More Penn State-Themed Candy Bars To Hunt For This Halloween

Happy Halloween, folks!

As you head out for trick or treating tonight, you’ll probably be on the hunt for some of your favorite candies. However, why not think bigger this year and hunt for some Penn State-themed candy?

Two years ago, we brainstormed some Penn State-themed treats, so we thought we’d give it another shot this year with even more ideas.


The Whoop and Bloop are a staple of life at Penn State. This candy pays tribute to the former with our own spin on the often disregarded and underrated Halloween candy, Whoppers.


KitKats are so last year. This year, we’re keeping our eyes peeled for KalenKobes, which pays tribute to Kalen and Kobe King, Penn State football twin brother duo. That’s why they’re only sold in king sizes.

Dirty Sprite Bar

Anyone ever been to Champs, drank a Dirty Sprite, and wished that you could eat it in candy form? This is the candy bar for you.


Penn State’s president, Neeli Bendapudi, is featured on the packaging of this delicious snack, our own spin on the famous “Nerds” candy.

Dig Newtons

While it isn’t really a candy, Dig Newtons are certainly a favorite among Penn State’s women’s volleyball team, so keep your eyes out for them this Halloween.

Tootsie Rhoades

Finally, in honor of the new coach of Penn State’s men’s basketball, we present… Tootsie Rhoades. Maybe if you knock on the door of the Bryce Jordan Center, it’ll have a bucket of these.
