Today I’d like to share a few items from Black Forest, a company best known for their classic Gummy Bears. Black Forest released a fun new boxed Halloween edition of their Gummy Bears for 2013 and I’ll take a look at that along with some pretty awesome items they first released during last year’s spooky season.
Let’s kick off today’s coverage with Black Forest’s Gummy Bears Halloween box. I should note that Black Forest is now part of the Ferrara Candy Company, the company created from the merged Ferrara Pan with Farley and Sathers. Here’s the box:
That box goes to show you that sometimes all you need are the classics to transform a standard box to a Halloween seasonal; A witches hat, jack-o-lanterns, spider webs and bats.
As I was getting today’s post together, I realized that I had picked up some other cool Black Forest Halloween Gummy items last year that I never got around to sharing.
With the name Black Forest, this confectioner seems perfectly suited to the creation of Halloween candy and last year they released gummies based on two Halloween monster classics: Vampires and Werewolves. So here they are, Black Forest’s Juicy Oozers Gummy Vampires and Gummy Werewolves Halloween 24-pack:
I’m sure that the success of the Twilight film franchise had something to do with the Vampire/Werewolf combo and the graphic styling of those packages. Whatever the case, it’s great to see them getting a somewhat serious confectionery treatment.
And that’s everything I’ve got today on Black Forest’s Halloween offerings.
See you next time!
