Check out These Fun New Halloween Candy Options Available From Mars Wrigley Confectionery (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

If you are a chocolate lover like me, then you probably love this time of year, as this is when all the popular candy brands release their seasonal chocolates and candies for the holidays.  First up is Halloween, and the folks at Mars Wrigley Confectionery are not disappointing with their selection of chocolates available.


New for 2018...

And, returning favorites...


The kind folks at Mars Wrigley Confectionery sent along a few of their Halloween candies for me to sample and enjoy with my family.

 I will not lie, I wish my girls didn't see the box and the contents, as I would have had more time to stash a few more candies for myself to enjoy late in the evening when the house is quiet, and I am winding down the for the day.  There is nothing better than cozying up under a nice fleece blanket on the couch to catch up on your favorite show, get in a few chapters in a book, or just flip through a new magazine, as you indulge on some delicious mouth-watering chocolate. Mmm, I am getting hungry just thinking about it.    

Like I said, I was sent samples, which included Dove Pumpkins (milk chocolate, dark chocolate, caramel and milk chocolate), Milky Way Caramel Apple minis, and Fun Size M&M's milk chocolate in a fun glow-in-the-dark trick or treat packs.  

My girls were quick to call the M&M's as those are their favorites.  And, when they saw that the wrappers glowed in the dark, they couldn't wait to tear in the package, hold up to the light and then run off to basement stairs where it was dark to see for themselves.

When it came to taste testing the M&M's, I didn't have to worry as these are a must have in our house, no matter the season.  

We even use them in our schooling to help with math, or to cover BINGO cards. And, the best part of using them is you get to eat them in the end. :-)  The two other Mars Wrigley Confectionery products I was sent were new to us, and I was eager to try the caramel apple milky way minis.  I used to love caramel apples as a kid, but my teeth can no longer handle them, and I am afraid my girls will get cavities or pull out an adult tooth the way they eat a caramel apple, so I usually skip when we are fall apple and pumpkin picking and see them for sale.  OMG, these caramel apple minis are so delicious.  I am not usually a milky way fan, as I like chocolate bars with nuts, but oh my I couldn't get over just how good these little minis were.  You could taste the milky way flavor, paired with a rich ooey gooey caramel apple, to make it amazing.  My girls kept giggling every time they would take a bite and see the caramel stretch out.  But, I didn't have to worry about it getting everyone, as they were quick to take another bite and then it was gone, and they were left licking their fingers and hoping for a few last drops of melted chocolate mixed with caramel to lick up.  No such luck! :-)

If you are a fan of silky smooth chocolate, then you will love the Dove Pumpkins, which come in festive fall colored foil wrappers (green, yellow and orange) with a pumpkin imprint on it.  The wrappers are labeled so you don't have to guess which one is the dark chocolate, milk chocolate or caramel and milk chocolate mix.  These were the ones I wished I had snatched up and hid on the girls, as I knew that once they tried them, they would be going back to the candy dish for another, and another, and so on.  And, before long, the only thing left in the candy dish would be a couple crumbled up foil wrappers for me to stumble upon and be disappointed when I went to reach for a Dove pumpkins candy.  Thankfully, though, and shh, don't tell anyone, but I picked up a couple bags of these and hid, so that they can enjoy them, and also have a bag on hand to put out at Thanksgiving, as I know family and friends will enjoy grabbing a couple to enjoy while visiting. 

With Halloween fast approaching, now is the time to pick up your family's favorite Halloween candy to hand out to to trick-or-treaters, as well as candy you want to keep and enjoy yourself.  Come on, you know you probably a selection of candy you know the kids in the neighborhood will not eat, just so it is leftover and you have to eat it so it doesn't go to waste..we all do that.  Don't be disappointed by thinking it is too early to stock up on Halloween and fall candy, and have a poor selection to choose from, and then be that house that handed out lousy candy on Halloween night. :-)  If you are looking for some new Halloween candy options, you should really check out the ones available from Mars Wrigley Confectionery.  I had so much fun sampling three of their new additions with my family, and have already stocked up on our Halloween candy to hand out, and candy for our candy bowls for the fall, as well as my "me time" drawer stash. 

I can't wait to see what Mars Wrigley Confectionery has in store for Christmas candy! :-)
