As you’ve probably noticed, Halloween candy has started appearing on the shelves of grocery stores everywhere. One new flavor of M&Ms I saw recently is “white chocolate candy corn.” Sounds promising. I will report back after I try it (and by “try it,” I mean “devour the whole bag in one sitting, feel deep remorse, and then eat broccoli for dinner as penance”).Image

I also found some “Kit Kat Dark,” which is Kit Kat but with dark, rather than milk, chocolate. HIGHLY recommend. I also like the orange-coated Kit Kat, which tastes like white chocolate. Both of these have been around for a while.

I haven’t seen these in a store near me yet–and I don’t like the original Peeps–but I am curious about the “chocolate mousse” flavor…

And now for some seasonal offerings that definitely fall in the “Interesting, but no thanks” category…

A stomach-sized bag of red liquid syrup. Yummy.

This appetizing treat has a “juicy gummy underbelly covered with a crunchy candy shell.” (Gagging as I type that.)
Image
If you like finding a stray hair in your food, you’ll LOVE eating a fistful of “fur”!

You’ll need a fork and knife to eat THIS gummy worm…and maybe a doggy bag too.

These “fingers” remind me of ET. 😦

Still hungry? More here and here.
