit Kat

Kit Kat is well known for playing around with unusual flavors, but this Witch's Brew version is mostly just playing with color. The wafers are enrobed in a slime-green layer of marshmallow-flavored coating, which, once again, seems like a downgrade from chocolate.

Hershey's Cookies 'n' Cream Fangs

A candy that also doubles as a body part? Yes, please. These mini cookies-and-cream Hershey bars have fangs imprinted on them so you can roll your eyes at your kids after the seventh time they shove them under their lip. Pretend the little brown cookie bits are cavities and threaten them with a trip to the dentist.

Hershey's Halloween Snack Size Shapes

This big bag is filled with all the Hershey's favorites in festive, ghoulish forms. There are Reese's peanut butter pumpkins, Hershey's milk chocolate tombstones, Reese's white cream ghosts, and Hershey's Cookies 'n' Cream fangs. They're almost as much fun to play with as they are to eat.

Froot Loops Gummies

Froot Loops Gummies

We know kids' breakfast cereal is all sugar, so why not take it to its next logical step and just turn it into candy? That's what Kellogg's did with the new Froot Loop Gummies, based on its Toucan Sam-touted cereal. The gummy rings are coated in sugar, and they've got the same fruit-but-not-quite flavor. 

Snickers Peanut Brownie Squares
Amazon

Snickers Peanut Brownie Squares

While the full-size peanut brownie Snickers have been out for a while, this is the first time they're in tiny size for Halloween. The bars have a layer of peanut-studded brownie topped with caramel and milk chocolate. Anyone who misses the nougat is crazy.

Reese's Assorted Halloween Shapes

We've already established that Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are the best Halloween candy, and now they come in a fun shape assortment. There are the usual pumpkins, but also ghosts and bats for those who want something a little more spooky than squash.

Nerds Rope Halloween
Amazon

Nerds Rope Halloween

Nerds Ropes solved the problem of accidentally spilling Nerds everywhere. They're made up of a gummy string center with the tiny candies stuck all around it. The Halloween version swaps out rainbow Nerds for orange, purple, and white ones. It's not exactly groundbreaking, but it's festive.

M+M's Cookies & Screeem
Amazon

M&M's Cookies & Screeem

M&M's has found a way to put cookies-and-cream flavor into candy, and the company calls it Cookies & Screeem. Each M&M is made up of a chocolate-cookie layer around a center of cream filling, just like an Oreo.

Dove Pumpkins
Amazon

Dove Pumpkins

For all the chocolate snobs out there, this one's for you. There isn't anything different about these Dove Promises except the orange pumpkin wrapper. We give Dove a C- for effort, A+ for taste.
