3.5/5 - (2 votes)

Hershey'sHalloween is a wonderful holiday full of ghouls, goblins and everything that goes bump in the night.  Being scared is a lot of fun, which is why Halloween is one of my favorite holidays...even as an adult.  Of course, getting terrific goodies at every turn doesn't hurt either, and The Hershey's Company has always supplied plenty of scrumptious ways to help us celebrate!  :pumpkin:

New treats this Halloween season include:  Fall Rolo Chewy Caramels, Cadbury Screme Eggs and Jolly Rancher Candy Apple Lollipops.  All of your regular Hershey's favorites like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Reese's Pieces, Kit Kat, and Hershey's Miniatures are also donning their holiday duds.  Hershey's has even launched a fabulous Halloween themed website called "Celebrate with Hershey's", which contains plenty of terrific holiday recipes, crafts, decorating ideas and more!  This is a great resource for everything Halloween and there's plenty there to make your mouth water too!  :drool:

Hershey's Halloween Candy

Before you hop from house to house this year, stop by the "Celebrate with Hershey's" website to pick out a few spooktacular recipes to brew in your cauldron on the days leading up to the big night!  Then be sure to follow these tips for a frightfully delightful Halloween for the entire family:

1. Wear comfortable costumes.

Think that hooded cow costume would be adorable on Junior? Make sure he tries it on and successfully wears it several times before Halloween.  Some costumes cause serious wedgie issues while others are insufferably scratchy.

2. Regulate the candy consumption.

Why is the kid with a ghost costume such a messy eater?  Because he's always a-goblin!  :laugh:  If you want to be the fun parent and let your kid engorge on ridiculous quantities of candy, be my guest...and watch your child spin right off the planet.  If that doesn't sound like fun to you, make sure to intervene on how much your child is eating so that they don't slip into sugar overload.

3. Visit all the creepy decorated houses - IF YOU DARE.

The best way to ensure that your three-year-old wakes up with nightmares for a week is to trick or treat neighbors who are advertising a scarier experience.  Boycott "R" rated Halloween props by averting your eyes and skipping those houses if you are trick or treating with young ones.

4. Carry flashlights and wear reflective gear.

Parents, help your kids learn some safety.  According to a study by Safe Kids USA, children are twice as likely to be hit in a car accident on Halloween than on any other night.  Maybe your kids rarely walk outside as it is, so take this opportunity to teach them the right way to cross the street and how to handle approaching cars.  Always carry a flashlight, especially for dark costumes, and consider some reflective gear as well.

5. Never allow the little ones to go out alone.

Never allow your kids to go out at night unaccompanied by a responsible adult or older sibling.  Offer to take your neighbor's kids out for a while so your own children can trick or treat with a friend.  Even letting your small kiddo run next door or across the street at night is a huge hazard--they need to go with someone.
