Scary Candies for Halloween that make You Woo-Hoo

2020-10-28   ◆   2 minutes read

When was the last time you slept with the light on? After you read our list of 10 spooky and creepiest Halloween candies, you might be doing just that!

Brace yourself as we dive headfirst into the latest and greatest scary candies for Halloween for this spooky season. While we’ve already compiled a list of healthy choices and allergen-free alternatives, this one is a no holds barred run down of some pretty creepy jack-o-lantern worthy candies. In alphabetical order we present the following:


  1. Allan Big Foot Sour Blue Raspberry

Made with real fruit juice, this sweet gummy candy is a sour twist on the classic Allen treat. Available in 141g bags, they give new meaning to toe jam and they’re the best foot shaped candy around. Beware – the bigfoot is after you!

2. Haribo Twin Snakes

This new gummy creation combines two coiled snakes, one sweet, the other sour! Designed to be eaten at once, or pulled apart, they come in six wild flavours including cherry + orange, apple + lemon, and blueberry + blackcurrant. Available in 142g bags. Munch them before they bite your tongue!

3. Hershey’s Vampire Kisses

Once you’ve had the satisfaction of piercing one of these classic milk chocolate kisses and releasing the delicious red liquid, strawberry creme filling, it’s easy to see why you get addicted to it, like a vampire. Suck this red liquid to join the vampire family!

4. Kool-Aid Ghoul-Aid Popping Candy

This Scary Berry Ghoul-Aid version of the regular Kool-Aid Popping Candy (available in Tropical Punch, Cherry and Grape) comes in 6.8g packets and is sure to rock the socks off your tastebuds. It is a limited edition version, so be sure to get in quick!

5. Reese’s Peanut Butter Spooky Eyeballs

Halloween is incomplete without edible eyeballs, and if you’re a fan of peanut butter and chocolate, these are the Spooky Eyeballs for you. Your own eyes will be bulging and your mouth salivating as you unwrap the blood-shot eye foil from each of these familiar tasting chocolate treats. Become a chocolate ogre for one day!

6. Sweet Maple Candies Bats and Bones

These Halloween scary candies are available in the colours of black, orange, and white. This collection of bats and bones is the perfect addition to a spooky sack. Bloody Bones, Dingbats, and Zebra Bones are additional alternatives if you don’t want to mix your bats and bones. 

7. Squish Brain Freeze

Icy blue brain gummies that taste like blueberries with blue liquid centers that explode when you bite into them! These 120g bags are also available as sugar coated Blizzard Brains, and regular sweet and sour strawberry Brains.

8. Squish Vegan Alien Invasion

It can be easy for someone to overlook aliens this time of year. If you’re not careful, these vegan gummies with natural colours (from blackcurrant, black carrot, and tumeric) will abduct your tastebuds. They’re available in four sizes, the largest of which is a whopping 2kg. Thanks, Squish!

9. Trolli Gummi Sour Bats, Sour Cats, and Sour Rats

They introduced the bats in sour cherry, grape, lemon, lime, orange, and strawberry-flavoured, to be precise. But then they go and add sour cats and rats to the mix? Yes, please! Our only complaint is that the 113g bags are too small.

10. Zombie Skittles (Video)

We’re loving the names of these spooky Skittles. Described as candy Russian roulette, there’s flavours like mummified melon, blood red berry, and bogeyman black cherry. They even have a special “rotten zombie” flavoured candy hidden in there! With almost 300g to a pack, you can quickly find that rotten flavour and trick your friends!

If you’re interested in more wholesome and healthy Halloween options or allergen-free Halloween alternatives, we remind you of these two posts… Don’t worry, we promise you’ll find some scary candies for Halloween like brains and worms over there as well! But if this list is everything you desire, we’ll leave you there and wish you a safe and spooky Halloween.
