Goblins, witches, and werewolves, oh my! Halloween is just around the corner and department stores are rolling out the major varieties of candy for those eager Trick R’ Treaters. Do you want to be different this year?

It’s time to take a new look at what you give out on October 31st! Your tricks and treats, the usual mini chocolate bar and fruit flavored candies, can be replaced with a locally crafted favorite or something to keep the ghouls’ creative wheels turning. Here are a few ideas to ensure your house is the best on the block:

Instead of handing out the same candy bar as your neighbor, treat those witches and warlocks to The Billy Goat Chip Company’s snack sized 1 1/8 oz bags of chips. With three tasty flavors, Original, Kicker, and Sweet Potato, there’s something for every mummy.

Put your spin on a childhood favorite, Playdoh. Purchase containers of Playdoh but give the container a bit of a make over to resemble a monster. The presentation is fun for the kids and creativity continues with the endless possibilities of Playdoh.

If you are thinking about giving out fruit, this next crafty option is perfect. Frankenstein treats can be your newest trick and treat for Halloween. Put a bit of flair on your fruit cups with just a few essential materials; a fruit cup, googley eyes, a permanent marker, craft pom poms, and feathers.

Halloween is a great time of year to share some of your local favorites with your friends, neighbors, and the bevy trick ‘r treaters sure to be knocking at your door.
