    Class name for this type of candy (candy corn, the pumpkins, Christmas shapes of similar stuff): Mellowcremes. Often contain shellac (from insect cocoons) and carnauba wax. Also generally not vegetarian (gelatin).

    Weird little food, mellowcremes. (I've eaten them, I'm not dissing them.)

    One thing I cannot stand are mellowcreme jelly bean things... not sure the exact word

    I don't think those are technically mellowcremes, are they? Those look marshmallow or creme-ish filled. Mellowcremes are like candy corn or the little flat-bottom pumpkins with thick green stems on top, all solid candy of the same type all the way through, IMU, maybe a shiny coating on the outside.

    Interview with Brach's, whose parent company that owns the "mellowcreme" trademark:

    ^whatever these things are (including candy corn and those pumpkins too) - they are just disgusting imo...regular jelly beans too (not the gourmet ones though...)

    Jelly beans in general are pretty gross... the only thing that makes jelly belly jelly beans good is the unique flavors

    They are called panned eggs - marshmallowish filling with candy coating. Ok when really fresh, nasty as they age - they turn into a lump of sugar.

    I thought the ghost cookie was a person sticking their tongue out and why was that included in a halloween themed package. :)

    LOVE them. I bake them until crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I hate when people underbake them. They taste like childhood to me and I crave them every. so often.

    I knew it was a ghost and still thought it was just a ghost sticking his tongue out until I read your post and realized it wasn't. :D

    That ghost is still sticking his/her tongue out!

    I wonder if there's some psychological reason why I saw a person and you saw the actual ghost (other than I'm weird :) )

    Overly sweet and a dry texture means I shouldn't bother.
