Bath & Body Works Pocketbac Halloween 2011 Chocolate Chew, Sour Candy, & Gum Ball Review

Bath & Body Works has three new, limited edition Halloween Pocketbacs available at the moment for $1.50 each (or 5 for $5) that feature candy-like scents and glow in the dark labels.

What more could a ghoul errr girl want in her makeup bag for Halloween right?


I know more Halloween is to come from our friends at BBW so I’m curious if that means more Pocketbacs as well! Right now they have three scents to choose from each featuring glow in the dark labels.

The scents they have are Chocolate Chew (Tootsie Roll scent), Sour Candy (Watermelon and Cantaloupe Blend), and Gum Ball. These are cute for tucking into your gym bag, drawer, or in to stash in your car for quickie hand clean up. The labels feature ghosts, bats, and a haunted house depending on the scent you choose.

So far, I’m kinda sorta turned off to Sour Candy. It gives me a headache. The combination of the two melons creates a sour-ish, Watermelon Jolly Rancher scent that isn’t too appealing to my nose.

Chocolate Chew is a spot on for a Tootsie Roll and Gum Ball is a traditional chewing gum scent! Out of the three Gum Ball and Chocolate Chew are my favs.

I really want some scents like Candy Corn or Caramel Apple! Hopefully Bath and Body Works has it in the works.

These are available now as part of an early preview of Bath and Body Work’s Halloween 2011 Collection.

Go haul!

Happy Early Halloween!

    Do you know if this is only in the US right now (I’m in Canada). Haven’t been to Bath & Body Works in the last little while so I wouldn’t know what they have. This is bad….I’m just finishing up the mini haul of PocketBacs I got during Xmas sales and now I want the Halloween ones!!! :)

      i haven’t a clue cee…I’m sorry. Wish I knew more about Canada’s release…! maybe call your local shop? ;-D

      Cee, I was at B&BW in NS the other day and saw almost everything Muse has posted here. Didn’t see the chocolate chew pocketbac, but the hand soaps are out. They are of course more expensive, 3 for $5 on bacs and 5 for $20 on most hand washes. They had the fancier hand soap packages too.

    I’d love Bath & Body Works. Wanna try chocolate chew.

    These seriously rock. I love the sour candy one, probably because that’s one of my daily food groups. I really love all the glow-in-the-dark stuff this (upcoming) season!

    OMG. I’m putting this on my wishlist RIGHT NOW. Because the 8 things that are already in there arent enough.


    • 7/29/11 10:22 the Muse:

      ha sarah ;D!

    OH MY GOSH. NEED. I am such a Bath and Body Works fiend, and can never resist the pull of pretty scents when I’m at the mall. I haven’t seen these or any of the new releases at my local BBW though. D:(Screw you, Canadian Bath and Body Works!) Except the lack of these at my BBW is probably a good thing, ’cause knowing me, I’d drink the Chocolate Chew sanitizer.


    • 8/3/11 12:07 the Muse:

      lol mariel if you do drink it lmk if it’s any good ;-D!

    I love these!! I have the Ghoul Friend only, and it’s also so cute.. I wonder if they still produce this series this year,only 3months from now! But I can’t always update my collection since I’m not American nor Canadian. I live in indonesia
