If you've been entranced by watching wall to wall coverage of Hurricane Sandy, maybe Halloween has snuck up on you.
Wednesday night expect trick-or-treaters on your porch, ringing the doorbell in hopes of getting something delightfully sugary.
A Local 12 News producer spent Monday afternoon, looking for good deals on candy. One of the best places for unusual items was Galerie Innovative Confectionary Gifts in Hebron
Besides pounds and pounds of bulk candy, there were lots of treats with eye appeal.
Star Wars lollipops, scary stackers - a sucker with assorted gummy candies, a Snoopy candy pumpkin and a marshmallow monster sucker were just a few of the unusual temptations.
There were scary skulls filled with candy that let out a ghoulish laugh when you pressed the head to dispense candy.
Other items included gummy eyes with an ice cube tray to freeze and put in drinks and a floatable freezing brain for the punch bowl.
The store front also had an array of Star Wars items including a minature Darth Vader that dispensed candy - a cool alternative to the Pez dispenser.
In all less, than $15 was spent on 12 items. Galerie
is located at 3380 Langley Drive, Hebron not far from the Kroger.
Another store that offer hard to find items is, Minges Candy on Court St. Downtown.
An associate at the store said their most popular items this year Smarties, bullseyes and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Minges also has old fashioned items like marshmallow cones and candy cigarettes.
The one item that can't keep in stock is wax fangs.
We also contacted several chains. Kroger said that all Halloween candy will be 50 percent off starting November 1. Costumes and decorations will also be marked down.
