Boy, late August really is the start of the Halloween season anymore. I'm already seeing decorations and displays in the wild, which means it's time for some of my favorite Halloween snacks to start making a return and, hopefully, some new ones to start sneaking their way right into my heart.
Now, I still don't plan on making Halloween a daily thing here on the blog until October 1st, but since there's been a lot of early action, I want to mention a couple of things.
First, a tangential Halloween-ish thing: those Ghostbusters Twinkies.
In addition to the return of Hi-C Ecto Cooler, which I've been drinking for a couple of months now, Hostess released some Twinkie tie-ins.
The first was the "Key Lime Slime" flavor, which... well, I think they missed something by not just calling it "Key S'Lime," the way they called last year's Halloween Twinkies "Orange S'Cream."
(Also, look at Stay-Puft up there, delighting in the gooey remains of his brethren marshmallow.)
So, overall, good but not great. I liked the Key Lime Slime better, even though it wasn't as lime-eriffic as I was hoping it would be. But limited edition candy and snacks and treats are always fun to me. This is the prelude to what I'm hoping is going to be a damn fun Halloween season. It's really getting me out of the late summer doldrums I always end up in, so that in itself is awesome.
Halloween season is off to a fantastic start!
