What’s more enticing than a big bowl party popcorn? A spooky Halloween Popcorn Mix that’s sweet and salty!

Halloween Popcorn Mix

It’s officially October, I’m now allowed to post ghoulish treats to my heart’s content without backlash. Eeeeeeee hee hee hee hee hee!

I do get a little excited this time of year. The moment I feel a chill in the air, I’m ready to dig out my Halloween decorations, and put on my tall creepy hat and feathered boa.

I really don’t see why I can’t strut around in my Halloween hat all year long, but Lt. Dan won’t let me.

…Something about special occasions and dignity, I don’t know.

Making Halloween Popcorn Mix

Anyway, this is the month of conspicuous costumes, frightful fun, and dreadfully decorative dishes. We’re already planning all the menacing munchies we’ll serve Halloween night and this popcorn mix is on the list.

This may sound silly, but the thing I like most about Halloween is watching all of the children run around in their costumes and getting to pretend to be whom ever or what ever they want to be! Its great to see all of the creative costumes and the children having so much fun! Thanks for the chance to win!
