7 New Foods To Try At Universal Halloween Horror Nights

Every year, thousands make their way to Universal Studio's Halloween Horror Nights for a spooky fun time. While you're probably trying to squeeze in every maze and ride you can, you usually make enough time to grab a bite or drink in between.

If you are making the trek to Hollywood to check out all the Stranger Things, Ghostbusters and Us mazes, here's your guide to the new delicious goodies that accompany those attractions:

Kotton Kandy Cocoon Doughnut

This raspberry-filled doughnut is a sugar rush that excites the senses. Topped with pink vanilla frosting, pink cotton candy, and a straw to suck out the jelly with, the Killer Klowns-inspired treat will surely indulge your sweet tooth.

__________

Zuul's Egg Sandwich

There is no Dana, only Zuul's Egg sandwich. Named after the Ghostbusters demon, this Eggslut-like sandwich is a bit of an out of body experience, and arguably one of the tastiest things at the park. Within the brioche bun is a fried egg, turkey sausage patty and cheddar cheese topped with a chipotle aioli and caramelized onions.

__________

Slimer's Dog

Another one that's inspired by Ghostbusters, the Slimer Dog is a quarter pound hot dog with "green slime," that's actually just green colored nacho cheese, and roasted peppers.

__________

Eleven's Waffle Sundae

OK, so a lot of these items are diabetes waiting to happen, but I'll be damned if I'm not gonna scarf down a Stranger Things-themed sundae. Within the cup is a serving of vanilla ice cream with strawberry sauce, jelly beans, Reese's Pieces, chocolate chips, and of course, mini waffles. Would it even be an "Eleven" sundae without waffles? Nope.

__________

Firehouse Hot Chicken Bites

If you complained about all the sweets on this list, here's something savory. The breaded Nashville chicken bites lie on a bed of coleslaw and are topped with pickles, with a piece of toast as its sitting vessel. The firehouse, of course, is known to house the Ghostbusters, and can now house your tastebuds. If you're lucky, this thing will be hot enough to make you forget how scared you are at the park.

Mind Flayer's Milkshake

The "Mind Flayer" shadow monster is a bit of a dick, but this milkshake makes up for all the trouble it caused in Stranger Things. The chocolate milkshake is topped with strawberry sauce, chocolate whipped cream, crumbled Oreos, a black waffle cone and black licorice that kind of looks like the Mind Flayer's tentacles.

__________

Spooky Cocktails

Universal released a trio of cocktails, and if you just scared yourself shitless at a maze and need a drink, they're the perfect remedy. The "Ecto Slime," "Frankenstein Skull" and "Zombie Butterfly" cocktails all come in an awesome transparent skull cup sthat light up, and the drinks themselves change color. The Ecto Slime consists of Crystal Head Vodka, blue Curacao, citrus sour, passionfruit and orange juice. The Frankenstein consists of Three Olives vodka, butterfly pea tea, apple syrup, pineapple and lemon juice. The Zombie Butterfly also has Three Olives and butterfly pea tea, but has citrus sour, blueberry syrup and lemon juice.
