Halloween Candy

Cool, Colorful Halloween Lollipops Are Frighteningly Fun and Flavorful!

Just like a book, a person, and countless other things in life, you can’t always judge a candy by its cover. There are plenty of sweets out there that might not win a beauty contest, but are a beautiful treat to the tongue where it counts! But just as we can’t assume less-than-pretty candies won’t be delicious, we also can’t assume that candy with a cute, clever and colorful style is getting by on looks alone. Yes, some candies really do have it all – the eye-catching appeal, the delicious flavor, and in some cases, their own handle! OK, to be fair it’s not really a handle, it’s a stick. But it sure does make eating lollipops easier, and lollipops are what we’re looking at today. Halloween Lollipops, to be exact, since Halloween is fast on its way! :D

Coffin Creepers Halloween Lollipops – As if the clever coffin packaging wasn’t enough to make these a must-have, the adorable little creatures peeking out from the windows captured every heart at Blair the moment these arrived. One of my favorite things about Halloween is all things ‘scary cute’, and these are topping my list this year. As for the flavors, my personal fave is Bone Rattlin’ Blue Raspberry (plus, I can’t resist his oversize innocent smile!), but Vampire Very Cherry and Mummy Wrap Green Apple are scary good as well.


Crazy Bones Lollipops – These tiny little lollis feature a fruity, round lollipop top attached to…a plastic arm or leg! Yes, where you might expect the elbow or knee to be you’ll find candy instead, which means that while eating a Crazy Bones lollipops everyone sees a little hand or little foot peeking out of your mouth! As for the flavors, these come in an assortment of classics: orange, grape and green apple. And while we don’t know for sure, we think they taste better than a real arm or leg by a landslide!

Twister Terror Halloween Lollipops – These cherry-flavored lollipops have a funky, modern feel to them, but also have an element of classic candy charm with their twist design. This update on an old-fashioned candy store staple is re-imagined in the shades of Halloween – orange, black and white – and decked out with 4 awesome Halloween rings per pop before being wrapped and cinched with a black ribbon! These make a memorable treat for friends, family and trick-or-treaters, who always remember the houses that give out the best stuff!

Halloween Candy and Corduroys: Welcome, Fall. We Missed You More Than We Knew!

I’ve had a touch of Fall Fever for weeks now. As usual, it started slow, eyeing up all the decorations in stores, dreaming of changing leaves and the many pumpkin-flavor-infused treats that have just begun popping up at coffee shops. But it progressed beyond casual, fleeting fall thoughts. I have found myself absent-mindedly searching for fall recipes online, with visions of corduroys swishing in my head. I’ve retired all but one pair of flip-flops to the closet, and dusted off boxes with beautiful boots inside! But it wasn’t until this past weekend that Fall Fever got a solid hold over me, and I don’t think it will be letting go.

A cousin celebrated her upcoming marriage with a bridal shower this weekend, and decked the halls in fall-tastic-ness. The venue itself had a warm, autumnal ambiance, with rich woods, exposed beams, and wrought-iron touches here, there and everywhere. And in this naturally ‘fall’ location she draped tables and chairs with burgundies, deep oranges, chocolate browns and mossy greens. Decorations and favors were rustic and fall-themed as well, relying heavily on a pumpkin motif, but not the brightly-colored pumpkins specific to Halloween – fall-y pumpkins! The setting was at once opulent and cozy, luxurious and laid-back…kind of like fall itself. And in the midst of all this marvelousness was something supremely sweet that gave an air of sugary magic to it all – a candy bar.

The candy bar was full of giant glass jars with scoops, much like the counters of the candy stores of yesteryear. There were paper candy bags for storing your chosen treats, and enough fall-friendly and Halloween candy to keep you wired well beyond the holiday weekend! I filled my bag to the brim with Brach’s candy corn, caramel apple pops, Reese’s Pieces and Reese’s Miniatures. A decorative dish of shoestring licorice was left on the table to tie off the bags with a flavorful flourish, but my bag was too full for tying so I simply ate my lace. :D

And when the festivities were over, and all the hugs had been had and well wishes wished, I walked slowly back to my car through the gorgeous grounds with my candy in hand. I took the long way – through the garden, past the pool, down a tree-lined path. I appreciated my surroundings…appreciated the fall in the air…enjoyed my lollipop without rushing a bite. I let summer slip away a little more with each step, and fell gently into fall.
