KANSAS CITY — Spooky sweets are haunting menus in anticipation of Halloween.
Sonic is serving new Trick or Treat Blasts, featuring a combination of three candy mix-ins. The Vanilla Trick or Treat Blast features vanilla ice cream blended with M&M’s Minis, Snickers bar pieces and Oreo cookie pieces, while the Chocolate Trick or Treat Blast features the same blended with chocolate syrup.
“The crunch of three different chocolate candy and cookie pieces combined with Sonic’s smooth and creamy, 100% real ice cream work in perfect harmony to create a craveable and irresistible dessert,” said Scott Uehlein, vice president of product innovation and development for Sonic. “By packing in bites of Halloween favorites in each spoonful, we’ve captured the thrill of digging into a trick-or-treat haul in one frozen treat, served Sonic style.”
Krispy Kreme has created a new batch of Halloween-themed donuts called Scary Sweet Monster Doughnuts.
The Frank Monster Doughnut is filled with original Kreme, dipped in green icing and decorated like a monster with icing, sprinkles and pretzel piece bolts.
The Drake Monster Doughnut features raspberry filling and is dipped in light purple icing then decorated like a monster with icing and sugar piece eyes.
The Wolfie Monster Doughnut is an original glazed donut dipped in chocolate icing and decorated like a werewolf with chocolate Kreme, a sugar piece face and cinnamon sugar cereal ears.
“This Halloween, we're trading scary for sweet and helping fans create new ways to safely enjoy the season,” said Dave Skena, chief marketing officer for Krispy Kreme. “Instead of asking for sweet treats, let’s give them away to all the neighbors, family and friends we appreciate so much. It’s not a normal Halloween, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make it a sweet one.”
Carvel is introducing the Hocus Pocus Shake, featuring vanilla soft serve mixed with Oreo cookie pieces topped with whipped cream and black, orange, purple and green Halloween sprinkles. The shake is served in a 31 Nights of Halloween X Hocus Pocus cup to celebrate Freeform’s “31 Nights of Halloween” movie lineup and the Disney film Hocus Pocus.
“Carvel fans look forward to our holiday specialty shakes and we are thrilled to bring even more Halloween excitement to our shops this year with our Freeform collaboration,” said Nicolle DuBose, chief marketing officer at Carvel. “The 31 Nights of Halloween Hocus Pocus shake is not only a delicious treat but the limited-edition cup only makes it sweeter for guests to enjoy as they watch their favorite Halloween movies.”
