Nestle Is Selling ‘Hocus Pocus’ Cookie Dough For The Spookiest Snack Time Ever

Hocus Pocus may have come out a whopping 27 years ago in 1993, but it’s as popular as ever in 2020, and with good reason. As far as non-horror Halloween movies go, it’s a total classic that both kids and adults like. It really seems to be having a resurgence lately and I couldn’t be happier, especially since it means we get things like Nestle’s new Hocus Pocus cookie dough.

  1. The flavor is just perfect. It’s hard to imagine what a Hocus Pocus cookie dough would taste like at first thought, but it makes sense that this ready-to-bake dough is Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter flavored with chocolate morsels and candy-coated gems. Sounds pretty magical to me!
  2. Hocus Pocus cookie dough is already in stores! While you would imagine that something like this wouldn’t come out until closer to Halloween, you couldn’t be more wrong. Instagrammer @tamisclock already spotted the product at her local Meijer supermarket, which means it’s out there and ready to be enjoyed!
  3. Sadly, this one can’t be eaten raw. I mean, it can if you’re adventurous – I don’t pay much attention to salmonella warnings on products like this, but then, I’m a rebel. The plus side is that they don’t take long to bake AND each package makes 20 cookies, so you’ll have plenty of them ready for snack time (if you don’t eat them all in one sitting like me, that is).
  4. It would be great if they released this in a variety of flavors. It’s unclear if Nestle‘s Hocus Pocus cookie dough is only available in the one flavor or if there will be more as we get closer to October. Obviously, the packaging is the only thing that’s really tied to the movie, but why not repackage some of their other limited-edition holiday flavors like Salted Caramel Apple and Pumpkin Pie with the Sanderson sisters?
