These passionfruit flavoured treats are a fun way to get some fresh and crunchy treats this Halloween! Candylab is a Montreal-based company who designs and handcrafts (video) all their candy from scratch. They release limited time treats for some holidays, like Halloween, and this one is vegan, nuts-free, peanuts-free, and dairy-free. We’ve certainly got our eyes on this spooky candy!

3. Hershey’s Halloween 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!

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.

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. Kit Kat Breaking Bones

The satisfying crunch of the classic Kit Kat wafer takes on a whole other meaning with this spooky white creme version. Their individual format makes them perfectly sized for popping in a trick-or-treat bag, or keeping in your pocket to pull out when needed.
