Ok, everybody knows about the October pumpkin: pie, soup, spiced coffee, but are we forgetting the really fun foods for this time of year?
You may very well ask, “Are there any other foods that should be eaten in October besides pumpkins?”
The answer involves a little thought. The little thought is: “Does any other month contain a Halloween?”
No. October = Halloween.
We can now expand our list of foods both in length and in waist measurement.
Let’s start with my immediate favourite – my Ghost Cookie!!! Tender gingerbread under all that sweet icing, just like when that witch tried to eat those kids…
Other foods like Count Chocula breakfast (or ooooh, after midnight) cereal. Put milk in it and you get chocolate milk. Not so scary :d
Frankenberry cereal. Not my favourite, but inventive.
Then there’s that movie inspiration, RATatouille. I happen to love nightshade foods like eggplant and tomatoes so this would be a treat for me. My sister gets nightmares from it, though. Strange.
Ice cream (I scream) has to be on the list especially if it’s Ben & Jerry’s Devil Food Chocolate or Dastardly Mash (chocolate bits, nuts and raisins). Lots of people like Chunky Monkey, but the name always gave me “The Willies”, whatever those are…
Oh, there’s a fun B&J’s website made just for Halloween, if you’re really into the cold crypt thing. Find it at http://www.benjerry.com/halloween .
All this talk of edibles has given me the munchies. Uh oh, my ghost cookie is looking particularly unhappy about that!
