NASA scientists may have created some awesome Halloween pumpkins here on Earth, but they’ve got nothing on the tricks and treats going on on the International Space Station

To celebrate the spookiest day of the year, the ISS crew shared a video of astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti expertly catching a piece of floating candy out of the air. 

The candy looks like it might be a lemon Spree, but the space station has yet to confirm. We can’t wait for more pics showing the astronauts literally bouncing off the walls with their sugar high.
