Tricks or treats? Well, if your answer is a resounding “Treats!” with emphasis on the ‘s’, then you most likely have your eyes trained to catch all the new Halloween sweets and other eats on your feed—still fresh and/or seasonal goodies, sporting a spooky look or autumnal colors. In this list, we will fill up your jack-o-lantern bucket with all the Halloween-special sweets, treats, and other eats.
Here’s a guide to new Halloween-special desserts and drinks:
Bizu is not one to shy away from launching seasonal items—especially when it comes to the spookiest and sweetest time of the year.

KFC came out with an unexpected Halloween special dessert on Friday the 13th (October 13). Meet the Muddy Bloody Kreamball, a vanilla soft serve served with a drizzle of berry sauce that looks like blood, plus a sprinkle of MILO, and is served in a plastic ball container. This dessert will be available on the menu until November 28 in all KFC Kreamery Stores.
If IKEA has Halloween decor inside their stores, they also have Halloween items on the menu too. Two of their Halloween specials are the Ninja Hotdog (P35) which sports an all-black bun and the hotdog that gets its color from charcoal, and then for the sweets, there’s the Honeydew Ice Cream (P10) which has a black wafer cone topped with a bright, almost-neon green ice cream.

There are two doughnut designs available: the Scooby Dooby Doo doughnut which has an image of the famous Great Dane, and then there’s the Mystery Machine doughnut which is designed after the gang’s iconic vehicle, a mid-1960s Chevrolet G-Body panel van or a Dodge A10.
Daily by Bo’s
Halloween or autumn drinks aren’t all about using pumpkin spice—at Daily by Bo’s Coffee, two of their Halloween dranks use cinnamon instead. There’s the Wicked Cinnamon Mocha Shake which is a mocha drink blended with cinnamon, and the Cinnamon Chocolate Spooy Shake which is a cinnamon-y chocolate shake. Completing the line of the Halloween collection is the Choco-berry Mystic Shake which is a chocolate-strawberry shake that looks berry Halloween-y.
