Trick or Treat Tidbits: Fun Facts About Halloween Candy

I'll admit it, if there is a bowl of Halloween candy lying around the office I can't control myself! That's why I always leave the bags I buy for trick-or-treaters unopened until the first ghost or princess or pirate shows up on my doorstep! It's just too tempting to have all that candy lying around. By the end of the night, if I have extra candy each trick-or-treater is getting handful, otherwise I'm eating way more candy than I need to. In honor of Halloween, and the candy comas our kids are about to suffer from, here are a few fun facts about Halloween candy.

Can You Handle the Heat?

We at know that for some people, spice is the only thing that matters when it comes to eating! The hotter the better, they say (which is why we created our The Spice Is Right Popcorn Tin), but every tongue has its limits. How much heat can you really handle before you crack? Think you could make it through these spicy snacks?

Pumpkin Spice As Far As the Eye Can See!

The other day I was in the supermarket and one of the end-aisle displays was nothing but pumpkin spice flavored items. Pumpkin spice peanut butter (DELICIOUS!), Jell-o, bread and pancake mix, coffee (whole bean and K-cups), pie filling, and more. And I can't lie, I purchased more than a few of those items on pure impulse. It's Fall and that means everything should taste like pumpkin!
