October 31 is looming large. Most trick-or-treaters have picked out their costumes. Pillow cases and plastic pumpkin buckets are out of the closet. And, candy is top of mind!

Here is a roundup of 5 of our most unique Halloween candies for this frightfully fang-tastic event:

1. World’s Largest Gummy Skull
Weighing in at 5 pounds, the World’s Largest Gummy Skull is grossly entertaining. The packaging includes a slot underneath where you can place your own small flashlight to make it glow. You can gift this cranium to friends and family, light it up … and eat it! Also noteworthy: it’s gluten-free.

2. Cauldron of Chocolate Gift Basket

Another great gift idea … especially for those who won’t be trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. Filled with mini Snickers, Milky Way, Hershey’s, Reese’s Cups, and more, this reusable 9 1/4″ x 9 1/4″ x 5″ black cauldron is great for handing out treats next year.

3. Snickers Pumpkins
If you’re a trick-or-treater and you get a Snickers shaped like a pumpkin, it’s highly doubtful you’ll trade it out at the end of the night  … unless you have peanut allergies.

4. Halloween Peeps
Halloween Peeps made our list of Halloween-must have because you can do so much with then. Pop them on top of cakes and cupcakes, insert them into treat bags, place them on a straw to create Peeps pops, string them to make Halloween garland, and, of course, eat them.

5. Fall Pumpkin Gummies
These bulk pumpkin-shaped gummy candies are ideal for Halloween parties because they add lots of seasonal color:  bright orange (orange flavor), yellow (lemon flavor), light orange (black cherry flavor). They’re also perfect for classroom parties and treat bags.

The Gummy Bear Artist 0

Let's Limbo by Crummy Gummy
From a recent Twitter post, I became acquainted with Crummy Gummy, a street artist from Florida who specializes in photographing “life through a gummy bear’s eyes.”

His work causes laughter. I had to find out more.

As luck would have it, Crummy Gummy (the artist goes by that name) graciously agreed to an interview. His behind-the-scenes commentary is just as clever and funny as his artwork. Read on …

 

Candy.com:  How in the world did you start photographing gummy bears?

Crummy Gummy: I had a creative block a few years back and became frustrated with what I was producing, so one day I just forced myself to become creative. I told myself that I would visit a convenience store, find some random items, and try to create something artistic out of it. Gummy bears were one of those items, and I photographed them in four different scenarios that day. I posted them online and within a few days they got almost 1,000 likes. That was the start of all this madness. Good thing I didn’t buy a plunger that day.

 

Candy.com: What’s the hardest gummy bear color to photograph? I’m guessing it’s the clear pineapple.

Crummy Gummy: You would be right. The ‘features’ do not show up so well on camera so I try to avoid that one. Plus, the lack of color bores me. That doesn’t mean I won’t eat a couple, though.

 

Candy.com: What’s your main source of inspiration?

Crummy Gummy: I think, as an artist, you should be open to all sorts of things and situations for inspiration. My photographs are very much based off human interactions, such as drama and suspense, to name a few. However, humor is one of my biggest sources of inspiration. Who doesn’t love to laugh?

 

Candy.com: What’s been your most fun shoot to date?

Crummy Gummy: Well, they [gummy bears] can all be divas at times, but The Prankster Part 1 and 2 would be my favorite, mostly because of the story behind them. On Part 2, the idea was to have the gummy bear hold a lit matchstick about to set off an M-98 that another bear was resting on. I took this photograph at my parents house, and when I went to light the match I accidentally lit the M-98. In a panic, I tossed it away from me, and it flew right behind the sofa where my mom was taking a nap. Let’s just say I learned some new Spanish curse words and almost gave my mom a heart attack.

Crummy Gummy Firecracker

Candy.com: Do you think you’ll ever photograph any other types of candies?

Crummy Gummy: I have used peeps and jellybeans in some past photos, but you can expect some gummy worms appearing in some photos at my Candyality show in Chicago. (See show info below.)

 

Candy.com: Where can the average Joe see your work?

Crummy Gummy: You can visit my website at CrummyGummy.com, but to be up to date with anything I’m doing, check out my Facebook page. I am also on Instagram @CrummyGummy. I’m a bit of a social media nut.

 

Candy.com: Gotta ask … What’s your favorite gummy bear color and/or flavor?

Crummy Gummy: Hands down, the green ones. Green’s my favorite color, and they are sooooo yummy. They also seem to be the ones always getting hurt in my photographs. I guess they are like “The Middle Child” in a family to me.
