For anyone who really loves Halloween—like, you plan your costume and elaborate Halloween party menu months in advance—this announcement couldn’t come soon enough. Hershey’s has redesigned the packaging for its Halloween treats to create glow in the dark candy!
Hershey'sA Look at the Glow-in-the-Dark Stuff
Before you get too scared, please know that the Halloween candy itself won’t be glowing in the dark—only the wrapper. The chocolaty treats inside are still the candy that Hershey’s sells all year long, so you don’t have to worry about eating radioactive Reese’s.
For the 2018 season, the Fun Size versions of three brands will glow in the dark:
- Hershey’s Bars (find them here)
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (find them here)
- Kit Kats (find them here)
Can’t wait to get your claws on this chilling candy? Each bag sells for around $2.99 at grocery stores and Halloween suppliers everywhere.
Pro tip: Hershey’s says you might be able to get the brightest glow by placing the candy under a black light. (Perfect for when you’re planning on throwing this witch-themed Halloween party…)
More Spooky Halloween Treats
America’s most popular chocolate maker has really come through for us in 2018. Hershey’s Bars, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kats aren’t the only candy to get special treatment.
Look out for “spooky foil” versions of Hershey’s Kisses, plus Dark Chocolate Kit Kats, Cookies n’ Creme Skulls and harvest-themed packaging for the Hershey’s miniatures. Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins will be back as well, along with spooky Reese’s White Chocolate Peanut Butter Ghosts.
Not a huge fan of the store-bought stuff? No problem—people will go batty for this homemade Halloween candy!
