During a recent shopping trip to a Long Island Walgreens, I was assessing the Halloween candy assortment when I realized there were a lot of different styles of Russell Stover Pumpkins being offered. There were so many different examples — a cornucopia in fact — that I thought it warranted me dedicating a post to them all.
Before getting to today’s topic, I should note that this isn’t the first time I’ve looked at Russel Stover Halloween offerings as I dedicated a post to a few of them during my 2012 Halloween Countdown.
But getting getting back to that recent shopping trip. When I came to be standing there in front of all the different Russell Stover Pumpkin display boxes, I’ll admit to being surprised at the variety I saw. I’d dismissed these in previous years, and I’d never have guessed that there were more a few different versions.
Having had my attention piqued and realizing that I wanted to write about them, I grabbed a shopping cart and quickly filled it up with examples of each and every Russell Stover pumpkin there. When I got home, I laid them out to count how many there were.
A quick tally indicated that I’d purchased seventeen pumpkins, but somehow I doubled up on an Orange Pumpkin and a Red Velvet – so after weeding out the duplicates, I had fifteen different Russell Stover Halloween Pumpkins in front of me — astounding!
That’s quite a lot of variety for a seasonal offering like this, and as I’ve already stated – I’d never have guessed that there were this many. And heck, there might even be more, as I’m not sure that this is the complete assortment – but it’s certainly all they had on display where I was shopping.
So with all that said, let’s take a closer look at the wrappers I liberated from each of the fifteen different packages:
That’s all of them. I think it’s remarkable how my collector-mind works. A single version of these Russell Stover pumpkins is something that’s easy to overlook, but when it becomes a rich assortment like this, it’s suddenly much more compelling fare.
And that’s everything for today’s CountdownToHalloween coverage of this bountiful collection of Russell Stover Halloween Pumpkins. See you next time!
