The SOUR PATCH KIDS Jack O’Lantern Mobile

  • Los Angeles was selected as the ONE and ONLY city to receive a mischievous appearance from no other than the Kids themselves.
  • On Halloween day, the Kids will be rolling through the streets of Los Angeles in a larger-than-life jack-o’-lantern mobile, shaped like the classic candy bucket!
  • Hopping off their candy carriage, the Kids will personally bring Halloween tricks and treats to Los Angeles families, dropping the deliveries off contact-free while maintaining proper safety measures.
  • “We know so many kids in the U.S. look forward to typical Halloween traditions like dressing up in costumes and collecting a respectable candy stash,” said Danielle Freid, Brand Manager of SOUR PATCH KIDS brand. “We’re hoping to bring the spirit of Halloween to American families with our reverse trick-or-treating experience as a reminder that there are still ways to get creative, have fun and enjoy treats – and tricks – in a safe way this Halloween.”

Contactless Candy Deliveries

  • Because the Jack O’Lantern Mobile won’t be able to hit every family’s house, all fans in Los Angeles can head to Twitter or Instagram between 2-8 pm EST on Halloween, October 31 to enter for a chance to win a special contactless delivery of SOUR PATCH KIDS Halloween package.
    • Deliveries will include a branded trick-or-treat bucket filled with SOUR PATCH KIDS Zombies candy and SOUR PATCH KIDS branded toilet paper, because nothing screams Halloween like TPing your living room and wreaking some safe Halloween havoc indoors.
  • To enter, simply tweet @sourpatchkids #SourThenSweetHalloween #Sweepstakes or head to SOUR PATCH KIDS Instagram to swipe up on the brand’s Instagram Story or click the link-in-bio.
  • That very day, special contactless Halloween deliveries will be made within two hours of winning.
  • You can find more information about #SourThenSweetHalloween, including sweepstakes details and official rules by heading to SOUR PATCH KIDS Twitter and Instagram pages.
