Candy-Free Treat Ideas for Halloween
X1up Girl | October 28 2014
Halloween is all about candy, and handing out anything else seems like more of a trick than a treat. But there are tons of reasons to skip the candy, especially if the trick or treaters have a medical condition or food allergy that prevents them from enjoying the treats you're handing out. But[...]

Trick Or Treat? Hershey’s Candy Corn and Caramel Apple Twizzlers Reviewed!
X1up Girl | October 20 2014
I had it on pretty good authority that Hershey's Candy Corn is the work of the devil, and that it's more horrible than Andrea AND Lori from TWD combined.
Something that bad... of course I had to try it.
I have no idea what these are supposed to be. I guess white chocolate bars with ground[...]
Count Chocula Treats Review
Mistress Sara | October 16 2014
Halloween brings lots of seasonal ‘spooky’ treats, and General Mills is no stranger to this with their monster cereals. While at my local Meijer I spotted General Mills Count Chocula on an endcap, and noticed a much smaller box on the display. A closer look revealed the box was Count Chocula[...]

arkangel318 | September 17 2014
This brand of chocolate has been available at my local Walgreen’s for some time. I’ve always been curious about them, because of the…unique…flavors, but the price has always put me off. Then one day…
FINALLY…they went on clearance! Still a bit pricey, but not too expensive for science!
