Halloween Series: Spooky Halloween Candy

Today os the first day in a week-long series on's my favorite time of the year. It goes back to my childhood, of course. I have many fond memories of dressing up and going trick-or-treating. Years later, when I worked in the confectionery industry, Halloween became even more exciting to me. I was always fascinated when my company started making all the chocolate ghosts and witches, candy corn and special chocolate Pixies (turtles). I felt like a kid again as I would drool over the foil-wrapped chocolate novelties. Even the Halloween cookies at the grocery store got me excited. Even to this day, I usually buy myself some Halloween candy. I usually buy the good stuff- I never buy mass produced Halloween snobbery is from years of working in the confectionery industry. We never used any fillers or waxes in our chocolate. Those were good old I miss them. So just to make you drool, here are a few Halloween favorites:

above: Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Do you have your Halloween Candy yet???

Hehe, reminds me of the chewy eyeballs I had at a friend's house last Halloween. They smelled like feet but tasted like strawberry. Ugh.
