Halloween, You're ON!

A friend said that she felt like Halloween already came more than once this week and that she wanted to cancel Halloween.  I can feel her sentiments.  It's been a rough week.  BUT, guess what?  We are going to be celebrating Halloween, rain or shine.  It's because we are going to be watching two of the darlingest darling girls on Halloween.  Their parents (our dear friends) are heading into Manhattan for a C-section that was supposed to take place the day of the hurricane, but got postponed.  So, we'll be with these two sweet girls.  Oh my, I just realized I need to look up Halloween ideas, which I can't ever remember doing...ever in my lifeWeird.  OK, here we go.  I guess some Halloween crafts and activities are in order?!  :)   

And, since we can talk about candy on Halloween, will someone go eat some of this candy for me?  It's the Halloween candy of my dreams (though unfortunately, it contains dairy - which I don't eat.) 

But, it doesn't contain... 

-corn syrup
-partially hydrated oils
-artificial ingredients

-It's lower on the glycemic index (they use significantly less sugar + they use organic blue agave nectar).  
-Their food dyes are made from vegetables.

Unreal.  Yes, it's called Unreal Candy.  It's probably a good thing that I can't eat this.   :)

  1. I am crazy about M&P. You are going to have a blast with them. They do the craziest things and say the funniest things. Have the best Halloween with those two and give the new baby boy a squeeze from me when you see him, I really wish I was there to see new mom and baby myself.

  2. I have heard about these candy bars and I've been dying to try them. Mara, you should add chocolatecoveredkatie.com and ohsheglows.com to your food blogs. They are both vegan bloggers who often post gluten free recipes (or recipes that can be adapted to be gluten free)too. Lately they've both posted lots of candy remakes in a much healthier way. They both post delicious recipes. Have fun with the kiddos!

  3. Thanks so much for helping us out, yet again! You guys are unbelievably kind and generous with your time and service (and car and rides and the list could go on forever!)

  4. I found a few of bars of Unreal Candy at CVS yesterday. I would have thought nothing of them if you hadn't posted about them. I bought the Peanut Butter cup and it was good! I wouldn't doubt that they are in CVS stores elsewhere too.
