Make no mistake...Halloween is my favorite holiday. Perhaps because it's one of the first signs that fall has arrived. Or it could very well possibly be because free candy is involved.
Yeah, more than likely, it's the latter reason. While trick-or-treating, I'm the one mom you hear telling her kids, "Come on...you're not THAT tired. Let's just hit up 20 more houses and then we can go home, okay?!"
Hershey's Halloween candy! Usually I ask the kids before accepting an offer if it's something they're interested in trying. I didn't even bother this time...I mean, it's a no-brainer, yes?
Late last week, a huge box arrived on our doorstep full of candy samples. And let me just say, Hershey's definitely knows how to please a crowd of children!
We received the new Twizzlers Assortment 120 Snack Size Pieces (Mini-Bars Candy Strawberry, Pull n' Peel Candy Wildberry and Pull n' Peel Candy Green Apple), the new Hershey's Candy Assortment with 100 Snack Size Packages (Reese's Pieces, Whoppers Malted Milk Balls, Milk Duds and Jolly Rancher lollipops) AND a Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkin Jumbo Snack Size candy.
I know, right? That's a serious amount of candy right there. To say my children were beyond thrilled is putting it mildly.
Immediately, the kids ripped into the bags and began to devour whatever they could get their little hands on as I read the material included with the package, which mentioned some delicious recipes and craft activities to be found at Celebrate with Hershey's.
I had this wild idea of creating some spooky cupcakes or cookies which I could display in this review....you know, like "Hey, look at all the cool fun things we made with our Halloween candy!"
However, the kids made sure that idea never came to fruition as they gobbled up a sick amount of candy that would even make Augustus Gloop wince in horror.
It's okay, though. Halloween only comes once a year and I fully believe in letting the kids enjoy it as much as they want (provided they manage to eat an apple somewhere in there and brush their teeth twice a day....it can't be ALL sunshine and roses, people).
My personal favorites were the Milk Duds, which I honestly hadn't had since I was a child. Total chocolatey deliciousness!
The kids....well, they liked everything, especially the Jolly Rancher lollipops which came in a variety of fruity flavors.
If you haven't bought your Halloween candy yet OR if you're throwing a fabulous party and you want to make sure all your little guests and/or trick-or-treaters are perfectly happy, make sure to buy Hershey's candy!
You'll be the talk of the town....but in a good way!
What's YOUR favorite Halloween candy?
