Sure there were the usual miniature candy bars, but that's the same every year. We need new, exciting candy - simple pleasures to take our minds off foreclosure rates and unemployment figures.
At least Nestle made a Butterfinger pumpkin:
I like the design - a bit creepy and a bit friendly all at once. Pretty impressive.
This is new fall packing for the Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins. I'm still bitter they didn't make the mini ones this year. But I still think these are the best peanut butter treats on the market. They still have the old Halloween themed purple packaging from last year (you can see it in last year's post if you really care that much). Maybe this is so they can keep the Reese's pumpkins on the shelf a little longer - making them a fall treat? These could stay out through Thanksgiving.
I think we should be giving thanks for these all year long!
I was intrigued by this because the wrapper says it's solid peanut butter and it's flat as a pancake. I wanted to see what it was:
Reese's next to Russell Stover:
I reviewed these last year, but they are so random and weird, I threw them in again this year:
These are another of my favorites - Hallowscream Caramel Balls from Harry and David:
Oh yes, babies - that is peanut butter wrapped around that caramel center. These are the best EVAH! Totally addictive, totally great. Very peanut buttery and the mix of textures - crunchy candy coating, creamy peanut butter, chewy caramel - genius!!!!! Get thee to a Harry and David and grab some of these - they are sooooo good!!!!!
I don't know about you, but I'm having fun!!! I love Halloween and getting to see all the cute kiddies in their costumes! And what better excuse for a middle aged woman to be stalking the candy aisle?
Hope you're doing some fun things this week! I'm gving my "Motivation by Chocolate" session for the hospital staff at Roanoke-Chowan Hospital. How much fun are we going to have? Join in the fun - take some candy to work, wear a costume, or visit a corn maze or haunted house. Life is short - celebrate!
