While we still may be in the dog days of summer, some folks are already looking forward to the fall season…and Halloween, apparently.
The air gets cooler, and soon, we start to see Halloween candy on store shelves. Retailer Target has already gotten into the Halloween spirit by selling new M&M’s flavor dubbed Creepy Cocoa Crisp, according to PopSugar.
The seasonal candies boast a cripsy cereal-like center surrounded by a layer of dark chocolate and either a red, orange, or brown outer shell. The new Creepy Cocoa Crisp M&M’s were spotted at a few Target stores as early as July 14.
Instagram user @munchiebunchie posted a picture of the candy in hand from a store in Los Angeles.
Another Instagram user @mnmtwinz was able to grab a bag.
The post said, “Many stores won’t have them stocked until the Halloween aisles begin being set up after Back to School season is over. If you’re lucky, you may find a Target employee kind enough to check the back room for you.”

🦇 Spooky season came early! Creepy Cocoa Crisp @mmsChocolate are out now at Target—but many stores won’t have them stocked until the Halloween aisles begin being set up after Back to School season is over. If you’re lucky, you may find a Target employee kind enough to check the backroom for you. Unsure if these will be sold in other stores, but Target is your best bet for now. 055-00-0945 is the DPCI number you want to give an employee. College Point was the location that got them in NYC. They can check multiples stores in your area for these, just ask them to “find elsewhere”. • 🍫 These m&m’s contain a cocoa crisp center with a layer of dark chocolate surrounded by a candy shell. For chocolate lovers such as ourselves, this easily beats many m&m flavors out right now (although peanut butter m&m’s will remain our top favorite). The dark chocolate is rich and a little bitter as dark chocolate should be, and the cocoa crisp is satisfying. This is a definite recommend! Is it too soon for Fall/Halloween? We think not! 😍🍂🎃
The M&M Creepy Cocoa Crisp are totally giving us fall vibes wishing that we can fast forward to October.
As more stores start to roll out the new candy, be sure to keep an eye out the next time you take a trip to your local Target.
