The spooky season is here, and this year’s celebration might be even bigger than ever. While the countdown to Halloween  might have already begun, the reality is that this year’s Halloween festivities will be overflowing with Halloween candy and Hershey’s has revealed its sweet offerings.

From trick or treating to just having candy in a bowl, everyone seems to have a favorite Halloween candy. Even though everyone has a preference, it is vital to be to be “that” house on the spooky evening, the one with the best treats.

According to a recent survey provided by Hershey’s, “66% of Parents with a child under the age of 18 plan to do more for Halloween this year compared to other years.” But, families aren’t the only people with Halloween on their minds, “86% of Americans ages 35-44 are either more excited or as excited about Halloween this year than in previous years.”

Whether it is visiting those haunted event, dressing up in the perfect costume or just enjoying the spooky season, Halloween is coming, and many people cannot wait. Luckily, Hershey’s has brought back many of its most popular Halloween candy offerings. While a few have a new look, those favorite flavors are waiting under those wrappers.

Which Hershey’s Halloween candy is part of your spooky celebration?

One of the most iconic candies and one of the most popular is the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. While that “egg” shape might still be hidden in your freezer, the Halloween inspired shapes are ghoulishly good.

The pumpkin shaped Reese’s are back. They are dressed up with some new colorful packages. Also, another option is the variety shape package that includes bats and ghosts. If you prefer a sweeter option, those white chocolate ghosts are a real treat.

Also, the Reese’s Franken-Cups have been resurrected for Halloween 2021. Last year’s innovation was a huge hit. Whether it was the colorful appearance or the slightly sweeter flavor, these Halloween treats are a must. Just be careful of the Bride of Frankenstein, she doesn’t like it if you steal her candy.

If you can’t wait to sink your teeth into all this candy, the Hershey’s Cookies ‘N’ Crème Fangs are back. While many people pick this candy because of the flavor, some kids love the chance to play with their food. Whether you make the perfect bite or that fang is slightly off center, everyone likes a little laugh to calm the nerves on Halloween.

For those people ready to stir up a good time, the Kit Kat Witch’s Brew is back. Another hit from Halloween 2020, the vibrant color revealed the sweetest flavor.

While many people couldn’t resist this flavor, the Kit Kat Witch’s Brew lent itself to some Halloween creativity. From a topping to a cake or cupcake to using the color on that Halloween candy board, there is always another reason to break into a Kit Kat.

Lastly, a holiday is not complete without Hershey’s Kisses. The Hershey’s Kisses Vampire Chocolates are back. Those filled chocolates had many people talking last year. While those classic thumbprint cookies might have had a burst of color and flavor, these candies were perfection on top of a brownie. If you haven’t tried that option, it is a must for Halloween 2021.
