Last year, Hershey’s really went in on Halloween by releasing a bunch of new candy. Luckily, the brand is gracing us with those bites once again, which means that the Vampire Kisses are back for a treat you can really sink your teeth into.

In case you didn’t get the chance to try them in 2020, Hershey’s Kisses Vampire Chocolates consist of milk chocolate that is stuffed with strawberry-flavored crème. When you bite into a piece, you’ll be met with the oozing red filling that makes it look like you just claimed another victim. Hey, it’s all in good Halloween fun!

Start scouting out your local candy aisle now, because these limited-edition Kisses are beginning to pop up on shelves. The 9-ounce bags have a suggest retail price of $3.99. Since each piece is individually wrapped, the candy makes a fun trick-or-treating option — especially with the festive purple and red foil.

You won’t need to break out the garlic for this kind of vampire, because it comes in the form of chocolate. Hershey’s has introduced Vampire Kisses, which join Kit Kat Witch’s Brew and Reese’s Franken-Cup Peanut Butter Cups, for Halloween 2020.

The Count Dracula-approved chocolate consists of Hershey’s milk chocolate and strawberry crème in the middle. Best Products got to try the Vampire Kisses ahead of the launch, and we can confirm that there are ridiculously delicious. The strawberry crème is bright red, so it’ll make you feel like you have your own set of fangs.

The new Vampire Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates will hit store shelves nationwide in July, a Hershey’s rep confirmed to Best Products. Who says we can’t start celebrating the spooky season early? As with its other Halloween candy, it’ll only be around for a limited time. The 9.8-ounce bags, with a suggested retail price of $3.79, are perfect for indulging throughout the season or tossing in trick-or-treaters’ bags.

While you’re scoping out the Vampire Kisses, you might also come across the returning Hershey’s Monster Milk Chocolate Kisses as well. While there isn’t anything standout about the flavor, the creepy candies are wrapped in green goblin, blue ogre, and purple dragon foil. Instead of the strip of paper coming out of the top, called the plume, saying “Kisses,” these have special phrases, like “Creepy!,” “Yikes!,” and “Eek!” They’ll make a monster-worthy addition to your candy dish.

Leave it to Hershey’s to make even the tiniest of chocolates Halloween-ready. Excuse us while we go hunt them down!
