Glow In The Dark Reese's Cups Are This Year's Spookiest Halloween Candy

Candy Warehouse

Halloween is easily my favorite holiday - what's better than eating candy until you feel sick and watching scary movies?

There are a few yearly traditions that go hand in hand with this spooky celebration.

One is that homes across the country get decked out in fun and frightening decorations.

Another is that the biggest candy brands give their products Halloween-themed makeovers. And Reese's Peanut Butter Cups have outdone themselves this year.

Sweet and Spooky Halloween Flavors

This year, the peanut butter cups have been repackaged in special glowing foil.

The idea is that these candies will light up in a trick-or-treater's bag as they walk through the dark, and the effect is actually pretty cool.

Every wrapper gives off a ghostly green glow, and the shine gets stronger if the wrappers have been sitting under a light to "collect" the shine.

Peanut Butter Cups aren't the only chocolates getting this makeover either.

Snack-sized Kit Kats and Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars will also be available in the glowing wrappers for a limited time.

If you're less interested in glowing wrappers, and hungry for unique, limited-edition Halloween flavors instead, here's what you can look forward to:

Popular flavors from past years, including orange Halloween Kit Kats, Reese's Spooky Eyeballs, and the white chocolate Reese's Candy Corn bars will be returning to a store near you soon.

They'll be joined by new flavors, including dark chocolate Kit Kat bars, and a mixed bag of orange and black cherry Twizzlers.

For the bravest candy fans of all, new Candy Corn Sour Patch Kids are also worth a try.

Instead of sour gummies, the Halloween variety includes orange and purple candy coated with Sour Patch dust.

Candy corn and sour candy are both very divisive, so this new flavor is definitely not for everyone - but it's still fun!

Get in the Halloween Spirit!

Now that you're thinking about all of these tasty Halloween candy flavors, let's think about getting your home ready for trick-or-treaters.

These decorations are thrifty, fun, and guaranteed to impress your neighbors this Halloween.
