Halloween Candies You Need to Try
Spooky Eyeballs from Candylabs
These passionfruit-flavoured treats are a fun way to get some fresh and crunchy treats this Halloween! Candylab is a Montreal-based company that designs and handcrafts (video) all their candies 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!
The spooky snakes of Haribo
This gummy creation combines two coiled snakes, one sweet, the other sour! Designed to be eaten at once, or pulled apart, they come in six flavours including cherry + orange, apple + lemon, and blueberry + blackcurrant, available in a variety of sizes. Munch them before they bite your tongue!
Take a bite out of Hershey!
Once you’ve had the satisfaction of piercing one of these classic milk chocolate kisses and releasing the delicious red 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!
Halloween props from Hersheyland

A bowl of spooky peanut butter assortments from Hersheyland
Halloween is incomplete without these iconic decorations, ghouls, and beasts. And if you’re a fan of peanut butter and chocolate, this assortment of ooky spooky Reese’s cups is for you. Unwrap them if you dare…
A delicious assortment of, you guessed it – bats and bones from Sweet Maple Candies
These Halloween candies are available in the colours 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.
A cluster of brain freezes from Squish
Icy blue brain gummies that taste like blueberries with blue liquid centers that explode when you bite into them! These one hundred and twenty gram bags are also available as sugar-coated Blizzard Brains, and regular sweet and sour strawberry Brains. Squish is another Montreal-founded candy company that proves time again that you don’t have to be a kid to love candy.
Extra-terrestrial candies from Squish
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!
Skeleton packaging for Halloween at Hersheyland
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.
A cute new little house by Nestle
Kit Kat and Smarties have come together to create an adorable and fun buildable Haunted House! Create a beautiful new (and delicious) home for this new family in the neighbourhood of Halloween classic monsters such as Frankenstein, a witch, a mummy, a bat, or a vampire. Made of dark and milk chocolate Kit Kat bars, decorate this house to your taste with orange and black Smarties and orange icing. Happy haunting!
What Makes Halloween Candies So Exciting?
Variety & Creativity:
The very first thing that grabs our attention is the amount of creativity that has been put into the design and production of these treats and their variety. You can enjoy Halloween treats in many creative ways, such as decorating spooky desserts, crafting edible decorations, or using candies in games and activities. Whether you’re a fan of the event or not, you’ll find something that will eventually put a smile on your face!
Halloween candies come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colours, and flavours, a lot of which are bizarre and spooky or directly relate to seasonal themes by themselves and their packaging, such as pumpkin-shaped chocolates, ghostly gummies, or candy eyeballs.
Candies encourage social interactions, as kids and adults often gather to have fun and share their candy hauls. Many adults have fond memories of trick-or-treating as children, and Halloween candies can evoke that nostalgia, reminding them of their own childhood.
Halloween snacks are special seasonal treats that might not be available year-round. This creates a sense of urgency and excitement.
Candy is often seen as a reward for participating in Halloween traditions like costume parties, haunted houses, or carving pumpkins. Trick-or-treating also adds an element of surprise as children go from door to door, never quite knowing what types of candy they’ll receive.
If you’re interested in more wholesome and healthy Halloween options or allrgen-free Halloween alternatives, we remind you of these two posts. Don’t worry, we promise you’ll find some Halloween candies, like brains and worms over there as well. But if this list is everything you desire, we’ll leave you to enjoy your spooky treats.
