Halloween Countdown: Bloody Bites!


I shambled across these in my latest trip to Dollar General. They're plastic fangs packaged with packets of watermelon flavored "blood". 


I have to say, some of the dollar store candy makers are really upping their game when it comes to packaging. It used to be, you'd get a plain plastic bag, usually in orange or black, that would say something like "Halloween Mix" on the front. Now they're coming out with original creations, and adding some great artwork as well.



See what I mean? Looks like that green faced vampire is a bit of a sloppy eater. Either sexy lady vampire is much more careful with her food, or she hasn't had a chance to dig her fangs in yet.


Bloody Bites are distributed by a company called Bee International. However, for their Halloween candies, they've become ZomBee. If you look close enough, you can see that it's actually a zombified version of their usual logo. I also love their slogan, "Eating Brains Since 1970". I have to admire that they put so much effort in a detail people won't even notice.



Each pack contains a set of glow in the dark plastic teeth, and an oozing candy blood bag. Initially, I was under the impression that I was supposed to use the plastic teeth to bite into the blood bag, thereby releasing the candy into my mouth parts. It appears I was wrong, because I wasn't able to tear that bag with any amount of chewing. It goes without saying, I just had to give them a taste. I even filmed it so you can share in my pain.



I have a couple big things planned for the weekend, but it's only going to happen if the weather holds out. So keep your fingers crossed.

Oh, didn't I mention that the fangs glow in the dark?


Sweet dreams....
