HalloWEEN This Giveaway! [UPDATED]

It’s October!

Yay!!

I love October. It’s the beginning of the best time of year!

Halloween (candy)!

Thanksgiving (food)!

Christmas (presents)!

Alright, alright…there’s also costumes, gratitude, and family, but today is all about the swag.

Then there’s the new year, followed by my birthday, then my anniversary, Easter, the Hubster’s birthday, Mother’s Day, and finishing up with the kiddo’s birthday, and Father’s Day!

October is like the gateway to all of my favorite days. Seriously. There’s something to celebrate every month from now through June (and I get presents and/or cake on practically all of them).

I mean, all other awesome days for presents and food aside, October is practically my birthday. It’s like October gets here and then BAM! It’s February. Really, I should just start celebrating my birthday now. It’s pretty much like it’s here anyway.

So, since it’s my birthday and all, who wants some presents?

Obviously, presents make me happy. Clearly.

I’m seriously not a greedy gift person, though. I LOVE giving gifts. And I’m pretty much the best gifter I know. So yeah.

I wanted to celebrate my birthday October today by giving away a bunch of Halloween swag. And by giving it all away early enough that you can actually enjoy it all for Halloween.

For starters, I figured I’d give you some fun stuff to bake with, seeing as how that’s what I like to do around here. Makes sense, huh?

First up: some cute cookie cutters. There’s a witch’s head, a pumpkin, a crescent moon, a cat, a ghostie, and a bat. Pretty much all the shapes you need for some awesome Halloween cookies.

Then I got you some cute cupcake duds. There’s standard sized cupcake liners, mini cupcake liners, and some seriously adorable cat and spider picks. Like, seriously adorable. The spiders have little, furry, pipe cleaner legs, and the cats have pipe cleaner tails.

What would cookies and cupcakes be without sprinkles? Delicious? Yes. Cute? Of course. But they’ll be more delicious and even cuter with sprinkles, so I got you some. With spiders in it. Cause cute, candy, or cute candy spiders are the only acceptable spiders in the world.

I couldn’t resist adding some completely adorable little Halloween bowls, so I got three…cause I had to get one of each design. I can’t decide if the skeletons or the spiders are my favorite. I’m pretty sure it’s the skeletons, but those are some cute spiders.

Everyone needs some prettyyyy Halloween jewels, i.e. super awesome jack – o – lantern sunglasses (which are UV 400, so I’m protecting you…cause I rock), scary silly vampire lips and teeth (which is actually a sucker…that glows in the dark…of course), and a cute (tasty) pumpkin ring.

There’s a box of boogers. For obvious reasons.

Candy Corn, ’cause…duh (and I got you the great, big bag, because a small bag of candy corn is practically pointless).

And Hocus Pocus, because it’s pretty much my favorite non-scary Halloween movie ever (tied with It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and The Nightmare Before Christmas, probably). And because Bette Midler rocks. Especially because Bette Midler rocks.

So.

Wanna win this great birthday Halloween stash?

It’s easy. Just leave your answers to the following questions in the comment section below, before 7pm EST on Thursday, October 6th, 2011:

What is your favorite Halloween candy? What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?

There is no wrong answer, and I can’t wait to see what your favorites are!

The winner will be chosen randomly at www.random.org and announced Friday, October 7, 2011.

I will contact the winner, so don’t forget to add your email in the email section!

    Favorite costume: That’s a toss up between Pippi Longstocking (though I hate when people ask me if I’m dressed up as Wendy from the hamburger chain) or Mary Poppins

    Favorite Halloween movie: Bettlejuice

  2. says

    ok i love this giveaway; esp since i live in spain and can’t find any of this stuff here!! my fav candy is candy corn. fav costume is anything disney-love dressing my boys in those costumes!! and ive never thought about a fav halloween movie. but hocus pocus looks cute!!

  3. Lauren says

    Favorite candy: candy corn or bite-size candy bars. Favorite costume: pumpkin! Favorite Halloween movie: Hocus Pocus; I’ve watched it every Halloween since I can remember!

  4. Tasha N. says

    My favorite candy would have to be the little fun size twix, they are just the perfect size! Favorite costumes are pretty much anything scary/cool. And I love to watch Hocus Pocus too!

  5. says

    One year I was a life sized barbie. My best friend’s mom worked for Mattel and had the dress that the model wears when doing Barbie events and she let me wear it! It was very cool. I felt very pretty. Plus, I always dress ‘pretty, pretty princess’-like during Halloween…I love dressing up! :-) Oh, and I love anything chocolate…especially reese’s (especially the big pumpkin ones) and m&m’s during halloween! :-) Thank you for the giveaway!

  6. Linden says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? Favorite candy is chocolate. Of course. :)

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? I always try to go to Rocky Horror Picture Show, so I dress up for that – corset, red feather boa, fishnets…I may or may not wear a skirt depending on how cold out it is (ND – probably going to wear a skirt, WA – maybe not).

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? Oh man…it’s a three way tie. RHPS (of course), Hocus Pocus (LOVE this one!), and Practical Magic (mostly because of Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman, but also because the guys are cute, the story is fun – the book was darker – and I LOVE Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest).

    PS – I also LOVE your blog. I want to try so many of these recipes…I’m going to try to find those cute little baking pans and make the pumpkin bread this weekend! :)

  7. says

    Favorite Halloween Candy: butterfingers, its the only time of year I’ll let myself eat them!
    Favorite Halloween Movie: hands down Hocus Pocus! I’m pretty sure the year it came out on video I watched it every day from September until Thanksgiving.

  8. Laura P says

    I definitely get addicted to Candy Corn this time of year. EVERY time.
    I was Tinkerbell one year, best costume ever. I even won the costume contest at the party I was at!
    Favorite movie, gotta go with Beetlejuice!!

