|Kitsa||Looks like this is next.|

The Vampire Hair looks awesome and for some reason I really like the idea of edible fiberglass.
Bandai just seemed to pick the strangest, cheapest candies.

|Kitsa||And an aftertaste of...soap? Why am I tasting soap? :/|

So yeah, this stuff was all on a cart at Five Below for 25c a pop so I got a mess of it.
Here's the Vampire Hair that Foy's didn't have. The package said this is "Wild Berry" flavor.
The texture was a little freakier than I remembered with the Werewolf Fur. Less "cotton candy" and way more "fibreglass insulation". It was so fine-spun that when you went for a pinch of it, your fingers got the sensation of pinching through cornstarch or talcum powder that gave a little crunch and then no resistance at all. Regardless, since I hate Green Apple in all its forms, Vampire Hair's Wild Berry was a definite improvement on the counterpart. Sort of half Blue Raspberry and half Assorted Fruit Tums.
The pop rocks were not quite as potent, which was a disappointment.
Then we've got these fork-eyeball things called "Forkz", also made by bandai:
They come in various colors, but the gist of it is that there's a roughly eyeball-like lollipop impaled on a black plastic fork. I was unimpressed, but Mr. Kitsa called them "unnerving". The flavor was your standard generic corn syrup lollipop flavor, with a hint of whatever flavor the iris was supposed to be (this one was Green Apple, of course).
So that's the Bandai collection as I know it.

|dextire||Congrats on finding the mother lode of bizarre Bandai candy! I look forward to seeing the pics.|

|Kitsa||I went to a store called Five Below today (everything $5 and under), and they had the entire line of Bandai halloween crap on clearance. I got a whole mess of it for $1...vampire hair, werewolf fur and some sort of candy that's eyeballs impaled on forks. I'll take pics tomorrow.|

Thanks for the pics, Darkvare! Very cool stuff.
Bring on the Trick-or-Treaters!
Happy Halloween, everyone!

I've never seen a chocolate one.
I also feel sorta vindicated because every sign says Dia de Muertos and every Spanish teacher in the states says Dia de LOS Muertos and that never flowed right in my head, so I'm glad to see that they were wrong kinda

|Oct 29th, 2012 01:31 PM|
|Mockery||Agreed. If you can, take some photos of the market itself, Darkvare. Would love to see 'em!|
|Oct 28th, 2012 11:25 PM|
|dextire||That's awesome, Darkvare. It'd be great to see some pictures of both the candies and the cemetery markets as well.|
|Oct 28th, 2012 10:27 PM|
|darkvare||the market outside the cemetries has set up so might go buy some sugar skulls and other candies|

Lots of Meridas. Tons....liiterally, 50 or 60- Monster High costumes. It took forfreakingever to get all the kids paraded across the stage, and then they sent everyone into the audience and Snoopy's handler came back out and picked the winning kids.
I was just thrilled that we didn't have to spend $50 on souvenirs. The lady in line ahead of me at the pizza restaurant paid $75 for a medium pizza and five sodas.

|dextire||Well, I guess she had to do something to make her kid stand out. Because making an clever and original costume was obliviously not something that she was capable of.|
|Oct 28th, 2012 09:53 PM|
|Kitsa||There was a woman in front of us whose kid was one of about 30 Meridas, and she was mercilessly and LOUDLY ripping on all the other costumes because her kid had the OFFICIAL Disney wig and bow, etc etc. obnoxious.|
|Oct 28th, 2012 09:48 PM|
|dextire||That's awesome! Enjoy being the superior costume parent.|
|Oct 28th, 2012 09:33 PM|
|Kitsa||Chicken suit with red felt dots and a treat bucket that looked like a giant bottle of calamine lotion. Chicken pox.|
|Oct 28th, 2012 09:11 PM|
What was the costume of?
|Oct 28th, 2012 09:00 PM|
|Kitsa||My kid won the costume contest at King's Island and got a big backpack full of stuff from their gift shops, while we got the unending hate of other parents.|

I got the taffy from a local grocery store called Publix, and the cyclops jawbreaker from a gas station called Hess Express.
You can at least find the cyclops and it's kin online though. And the taffy is available on the Russell Stover site.
|Oct 28th, 2012 06:12 PM|
|Mockery||Nice finds! I've never seen those particular candy corn chews before and I love that cyclops jawbreaker! Where did you find 'em?|
|Oct 28th, 2012 05:19 PM|
I managed to pick up a couple more Halloween things while out shopping this weekend.
Russell Stover Candy Corn Chews
I haven't seen candy corn taffy in a few years, so this was a pleasant surprise.
And I'm happy to say that they taste the same as ever, just like chewy candy corn.
I.C.U. Cyclops Monster Jawbreaker
This smartly dressed, dripping eyeball cyclops is a jawbreaker with bubblegum in the middle. Awesome!
My Pet Ghost
I found this thing at Hallmark of all places. It does a trick with a mirror and a piece of glass to project a glowing, transparent ghost in the middle of the jar.
The ghost jar looks pretty nice and detailed on both the front and the back.
And it gives you a full description of your chosen ghost (Maxwell McSpooky in my case) and it also includes some goofy Halloween puns such as "Handle with Scare" and "Store at Gloom Temperature".
When you press on the top on the jar, a blue glow and some general "mad scientist" sound effects start up, then the ghost shows up and says one of a few phrases like "Now, where did I put my spectral analyzer?".
I was glad to find a few more Halloween things as most of the stores have already switched over to Christmas.
