A steaming cup of apple cider in a white mug with a blue swirl painted on it. There are two whole apples behind the mug.If you ask me, Halloween has some of the most delicious foods associated with it! Here are a few of my favourite Halloween treats.

Apple cider (non-alcoholic).  I specified the non-alcoholic, kid-friendly kind because apparently this beverage is only ever alcoholic in some countries! This was something I didn’t know until just a few years ago. It’s Halloween-ish to me because that’s the time of year it finally becomes available again here in Ontario.

Chocolate Cupcakes. My family didn’t actually celebrate Halloween for much of my childhood. Instead, my mom would make us homemade treats. I think I vaguely remember chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting being something she made at this time of the year. At any rate, I’ve always adored them and associated them with this holiday.

Skittles. I’ve never met a Skittles flavour I disliked.

Starburst. Yellow starburst aren’t my favourite, but I’ll eat them first and save the delicious red and pink ones for last.

A few dozen candy corn sitting on a white surface Red Licorice. My dad often had a bag of these in his desk. One never went rooting around in his personal effects, but he’d often share a few if you asked politely.

Candy Corn. I love candy corn, candy pumpkin, and all associated candy produce. The fact that I can only find them for a few weeks of the year only makes me anticipate them more. (We shall not discuss the Easter versions of these treats as I prefer to pretend they don’t exist).

Apples and Carrots. This post makes it sound like I eat much more sugar than I actually do. I enjoy my treats, but I also love snacking on stuff like apples and carrots as soon as they come into season. They’re especially good together!

Mint Tea. I drink tea regularly when the weather is brisk. There’s something about mint tea in particular that reminds me of Halloween, possibly because this is the time of year when I really start drinking a lot of it.

Enjoy Life Ricemilk Crunch Bars. This is a niche product that most of you probably haven’t heard of, so I linked to it earlier in this sentence. Due to my milk allergy, I can’t eat 99% of the chocolate that’s sold for Halloween. I’m grateful for vegan and dairy-free companies that sell safe chocolate for me. These bars have a satisfying crunch to them that I really like.