  9. Mego! says

    So excited! Here it goes:

    My favorite Halloween candy would have to be bottle caps. This is the only time of year I can find them in the little individual pouches. I live in a small town :)
    Costume: I got a StarFleet uniform from the Deep Space Nine Star Trek series two years ago, and I doubt i’ll be anything else ever again :)
    Movie: Hello? Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin! I’ve probably watched it every October since I was born, I have an older brother and sister, so it’s kinda a family tradition!!! :)

    Happy Halloween and Good Luck to everyone!!! :)

  10. Shawnda says

    My FAVORITE candy for Halloween was those little Bit ‘O Honey candies, now I am hooked on anything with peanut butter in it. My favorite costume is a the littlest Frankenstein costume I have ever seen on my second born for his first Halloween at 3 months old, and we cannot make it through a Halloween season without watching “Halloween Town”.

  11. Nola Murphy says

    Here in Australia, Halloween is only just starting to gain popularity, but we tend to have kids dances and skate nights etc. My favourite costume was ‘Dead Bride’.. I still had my wedding bouquet that hadn’t dried properly so it got an outing every year and both my girls looked wonderful !! I LOVE any peanut butter lollies (candy) but especially Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. I don’t watch ‘scarey’ movies but love a good scarey comedy and Hocus Pocus fits the bill.

  12. says

    Yay Halloween swag!!

    1) my favorite candy as a kid were tootsie rolls…I would trade almost any other candy for them. Now, though, I love me some.candy corn.

    2) favorite costume: Lucille Ball….it allowed me to wear all my favorite things at once: polka dots, high heels, pearls and fake eyelashes!!

    3) I also watch Hocus Pocus every Halloween!!! Amuck, Amuck Amuck!!

  13. Tricia says

    My favorite candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins….I may or may not have one sitting on my desk as I write this. My favorite costume was when my mom made me into a dalmatian for my fifth grade Halloween parade. Sweat suit, felt dots, and pigtails for ears…homemade costumes are the best. Favorite movie? Anything scary, I love a good horror movie marathon, I’m an adrenaline junkie :) Thanks!

  14. Nicole says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?

    My favourite candy would have to be the Reese’s cups! :) My favourite Halloween costume is Robin! and my favourite Halloween movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas!!! :D

  15. says

    My favorite Halloween candy? Milky ways. Not sure why either -there’s something about them that reminds me of Halloween. I’m going as a 1960s housewife this year for Halloween and I’m so excited to do so. I always watch Nightmare Before Christmas around this time – i feel like it can be a christmas OR a halloween movie

  16. Megan says

    1. My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn! Me and my brother would eat so many at a time that our mouths would start to feel weird. :)

    2. Little Red Riding Hood was my favorite costume. Swirly dress + cape = awesome!

    3. Ghostbusters II. It’s the best!

  17. says

    Favorite Halloween Candy: Caramel Apple Suckers

    Favorite Halloween Costume: One year a few friends and I were Magic 8 Balls. We all had different saying on the back of our shirts.

    Favorite Halloween movie: Hocus Pocus!!!!!

  18. Angela Martin says

    Haloween is my most favorite holiday!

    1. My favorite candy is swedish fish and peanut butter cups!

    2. favorite costume, has to be my Wonder Woman costume. I loved that thing. My Grandma made it for me. I thought I was so cool!

    I watch Hocus Pocus every October! “Ohhhh Booooook!”

  19. Venus Leidy says

    Love your site!

    1. Favorite candy is hands down a Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkin. Love them!

    2. Favorite costume would have to be the year I went as Velma from Scooby Doo. My dorky glasses were finally put to good use.

    3. Favorite movie is definitely Halloween! Nothing like the original to get your blood pumping for a night out in the cool fall air for Trick-or-Treating.

  20. MJ says

    1. My favorite candy would probably have to be sweet tarts..I know kind of random but I love those little tiny packages of sweet tart goodness.

    2. Favorite costume would be the time a bunch of us dressed up as different circus performers!

    3. I watch Lady in White and the Nightmare Before Christmas every year. Can’t get through October without them.

  21. Jana Murphy says

    Pop Rocks! My favorite costume was a couple of years ago when I dressed up as a voodoo doll, it was great. And my all-time favorite Halloween movie is Nightmare Before Christmas.

  22. Liz says

    We don’t really have specific Halloween candy as such over here which is LAME so I bake my own! Last years biggest success was Mummy cupcakes!
    I was a dead Prom Queen last year which completely rocked but my cousin was Sally from NBXmas and she looked UHmazing so that has to be my fave costume!
    Each year I watch The Exorcist at some point with my Dad, father daughter tradition! I watch Hocus Pocus and Monster House when I babysit and Trick R Treat is my new fave, a MUST on Halloween night!

  23. says

    Thanks for this giveaway! My favorite costume was Minnie Mouse, some how I have just this attachment with Minnie. When it comes to candy I do not have anything favorite because I love them all.

  24. Tim Fennell says

    Fave halloween candy: Pencils or pennies. Mmmmm… delicious and full of fiber and minerals respectively! (ok, in the old days, Snickers… nowadays, Kit-Kat or Reese’s PB Cups (full-sized… I don’t have all day to unwrap the 40 mini ones I would devour).

    Favorite Costume: Anything that required my wearing one of those cheap, thin, plastic masks that were held on by a single string-thin rubber band and had a “mouth hole” that would invariably slice your lips and/or tongue. Let’s not forget the crappy vinyl body covering that basically had to announce to any onlooker exactly what the hell you were supposed to be by saying “Superman” or “I’m supposed to be some kind of Monster”. Terrible quality, but priceless nostalgia.

    Favorite movie: For laughs: Halloween III (one of the worst sequels ever, but I dare you not to sing, “One more day till Halloween, Halloween, Halloween… One more day till Halloween… SIL-VER SHAMROCK”
    For realsies: The Shining because it rules and all other classic horror films must bow in its presence.

    I’m crazy long answer guy. I’ve got a long answer for an arm… NOW GIMME SOME CANDY AND OTHER BAKING PARAPHERNALIA!

    Thanks for always having an awesome blog!

