Halloweeny is getting close! (Suggestions?)
Sep. 29th, 2008 @ 05:53 am
So Halloween is about a month away, and I need to plan!
I was going to make an order to the import US food store, but my sister is going to the US for a business trip just in time!
What to get? What are the traditional Halloween candies? Candy corn? I'm probably going to ask my sis if she can get me Twizzlers and Jelly Beans too, but I don't really know what's the traditional stuff, or what the US has that we don't? So... what's your favorite candy? Halloween candy or normal candy will do! :3
I'm also thinking of what to do that day, since it falls on a Friday, I should have more free time than other work days, but I don't what to simply watch horror movies all day...
I was thinking of reading one Halloweeny comic (maybe Scary Godmother?), play one Halloweeny game (don't know which yet, but it will have to be a short one!) and then watch a couple horror movies...
In other news, things should be different in October, I want to do a Halloween storyline for Kitchen Kaos, so I'll try to do it every week day because if I don't the storyline will last until Xmas! I have to plan things out to see if I'll have time to make some halloweeny puns and do that super short story for Sweet Tooth too....
I'm also hoping Spain will finally catch on, and we'll get kids in costume asking for candy this year! 8D
Over the childhood years, I've gotten loads of different sweet things from trick-or-treating. Lollypops (which I learned, keep in the freezer and are doubly treats in the summer), miniature chocolate bars and kisses (especially from Hershey's and Clark's, the main brands in Pennsylvania where I grew up), taffy pieces (there are seasonal ones in the shapes of Jack-o-Lanterns), individually wrapped bubblegum, candy cigarette packs, caramels, even the odd cookie or Rice Krispie treat or popcorn ball. Cracker Jack boxes were often included too. Candy-coated apples had already gotten a bad repute by the time I grew up tho'.
I've tried Hersery's chocolate... All I can say European chocolate is MUCH better! ^_^;
I'll see if my sister can get some Laffy Taffy and Cracker Jacks! :3

Baby Ruth is my favorite candy. And also, there's Clark bars, which seem to come out mostly for Halloween anymore.
There are also Halloween Peeps. I prefer to have the little baby chicken shaped Peeps for Easter, but they have them for almost every major national holiday in America. Halloween Peeps are shaped like ghosts or jack-o-lanterns.Edited at 2008-09-29 04:51 am (UTC)
Ooh, I gotta remember about those candy bars! 8D

Baby Ruth is like, far superior to Snickers bars. And they're virtually the same! Except for some reason, Baby Ruth tastes sweeter. Clark bars are also like Butterfinger candies, which are like peanut butter crisps.
Oooh! I like Snickers! :3
You don't want Jelly Beans, you want Jelly Belly's. They are a far superior bean! I don't get to eat candy anymore, but twix, pixie stixs, and gummy worms are always good.
I've never heard of that brand before, I'll see if my sis can find some while she's in the US! :3
if not when, i have monies I will mail some. they are made here in Wisconsin.
I looked up the site and it seems I just got the name wrong, I've been eating Jelly Belly's but calling them jelly beans out of habit... ^_^;
It was the brand I got the last time I was in the US even! XP
But thanks for the offer though! :3

oi... my poor luggage! :PPPPPP
If I go over my allowance you know who's gonna help me pay, right? XDDD XPPP
Candy corn might be traditional, but it's also pretty gross. :) My favorite thing to get on Halloween is those mini Reese's Peanutbutter cups.
It wasn't that bad when I tasted some last year! ^_^;
Are Reese Butter Cups at least orange or pumpkin shaped during this season? XD
