21 New Halloween Treats You Need To Be On The Lookout For

Every year, we all eat more Halloween candy than we likely should. Whether you raid your kid's stash, or you go buy the cheap stuff on November 1st, everyone has their guilty pleasures. It can start to get repetitive year after year.

That's why you need to keep your eye out for all the new candy that will be hitting the shelves for 2017! TRICK OR TREAT!

1. Pumpkin Pie Kit Kat

Instead of chocolate on the outside, the wafers are covered in pumpkin pie flavored creme. Sounds like a portable pie, if you ask me!

2. M&M's Cookies & Screeem

Dark chocolate filled with white chocolate, Cookies & Screeem M&M's are almost definitely going to be your new addiction.

3. Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Skulls

It's like my favorite things combined...peanut butter and Butterfingers. You can get a bag of the fun-size skulls this year, but let's be honest: any size is fun size.

4. Hi-Chew Sweet & Sour Mystery Mix

The white flavor is a total mystery and won't be revealed until mid-October, but grab a bag now so you can start guessing!

5. Reese's Peanut Butter Bats

Anything Reese's I'm on board for, and you can find these exclusively at Target.

6. Peeps Spooky Cats

Peeps used to just be an Easter treat, but now you can get them for Halloween, too! But I'd hardly call these cats spooky.

7. Cauldron Skittles

You can look forward to Twisted Tangerine, Petrified Pear, Gripping Grape, Bogey Berry, and Lurking Lemon. Of course, you'll probably be shoveling them into your mouth by the handful, so it won't make a difference.

8. Dove Chocolate Ghosts

Never underestimate the power of a basic piece of chocolate. I could eat this whole bag and have zero regrets, I'm sure.

9. SweeTARTS Skulls and Bones

Who doesn't love SweeTARTS? No one, that's who. They look like Flintstones vitamins, which could be a good thing or a bad thing...we're not sure, yet.

10. White Pumpkin Pie M&M's

M&M's keeps upping their game and honestly, I'm so thankful.

11. Brach's Cookie Candy Corn

For all you weirdos who enjoy candy corn, here you go. I don't know why you are the way that you are...but why did you have to ruin cookies?

12. Peeps Candy Corn Delights


13. Mike and Ike Sour-licious Zours Zombies

A good Mike and Ike can solve the world's problems. Green Apple, Blue Raspberry, Watermelon, Lemon, and Cherry, are all your flavor options.

14. Cookies 'n' Creme Skulls

Dia de Los Muertos is being well represented with these amazingly colorful skulls. The candy itself looks more like an egg, but the wrappers sure are pretty.

15. Godiva Pumpkin Spice Truffles

Okay, so these may not be a trick-or-treat kind of candy, but how amazing do they look?

16. Betty Crocker Fruit Halloween Snacks


The best 90s snacks of all time have come back as Halloween snacks, and we couldn't be more thankful.

17. Reese's Ghosts

Like I said, anything Reese's I'm here for it. Plus, I always love the white chocolate twist on these.

18. Milky Way Caramel Apple

I'll admit that these aren't new, per say, but they're seasonal...and they're damn good.

19. Triple Chocolate Kit Kat

HOLY MOLY do these sound delicious or what? Chocolate wafers, chocolate creme, covered in milk chocolate. Yes, please.

20. Starburst Halloween Mix

The new flavors are Mysterious Mango, Batty Blackberry, Bewitched Blueberry, and Chilling Cherry Kiwi. Let's be real, they could make it an entire bag of yellow Starbursts and that would be scary enough.

21. Candy Corn M&M's

Too far, M&M's. Too far.