  25. says

    My favorite Halloween candy is by far, Candy Corn! My favorite Halloween costume I ever wore, was when I was about 6, my Grandma made me an indian costume. My favorite Halloween movie is definetely Hocus Pocus, I wait for it to come on every year at this time on Disney Channel.! LOL

  26. Pam Ziemer says

    Reese’s Pumpkins, favorite costume: my family and I dressed as the adams family-Uncle Fester, Morticia, Wednesday, Cousin IT, and pugsley(for the baby) awesome.
    halloween movie…I don’t like scary movies, I don’t really have one!

  27. Amanda Mac says

    Cool goodies!

    Let’s see… favorite candy? Probably the Reese’s cups (I always enjoy the holiday shapes). Favorite costume? If I was skinny enough to pull it off, I’d go as a sexy stormtrooper. Favorite movie? Hmmm… the Exorcist, or maybe Sleepy Hollow (the Johnny Depp version).

  28. Kara says

    Favorite Costume: I’d have to go with Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I always begged my Mom to let me buy the Disney store costumes, however, growing up in New Hampshire, a turtleneck or sweatshirt under my dress was a must, and those did not go well under the shimmery Disney costumes! When I was 5, my mom spent days sewing the most elaborate, yellow miniature ball gown with a built in turtleneck so that I could have my dream princess dress!
    Favorite Candy: Almond Joy – I always loved they gooey coconut! Kit Kats are a close second!
    Favorite Movie: Hocus Pocus! As a 25 year old, I still check the Disney listings every October to find when it is on TV!! And if I ever get a cat, he will be named Thackery Binx!

  29. says

    Halloween’s not really big here in Norway yet, although we’re getting there! I love fall and Halloween, and my favourite Halloween-stuff must be:

    Candy: Wine gum (spider/skull/ghost-shaped, of course) or anything chocolate. If I can mention something more “adult”: Pumpkin pie.

    Costume: I once sat in the middle of the night in our summer cabin and hand-stitched a simple white dress, which I painted with oil and water colours to make it look like I’d been stabbed in the chest, and then had wandered ghoul-like through the woods so the bottom of the dress was dirty and wet … My favourite costume, although in hindsight I think making the dress was a more halloweeny experience than actually wearing it!

    Favourite movie: Anything scary. The Shining is a Halloween classic.

    M:)

  30. Rita says

    Favourite Halloween candy – anything that doesn’t move too fast! I love lollies!
    Favourite costume – we don’t really get into Halloween traditionally over here but for the last few years my sister throws a Halloween party – this year I’m going to make an owl costume… Does that count? And my little girls will be little rapunzels… Like every other little girl in the world :)
    And I really do live under a rock as I have never seen Hocus Pocus!

  31. Leah says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? Kit Kats always make me happy.
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? This year I want to be a kitchen witch. But the classic witch costume is always a win!
    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? Practical Magic! (Lost Boys is awesome too!)

  32. buttons pham says

    My favorite halloween candy is candy corn. I can eat a bag of it!! my favorite movie to watch around halloween is Practical Magic. My favorite costume was my daughter’s vampire bride costume that she made up!

  33. says

    Let’s see, my fav Halloween candy would have to be Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. My brother and I used to fight over them every year when we were kids. My favorite costume – when I was around 10 my Mom made me a Wonder Woman costume. It was awesome! And my favorite movie – hmmm – I love all scary movies, but the original Halloween is still the best. The music still freaks me out!

  34. Kim says

    My favorite Halloween candy is the Reeses Pumpkins – the chocolate to PB ratio is a lot better than the standard cup. My favorite costume was when I was a flight attendant from Snakes on a Plane – just bought regular clothes and spent money on only one thing…rubber snakes. I made bites all over me and it was fun!
    One of my favorite movies (I’m a child of the ’90s..) is Double, Double, Toil and Trouble with the Olsen Twins..yep…seriously embarrassing…

  35. Linde M says

    I have to say that reeses peanut butter cups are my favorite candy in general, but when they’re in the pumpkin shapes it makes it even better. <3 As for Halloween costume, I loved my Mad Hatter costume last year. It's too difficult to pick my favorite Halloween movie, I suppose I'll go with the Harry Potter series, even though I love to watch them almost every season, especially the Fall and Winter.

  36. Nikki R says

    Halloween candy: dark chocolate milky ways (I want to try to make my own, someday…)
    Halloween costume: Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland (coincidentally my costume for this year!)
    Halloween movie: HOCUS POCUS!!! I’m so glad you posted that! Wonderful memories from my childhood and still love it as an adult. :)

  37. Emily says

    Candy corn is by far the best! You can bake with it, or just snag one out of the bowl as you walk by ;) I was the Wicked Witch of the West last year, and I had such a fun time with it! I’m a teacher and my student’s didn’t recognize me! And being the NCIS geek I am, I have to go with Hocus Pocus! Hard to believe that Thackery Binx grew up to be Agent McGee!

  38. Tara says

    Fave Halloween candy are the little sweet tart like bones in a coffin. I remember dressing up as a Funskin one year (okay, I thought it was called Funskin…but Google is not confirming this…going to have to look at pictures – kinda a bear-like creature fromt he 80’s) and having a surprise party in the basement that my mom & aunt threw for us before trick-or-treating. As for a Halloween movie??? Hmmm. Can’t really think of one! Maybe Goonies!

  39. Sheri C. says

    My favorite candy is probably Reeses peanut butter cups or Kit Kat Bars. They are both fantastic and get eaten first.

    My favorite costume, of ones that I personally have worn, is probably Emily the Corpse Bride costume. It wasn’t super accurate to the movie, but it’s creepy without being gross and is fun to bring out. Also I have fun painting my face blue.

    I have a whole stack of movies that I watch around Hallowen (it’s my favorite holiday). For kiddie type movies I watch Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride. For more adult times I watch Rocky Horror Picture show and Zombieland. Sweeney Todd and the Legend of Sleepy Hallows have both made appearances, as well.

    I’m also going to add that last Halloween Costume Quest came out which is an adorable game about trick or treating and costumes that give children super powers to save the world from candy and children-stealing monsters. I will be playing it again this year because..well..it’s HALLOWEEN!

