Friday Factoid: Halloween Candy Trademarks Include More than Candy Packaging

Halloween candy trademarks are not limited to the words on the candy packaging. Non-traditional candy trademarks registered with the USPTO include the jewel shape of Ring Pop, the candy brick configuration of PEZ, the three-dimensional oval shape of Tic Tacs, Tootsie Roll’s Cylindrical package wrap with twisted ends, the cone shape of Hershey’s Kisses and the pyramid shape of Toblerone.
