With assortments that first arrived in stores just last Christmas, Whitman’s has been releasing licensed Peanuts holiday-themed chocolate bars in fun, illustrated boxes. I first covered them for Christmas 2013 and followed that up with a piece on their Valentine’s assortment earlier this Spring. Today I’m excited to share their fun new trio of Halloween-themed Peanuts chocolate bars for 2014!
Peanuts is an evergreen license so I think it was a smart move for Whitman’s to pick it up and to utilize it in this way, with new seasonal releases throughout the year. They’re inexpensive, typically selling at a dollar each at retail, so perfect for casual gift-giving – and who doesn’t love The Peanuts Gang and The Great Pumpkin?
The graphics for the packaging on these have been a mix of new designs as well as images inspired directly from some of the classic Peanuts TV holiday specials.
Here are the three chocolate bar boxes that make up this years’ Halloween assortment:
Beyond these single chocolate bar releases, I believe Whitman’s has begun to put the license to use with other format confectionery products.
And that’s everything I’ve got to share today on Whitman’s delightful Halloween-themed Peanuts bars.
See you next time!