  40. Heidi says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? I always love Reese’s and marshmallow pumpkins.
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? Last year I dresses as a mermaid, but the statement was the fancy, tall, and flowing wig I got. A good wig can make a whole costume!
    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie? I love Hocus Pocus! I’ve been watching it every year since I was pretty young!

  41. Cinthia (Cindi) Fuja says

    Favorite Halloween candy? CHOCOLATE candy corn (Brown bottom, not yellow)
    Favorite Halloween costume? Kelly Osborne (My husband was Ozzie)
    Favorite Halloween movie? It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

  42. Heather says

    Favorite candy – bite-sized candy bars. My favorite costume ever was the year I was Princess Leia as a kid and favorite Halloween movie is It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown – I got a rock!

  43. Dori says

    I *love* this time of year! Love it! I’m right there with you–it’s pretty much a party around here until the end of June. My daughter was actually due on Halloween. I think a little bit of my husband will always be sad because she arrived a week early. :)

    Favorite candy? Old school candy corn! Costume? I dressed up as Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas one year…but my daughter’s cat costume a couple of years ago was far, far too precious! Movie? Nightmare Before Christmas. Hands down. Though, not really sure I can count it as a halloween movie since we watch it year round!

  44. says

    Favorite Halloween Candy? The candy corn pumpkins. Favorite Costume? My super awesome hippie costume with all old authentic 70’s garb that I found at thrift shop (biggest diameter bell bottoms ever). Movie? Charlie Brown. :) And favorite holiday? That would definitely be Halloween.

  45. Jey says

    Favorite Halloween candy: Toss up between caramel apple lollipops and midnight milkyways (for some reason they only sell the mini midnight milkyways during Halloween season)
    Favorite Costume: I love dressing up as Waldo from Where’s Waldo (mostly because I have the perfect red striped shirt and cap.)
    Favorite Halloween movie: I know it’s not quite halloween, but it has all the qualities… I love Practical Magic. :) It’s such a fun movie and I always watch it during Halloween season.

  46. Emily D. says

    It has taken all of my willpower not to buy every cute Halloween baking accessory this past week or so, and I named my cat Binx after Hocus Pocus so this is right up my alley!

    1. I always loved the non-chocolate tootsie rolls! As much as I love the originals, when I was little I only ever got the vanilla and fruit flavored ones around Halloween.
    2.When I was about four I was going to be Belle for Halloween but I wore the costume so much throughout October I ended up ripping it and had to be Cinderella instead. So Belle was my favorite costume I never actually got to use for Halloween.
    3. Hocus Pocus is my favorite Halloween-specific movie! I’ve been watching it every year since I can remember.

  47. Michelle says

    Favorite Halloween Candy: I like the caramel apple lollipops. I don’t know what they are called, but I like the little peanut butter candies that come wrapped in black and orange paper.
    Favorite Costume: I was a mermaid a couple of years ago. It was so pretty!
    Favorite Halloween Movie: Believe it or not, Hocus Pocus is my favorite Halloween movie! I always watch it around this time of year.

  48. Sharon says

    Favorite Halloween candy – popcorn balls!
    Favorite Halloween costume – Witch in Training (complete with first aid accessories like an arm sling…)
    Favorite Halloween movie – Hocus Pocus – because yes Bette Midler rocks!

  49. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy?
    I’m all about the mini-Reeses. Its the best size of them all and they aren’t too easy to find when it’s not Halloween time.

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume?
    My favorite ever was the year I dressed up as a Yellow Power Ranger [the old school ones], I think I wore that costume like 4 years in a row.

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?
    Definitely Hocus Pocus. I’m terrible with Horror movies, I’m just incapable of processing them and Hocus Pocus is nice and mild and still themed (although to be honest that movie scared the beejeezes outta me when I was little.)

  50. Darlean says

    My favorite halloween candy treat has been and always will be smarties!!! My favorite costume is definatley any Johnny Depp Character they are so fun to create -> but my fav fav would be his Mad Hatter outfit!! and my favorite halloween movie… is -> It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown… (I can’t abandon Charlie on Halloween lol!) but BEETLEJUICE! is a great second!

  51. Jenny Buehler says

    Candy = Reese’s!!
    Costume = My costume last year was my favorite! I dressed up as Buzz Lightyear!! I know this is kind of a 12 year old boy’s costume idea, but I had so much fun with it!
    Movie = Of Course this is Hocus Pocus! I watch it before every Halloween :) “Dead man’s toe! Dead man’s toe!” hahaha

  52. KariAnnM says

    Oh I LOVE Halloween, and this time of year is definitely my favorite! My favorite halloween candy are those mary jane peanut butter kisses. They come in the orange and black wrappers and have peanut butter in the middle. LOVE those!! I only eat them out of my kids stash bags…shhh! :) My favorite costume I had as a kid was when I went as a “flapper”….that costume was so much fun! I had the wig and all. However, this year my daughters are BOTH dressing as 80’s punk stars, and they look totally rad!! :) So they are now tied with my flapper! Oh, and I love Hocus Pocus! Such a cute movie. We try to catch it every year when it’s on! And of course, Charlie Brown’s Great Pumpkin! Thank you for the giveaway!

  53. says

    Favourite Halloween Candy: I love really retro sweets like Space Hoppers, or novelty candy like vampire fangs. Yummm.
    Favourite costume: Last year I went as a twister board, which was pretty cool :D
    Favourite Haloween Movie: Casper! It’s a toal tradition that we watch it every year!

  54. Breanne says

    Favorite candy is candy corns, favorite costume-raggity Anne and my favorite Halloween movie is It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

  55. Hanna says

    Favorite Candy: Candy corn. I LOVE all the different flavors that come out every year, but the original is still the best! It always brings that Halloween spirit to life.
    Favorite Costume: Any Disney Princess! I am still a kid at heart and am absolutely in love with Disney’s fairy tale stories. I have dressed up as just about every princess in the book, and this year I am going to be Pocahontas.
    Favorite Movie: Hocus Pocus. I enjoyed it the first time I ever saw it on Disney channel. I make it a point to watch it every year, at least once! I don’t own the movie yet, so this would be the perfect opportunity :) It’s a great combination of humor and spookiness that every kid, and adult, can fall in love with.

