Elmer's Chee Wees Snacks For Halloween Trick-Or-Treater's

Not Sponsored: About a month ago ... I was trying to decide, what type of candy to buy the Trick-or-Treaters, that would be stopping by my house on Halloween night. I went to the store and faced sticker shock! The price for a bag of chocolate candy was ABSOLUTELY OUTRAGEOUS! I said to myself, there has to be a better way. So I thought, maybe if I bought sacks of variety bags of chips (ex Lays), I would make out better economically. But could I do better than that? I DID! 

I ended up looking up local companies, here in New Orleans. The very first site I visited, was Elmer's Chee Wees. As soon as I went to their website, I saw the cutest mouse dressed in his finest with a Halloween pumpkin at his foot. The bag was orange, said Happy Halloween, had a New Orleans lamp post with a full moon and array of bats on the bag. I kept saying WOW! WOW! How Halloween can you get? Elmer's offered a case, at an amazing price and even offered a BOGO (Buy One, Get One) option plus FREE SHIPPING. I placed my order and my work was done for Halloween. The kids will be tickled (ahem) ORANGE.

Not only was everything packaged and shipped perfectly, they also gave me a little lagniappe (something extra). Elmer's makes a variety of snacks! They included a bag of their caramel popcorn, green onion Chee Wees, BBQ Chee Wees and Cheese Popcorn in my order. What an excellent business idea! They now have a customer for LIFE, because I will be placing an order for snacks, just for my household. I supported a local business. Local employees. A small business. AND, I got a treat for my trick-or-treater's that stands out from the usual candy.

The art work on the bag was ALSO done by local artists here in New Orleans (so your purchase also helps them and gives them recognition). Josh Porea @chvck_chvnge and Kelli Mascaro at Shear Grafix @sheargrafix

So, I share my story in the hopes that you will do the same. Find out if the local companies in your area, do anything for Halloween (or any other holiday) and buy from them. You will get a product much more meaningful, while helping a local business.
