Sure, Halloween is coming up and it can be very SCARY. What’s even more scary, though, is how much companies can go crazy with product tie-ins and how bad they can really get.
Twihards will be taking another bite of the forbidden fruit when the next installation of the Twilight saga, New Moon, will come out next month (November 20). With this, of course, comes the inevitable – product tie-ins you can only dream about (or have nightmares about).
At UniversityChic.com, we’ve rounded up our Worst Twilight Product Tie-in list:

My only question is…does it sparkle when exposed to sunlight?
Twilight Birth Control Pill

NECCO’s Sparkly Twilight Conversation Hearts
Once upon a time, candy hearts were an adorable Valentine’s Day staple, which managed to annoy a lot of people on that wonderful hallmark holiday. The New England Confectionery Co. took “I love you” and raised it a sparkly “Bite Me.”
Twilight “Cullen Bra”
The Twilight Bra has a Cullen crest on it. Now that’s definitely one way to scare a guy…