    Happy Halloween!!! :0

  56. Kayleethebird says

    Favourite candy: candy cigarettes

    Favourite movie: hocus pocus. Watched it all the time as a kid and can’t wait to watch it this year.

    Favourite costume: southern belle

  57. says

    MY favorite Halloween candy is Candy Corn! It is the best invention ever, I mean seriously. Everyone I know hates it, but the pure sugar is just what the body needs when it is getting cold, right?
    My favorite Halloween costume, currently, because it always changes, it my dog’s cupcake costume I made her this year.
    My favorite Halloween Movie is probably Hocus Pocus, I grew up on it and it is just perfect.

  58. says

    Candy: Reeses!
    Costume: Last year I was a pregnant 50s housewife… and my husband was a milkman with lipstick on his collar.
    Movie: The Nightmare before Christmas (that’s a Halloween movie, right?)

  59. says

    My favorite Halloween candy was always the gigantic candy bars, especially snickers. My parents never let us have candy as children, so Halloween was pretty much the best thing ever. I’ve made most of my own costumes (although not well) and I think my favorite one was Poison Ivy! I don’t have a favorite Halloween movie, BUT I watch more movies during October than any other month of the year. I go to the movie theaters with my best friend and we watch EVERY scary movie they have, regardless of ratings. Then we watch some more on netflix! (Ok, we do that all year too….) but especially in October!

  60. Carissa Ann says

    Favorite Halloween candy – Definitely would be the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pumpkins or Lollipops (can never get enough of them, especially Tootsie Pops!)
    Favorite Halloween costume – Last year I dressed up as The Great Pumpkin (not the most flattering costume ever but certainly kept people from bumping into me all the time!)
    Favorite Halloween movie – I LOOOOOOVE Hocus Pocus and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown…hence my mild obsession with pumpkin shaped things and pumpkin flavors!

  61. Ashley says

    1. Those jellie candies (Dots? maybe that was the name) that came in those little yellow boxes. YUM.

    2. I was once a red crayon, and my sister was a box of crayons that was missing the red crayon. It was pretty awesome.

    3. I never really watched Halloween movies, so I don’t have a favourite. :)

  62. Debbie says

    Now that’s some cute Halloween stuff right there.

    Favorite Halloween candy – Right now I’m in the mood for the candy corn/pumpkin mix…you know the kind that also has the brown (chocolate?) on the candy corn. Although, I totally associate Pixie Stix with Halloween. And there’s not much better in the world than a straight shot of sugar in a paper tube.
    Favorite Halloween costume – (Dork alert!) In fifth grade, I dressed up as a teacher on strike. I carried a picket sign that said “An apple a day is not enough pay.”
    Favorite Halloween movie – It’s the Great Pumpkin

  63. amy marantino says

  64. Holly Strachan says

    My favorite Halloween treat is Caramel Apples. They are awesome and can be dipped in anything! I like Twix crumbles :) Favorite costume. Tie between the Ninja Turtles and Smurfs. I just love it when people use body paint! I was Lisa Simpson one year :) And movie would be Death Becomes Her. So funny!!!

    Good Luck to all and Happy Halloween

  65. says

    My favorite Halloween candy is definitely Twix, although it’s technically not Halloween candy since I can eat it all year. My favorite Halloween costume was when I was Meredith Grey from Grey’s Anatomy. I walked around in my scrubs and I was so warm and comfortable. And my favorite Halloween movie will always be the Nightmare Before Christmas.

  66. says

    favorite Halloween candy: Anything Chocolate :) but right now I love the M&M’s candy corn!
    favorite Halloween costume: Alice & wonderland
    favorite Halloween movie: Halloweentow & Hocus pocus :)
    I love the give away :) I have some idea I been wanting to do with cupcakes so I would love to win the giveaway :)

  67. Cassie says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? I love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? Probably when I dressed up as a 50’s girl in a poodle skirt my mom made me.

  68. LPmobley says

    I like any candy… I am obsessed with candy! My favorite halloween costume was from 2 years ago… I was a tornado and it was hilarious!

  69. says

    My favorite Halloween candy is dark chocolate Reese’s cups (which are actually year round…). I was always a witch or black cat growing up (black clothes and hat or mask-super simple & cheap) & my fave movie for Halloween is Monster Squad–love it!

  70. Kayla says

    Favorite candy: those cute little marshmallow ghosts!!!!
    Costume: Luna from Harry potter complete with cork necklace, radish earrings, spectrespecs and quibbler!!!!
    Movie: the nightmare before Christmas

  71. Catharine says

    Favorite Candy – Even though I do associate Halloween with candy, since it actually is my birthday, I really associate it more with my mom’s red velvet cake, the birthday standard in our house. Does that count? If not, Snickers.

    Favorite Costume – When I was turning eleven, I decided to be a mushroom for Halloween. I wore all white clothing with a chef’s hat painted red with white spots on it.

    Favorite Movie – For some reason it seems like the Harry Potter movies are often on tv on the weekend closest to Halloween, so I guess I would say that it would be those.

  72. Katie Jones says

    Candy Corn! A witch! and Halloween Town! My 15 year old daughter and I recorded it last night for a soon future viewing, and I cancelled a Food Network show, Sweet Genius to do it! :-)

  73. Sabrina says

    Favorite halloween candy – Reese’s pieces
    Favorite costume – anything with awesome wings!
    Favorite halloween movie – Hocus Pocus.

  74. Brooke says

    Candy Corn is the greatest! I Love Jack O Lantern costumes! Favorite Halloween movie is “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”

  75. Catie says

    I love the Reese’s Pumpkins, or pretty much anything else with chocolate and peanut butter! My favorite costume for this year is my dog’s prison outfit – I hope he loves it as much as I do. And as for scary movies – I love scary movies, and watch them year round. But we have a tradition of watching Children of the Corn and then going to a haunted corn maze. So much fun!

