Kraft scares up 'Candy Corn Oreos' for Halloween


Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Here's a scary snack for trick-or-treaters: Candy Corn Oreos.

Kraft Foods Inc. says it's introducing its famous wafer cookie in a candy corn flavor ahead of the Halloween season. The cookies will be available exclusively at Target Corp. stores and cost $3.59 for a package.

Oreo is one of Kraft's biggest global snack brands. The Northfield, Ill., company adapts the black-and-white cookie for different markets — such as fruity flavors in China — and produces limited-edition versions. This year, for example, it sold Birthday Cake Oreos in celebration of the brand's 100th anniversary.
