This year Topps/Bazooka introduced a new product extension for the season, Halloween Ring Pop Minis! Today I’ll be looking at those as well as the other Halloween Ring Pop goodies that I’ve picked up these last few years.
Before I get to the Minis, I’m going to cover the other Halloween Ring Pop packaging I’ve got in my collection.
I’d like to start with a groovy Ring Pop 2-pack as it sports some great Halloween cemetary graphics on the package. It also features an oh-so-Halloween swirled orange-and-yellow pop in Screaming Berry flavor:
That two pack is a pretty great bit of Halloween packaging.
Along with those 2-packs, Topps also released single pack styles for Halloween which featured a spider-web graphic design element:
I believe those spider-web packs are also the ones that have been included in the Halloween multi-boxes seen at various retail outlets the past several years. Here’s a photo of a few I saw in Target’s Halloween section this year:
Getting back to the headline topic of today’s post; let’s look at the Minis. When I first saw this year’s new Halloween Ring Pop minis, I just assumed that they were the full-sized Halloween single packs I’d seen in recent years, as this is how they appeared in an unsealed, haphazardly-displayed box:
Of course it turned out that these were not last year’s Halloween offering, but instead were a new product.
The new Ring Pop Minis for Halloween did opt to use a similar spider-web graphic design from previous years’ full-size packaging. The Minis came in three flavors:
There was one other Halloween Ring Pop item that I tried to pick up this year but was never able to find – the holiday packaging for Ring Pop Gummies. Never seeing them at retail, I decided to order them from CandyWarehouse, but even there I came up empty (they reported no stock on them – not sure if they were sold-out or if they never had them to begin with). Has anyone seen this groovy Halloween Mummy package for Ring Pop Gummies at retail anywhere?
So my hunt for the Mummy edition of Ring Pop Gummies begins.
And that’s everything for today’s post. See you next time!
