Hershey’s Candy Corn Bars – New for Halloween 2014!

CC_Hershey's Candy Corn TITLE PLATEb

Back in December I covered Hershey’s fun new holiday seasonal offering; the candy cane-flavored Hershey bar.  I thought that bar featured an elegant and appealing wrapper design as well as being a pretty tasty offering to boot.  For Halloween this year, they’re offering another bar with another unusual holiday-themed flavor featuring the same packaging style.  This time it’s Hershey’s Candy Corn!

While the candy cane Hershey’s offerings from last Christmas came in full-size bars, thus far I’ve only encountered the candy corn variety as part of a snack-size multi-pack.  Here’s what the package looks like:

As I mentioned back in December with the candy cane release, for me what makes these so appealing is how they take the tried-and-true Hershey bar look but give it a bit of color and fun.  Here’s one of the individual snack size bar wrappers:

For those that don’t recall exactly what the Hershey’s Candy Cane bars look like, I put together this side-by-side comparison shot:

Unfortunately, the actual candy corn graphic is found only on the large multi-bag and not on the individual snack size wrappers.   That makes me hope we’ll eventually get a full-size bar release for Hershey’s Candy Corn – if not this year, perhaps in 2015.   Heck, I’d love to see them use this format for a continuing series of unusually-flavored Hershey bar releases.  It’d be great to be able to have a whole assortment of oddball-flavor Hershey seasonal wrappers to collect (and fun flavors to try).  Just imagine what else they could do?

And that’s everything I’ve got to share on Hershey’s new candy corn-flavored bar for Halloween.

See you next time!
