Halloween DOTS – Back for Another Season!

Just a few years ago, Tootsie started rolling out fun seasonal versions of their classic DOTS candies.  One of the coolest variety they’ve created are their Halloween DOTS, and they’re back again this season.   Today I’m going to take a look at them.

First up is the box for Ghost DOTS – these are the standard fruit-flavored DOTS but produced in a ghost-like semi-transparent color.  Here’s the box:

Next up, another spooky one – Bat DOTS in blood orange flavor:

And finally, here’s the most light-hearted of the trio, Candy Corn DOTS:

Holiday-themed offerings like these DOTS are fun for consumers and great for collectors, too.  These packages have been offered for three years now without changes, but eventually these styles of boxes will be retired.  For now, you can pick them up one more time, this Halloween season.   Next year, who knows?

And that’s everything for today’s coverage of Tootsie’s Halloween DOTS.  See you next time!
