Are you looking forward to Halloween? If you’re like me, then you’re eagerly waiting for (or already enjoying) the sweets that it brings. Tootsie Rolls. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Hershey’s chocolate bars. Bubble gum. Nerds. Twizzlers. Jolly Ranchers. Skittles. M&Ms. Taffy. Lollipops and suckers.
When I was little, I didn’t like chocolate, unless it was white. No chocolate cake, no chocolate candy, but there was one exception: Oreos, dipped in milk. The white filled center made the chocolate worth it. (The peanut butter filling for the Reese’s cup finally won me over to liking chocolate.)
I’ve grown into a love for the smooth rich candy. Dark chocolate is my favorite, although I like any kind of chocolate. Of course, you may not be looking forward to the Halloween candy as much as you’re eager for the costumes. Wiches, zombies, superheroes, cowboys, pirates… maybe even a video game character or a movie star from the past.
As kids, Lacy and I would dress as Disney Characters (I was Esmerelda while she was Pocahontas), Power Rangers (I was pink, she was yellow), and my personal favorite was our angel costumes. Our mother made our angel costumes made of lace, with little store-bought angel wings and halos that light up. We had to wear 3 layers of coats and clothes to stay warm that autumn, but everyone on our block marveled that kids would choose to dress as angels instead of witches and ghouls.
Of course, then we moved to Germany and learned of St. Martin’s Day. And of course, since Lacy’s birthday falls just a day after Halloween, we quickly got into the habit of celebrating her birthday by going out to eat instead of trick or treating. (Although we did have fun with pumpkins well into our teen years.) November 1, All Saint’s Day, a great day for a birthday, yes?
But whether you’re looking forward to candy or to costumes, I’m sure you’re excited to celebrate Halloween with parties. Whether you’re getting together with friends, or you’re meeting at the office, or you’re throwing your own block party, you should definitely bring a batch of mouth-watering brownies or other sweet treats for your friends.
We’ve ordered a few of our own new products to test them out and see what kind of quality they are. Here’s a video of Lacy showing off a few of our products.
