FORT LEE, Va. – When the candy-starved “goblins” and “zombies” come calling on Halloween, commissary customers can be ready with plenty of sweets for the little “monsters” bags or food and drink for their parties – all at significant savings.

“If you shop your commissary, the prospect of handing out candy to the neighborhood won’t be so frightening because you’ll be saving at least $25 on every $100,” said Marine Sgt. Maj. Michael R. Saucedo, the Defense Commissary Agency’s senior enlisted advisor to the director. “It’s only scary if you go outside the gate and miss out on these deals.”

As shoppers venture down the aisles of their commissary they’ll see creative Halloween displays with special deals on candy and other food, snack and beverage items. There are plenty of opportunities to save, particularly through the following:

Halloween candy deals. Visit your commissary throughout October to stock up on your favorite Halloween candy brands like Butterfinger, Baby Ruth, 100 Grand, Crunch and Kinder

“Halloween Costume Contest.” Through Nov. 1, eligible commissary customers and their family members can enter DeCA’s Halloween Costume Contest, sponsored by 100 Grand, Chef Boyardee, Kinder, Pirate’s Booty, Baby Ruth, Butterfinger, Nivea, Skinny Pop, Act II, Crunch, Orville Redenbacher and Snack Pack.
