10/10/2018 11:19

 Happy Halloween!


Halloween is a popular holiday, one that particularly involves sweets! Whether it is Trick or Treating, a Halloween fancy dress party or another spooky occasion, Halloween is definitely a favourite amongst sweets lovers!


Before we list our popular Halloween sweets from Appleton Sweets, let’s take a look at a few big brands and how they got their names:


3 Musketeers


Introduced in 1932, at first, the 3 Musketeers feature chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Later, the vanilla and strawberry disappeared.  


Jolly Ranchers


Bill Harmsen wanted the Jolly Rancher company brand name to sound fun! It’s clear he definitely managed that!




The name Butterfinger came from term”Butterfingers” to describe clumsy people!




Mars introduced Snickers in 1930 by the Mars Family, named after their favourite horse.


Life Savers


Lifesavers look a lot like Polo’s and are named Lifesavers because they look like the lifesaving float.


Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup


Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup was started by Harry Burnett Reese who previously worked for the Hershey Chocolate Company.
