Halloween Candy

Disclosure: Oriental Trading sent me these candies in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own (and my family's). 

Can you believe it is October already? October is always a bit of a crazy month. Hazel HATES the scary part of Halloween and does not do well in stores that sell Halloween decorations and costumes (which is just about every store). Fall is in the year so there is always some fun getting outside and enjoying God's beautiful fall colors. And there is getting ready for the trick-or-treaters. Our neighborhood tends to get many trick-or-treaters which is a bit funny considering it doesn't have a whole lot of kids in it. One year I remember giving out some of Hazel's treats after we went through six or seven bags of candy. Now we turn out the light when we run out. Needing so much candy however makes me look for good deals on it. Oriental Trading has great prices and quite a variety of candy!! I already bought some candy for trick-or-treats when I saw it at a decent price. I also got some Halloween toys for allergy free treats earlier this year from Oriental Trading. Oriental Trading makes it a one stop shopping for all Halloween treats!! 


We fell in love with these adorable Neon Ghost Ring Lollipops. They come in blue raspberry, green apple and strawberry flavors. Steve liked the green apple. Hazel liked the blue raspberry but did not like the strawberry. I however thought the strawberry is tasty, so I don't know why she didn't like it. 

They come individually wrapped. They are nut-free too. I can see these friendly ghosts being perfect for Halloween parties, classroom prizes or treats. They are so cute!! 


We also got these Hot Pink Hard Candy Sticks. Hazel fell in love with hard candy sticks awhile back. She found them at one of the museums we went to. We are planning on using them for her Beforever doll birthday party. These will be for the girls of course. We made straw ones for the dolls and put them in the mini  candy containers we reviewed recently for doll finds from Oriental Trading


Hazel did try one and LOVED it!! The hot pink ones are strawberry flavored. I like that they are slightly smaller than others I have seen so they are more reasonable for a child to finish!!
