2004’s Blood Orange Halloween Kit Kat!

CC_KitKatBloodOrangeTITLE PLATE-B

Traditionally, the United States gets the bulk of Halloween-themed candy, but in recent years the popularity of Halloween has grown around the world.  That’s led to some pretty cool Halloween confectionery releases originating in spots outside of the good old U.S.A.  One of them I’m excited to share is a Halloween release Blood Orange Kit Kat from Germany.

Collecting Kit Kat wrappers could easily be a hobby in itself, with seemingly endless special editions and regional releases having come and gone over the years.   I’ve really enjoyed the Kit Kat pieces I’ve picked up or saved for my collection, but my favorites tend to be the oddball flavors and especially the Halloween editions.  So when I first saw this next wrapper, I knew I wanted it in my collection.

Produced in Germany back in 2004, here is Nestle’s Kit Kat Blood Orange:

I love the illustration on that one – it’s awesome.

Over the last several years, Hershey’s in the United States has released a few different wrapper designs for their Halloween Kit Kat.  Here they are:

Possibly one of the neatest Halloween Kit Kat wrappers from recent years came out of Nestle Canada in 2012 and has also made return holiday appearances in the two years after.  Here it is:
