While you were busy, summer gasped its last breath, and Halloween is coming to dance on its grave.
Hauntings, incantations, and spirits are afoot. And once again, you’re called upon to observe the annual Hallow’s Eve ritual of concocting the creepiest combination of candy to keep the goblins (or hungry trick-or-treaters) at bay.
Eye of newt and toe of frog, wool of bat and tongue of dog. Pay heed to the sugary wraiths with treats that are both delicious and disgusting. Horrify onlookers with Cherry Liquid Candy Blood as it coats your teeth and dribbles down your chin.
For the feistier fiends, feast on the gooey gray matter of the dead with handfuls of Jelly Filled Gummy Brains!
And what coven is complete without a “charmed pot” in which to brew your potions? These Candy Cauldrons come with a broom-shaped lollipop for licking and dipping into the buckets of fizzy fruit flavored candy powder. Don’t make the same mistake as last year when you tried to cut corners by just licking dirt off a regular broom.
If your candy spells require less shocking and more traditional candy fare, choose classic Reese’s Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Pumpkins instead. Difficult to eat only one, these happy gourd-shaped candies are always a Halloween handout hit.
But all the magic in the world can’t help if you run out of candy on Halloween night. Don’t be the one house on the block with the dimmed porch light. Arm yourself with a massive array of irresistible Devil’s Night treats.
