Halloween addiction giveaway...

Okay, I admit it. I have an addiction to something once a year at Halloween time. Luckily, candy corn isn't a year round thing. Well, I know you can get it other times (red, green, white at Christmas), but I only allow this indulgence through October. lol
I buy candy corn and party peanuts and mix them together. Instant Payday candy bars. I just love this stuff!! Dh thinks it is gross because he hates candy corn, but it is yummy!! I am thinking about adding chocolate chips (milk chocolate, not semi sweet) into it and see how it tastes!! Probably like pure Heaven because chocolate makes anything better. lol
Is there anything that you indulge in or enjoy during the Halloween or Fall season??? Leave me a comment about it and I will enter you for a chance to win a little something. Let's see, what would be a good giveaway? Oh I got it!! How about a Halloween goodie bag? I will toss in some ribbon, fabric, plastic charms (skeleton, spiderweb, spider, pumpkin, ghost), stickers, a bright orange slidemount frame and a set of Palette ink cubes (not Halloween colors, but I have two of the same set so I am sharing!). Who knows? Maybe by the time I send out I might find other fun things to add.
Anyone can enter and I will take comments until midnight on Sunday (EST)
Good luck!

This time of year, I love circus peanuts. No one else in my family can stand them. But when my mother was alive, we would buy a bag to share and gross everyone out!

This is the only time of year, when the leaves are rustling around on the ground, that I go out at night to watch the clouds. It has to be a breezy night with dry leaves skittering and rustling at my feet, and the clouds racing across the almost full moon. The scent is like no other time of year, too, it's really fabulous (not a word I use very often).

I love Fall. Halloween is my most favorite holiday! I LOVE all the decorations, the sassy sayings and the chance to 'be someone you aren't'. The crisp air, the crunch of leaves, and the COLOR!

Sue said...

I love the candy corn peanut mix too!! Only I use dry roasted peanuts. Such a quick and easy way to have a great treat!! I've served it at parties too and it's a big hit. The only other indulgence I have at this time of year is the stolen goodies from the grandkid's Trick or Treat bags! LOL Usually something chocolate!

Hi Robin, you brought a big smile on my face. Last year Tina brought some candy corn, i didn't care for it because it's so sweet. We hardly eat such sweat candy here. But i like the giveway you are organising.

Besides the beautiful leaves at this time of year I love the Sweet and Tart candies called "Rockets" the you can only get around Halloween. I get strange looks from hubby but that's okay. Now Candy Corn is another thing all together, nope don't think so, but your goodie bag sounds wonderful Robin.

You know what my standard snack mix is?

Red Twizzlers (cut into bite-size)
M & M's
Popcorn

Mix all together and ENJOY!!!

PS...I am actually not a fan of candy corn...just too sweet for me! More for YOU, right?!?!

Sandi said...

even though we don't celebrate Halloween here in New Zealand ( I wish we did !!) - your Halloween means its spring time here - so I get to look forward to warmer weather and blossoms on the trees.

Robin really DOES rock!
I like the candy pumpkins.

They're pretty much the same as the candy corn, but there's just something about that pumpkin shape!

I always buy up the Halloween Candy I will need for my trick or treaters early and also grab a bag of hershey minis for myself. I just love those candy bars, but I don't keep them in the house except for this time of the year because I will eat them all.

I have to admit to a Halloween addiction. I love Pumpkin Spiced Coffee and Lattes. Had my first of the season today. I searched the coffee shops last year until I found one that sold bottles of the syrup so I could have them right through til Xmas. This year I will buy a couple of bottles.

chocolate eyeballs. they come filled
with more chocolate, or caramel or peanut butter. i got addicted to them while waiting in my eye doctors office- he had a big bowl of them...they are only available at halloween time.

My son likes to put them in the skull eye sockets for a few days.

Hi Robin... I love Taffy Apples especially if they have peanuts on them from Dans Candys were the best...but ones made at home from grannysmith apples caramels and crushed peanuts are yummy too! I love jumping in piles of leaves also...and I am far from being a kid...more like a kid again lol!!!Enjoy your blog teachings etc..and how generous of you for Halloween..Hugs,Ina

I love the different colors of the leaves as they change.

When I'd buy the Halloween candy for trick or treaters I'd get Smarties....'cause I don't like them, so then there wouldn't be anything to tempt me. Now my husband buys the candy and buys mini chocolate bars....soooooo guess who gets her treats first??? LOL
