R.M. Palmer Co.
R.M. Palmer gets a bit crazy with craniums with its lineup of humorously labeled Insane Brains. Each brain is a creamy fudge candy in a chocolatey shell.

Pack types include a six-ounce bag with a suggested retail price of $1.29; a 12-ounce bag with a suggested retail price of $2.39; and a 24-pound bulk package with a suggested retail price of $3.49.
Stackable Pumpkin And More
Madelaine's six-inch-high Stackable Pumpkin features three keepsake boxes filled with eight ounces of crispy milk chocolate balls wrapped in delightful holiday foil. Once the chocolate is consumed, the pumpkin tower can be used to stash "trick-or-treat" booty or to decorate any fall feast. Also available from Madelaine for Halloween are Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkins. These are creamy milk chocolate, semi-solid balls filled with smooth peanut butter and wrapped in four different Jack-o-Lantern face pumpkin foils. They are packed in three clear acetate tubs with 40 pieces in each tub, three tubs per case.
