Many youths, myself included, will be celebrating Halloween at home this year to steer clear of this malicious pandemic. 

To help ease the melancholic mindset of staying in this Halloween, Kool-Aid has launched a few Halloween-inspired items to celebrate the holiday, including Kool-Aid flavored Popping Candy

Yep, imagine the textural sensations of popping candy paired with your favorite Kool-Aid flavors. 

You can also find new Kool-Aid Ghoul-Aid Jammers, think Capri Suns filled with Kool-Aid, and Kool-Aid Man Halloween costumes to complete the seasonal vibes all at Shop.KoolAid.com.

Hope everyone has a safe, and spooky Halloween this year. Might take this opportunity to start up on The Haunting of Bly Manor.

Thanksgiving Dinner Candy Corn Exists And We’re Cautiously Excited

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a huge fan of candy corn. The polarizing treat tends to pop up mostly around the fall festivities, and this holiday season, Brach’s is adding a unique twist on their iconic candy corn.

The candy company has introduced an all-new bag of Turkey Dinner Candy Corn.

Turkey-flavored candy corn, you might think? Not quite.

The bag will consist of an assortment of sweet and savory flavors that make up the quintessential Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner. This includes roasted turkey, green beans, stuffing, ginger-glazed carrots, cranberry sauce, and sweet potato pie.

You can find the new Turkey Dinner 12-oz bag of candy corn exclusively at participating Walgreens locations now. Sure, I’m a little concerned about how savory candy corn tastes, but that’s not going to stop me from grabbing a bag.

Somewhere out there in the vastness of modern civilization, there is someone who has a house stocked with every Oreo flavor that’s ever existed. Well, that individual will have to add two more to that dream house. 

Next year, Oreo has announced they’ll be releasing a new Java Chip-flavored cookie and a Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie

The Java Chip will boast a coffee-flavored creme that features tiny little chocolate chips, and the Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie sounds pretty similar to a Nutella-flavored confection.

Arriving in stores in January 2021, the two new flavors will become a permanent addition to the Oreo lineup. You can bet we’ll be buying a bag or two of these as soon as they drop.

One of the most notable new additions are S’mores Bites, which include graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate, and raisins packed into a bite-sized morsel.

New NERDS Clusters Wraps The Candy Around Gummy Core

I’ve always believed that there exists a level of sweet tooth satiation that can only be achieved with a box of Nerds. My only gripe is that, in a rush to have some, I’ll tend to drop a few (dozen) getting them out of the box.

Now, from the hallowed halls of Nerds HQ comes a new form of the treat that avoids all that messiness. This new innovation wraps the colorful confections around a sweet gummy center.

The new Nerds Gummy Clusters are composed of mini Rainbow Nerds that wrap around a soft gummy center.

It sounds like biting into a sugar-packed dream, really.

You can find the new Nerds Gummy Clusters available this August at supermarket snack aisles across the country.

Jif’s New Squeezable Pouches Makes Serving Peanut Butter Insanely Easier

A nice creamy peanut butter sandwich is one of the purest delights in this life. The only downside for me, however, is sometimes I’ll fumble with the knife and make my peanut to bread ratio pretty uneven. The sandwich will still be delicious, don’t get me wrong, but some bites will have more bread than peanut butter and vice versa.

Now you can control the portion of peanut butter delivered to any vessel thanks to these new Jif Squeeze Creamy Peanut Butter.

The peanut butter brand has released a new squeezable pouch that releases your peanut butter with the precision of a seasoned surgeon. Through this new method, you can measure much more accurately for recipes and more importantly serve ants on a log without making a mess of your presentation.

You can find these new pouches and mini To Go containers at participating retailers and online this July.
