New for 2013: Halloween Sugar Babies Monster Boxes!

CC_Monster Sugar Babies TITLE PLATEDuring the Halloween season each year I (along with my recruited friends and family) scour store shelves to see what special packaging has been designed for the holiday.  There are many instances of seasonal items never showing up in the places I shop, but landing in the locales where my gracious candy agents are hunting.

This year, I expanded the search to online candy retailers – and I was surprised at how much is produced that doesn’t seem to hit mainstream retail at all.  Such was the case with the topic of today’s post:  Halloween Sugar Babies monster boxes!

Without a doubt, my favorite Halloween seasonal packaging occurs when classic monsters are included.  I enjoy Jack-O-Lanterns as much as anyone but a classic monster is where it’s really at for me.  So when I saw a Sugar Babies/Sugar Daddies Halloween multi-bag online containing fun-size Sugar Babies boxes with monsters on them, I couldn’t hit “Add-To-Cart” fast enough.

Just over a week later, the goodies arrived at my door.  When I pulled the Halloween Sugar Babies/Sugar Daddy package out of its shipping box, I immediately took note of how big the bag was — weighing in at just over a pound and boasting 40 pieces in the package, it was a bit of a monster itself:

Tootsie Roll Industries - Sugar Babies-Sugar Daddy - 1-pound 40-piece Halloween candy bag package - 2013

Tootsie Roll Industries – Sugar Babies-Sugar Daddy – 1-pound 40-piece Halloween candy bag package – 2013

Though there were 40 pieces in the bag, there were slightly more Sugar Daddies than Sugar Babies, and the Sugar Daddies were in less-exciting, monster-free wrappers.

I quickly began sorting out the monsteriffic Sugar Babies boxes, knowing from the website where I ordered them that there would be four different box designs, each with one of the monsters.

Unfortunately, like a kid who hopes to build a set of Wacky Packages from his full box of stickers and comes up short, my Sugar Babies assortment sported one MIA monster.  And not only that, but the one who called in sick to this multi-bag was my favorite of the bunch:  Frankenstein’s monster.

Though my hoped-for set of four would remain incomplete for now, I still came away with three very cool Sugar Babies Halloween monster boxes.  And here they are:

For the sake of completeness in today’s coverage, here’s what a complete set of the four boxes would look like:

Aren’t those fun?  I really dig ‘em.

If anyone out there happens to have bought these and has a spare Frankenstein box, please let me know.  I hadn’t planned to order another full bag to try for a Frank, but I still might!

And that’s everything for today’s post.  See you next time!
