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.

Halloween Treats: Mickey Mouse and Friends Mini Cheese Balls Halloween Snacks

Since its divorce with McDonald’s, Disney has jumped headfirst into the snack market.  With everything from fruit snacks to juice drinks, Disney characters now line the shelves of grocery stores nationwide.  Now the Disney company has embarked on a new journey… into the world of cheese balls!  And who better than to put on the package than the Big Cheese himself – Mickey Mouse!

Yes, Utz brand cheese-puff snacks now have Disney characters on them, but the reason this new product is making headlines on this blog is because these Disney characters are dressed for Halloween.  The individual treat bags feature Count Mickula, Goofenstein, Devil Duck and more!

We enjoy being able to see Disney characters get their monster on, so we just had to share the development here.  We found these snacks at Target.  What other Halloween snacks have you seen and where have you found them?
