GOOSEBUMPS.... COMING UP
This is the week for a little bit of the scary and the unexplainable and when the weather turns cold (well, in some areas, anyway). Come join the LadyKillers as we explore the topic of "goosebumps."
FAVE HALLOWEEN TREATZ
Is there anyone here who can claim they've NEVER hunted through the Halloween candy grub (in bowl or bag), searching for their favorite treat?
We asked the LadyKillers to 'fess up to their favorite Halloween sweets. Here are their answers:
- Peggy: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
- Ann: SweeTarts (or, the way back when version: Pixy Stix).
- Camille: I start buying Halloween candy on Labor Day weekend, and test it all. I’m still in the trial period for my favorite. So many varieties, so little time. :)
- Terry: If I could get my hands on a caramel apple, I’d like that. Is there such a thing as Halloween ice cream?
- Priscilla: Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel, or whatever it was called in the last millenium. We didn't have the bite sized or specially packaged candies. Oh, I just dated myself.... Oh, I am historical!!!
- Staci: Sixlets for me!
- Carole: Those peanut butter cups in the shape of a pumpkin.
- Sharan: I'm in the snickers camp. I'd go through my haul and pull
those out first.
- Hannah: Peanut butter cups, frozen Snickers... I'm a sucker for anything "fun size" or mini so I can convince myself that eating 25 is not as bad as having a King sized candy.
