Summer is in full swing, and in no particular order, I can't stop thinking about the beach, the new Taylor Swift album, and Slurpees (which taste even better with cotton candy on top). Hershey's, however, apparently only has one thing on its mind: the looming return of Halloween.
The iconic candy company recently previewed its 2020 Halloween line with us, and it's going to be a HAPPY one. Since I'm that person (er, freak?!) who likes white chocolate so much better than the real thing, I'm singularly excited for the Cookies 'n' Creme Fangs. If you bite along the lines as you eat, they magically transform into a selfie-ready set of edible teeth.
Today, we caught wind of a new Spooky Shapes Mix from the candy maker, which will included the aforementioned fangs. According to Instagrammer @CandyHunting, it will also come with Hershey's Milk Chocolate Tombstones, Pumpkin-Shaped York Peppermint Patties, Reese's Pumpkins, and White Reese's Ghosts.
"So cute!" one commenter responded. "This is going to be the best time of the year even in 2020, but only because of the candy." I agree! What a time to be alive! Truly!
Among the other treats Hershey's previewed with us that don't come in the Spooky Shapes Mix are: Witch's Brew Kit Kats with a green marshmallow cream similar in profile to white chocolate; Vampire Milk Chocolate Kisses with a strawberry creme filling; and Reese’s Franken-Cup Peanut Butter Cups, which have a surprise layer of green creme at the base of each cup.
