These Treats for Halloween Take Cues from a Petri Dish

As its name suggests, these treats for Halloween from Dylan's Candy Bar take inspiration from a petri dish. Rather than going with the traditional ghouls, ghosts and goblins that are typically found branding confections for the end of October, the 'Petri-Fied' set of miniature jawbrakers and gummy candy frogs attempts to gross out consumers from an entirely different angle—the biology-inspired candy kit encourages the candied yellow and green frog to be "dissected," which will appeal to kids who don't shy away from things that make others squeamish.

The novel candy set is also packaged in a rounded container like the petri dish, which follows the theme of the creepy Halloween candy, as well as offers a way to offer just a small taste of the snack in a portion-controlled format.
