It’s been a whirlwind of comic book-related fun for me this weekend at New York Comic Con 2012, and today I’m enjoying winding down from that. So for this Sunday post, I’m going to cover two different dipping candies that created Halloween-themed versions; one from the 1990’s here in the USA, and the other from just last year over in the UK.
First up is a great Halloween-themed package version of the classic treat Lik-M-Aid Fun Dip. Created in the 1990’s, Ghoulish Fun Dip provided a perfectly spooky-ized version of the standard packaging at the time. This is the package I’ve had in my collection for several years now:
While Fun Dip has been the dipping candy of choice here in the USA since the early 1970’s, the UK has had Swizzels-Matlow’s Double Dip, a product that is virtually the same treat. Last November, I had the pleasure of visiting the UK, and fortunately for me there was still a bit of Halloween candy product on shelves. One of the really cool items I picked up was the Halloween version of Double Dip, branded as Spooky Dip. Let’s take a look:
I really dig how every letter in the Spooky Dip logo is its own creature – fun stuff!
And that’s everything I have for you today on the topic of Halloween-themed dipping candy. See you next time!
