This year’s Halloween junk food season continues to roll on, and so far, it’s been a great one. If you’ve not seen them before, check out the other fun junk foods I’ve found here and here. Now that you’ve checked those out, let’s take a look at what else I’ve found.
Monster Cereal Snack Packs
Now that the band is back together for their 50th anniversary, the Monsters have taken over this Halloween junk food season in an all-out assault as you’ll see as this post goes on. I’m not complaining one bit though, as we went so many years without the monster cereals in our lives that I cherish every year we continue to get them in their various forms.
These snack packs are such a great idea, I’m surprised we’ve never gotten them before. It’s such a simple concept, but I know I would love to get these things in my treat bags when I was a kid. Or today. Anytime is a good time for monster cereal.
Count Chocula Treats
If I were the Count, I’d be pissed about being left out of the cereal. I mean, they filmed a special documentary about the band getting back together after all these years, and then he got left out of the whole thing at the last minute. But I guess he might be getting the last laugh though as he is the only one with an exclusive goodie for the Halloween season. These treats were out last year, but I can’t remember if they were available in any years before that. But they were so good last year. If I weren’t diabetic, I could eat a whole box of these this season. But I’ll just have to settle for a couple of bites from one treat and be done with them, but oh what a few bites those will be.
Boo-Berry and Frankenberry Fruit Roll-Ups
Much like the monster cereal snack packs featured earlier, I can’t believe it took us so many years to get these monster cereal and fruit roll-ups crossovers. It makes perfect sense. The flavors just lend themselves perfectly to the Fruit Roll-Ups concept. Again, these were available last year and were really good, so keep your eye out for them this year.
Butterfinger Zombie Eyeballs
I can remember Butterfinger really becoming a thing in the late ’80s, and I’ve been a fan of them the whole time. They probably never experienced the heights of success like they did with their long sponsorship deal with Bart Simpson and his family, but they still hold their own on the candy shelves. Stuff like this is a natural extension, as all they have to do is make their popular candy and wrap them in a foil eyeball wrapper, and they have an instant Halloween hit.
2021 Mountain Dew Voo Dew
Three years in a row! Great job Mountain Dew! Any time you get a special Halloween-themed soda it’s a big deal, but Mountain Dew has raised the bar by doing for three years running now. I really hope they don’t stop anytime soon. And I like the fact that it’s a new flavor every year, and a mystery flavor at that! It’s something I legitimately look forward to every Halloween season now…getting to try the new flavor of Voo Dew. I’m not going to spoil anything for you by making a guess at the flavor here, but I will say that it was pretty good.
That’s all I ran across this week, but with the season really just now getting underway, I’m sure I’ll be finding more, so keep tunig in right here for more details.