  76. Tracy says

    Candy corn is by far my favorite Halloween candy.
    My favorite costume was a masquerade witch. I made this kick butt mask and I had a vinyl dress with a bustle. It was awesome!
    Nightmare before Christmas is a must and Interview with a Vampire.

  77. Ashley H. says

    My favorite Halloween movie is actually Hocus Pocus. My brother and I would watch it every year. My favorite costume is anything pirate or gypsy.

  78. says

    I always pull the Kit Kats out of my nephews trick or treat bags ;)
    My favorite Halloween costume was one my mom made for me and was to fit in with my FAVortie Halloween movie — Hocus Pocus! I did my lips to look like Winifred’s (sorta) and my hair to be like Mary’s (sorta). Oh my does that bring back memories. I was in my early 20s. WOW! Yikes! Dang that was like forever ago!
    And now a days my favorite TV show is NCIS which of course has Sean Murray (McGee) who played Thackery Binx in Hocus Pocus. :)

  79. Nedda says

    Favorite Halloween candy- Wow, haven’t had any in long time the first thing that comes to mind are those mini Reese’s cups, I love those. Of course there’s also candy corn!! Making me think of a favorite makes me realize how much I miss the stuff. :'(
    Favorite costume- Never really did the whole dress up & costumes & all. I don’t have a favorite- as it longs as it looks great, it’s all good.
    Favorite Halloween movie- Don’t have a particular favorite but the 1st thing that comes to mind is Halloween H20, I was 10 at the time & I was finally able to watch at school when Halloween came round (it finally released in video). *Sighs* Josh Hartnett, that’s all that needs to be said. ^_^

  80. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? Peanut Butter Eggs
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? Strawberry Shortcake, a fortune teller or a Hogwart’s Student
    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie? Practical Magic

  81. says

    My favorite Halloween candy would have to be Halloween Oreos. I know it’s technically NOT a candy, but I love the Halloween designs on them and the fact that they are double stuft! YUMMMM!!!! And the orange cream filling is awesome!!!

    My favorite costume was one that I made for myself. A neighbor had gotten a new refrigerator and I got creative and decided to be a box of saltine crackers. I used an actual box of the crackers as my template and with some help from my parents, pulled the costume together! I got so many compliments and the fact that I had made it myself made it even better! :)

    A movie that I like to watch around Halloween time would have to be A Nightmare Before Christmas!!!!

  82. Maria Elena says

    I am a chocoholic and get especially excited when my favorite candies come in pumpkin/jack-o-lantern shapes. Reeses taste better when they’re smiling at me!
    I have to say my favorite costume was dressing my three-year-old as Edgar Allen Poe (now that’s comedy!), though my personal go-to is ye ol’ pirate-Arrr!
    Every year I get out Garfield’s Halloween Special because I laugh EVERY time Odie dresses as a pirate with four peg legs! Plus Garfield’s snarkiness is my kind of funny.
    Happy October!!

  83. Theresa Sea says

    Fave candy: Probably the mini boxes of Dots. Those have been my fave since I was a wee one. :)
    Fave costume: I was Alice (in Wonderland) about 3 years ago (a year before Tim Burton’s movie came out), and I totally fit the part! Loved my costume.
    Fave Hween movie: probably the old-school Disney animated cartoon. When I think Halloween, I definitely think Disney’s Halloween Treat.

  84. says

    what is your favorite Halloween candy? Since I just started celebrating Halloween as we normally don’t do that here in Holland (we dress up with carnaval) but I love those creapy eye ball stuff. But a good Halloween cupcake or cake will also work perfect for me!

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? As I already said, we normally don’t dress up for Halloween. I did it once, I was a witch :) I do want to try a bride-zilla sometime, as in Mean Girls, love it!

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? That has to be The Nigthmare before Christmas, love that one!

  85. Annabelle says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?

    Anything sour like warheads or which dyes your mouth some unatural colour! Or fizzy candies!!!
    Otherwise candy corn is awesome.

    My faourite costume involes a beautiful long puffy wedding dress I found at a second hand store, a Marie Antoinette wig, red contact lenses really tall platform boots and make-up. Oh, and long claw like nails. A simple yet elegant monster.

    Nightmare Before Christmas.

  86. Danielle says

    My favorite Halloween candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins. Hands down. I even have some in the freezer from last year. :D My favorite Halloween Costume was one my dad made me when I was a kid. I was a Coke Machine. I kid you not. He got a sort-of (I’m short) tall box, painted it to look like a coke machine, and then cut open the part where the can comes out for me to tape my treat bag to. People dropped candy in there. It was awesome. Hard to walk in, but so freaking cool. My favorite movie is probably the 1987 version of The Canterville Ghost.

  87. Jenn says

    I love candy corn, and my favorite costume was a ladybug in a group costume of bugs with my friends. The best Halloween movie is Rocky Horror. I have always wanted to dress up as one of those characters.

  88. says

    My favorite Halloween candy is the mini-bars of Mounds. Dark chocolate and coconut….yum!
    My favorite Halloween costume was the year my four-year old wanted to go as his favorite animal–a gulper fish. I sewed him a costume out of black foamy material, then covered his old bike helmet with the material, added paper cut like big fangs, and bent a wire hanger attached to the helmet over his head, from which we dangled one of those glow-tube lights (the ones in the plastic tubes that you crack to combine the chemicals so that it glows in the dark–big during Halloween and concerts). It was a lot of work, but SO cute!
    My favorite Halloween movie is Practical Magic, because I LOVE the idea of … Midnight Margaritas! Put the lime in the coconut, and mix it all up…

  89. Jessica Sides says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? Bit o Honey..I never eat it but at halloween and I love it so much!

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? My favorite of all time was being Jem from Jem and the Holograms, but my favorite of -ever- is when I dressed my boys up as Hedwig and Harry Potter..it was precious.

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? Oh…well if it’s just me and the adults we always watch Rocky Horror Picture Show but I love Hocus Pocus for the kids..and the old legend of sleepy hollow!!

