HalloWatch 2013: Return of the Halloween Lunchables
Our slow burn ramp-up to October continues with a sighting of Halloween-themed Lunchables by Kraft. They seem to be the same versions that came out last year (there’s also a Turkey & Cheese crackers), but this Extra Cheese Pizza pack was more than enough to get me excited… about Halloween.
While the packaging itself screams spooky fun, with a freakishly eyeless vampire peering deep into my very soul, the contents are just like a normal pizza Lunchable with two great exceptions. First, there’s a chocolate crunch witch to replace whatever ordinary snack these packs come with and second, we get Scary Blackberry GHOUL-AID to wash it all down! True, it may be no Ecto-Cooler, but Scary Blackberry is still a seasonal classic that dates back to the 90s.
So as we wait on the inevitable arrival of Frute Brute and Yummy Mummy later this month, we can at least make lunchtime horrifyingly happy again. Now, if you’ll excuse me I’m going to pop in some Monster House while I sip on this squeezable juice box.
