Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s hard to believe that it’s already October 31st and the end of all the Halloween fun I’ve been having. Lots of non-site stuff to do still today, so this entry is going to be brief. And while the final post of the month-long CountdownToHalloween coverage is going to be a short one, it’s also a sweet one.
Just last week, the UK Branch Office of CollectingCandy.com (aka my wonderful friends Liz and Jonny) sent over a pair of Halloween candy items currently gracing store shelves in the United Kingdom. I’m excited to share them, so make the jump and check ’em out.
The pieces featured today both sport the Rowntrees name. Interestingly, Rowntree has a long and celebrated history in the United Kingdom, being the company that among other confectionery achievements created the very first Kit Kat bars. Nestle acquired Rowntree (then Rowntree-Mackintosh) in the 1980’s and for a time appeared to have retired the Rowntree name. In recent years however, the Rowntree brand name has been put back into use on select products by Nestle and it’s great to see.
So now, here are the two Halloween-themed Rowntree packages I’ve got to share:
I should note that the Randoms concept has been released here in the United States with Nestle’s Wonka branding. I wonder if the all-year-round version of Wonka Randoms are the same as the all-year-round Rowntree Randoms release? (I’ll have to look into that.)
And that’s everything on today’s short-but-sweet final entry in our 2014 CountdownToHalloween. It sure went fast, didn’t it?
I hope everyone out there has a fun and safe Halloween today. Enjoy the costumes and the candy!! See you next time!
