What brand did socially distanced Halloween best: Skittles smelly costume or Reese’s robot door?

Brands are getting inventive to keep trick-or-treaters safe.

Some brands are literally inventing contraptions to keep consumers who want to trick-or-treat during the pandemic safe.

To celebrate the return of Zombie Skittles, the brand created a costume that looks like its very own Zombie Skittles packs and is six-feet wide, encouraging passing humans to keep their distance. It also includes a Zombie Mode button hidden on the wrist that, when activated, releases the smell of rotten zombies to keep people away.

Meanwhile, Reese’s created a robotic Trick-or-Treat Door, which is able to traverse through neighborhoods on its own and dispense Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