  90. says

    My favorite candy for Halloween is Butterfinger mini’s. Funny store, my 8 mo old (back in ’07) was teething and I gave her a butterfinger mini to gnaw on. I looked back and saw that she had eaten through the wrapper and half the candy bar!

    My favorite costume was a couples costume with my husband. He’s 6’8″, I’m 4’10” and we went as Herman and Lily Munster. Green makeup, bolts on the neck, we looked so awesome people didn’t even know it was us.

    As for my favorite movie, for some reason The Goonies has always been a good Halloween movie for me. Love that movie! And your blog too!

  91. Tammy rvt says

    1) Caramel apples, hands down!
    2) I sewed a milk maid costume complete with bonnet and apron and dressed my dogs up like cows, with cow bells!
    3) Charlie Brown and the great pumpkin.
    And I’m making your cinnamon roll cupcakes tomorrow for a friends birthday! They look amazing!

  92. lisa says

    Costume: Saw a kid in my class in grammar school who dressed up as a mailbox. That’s still the coolest cardboard-box/homemade costume I’ve seen!
    Candy: We didn’t get to eat much candy except @ Halloween, so I was thrilled when I got PB Cups! My fav, but we never had them lying around.
    Movie: Well, I could say Hocus Pocus, but you already said it. Second place–The Halloween That Almost Wasn’t…Pretty weird, but that’s what we watched every Hallow’s Eve!
    Wow, October is big for birthdays. Happy Birthday to you.

  93. Liz says

    I LOVE HALLOWEEN! It might just be my fav holiday!
    My favorite Halloween candy are the Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkin things, but as a child we had a lady in town who made these amazing homemade caramel, marshmallow, cereal things that were to die for. We went to her house twice!
    My favorite costume was Pippi Longstocking. My dad used a coat hanger to make my braids stand straight out. I had to turn sideways to get through the doorway!
    At Halloween time, I always watch “Silence of the Lambs”. It is like the ultimate thriller movie!

  94. Lisa Y. says

    My favorite Halloween candy is a tie between Reeses and Bottle Caps.

    My favorite costume was probably a nun…I wore it when I was several months preganant with my daughter and got a lot of laughs.

    Favorite movie? I LOVED the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown when I was little…and I haven’t found one I liked better since…so I guess that would still be it! :)

  95. Stephanie Admas says

    I love the reese peanut butter cups :D:D:D: My favorite costume are the historiacl ones – medieval, rennaissane, etc… just about any historically accurate costume. I don’t like the short, chest baring pretenders most often found. The favorite movie for Halloween is the original Godzilla. My boys first saw it 6 years ago on AMC during their Halloween marathon and they’ve been hooked on Godzilla ever since. We’ve now seen every Godzilla movie and cartoon made and search ebay for the toys.

  96. doreen says

    My favorie halloween candy is candy corn. And it baffles me that some people don’t like it. My favorite halloween costume is the crayola crayon my dad and his boss wore that my mom made. She even made a box for them too. Movie: It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!!

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway! *fingers crossed*

  97. brandi says

    Candy: Well now it’s Mini Reese’s cups!
    Costume: My personal favorite was when I was Jem and I can’t wait to dress William up as a Cowboy this year.
    Movie: The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

  98. Amber Atkins says

    My favorite candy is the reese cup pumpkins, they taste so much better than the regular ones. FAvorite costume was the brickhouse costume I made two years ago. And my favorite movie is Halloween! Although zombie movies are the ones we watch the most , since they are the boys fav!orites

  99. Alisha says

    Favourite Halloween Candy are those Gummy Burgers and these new Ghost Marshmallows that I saw last year. They have tropical flavours to them!

    Favourite Costume that I’ve worn has to be my Betty Boop costume. I made her little red dress out of a Size 10 skirt, and I’m about a size 1 which made it extra challenging.

    Last but not least, favourite movie to watch around Halloween is Gremlins 1 & 2! They’re my favourite movies all time and they come on tv at Halloween and at Christmas, extra bonus for me!

    Happy Early Halloween!

  100. Sarah says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy?
    It has to be Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I am like Pavlov’s dogs around those things!

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume?
    My Sally costume from Nightmare Before Christmas. I made it in 3 nights, rushing to make sure it was finished so I could wear it to the Halloween party at Disney a few days later. I was in such a rush I had to wear my Ariel wig that year! This was three years ago and I have greatly improved the accessories that I wear with this costume (including a proper wig and perfect shoes). This is by far my favorite costume that I have ever created. It looks so much better than the cheap premade costumes you can by from a store, if I do say so myself. I even used the leftover material to create a Sally patchwork pillow! :)

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?
    It is a tie between Nightmare before Christmas and Hocus Pocus. I grew up watching Hocus Pocus every Halloween and I still try to continue the tradition! I think anyone my age would have to say this movie was one of their favorites and if asked to say ‘Thackery Binx’ would say it in the dreamlike way his sister did in the movie. However, as expressed above in the last question, I also love Nightmare Before Christmas. It’s one of those movies I could put in any day of the year and be absolutely content with watching.

  101. Kim says

    It’s so dead here at work, that I was like, I’m gonna go on bakingdom. I hope Darla has posted a new entry. Then I find that not only you have posted a new entry, but it’s a super-awesome Halloween giveaway entry. Day=made.

    Favorite candy: Last year I made “My Bloody Valentine” whoopie pies, which were red velvet whoopies with cherry pie filling and cream cheese marshmellow filling, drizzled them with a red glaze, and decorated them with gummy hearts and brains. They were super creepy and… not candy. If those don’t count, then Nerds. Although it’s slightly cannabalistic of me.

    Movie: Interview with the Vampire. Tom Cruise as Lestat makes me a happy fangirl. That and High Anxiety by Mel Brooks. Because it’s a great way to pay tribute to Alfred Hitchcock without watching scary movies.

    Costume: Well, this year, since my friends and I are going to New York Comic Con, we’re reusing our cosplay costumes for Halloween. I’m being Clara from the Guild, and I get to wear a squid hat, which is awesome.

