Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights Food & Merch 2022

The Halloween season is here and many are flocking to the awarded Best Halloween Event: Halloween Horror Nights! Throughout the years, the event has become widely known for its changing menu and new merchandise. We visited this year to give you the scoop on the best merch and food served with a side of screams.

Scary Bites

The food this year was honestly the best I’ve tried from a Horror Nights event in several years. Their signature drinks are the “Electric Death” with gin, and “Ghoul Juice” with rum. Both were very tasty and able to be served with or without a souvenir cup. Our favorite drink of the night however was the “Save Your Tears” from The Weekend stall, containing bourbon and peach brandy with boba inside.

As far as food goes, The Haunted Horseshoe Burger was a delicious offering that packed a punch. This burger is served on Texas Toast with french fries, melted cheese, and bacon on top.

I’m always a big fan of Twisted Tater, a potato spiraled and fried on a stick, and this year they served them in a variety of different ways. You could get your Twisted Tater with a hotdog, cheese, flaming hot cheeto dust, as well as a ghost pepper! My favorite foods of the night though were the fried Oreos dipped in confetti cake batter, and the fried PB & J with hot honey. Take my word for it, they were delicious!

We heard so much about the Pizza Skulls as well, and were told that they were one of the best offerings this year. They are served with cheese, pepperoni, and sauce stuffed inside a baked dough shaped like a skull. Unfortunately, we were too full at the end of the night to try it!

Spooky Merchandise

Halloween Horror Nights has sold your traditional theme park merchandise for years. T-shirts, magnets, shot glasses, and light up headwear are some of the pieces you might find. However, in recent years, the merchandise has become much more vast now including bags, posters, Christmas ornaments, and souvenir cups! It’s so exciting to see all of the new items they come up with every year and the themes that they will accentuate with their merch.

You can expect to see a spread of t-shirts with themes from different houses on them every year, and this year was no exception. Some of the popular shirts were themed after the “Halloween” house, and “The Weekend” house based off of the singer.

Every year they also have shirts with a mashup of all of the houses. This year it includes those mentioned before, as well as Blumhouse and Universal Monsters. 

A popular theme this year was Lil Boo, an adorable little pumpkin. He gained popularity over the years by frequent attendees to the Horror Nights event. Lil Boo is now his own little celebrity. He has a range of ornaments, shirts, bags, cups, and shot glasses available to purchase with his face on them!


The food and merch was top tier this year at Halloween Horror Nights. I honestly want to go back just for some more Twisted Taters and fried Oreos! Whenever you visit, get ready to indulge in some delicious treats, and maybe a cup of Boos.

Doctor Phillips and Universal

Universal Orlando is located near Dr. Phillips in Central Florida. This is a very popular location in Orlando, and some even believe it was the inspiration behind John Green’s “Paper Towns”! This is a great area in Orlando to live in if you love going out, and want a close proximity to theme parks, downtown, and UCF. Sand Lake and Turkey Lake Road are filled with restaurants in this area, like Mochinut and Kabooki Sushi. Curious what homes are available in Dr. Phillips?
