My Favorite Halloween Goodies and Treats

Almost everyone has made a list of their favorite Halloween goodies and treats! So before the spooky holiday comes and goes, I thought I would put one together :) Here it goes!

Despite it being 80 degrees in New Orleans right now, I still love the aroma of candles this time of year! HaHaHa My favorite candle line is Yankee Candle (and ummm Diptyque). Their candles have so much depth and smell really good. Some scents I love from Yankee Candle: Caramel Pecan Pie, Pumpkin Buttercream, Spiced Pumpkin and Banana Nut Bread. They even made a Whoopie Pie candle! :)

I Love Candy Corn Body Wash by Philosophy
I don't eat candy corn, but I love decorating and bathing in it. LOL This scent by Philosophy smells soooo good! It's definitely a TREAT for yourself while taking a shower. What I like about scents from Philosophy is that their scents do not linger on you after you step out of the shower. It's a really great scent and very befitting for this time of year. Also, if you're a fan of cinnamon frosting or caramel apples, they have a cute Trick or Treat body wash duo.

Caramel Apples by Mrs. Prindables
Speaking of caramel apples! Not all caramel and chocolate covered apples are EQUAL! No, they are NOT! Mrs. Prindables has proven that! You need a really good tasting apple and equally good tasting caramel & chocolate. You guys, these are exquisite! They look good and they taste good. Her apples are loaded with chocolate and caramel. And how CUTE are the thanksgiving turkey themed apples?

It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and  
Witch Hazel of Looney Tunes Cartoon 
Favorite Halloween Cartoon
They show "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" on television EVERY year! And EVERY year, I LOVE it more and more. It's classic! Great for children and anyone young at heart like me. Charlie Brown was kickin' the chevron print before any of us! LOL Another favorite "halloween" character for me was "Witch Hazel" of Looney Tunes. Omg'd she was wacky wild! You can find all of her shenanigans on YouTube.
 The Nightmare Before Christmas - Favorite Halloween Movie
This is simply a masterpiece. The set design, characters, songs and storyline are amazing! When you have those kind of spectacular elements you automatically have a masterpiece.

Wicked and Spiderman - Favorite Halloween "Themed" Play
I love the theater and try to go whenever possible. I'm a big fan of Wicked and love the song Freak Like Me from Spiderman. I think I adore the messages behind each! That it's ok to be different, not to judge a book by it's cover and we all have such amazing talent.
Thriller by Michael Jackson - Favorite Halloween Song
For me, Michael Jackson was a genius. His creativity and imagination was just out of this world. When he remastered and remixed his original Thriller classic, I didn't think it could get any better. Boy was I wrong! I loved it. He's an artist I definitely miss from the music industry.
The Kingdom of Witches - Favorite Halloween Animation
I found and fell in love with this animation several years ago on YouTube. I thought it was so magical and whimsical. The person that put it together, really did a great job. I even love the song! I could watch this over and over.


  1. all of these things are why i LOVE october!!! thanks for sharing! <3

  2. This is a fun post! Candycorn bodywash? That sounds amazing. Wicked is the best play I have ever seen! Have a great weekend :)

  24. Oh so many great things! totally agree on the Nightmare before Christmas and the Yankee candles. I love Yankee candles so much! I've got 4 here sitting next to the laptop I light on rotation :)

  25. I've just realised my utmost ignorance on the Halloween topic. In Italy it's not very popular in fact. I've never tasted candy corn and caramel covered apples, and I've never carved a pumpkin (well, not for an aesthetic purpose at least). However I am excellent at baking cinammon scented apple pie and pumpkin creamy risotto with amaretti.Does it count? Happy Halloween sis. Hugs and hugs Coco

  26. I love all the fun things in this post. I love the smells of autumn, and of course, Wicked.


  27. I think you have covered everything fab here Kim from treats to the best movies!! Hope you have a great weekend:)

  28. Such a fun post! Yankee Candles - yay, at least something we get here in Safrica, the spiced pumpkin sounds divine. Caramel apples sound delish too, are they the same thing as toffee apples?

  29. I would love some caramel apples! Happy Halloween :)

  30. Love this post, Kim! I love the Nightmare Before Christmas a lot!!! and I need to see the Spiderman Play.

  34. I love your blog and these french cookies are so sweet hehe!

  35. Happy Halloween, Kim! This is such a fabulous post full of wonderful things for the season - Halloween is still just catching on in Europe and, although I was never a big Halloween girl back home, it's felt very odd to me to have jumped straight into the Christmas season; I've really been missing pumpkins and goblins and candy corn and costumes. This post was just what I needed. Now if only I could get some of those gems from Yankee candle over here ;)

  36. How wonderful are those candy apples? They look absolutely incredible! And can you believe I've never had a Yankee candle in my life! I need to remedy that asap!

  39. I love all of these too :)) Wouldn't be Halloween without them :)) Charlie Brown, haha :)) I watch that every year too, it's wonderful :)) And Tim Burton movies on Halloween are a must :)) I remember getting caramel apples or candy apples at Halloween, one year at a party, they hung them from the ceiling and we had to put our hands behind our backs and get them with our mouths, hahaha. I came in second, but I popped my jaw out of place, hahahahahah! I needed to get that apple :)) No more of that though, might hurt myself worse ;) Have missed your posts for sure, so lovely to get back to them :))) I hope you are well doll & have a wonderful week :) xx
