Remember when you were little, sitting in the classroom on October 31st, just counting the minutes until the Halloween party or parade would begin? You’d fidget with the string on your cape, or brush your fingers over your princess dress as you worked on your Jack-O-Lantern math page, listening to the clock tick down and mentally planning a trick or treat route for maximum candy retrieval.
Here at Life is Sweet, we remember and celebrate all the joys and wonders of childhood. Let your little hero or hobgoblins know you share their excitement and bring a smile to their faces with some special treats in their lunchbox. Pack one of these sweet surprises for a Halloween lunch that’s a lot more treat than trick!
Just the mere sight of a perfectly round, little cake, with mounds of fluffy frosting will bring a smile to the most solemn of zombies. We have the perfect cupcakes for the holiday. You can stick with autumn flavors like our pumpkin pie cupcake with pumpkin cream cheese frosting or our autumn spice cupcake heaped with brown sugar buttercream. However, we’ve noticed the hands down favorite is the dirt cupcake; a chocolate delight with crumbly “dirt” laced with a chewy, gummy worm!
Neither cake nor cookie, but the perfect marriage of both!The whoopie pie remains a lunchbox-after school-perfect-anytime treat. We’ve taken the whoopie pie to new heights with our perfect pumpkin whoopee pie, wrapped and ready for the lunchbox!
Halloween Themed Candy:
Of course, this is where we shine!
From the traditional- candy corn and mellow crème pumpkins, to the extraordinary-candy eyeballs, Halloween jellies, chocolate dipped Halloween ghosts, candy skulls and “monster” pops! Can’t decide what you’d like best? We have packaged mixes of the best Halloween candy already prepared in single serving sizes. Have a little witch or wizard at your house this year? A box of Bertie Botts, Every Flavor Bean will show your little one how magical you think they are!
Remember when you would put on wax vampire teeth, tear off a bit of a Sugar Daddy or dig through your bounty to find your favorite flavored Tootsie mini-midgees? The candies of yesteryear are still here at Life is Sweet. Share a memory with your child by introducing him to your favorite childhood candy. If you buy some for yourself, we promise not to tell. They really are too tough to resist.
Not only do we have traditional favorites, but just for Halloween we’ve made vanilla fudge with candy corn toppings, chocolate fudge with candy pumpkins or orange sprinkled fudge! This is perfect if you make lunch for a whole bunch of little ghosties. Buy the fudge by weight and put a square in each child’s lunchbox!
Want to keep it healthy, but fun? Buy a mini candy corn or treat pail and make a hearty and healthy wrap to put in there. We also have small plastic pumpkins that you can fill with grapes, cherry tomatoes or other nutritious options. For Halloween, we also have Ty beanie spiders to make lunchtime even more spook-tacular! The happiest of Halloweens aren’t just about the candy. It’s about fun and freedom, shivery anticipation and boundless excitement!
Life is Sweet is here to help you relive your fondest memories and create new ones with your own family. Happy Halloween!
Life is Short…So make it sweet!
