You could easily offer the same ol’, same ol’ treats to this year’s trick-or-treaters. Or, if you’re like us, you could be looking to jazz up your offerings and hand out something slightly more interesting than the predictable Tootsie Roll (did you know the pseudo-chocolately treat is actually New York-born?).
To have some fun of our own, we chose 10 Halloween treats from our friends at Mouth, a Brooklyn-based online center for indie food products from near and far. You can peruse their shop for just about any occasion, but since the holiday is upon us, here are our Edible staff picks for Halloween:
Eileen Duffy: Watermelon Candies with Salt and Chilis by Papabubble
I pick the watermelon treats with salt and chilis because I love salt on melon and the chili to spice it up. I’ll be the only one on my block with them.
Vicky Wasik: Milk Chocolate Covered Animal Crackers by Tumbador Chocolate
I’m going to go with the chocolate-covered animal crackers because animal crackers are my favorite snack of all time and I’ve yet to have them covered in chocolate!
Brian Halweil: Apple Pie Chocolate Bar by Sweeteeth
I will go with the apple pie candy bar because I am more of a cookie/brownie person than a toffee/caramel person, and having “pie” as an ingredient in anything makes my mouth water.
