I miss trick-or-treating. It’s not the candy that I miss, per se, but the entire experience. Dressing up quickly after school. Waiting anxiously for everyone else. The parents were always running late. Come oooon, Mom and Dad! We need to get going! It didn’t occur to me that there was probably nobody home to hand out candy anyway. When everyone was finally dressed and ready, we went out and stayed out for hours, . Yes, hours. We walked miles to gather pounds and pounds of candy. We even stopped for a hydration break. (Thank you neighbor for handing out juice boxes. Much appreciated.) When my sister and I got home Halloween night, we would sort our candy and trade strategically. It didn’t matter in the end, though. I had a terrible sweet tooth and stole her candy after I ate through mine. I think she knew. If she didn’t, she definitely knows now! Sorry.
What is your favorite Halloween treat? I love dark chocolate. I have found that chocolate Larabars, made with chocolate, nuts and dried fruit, can really hit the spot. I also love Kind Bars. Try any flavor with chocolate or cinnamon for a seasonal treat. Find them here at Magic Potion Juice Bar!
Happy Halloween! I hope it’s a sweet one. You are never too old to celebrate.
