These 3 Halloween-Themed Gift Bags Are To Die For

Whoever said Christmas and Hanukkah were the only gift-giving holidays never met our spookily small-batch, Drop-Dead Gift BagsYep, you heard it here first, people: Halloween is most fun and unexpected time of the year to give gifts! Orange really is the new black. 

Going to a costume party? These indie candy bags make an above-and-beyond host gift. Or sweet care packages for a kid, grandkid, niece or nephew away at school or living in another city. And, be honest, aren’t these scary good goodie bags exactly what your October-obsessed friend wants (the one who decided what they were going to be this year last November 1st)?

Below, three choices that’ll make ‘em scream: 

Tricks ‘N Treats
Boo! A Halloween bag packed with the most uncommonly delicious tricks and treats that've come across our tasting table this season: PB&J Chocolate Eyeballs made by Tumbador chocolatiers, our Mouth-Made High Five Chocolate Bar (so much better than that stuff that rhymes with ‘pieces’), Dark Chocolate-Covered Sea Salt CaramelsCaramel Apple Popcorn, foil wrapped Día de Muertos Skeleton Chocolate Pops and the best Salted Caramel Apple Salt Water Taffy we’ve ever tried (the secret is a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, fresh black pepper and a splash of Angostura bitters). Halloween has never been so spookily small batch. It's downright scary.

Indie Candy Bars
Our Indie Candy Bars taster is just what the guy in the Doctor Who costume ordered. In it they’ll find a Chocolate Peanut Butter Nougat Bar (a million times better than a Butterfinger), a Hazelnut Milk Chocolate Bar that’ll make them wonder why they wasted their time with Nutella when they could have had this, a Potato Chip Chocolate Bar with so much salty crunch, a Giant Fruit And Nut Dark Milk Chocolate Bar that literally weighs nine ounces, our Mouth-made Toffee Break Chocolate Bar and a white chocolate Passion Fruit Caramel Bar that looks as beautiful as it tastes in their Mouth. 

Candy Land
Yes, for that sweet-toothed sugar-lover in your life. Start at Caramel Castle with plenty of chewy, smooth Chai Goat Milk Caramels to go 'round, then cruise to Taffy Tower for shovelfuls of Peppermint Salt Water Taffy. Float away on Pumpkin Pie Marshmallow clouds or sugary Raspberry Pâte De Fruit Hearts, and wonder why you never switched to these indie reinventions of your nostalgic favorites before. Rainbow path not included.
