2017 Halloween Food Finds

One of the best things about fall, and the Halloween season in particular, is all the cool Halloween food that comes out this time of year.  Some you can always count on seeing, while others are only on the shelves for a year or two, and some we may never see again.  That’s why it’s important to know when and where to find all the various tasty treats of the season.  This is probably only the first of many posts of this type for me this year, as I’m sure I will keep finding stuff as we get closer.  For today though, here is what I found while out at my local markets.  Oh, and be sure to check out all the cool stuff Dinosaur Dracula has found so far at 2017’s Best Halloween Junk Food, Part 1.

Halloween PEZ

Halloween PEZ Dispensers

PEZ always seems to come out with cool dispensers for various occasions, and this Halloween is no exception.  We’ve got the usual suspects like The Mummy, Dracula, and the Jack-o-Lantern, but I’m not exactly sure what the third one in line is.

If you can’t find these at you local store, don’t worry, Amazon has them here.


Reese's Spooky Eyeballs

Reese’s Spooky Eyeballs

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups is another candy you can find in various shapes for various occasions, and they’ve not disappointed this Halloween season with these peanut butter filled eyeballs.

Heshey's Skulls

Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Cream Skulls

Not to be outdone or left out of the Halloween goodies frenzy, Hershey’s has these delectable Cookie ‘n’ Cream Skulls.

Sorry, I couldn’t find these on Amazon yet.  Better keep a check at your local stores.


Milky Way Caramel Apple

Milky Way Caramel Apple Mini’s

Not so much a Halloween offering, but more of the special treats for the Fall season.  However, these thinks sound really good.  I guess Caramel Apple is the new Pumpkin Spice, because it seems to be popping up everywhere.

Amazon has these here 


Granola Bars

Fall Flavored Granola Bars

Again, not really what you think of when you think Halloween, but these fall flavors of granola bars look pretty good anyway.  Of course we have the ever-present Pumpkin Spice, as well as Apple Spice.  It’s not really Caramel Apple, but I think I like the thoughts of Apple Spice better anyway.

Pumpkin Spice Granola Bars are on Amazon, but the Apple Spice is not.


Little Debbie Fall and Halloween Food

It wouldn’t be a holiday season full of treats here in the South without Little Debbie being right in the middle of it all.  Their yearly selection seems to already be in full stock at the stores including the Fall Party Cakes, Chocolate Fall Party Cakes, Brownie Pumpkins, Bat Brownies, Pumpkin Spice Rolls, and the best of the all, the Pumpkin Delights.

Halloween Pencils

Halloween Pencils

I know this isn’t a treat of the food variety, but when I was a kid, as soon as my Mom saw these things, she would pick some up for me to use at school.  Anybody who was anybody had pencils like this leading up to Halloween.  Even those really cool kids that used mechanical pencils reverted back to the classic wooden #2’s for the time when the could be gotten with Halloween designs on them.


Well that’s what I ran across at my latest trip to my local Walmart.  I’m sure I’ll be posting more as I find it, so keep an eye out for 2017 Halloween Food Finds, Part 2.

Share the retro fun!
