New: Glow in the Dark Wrappers

A new line of candy wrappers soaks up the light… then emits it on the night of Halloween. Perfect for dark porches and dimly-lit house parties.

Hello, spooky peanut butter cups!

Why the ghoulish glow, Kit Kat?

Hershey’s has a date with the candy bowl.

New: Halloween Wrappers

More into rave-y blacklight parties? The new wrappers on these Halloween Hershey’s Kisses light up in a vibrant orange flourish when exposed to black lamps.

If you can dress up like a cowboy, shouldn’t your candy be able to as well? These “Spooky Miniatures” Kit Kat Bars are dressed up in individually-wrapped costumes. Which one will you get?

New: Halloween Twizzlers

Peel them apart and make Halloween art! These Twizzlers are orange and black cherry-flavored.

New: Fun-Sized Dark Chocolate Kit Kats

They say dark chocolate is more rich with antioxidants, so why not give out healthy candy on Halloween? Just kidding, there’s no such thing as healthy candy. But these are still cute.

Standby Classics

These eyeballs look super-cool under a blacklight; the irises and veins glow orange.

Of course, there’s always Reese’s Peanut Butter cups in the shape of ghosts and pumpkins, too.
