Saw at the grocery store today lots of bagged Hallowe'en candy with Star wars graphics and glow in the dark wrappers. Good to see Star Wars back in the ailses!

That's cool, I love Halloween. Hopefully it's good candy like M&Ms, Snickers, Milky Way, etc..

I picked up a bag of milk chocolate M&M's containing several smaller glow-in-the-dark packages with Anakin on it, and a peanut one with Mace, a few weeks ago. So are these for Halloween? I hadn't ever seen them before (or since) but the box containing them didn't say anything about Halloween.

Heck. Kids nowadays get SW candy for Halloween and all I got were those nasty things in the black and orange wrappers.



BTW, WHAT THE HELL WERE THOSE

Great call there Slicker! I forgot all about those things, they were nasty. :yes:

I think those M&Ms with the glow-in-the-dark packaging are for Halloween. Saw 'em last year with Cartoon Network characters on them.

I have been serching for months for The Empire Strikes Back Kudos boxes. I have all of them except for this one because none of my local grocers stock the chocalte chip assortment of Kudos. Anybody else see these and where did you find them? I need my Kudos!

Of all the episodes, I never saw ESB Kudos boxes either. Maybe they didn't make a box for that film.

Bit-O-Honeys were my favorite, you can't find them anywhere except at halloween time. And then they are only the bite size, not the full size bars they used to make.Any way, I saw the candy last week in Stop and Shop and I believe it was M&M's, Milkyways, and Snickers, but not positive.

I see little bags of Bit O' Honey everytime I visit the Dollar Tree store.

Also, don't know if this is a record, but at that same store last week I saw Christmas Items being ready to stock on the shelves.

That's also the one I'm missing (plus a few of the variant cards on the back). I know they made it since it's on the side of all the other boxes, and I saw it on display at CIII with the other ones. I should've stolen one then. :D Who knows though, I still see some Kudos boxes with Shrek 2 on them, so maybe I'll see some next year or so. :rolleyes:

Spotted the Halloween candy today at Wal-Mart. Bags of 'fun size' Twix, Snickers, MilkyWay, 3Musketeers, M&Ms, Starburst, and Skittles all come with Star Wars Episode III graphics.

I also saw a Darth Vader Halloween costume for dogs at WM. Yes, now your favorite canine can go Trick-or-Treating this year as the Dark Lord of the Sith, or maybe Batman and Scooby Doo too, among others...

Holy crud! I collect food packaging so it looks like I better get started again. :D Those lil' trick-or-treaters will likely get a lot of leftover SW food, after I get the package.

I dunno, I don't think parents would let their kids eat candy that had been removed from the packaging. You're just going to have to eat it yourself. At least you've got two whole months to get snackin'

I'll probably just wait until all of the Halloween candy goes on sale in a week to make room for Christmas decorations.:thumbsup:

Actually I think the plural would be classified as Bits-O-Honey and not Bit-O-Honeys.

Oops, I guess that came out wrong. What I meant to say is that I'll keep the outer package that contains the whole bunch of candy, then give them the little individual (but still wrapped up) bars/bags.

I'm also collecting the little bags (one of each), and it got a whole lot more frustrating when I found out that there's multiple answers to "Who is R2-D2's Master?" (Those on the wrappers being Queen Amidala, Anakin, Princess Leia, and Jabba the Hutt, and for all I know, a few others.) I wonder if there are other ones like that?

I've never heard of Crunchy M*Azing. I've seen the other candy listed there though. Whew, 153 different packages. I'd rather put my money into toys than candy wrappers.

Haha, I know what you mean.

Here's some great news (for me, at least) . . .
http://www.rebelscum.com/article.asp?i=94672

The Dark Chocolate M&M's are coming back! Yesssssss!!! I love these so much, and hopefully they will be in the same packages, as I'm missing several of them. I don't know if they'll re-release the other SW M&M's, but I hope so, as I'm missing about three of them.

I finally saw the ESB Kudos boxes today in the most unlikely place - Menards, a home-improvement store. The boxes looked pretty dusty and were right up front in the main aisle. I've probably walked by them several times when I go in there looking for.. uh, ...wood.

Anyway, I noticed that there are different collector cards on the back. The ESB boxes I looked at had alternating cards: R2, 3PO, or Boba Fett (in the carbon freeze chamber).

Holy butts! I might want to purchase them from you, if there are more.

the Kellogg's lightsaber spoons are starting to ship in boxes once again and just in time to promote the dvd.

and what should come out of the "reissue" box i got from WM but yet another red spoon! so much for hoping that all the blues and greens might turn up.

Just when I finished my 15th box of the sickingly sugary Honey Smacks . . .

I found a box of Rice Krispies today that had a lightsaber spoon. At first I thought they had an old case of cereal on the shelves, until I looked at the side of the box and there was an advertisement for the EPIII DVD and the new video game. It had Vader on the front, but yet another RED spoon inside.

Has anybody seen the Large bags of dark M&M's? I recently found many Medium bags, and they were all the same ones from April.

For the different Halloween candy wrappers, it doesn't seem like every kind of candy has every kind of wrapper, and some are exclusive to a few (for instance, "What is Chancellor Palpatine's Secret" is only on Three Musketeers, I think).

His secret is that he wears women's underwear.

I bought a bag of mini caramel Twix today, it had Anakin on the bag. :bored:
The wrapper had the question "Who is R2-D2's master?" and I probably would have answered Luke and got it wrong because the glow-in-the-dark says Princess Leia.

Tricky one there ! :eek:

Mr. JabbaJohnL
10-22-2005, 07:38 PM
There are multiple answers to the R2 question - Queen Amidala, Luke, Princess Leia, Bail Organa, Anakin, and Jabba. There are also three answers for "Who is a Sith Lord," being Chancellor Palpatine, Darth Maul, and Count Dooku.

Finally! After countless cereal boxes with the red spoon-saber a box of Fruit Loops revealed a green spoon-saber to me. Im so excited, i dont know whether to eat the cereal with me or treasure it. Now if only that stinking blue one would pop up in the next box...

I got Froot Loops a few weeks ago at WM and got the elusive green saber spoon. All is now set right with the world. :D

I still have to open all my candy without ruining the wrappers . . . that's gonna be real fun.

1 box of fruit loops from WM today yielded 1 blue spoon!!! this is the first time in like 10+ boxes that i've found anything other than red.

i actually have a blue one already from a trade with lowly bantha cleaner and so if anyone wants to trade a green one for my blue one, lmk.
