Our 5 Favorite Promotional Products of the Week: (Almost) All-Halloween Edition
It's Halloween week! Well, technically, next week is Halloween week, since Halloween falls on a Sunday. But as soon as the calendar turns to November it's nothing but holiday shopping and "All I Want for Christmas Is You," so we have to get in before.
As such, this week's edition of the Fave 5 is (almost) entirely devoted to Halloween-themed promotional products and branded merchandise, including a trio of fun costumes and a spooky shoe/apparel collection. So grab a handful of fun-size candy bars, sit back and enjoy ... if you dare, muahaha!
1. Franzia Glow-in-the-Dark Halloween Costumes
Last year, we told you about Franzia's excellent wine-dispensing backpack. This year, the brand has taken the concept a step further with a pair of glow-in-the-dark Halloween costumes that also dispense wine for good measure. You will not be surprised to learn that both versions (Rich & Buttery and Dark Red Blend) are completely sold out.
2. Dunkin' Coffee and Donuts Costumes
You are what you order. 😏 Whatever that may be, order the costume to go with it at the link 🔗 in our bio.

Dunkin' continued its merchandise dominance with this line of costumes available exclusively at Spirit Halloween. We know what Ben Affleck is going as this year!
3. Kit Kat's Four-Person Costume
Thankfully, this costume splits into four individual parts, so you aren't stuck trying to navigate doorways and steps while trick-or-treating as an enormous full-size Kit Kat bar. When you really want to impress the neighbors, you can combine to form a chocolate-y Voltron of Halloween awesomeness.
4. Vans x Horror Collection

Vans teamed up with Warner Bros. for a collection of shoes and apparel featuring iconic horror movies and also "The Lost Boys." (Sorry, Kiefer Sutherland fans, we had to.) The highlight has to be "The Shining" collection, which includes some, ahem, killer T-shirt designs.

To celebrate its 10-year anniversary, tech news site The Verge hosted a live event and released an accompanying line of merchandise. One of the shirts featured the excellent design seen above, while another has a fun keyboard graphic. As you can see, this one is not Halloween-themed, but if you really wanted to, you could wear the merch and tell everyone you're dressed as a tech news enjoyer, or something.
