If you're like me, anti-bacterial hand sanitizer is something that is always on-hand and ready to rock. After changing diapers on-the-go, wiping runny noses, shaking hands here and there, or picking the little one up from preschool, I'm whipping out the pocket-sized goodness left and right. What's really cool for all the ghouls this season is that the folks at BATH & BODY WORKS are offering up Halloween Editions of their popular PocketBac Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel. It's perfect for scaring away germs.

I ran across these last weekend while making a trip to Bath & Body Works for some of their pumpkin soap and autumn candles. As far as I can tell, there's seven varieties available, each retailing for $1.50 or mix-and-match 5 for $5. I was able to find six of the PocketBacs, all pictured above.  There's PUMPKIN, VAMPIRE BLOOD (Plum), BREWBERRY (Blackberry, Raspberry, Pear), CANDY CORN, BOO! (Marshmallow), BAT BITE (Apple), and the elusive (not-pictured) GHOUL FRIEND (Apple, Grenadine, Vanilla).

Vampire Blood PocketBacIt's a fun seasonal-spin on something very practical. Right now, I've got the "Vampire Blood" on my keyring, held snug in the PocketBac Holder ($0.50) and ready for contstant use. I dig it, and my 3-year-old does, too!

For more Halloween goodness, stay tuned for more installments of 31 Days of Halloween 2012 right here on The Rock Father!
