7 Spooky Season Snacks to Check Out

Glowing jack-o-lanterns lining the streets. Tree branches rattling in the wind. Creepy decorations covering houses head to toe. It’s that time of the year again.

Not only are there costumes and carved pumpkins, but there are also treats galore. Tired of eating the same fun-sized chocolate bars and bags of mini pretzels from trick-or-treating? Here are seven snacks that will be your new favorite treats to munch on during the spookiest time of the year.

  1. 1. A sweet treat that isn't a mess to enjoy.

    A twist on the classic fall apple treat, Caramel Apple Hi-Chews consist of a green-apple flavored fruit chew wrapped in caramel. You won’t be left with sticky, caramel covered fingers when enjoying this caramel apple-flavored candy as all you have to do is unwrap and pop one into your mouth. You can split a box of the chewy candy with some friends by buying a pack of 12 from Amazon for $24.

  2. 2. A spooky take on the classic marshmallow treat.

    Holiday baking isn’t just for the winter holidays. If you’re looking into getting your cookie decorating chops on this Halloween season, give the Rice Krispie Treat Ghost Pop Kit a shot.

Get together with some friends to make some of your own ghoulishly cute sweet treats. The kit can be bought from Target for $6.99.

Each box also comes with a DIY eye mask that you can add on to your own Halloween costume. Get a box for yourself from Japan Candy Store.
