It's Beginning to Look Like Halloween

I wanted to try out a popcorn-ball maker I got at a thrift store, but I realized I needed some clear treat-bags to put them in, which meant I had an excuse to go out and look at Halloween stuff again. I just discovered the Dollar Tree store, and it was filled with all sorts of goodies for a mere buck apiece. I just couldn't pass up this cookie jack-o-lantern on a stick:

The little ghosts light up and change colors. I did not get those at The Dollar Tree.

Here are a couple of marshmallow pops and hard candy skeleton heads on non-edible bodies:

I actually did get around to making popcorn balls, and the shaper worked great.

The monster-hand treat bags were my favorite, but the opening wasn't big enough:


  1. Wow, I was just thinking about what I was going to do for treats this year. Are there any primal treats that will not get your house egged?

  2. How about your egg squares, ha-ha!

    Seriously now...I'm sure the stuff I bought tastes like crap, but I'm not planning to eat it, just look at it!

    The past couple of years I bought bags of Dove dark chocolates; squares wrapped in purple foil, a few bucks for a bag. Not totally primal, but, hey, it's Halloween. Then again, they also sell little snack bags of smoked almonds. I bet the parents would sneak those out of the bags before the kids even see them.

  3. Yeah, then at least it would be easier to clean up than raw eggs! :-)

    Yeah, that is as close as I have been able to come to Primal Halloween treats...nuts and chocolate. You are right, not so bad!
