99¢ Only Stores, we love you so. Halloween is just around the corner, and you're our go-to spot for kitschy decorations, recyclable costumes and a parade of weird and off-brand candy choices. Buyer need only be aware of just how spooky things get in your aisles. Yes, you have all the classics, but these are the top five most awesome cheap-and-cheerful tricks and treats. LA Weekly tested, kid approved.

With their holiday spirit on dazzling display, our discount foodstuff friends offer up the usual array of Lemon Heads, Tootsie Rolls, Three Musketeers and Blow-Pops, but the funky stuff is what's worth seeking out. The following bags of candy were gathered from four different 99 Cent Only Store locations on the Westside.

Screechers Gum

5. Screechers Mega Sour Gumballs: Gum isn't the most exciting treat, so to sass it up, this candy maker added a super sour center and the extra bonus of neon colored food dye that is guaranteed to turn your mouth a color not found in nature. If your costume this year is "Zombie" look for the blue ones.

Skull and Bones Candy

4. Skull and Bones: If you were the type of kid who enjoyed the hard, vanilla flavored Fun Dip stick as much as the accompanying powdered candy, this is for you. It seems to be the same product as that stick, but smaller and shaped like Skulls and Bones. Comes in individual packets.

Halloween Peeps

3. Halloween Marshmallow Peeps: The sparkling sugar encrusted Marshmallow Peep we know and love from Easter, has put on a costume this October. Dipped in dark chocolate, the bright orange birdies become a triple threat: sweet, chewy and almost too cute to eat. Sold in packs of three.
