Halloween Treats: Universal Monsters and Frito-Lay

The following does not constitute an endorsement of any product or retailer.   It is for information purposes only.

Many of you may remember the 1990s, when the Universal Monsters, Pepsi-Cola and Frito-Lay Chips were inseparable.  Recently, that relationship has been revived, although to a lesser extent.  Whilst Halloween shopping this past weekend, we were pleasantly surprised to stumble upon these monster-sized bags of chips bearing not only a Frankenstein image, but an official Universal Studios Monsters logo.  And while the artwork doesn’t look much like the classic Karloff Monster, it is nice to see Universal getting a shout-out from food makers, especially at this time of year.  Each sack holds 20 individually-packaged bags of chips.  If you don’t get too many Treaters, these might make a nice surprise for the kids that do show up, and they would definitely be good for a Halloween Night party.  Another Universal-licensed chip sack features Dracula, but the artwork doesn’t look much like the Universal Dracula or Bela Lugosi.  These are available while supplies last at various grocers, including select Wal-Mart locations.
