Packaging Haul: Halloween 2017

Packaging Haul: Halloween 2017

Halloween is upon us, which means that all manner of spooky and sweet packaging is popping out on store shelves. The festive holiday is being reflected in plenty of places outside the candy category this year – check out some of our favorites below!

If you didn’t get it from the illustrative ingredient story on pack, this ale is brewed with REAL pumpkin, brown sugar, allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon – all things fall. The stark contrast of the classic orange on black pops off shelves and could even be seen in the dark… OoOoHhh, that’s spooky! We are grounded again in the ingredients story which feels like picking pumpkins while drinking a warm cinnamon latte – EXCEPT THIS IS 7% ABV! – Bridget     (Source) 2 – Merrick Howl O’ Ween Stew How fun is this Limited Edition Halloween dog food from Merrick?! First, I love that the clever flavor name “Howl O’ Ween Stew” is a play on “doggy language”. I also adore how the iconic Halloween characters, the ghost and Jack-o-lantern wearing a witch hat, are integrated with the ingredient illustrations while the stew is in a spooky cauldron. The spider webs and bat incorporated into the overall composition also add to the Halloween theme. This is a playful SKU for Merrick to add into it’s lineup to enhance their brand personality. – Janna   (Source) 3 – Fanta Teaming up with illustrator Noma Bar, Fanta cans and multi-packs feature four ghoulish characters that...

Packaging Haul 12: October Edition!

Welcome to another round of the Packaging Haul! With Halloween just days away, we’re in the mood to stick to a special, festive theme. Hope you’re stocked up on candy and costumes for this one. We promised there are no tricks here – just treats.   1 – Black O’Lantern by Wasatch Brewery In a sea of orange labels decorated with photos of pumpkin patches meant to evoke warm feelings of falling leaves and a chill in the air, Black O’Lantern, an imperial stout with a hint of pumpkin, is not afraid to be the bad apple (or pumpkin, rather) on shelf.  With a stark black background, menacing jack-o-lantern face and a carved jagged die cut carrier, Black O’Lantern is a brew that unabashedly stands out among the competition. – Kelley 2 – Moonstruck Haunted House Moonstruck Chocolate from Portland has crafted these beautifully crafted Halloween chocolate truffles, each with a unique filling. This limited edition find is sold in a house (or is it a coffin?) shaped structure that you’ll want to hold onto even after the treats are gone. – Abby 3 – Teavana Pumpkin Spice Brulee Fall is about more than Halloween. We all know that Pumpkin Spice ties for being the real star of autumn. Teavana has created a tea that adds a little bit of caramel, butterscotch, and vanilla to make it that much better. With lively illustrated pumpkins on the orange canned packaging, this is the perfect tea to accompany colorful fall days. – Lindsay 4 – Frozen Ghost Vodka Frozen Ghost Vodka is the epitome of spooky packaging. The “ghosted” figure in the background is provocative and has a chilling aura. Thin, sans serif typography is also used in different weights and sizes...
