The Creepiest Candy for Halloween ’16


With so much candy out there, it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what kind of candy will be both satisfying to Trick-or-Treaters and those who treat them.  The best suggestion is to get candy that you and your family enjoy!

This year, there are a few really cool offerings as well as some classic candy that you can never go wrong with!  This year, Hershey’s has decided to add recipes and ideas to the back of their Halloween candy bags as part of their “Celebrate with Hershey’s” campaign.  As such, when you pick up that bag of Kit Kats, York Peppermint Patties, or Reese’s, you will also be getting a cool idea to take your treats to the next level.

In addition to the treat tips, Hershey’s has revamped some of its candy bags.  Check out the penguins on the York Peppermint Pumpkins!
