What kid doesn’t love Halloween?
For me, besides being able to stay up late and dress up in a costume, as a kid I was fixated on retrieving as much candy as possible from my trick-or-treat trail. I loved the after trick or treat candy categorization and trading session with my older brother and sister. Things always seemed to work out for everyone since each of us exhibited different candy cravings.
Halloween was always that one night of the year Mom ignored the fact that we’d ingest more than 10x the normal amount of candy eaten in a month. We loved the sweet license we were allowed.
As a parent now raising my kids in an apartment building in the city, the Halloween landscape has completely shifted. Their Halloween experience involves riding elevators to trick or treat on different floors. My children don’t even need to wear coats over their costumes (an argument I had with my mom throughout grade school).
While elements of a child’s Halloween experience may differ, it’s hard to be denied CANDY! Last year we experimented with some fun homemade candy creations, but, it’s also fun selecting pre packaged old school treats to hand out to the fellow trick-or-treaters.
What better way to plan for all those ghosts and goblins who’ll be ringing your doorbell than to offer a Spooktacular Halloween Candy Giveaway courtesy of our friends at Peeps and Company:
One (1) lucky winner will receive a 7 lb. Gift Box ($50 value) which includes two layers PACKED with PEEPS®, HOT TAMALES®, MIKE AND IKE® and GOLDENBERG’S® PEANUT CHEWS®. This assortment would even make Willy Wonka jealous.
