After eating and writing about new Ghostbusters breakfast cereals, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 16, 2019) yesterday it’s time to write and eat about new Ghostbusters candy. In the past a company or two (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 13, 2015) made Ghostbusters candy, if you lived in the United Kingdom. What about the 327.2 million (as of 2018) US residents? Everyone loves Ghostbusters and candy. I patiently waited (sure) and during Ghostbusters 35th anniversary… Read More

At least six months ago as Halloween was approaching I was busy at times getting ready to go on vacation, between future day and a couple days before Halloween. I knew I wanted to write about (then) Halloween Ghostbusters gift bags. In somewhat of a backlog clean up I’ve thought Ghostbusters gifts bags don’t just have to be for Halloween parties and trick-or-treaters. From the creative and professional Artsy-Fartsy Mama comes the Ghostbusters®… Read More

You may remember in October I wrote a few posts about Ghostbusters confectionaries. (Ecto-Containment Tag) That is if you live in either the UK or a country where they can be shipped to. Since I imagine the cost of shipping candy which will either melt or expire could be very costly for an international company, in North America we either wrote about them or dealt with our emotions. Or both. 😀 One of… Read More

During the 1980s in America we had The Real Ghostbusters Ecto-Plazm Bubble Gum. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, December 12, 2013) Their was also that bubble game flavored toothpaste (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, December 13, 2013) for when kids thought it was awesome to brush their teeth with a bubble game flavor. Sadly the time would come when Ghostbusters gum would be a thing from a bygone era. The sands of time would slowly make… Read More

To add sugar to the American blood stream Kingsways (presumably) is producing Ghostbusters Jelly Pops. What the heck is a jelly pop? :p The language isn’t a barrier. These lolly pops (man, that doesn’t sound very American) come in three choices, a “no ghost” logo, (ooh) Slimer, and something that could hurt you if you don’t have self control, Mr. Stay-Puft. I love how they have an almost home made feel to… Read More

During the Summer some ghostheads were posting that they could buy Stay-Puft marshmallows (I believe they come in a regular size also) at stores. The design (not currently pictured on Ecto-Containment) had Mr. Stay-Puft (probably like above) in front of a American flag. As it should be. :p The problem is, (at least for those of us on the “other side of the pond”) these American marshmallows are in the United Kingdom. Previously two… Read More

Retail barcode, a United Kingdom based retail blog has let ghostheads know (we knew this candy existed before then) that Kingsway, based out of of Loughborough UK makes Ghostbusters popping candy. I’m guessing these are similar to ‘Wonka’ Nerds candy. They come in two flavors, apple and strawberry. If nerd candy (the popping) kind isn’t to your liking Kingsway also makes Ghostbusters chocolate. Yes Please! 😀
