Especially since this season bids farewell to their beloved Hawkins town characters, there is a sense of bittersweet anticipation in the air. Even as the Upside Down world expands with spin-offs and comics, fans are still dismayed by the upcoming season’s delays. To make up for this, the creators have rewarded fans’ patience with a delectable treat.

A special place that was introduced back in season 3 will now take center stage in the series’ newly revived products. After a series of collectibles and clothing lines, the show has now treated fans to a literal treat!

Although the ice cream was only initially available at select locations like Seattle’s Stranger Things Experience, Walmart’s takeover is going to change that. Now fans can simply pop into their nearest store to grab their favorite Scoops Ahoy flavor. Moreover, the sweet treat’s launch is perfectly timed considering the nearing Halloween night.
