Your kiddo uses glow-in-the-dark paint, has glow-in-the-dark shoes and makes glow-in-the-dark slime. It was only a matter of time before glow-in-the-dark Halloween candy became a reality. And apparently, it’s the new “it” treat for the 2018 Halloween season!

Before you start worrying about your pint-sized snacker chowing down on some sort of chemical-filled candy (because really, what would it take to make chocolate glow?), this isn’t some kind of nuclear accident-turned-Halloween treat.

The candy itself doesn’t actually glow. Instead, it’s the packaging that glows. Look for special glow-in-the-dark Halloween packages of Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bars, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kats at your local stores. These glowing candy bars (or rather, candy bars in glowing wrappers) are a seasonal treat. So don’t wait to grab a bag—or a few. You can only get these snack-sized goodies through Halloween.

These spooky sweets are perfect for your kiddo’s Halloween party. And if you’re not inviting your kid’s class over for costume-packed monster bash, handing these little goodies out for trick-or-treat will score you major points as the coolest house on the block!
