13 Food Mascot Costumes You Can Wear This Halloween
Can't decide on a Halloween costume? Why not go as one of your favorite (or least favorite) food mascots? Straddling the line between lovable and "weirder and weirder the more you think about it," the world of food mascots includes everything from a bunny burglar, to a very intense-looking fast food king, to the real-life relatives of restaurant chain founders.
If you don't have time to cook up your own duds, don't worry: Food & Wine has rounded up all the food mascot costumes you can buy. Unfortunately, there is somehow no good Mr. Peanut costume out there, but otherwise, you should be covered.
Toucan Sam Costume
Follow your nose, wherever it goes, towards this costume recreation of the bird that's graced Fruit Loops boxes since 1963.

Lucky Charms Leprechaun Costume
They'll always be after your Lucky Charms once you don the jacket, pants, scarf, shirt, hat, and shoe covers included here.

Trix Rabbit Child Costume
While they shouldn't steal any candy, kids can look like the Trix-thieving Trix rabbit in this child-sized outfit.
Trix Rabbit Child Costume, $25 on amazon.com
Dress up as one of the few food mascots to be based on an actual human, Wendy's founder Dave Thomas' daughter Wendy, with this signature red wig (though you'll need the clothing to go full Wendy).

Kool-Aid Guy Costume
Oh yeah—for whatever reason, this may not be labeled quite right (he's the Kool-Aid Man), but this costume certainly looks the part.
Kool-Aid Guy Costume, $31 on amazon.com
Colonel Sanders Suit
Another one of those rare human and real person-based mascots, though the actual Colonel Sanders was probably stranger than his fictionalized counterpart.
Colonel Sanders Suit, $54 on amazon.com
Chester Cheetah Costume
It is indeed dangerously cheesy to put this incredibly well-made Chester Cheetah costume on, but like Cheetos themselves, you may find the risk worth it.
Chester Cheetah Costume, $350 on amazon.com
Mr. Owl Costume
How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? Now you can fail to answer just like the animated Mr. Owl!

While you may still be reeling from the recent revelation of how the Hamburger Helper Hand's skeleton is shaped, yours should fit in this one just fine.

Tony the Tiger Costume
This costume is more than good... it's a pretty accurate representation of Frosted Flakes mascot Tony the Tiger!

Become The King. The Burger King. Take the mask and crown. Rule over burgers forever. Or for Halloween at least.

Adult Yellow Clown Costume
