It seems that the Northeast just can’t catch a break on Halloween. Last year it was a blizzard that brought down tree limbs and power lines. This year it’s Hurricane Sandy.
Despite the grim forecasts for my area, we were very fortunate most of the storm’s wrath. We still have power, and (unlike last year) tree limbs appear to be mostly where they should be (on the trees). Of course that means we will have trick-or-treaters tonight and I haven’t had a chance to get to the store, but I do have these fabulous treats that the folks at Surf Sweets sent me to try:
Aren’t those Spooky Spiders just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? But wait – the best part is these sweets are safe for most with food allergies. While the specific ingredients vary for the different products, they are all gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free, and egg-free. They are made with only natural, non-GMO ingredients. They are, of course, full of sugar (natural sugars only), but it’s Halloween and if you can’t have sugar on Halloween, then when can you?
If, like me, you don’t yet have a stash of Halloween candy, this is a great option. It’s also a fabulous choice to have on hand to swap for the stuff the kiddos can’t eat when they get home from trick-or-treating.
What are you handing out to the trick-or-treaters tonight?