  102. Natalie G. says

    Such a cute giveaway!
    Favorite
    Candy: candy corn and the candy corn pumpkins (forgot their name!)
    Costume: the mad hatters my husband and I were last year, I really want to wear them again this year- that’s how cool they are. But, no, have to go into the cycle and wait a few years. :)
    Movie: Totally Halloween- I can watch the first one over and over and the others, eh, I’ll watch them but they’re not great. However, Trick or Treat is actually a pretty good modern horror film too, it may be my new favorite.

  103. Chantel says

    My favorite Halloween candy would probably be either the mini Twizzlers or the mini boxes of Dots. I love fruity and gummy candies, and I always end up buying some…more for myself than for the trick or treaters.

    My favorite Halloween costume was a Halloween fairy. It was a costume that I just kind of put together myself one year in high school. I wore shimmery black pants, a orange shirt that said Trick on the front and Treat on the back, black fairy wings, lots of glitter, and Halloween colored makeup! I even painted my fingernails to look like candy corn.

    My favorite Halloween movie is Hocus Pocus. I remember watching it all the time when I was a kid, and I still watch it every year around Halloween. I don’t know why I’ve never bought the DVD for myself, but I absolutely love this movie!

  104. Ashley says

    First of all, I completely agree that cute spiders are the only ones that are ok in this world. Secondly, do I have to pick a favorite candy?? If you’re going to pull my arm, I’m going to say FastBreak. Mmmmmm…..
    My favorite costume is the one I’m making this year! My new status as a Hufflepuff inspired me. I’m going to be a Hogwarts student this year, complete with hand knitted scarf.
    Dorky as I am, one of my favorite movies to watch around Halloween is Halloweentown. (Insert scoffing here) I know, I know, but I really like it. I’ve watched it since I was young, and I think it’s fun. Also, we watched Poltergeist a lot for Halloween when I was younger.

  105. T says

    Favorite Halloween Candy – Mellowcreme pumpkins – all the sweetness of candy corn, plus pumpkins shapes!
    Favorite Halloween Costume – My dad made me a sandwich-board type costume so I could go as a headstone.
    Favorite Halloween Movie – It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

    Halloween is my absolutely most favorite holiday. You can do anything you want, without judgment or expectations. Want to have a party? Go for it. Decorate like crazy? Don’t decorate at all? Everyone is ok with either. Hang out with family? Friends? Sure. No one pressures you to get on a plane, and you don’t feel sad if you have to work that night. And the hangover from candy is pretty mild.

    Plus it’s a beautiful time of year when the leaves turn, and the weather is crisp and invigorating (sorry Darla, I know it’s warm and humid for you. Back home, anyway).

    T

  106. Stephanie Grant says

    I just love Halloween and Oct, and everything about them…..Happy Birthday by the way and I’m also an Oct baby……my 26th birthday will be Oct 11 :) anyways here are my absolute favorites!
    What is your favorite Halloween candy? Candy Creme Pumpkins :)
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? Pirates!
    What is your favorite Halloween movie? Hocus Pocus…. I don’t know why but it always puts me in the Halloween spirit!

  107. Kayla J. says

    Candy: Seriously??? Just one??? Chocolate. I’d have to say chocolate. I like all those little bitty bite size candy bars and M&M’s and I’m pretty sure I’d LOVE the white chocolate Halloween M&M’s if I could find them…
    Costume: Much easier… Black Cat when I was little – The Grim Reaper as an adult…
    Movie: My favorite isn’t actually a movie. It’s a made for television 30 minute Halloween program called something like The Halloweeen That Almost Wasn’t. I haven’t seen it in several years, but it used to come on pretty much every October. It was sooooo cute. As far as a “witchy” movie, I like Practical Magic.

  108. says

    I love candy corn and caramel apple pops!
    I made my own owl costume 2 years ago, I based it from a Martha Stewart baby pattern! LOL
    I don’t watch the scary movies anymore but I love all the ones that play on tv during the month… especially beetlejuice!

  109. Tammie says

    I like to mix candy corn with m&ms (any good candy has to include chocolate right?)
    My favorite costume ever was my 8 year old son as a mini-gangster…oc course I think all costumes are super cute when my son is wearing them HeeHee.
    My favorite halloween movie is not really a halloween movie but it does involve extrateresstials (did I spell that right?)….ET!!! Sweetest movie ever.

  110. chatelaine says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? I’ll pop hershey kisses in the seasonal flavors so fast because you only get that one time a year!
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? I had the most fun in my jelly fish costume last year – although carrying the umbrella around kinda sucked
    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? Practial Magic!

  111. Roxanne says

    My birthday is right around Halloween, so my mom always made the holiday extra-special. I would always have costume birthday parties and spooky themed decorations. So now, even though I hate being scared, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays — I love all the cutesy stuff and the fun colors! My favorite costume has to be a toss-up between a dragon costume my mom made me and a black cat costume (because that year, my whole birthday was black cat themed, which was way cool). My favortie candy used to be Tootsie Rolls, but they’re too sweet for me now; I still remember how disappointed I was to realize that! And I’d have to go with Ghostbusters for the movie, though I haven’t seen Hocust Pocus since I was a kid and totally need to fix that! :)

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway and your fantastic website!

  112. Michelle says

    Hi Darla,

    This being my first comment on your website (even after a year or so of coming) I just wanted to say thank you for all that you share. Your whimsical approach to baking/cooking is wonderful and brings a smile to my face.

    It is also very inspiring to my creative side :)

    Now, on to answering the questions!

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? I am a sucker for the mini Snickers bars (at Halloween and year round too) something about them is just so dang addicting!

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume?: One of the favorite costumes I had was when I was a freshman in college. I found some pieces to throw together and make a pirate costume. I found this silly little red velvet dress that I added boots, stockings, a white ruffle shirt and a belt to. The best part? A number of years later my older sister found the red dress and was able to make a Betty Boop costume out of it! So it got double usage! :)

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?: Have been, always will be a HUGE fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas. Now, I know it says Christmas in the title, but when part of the story takes place in HALLOWEEN TOWN I have to give it props for a double holiday movie: Halloween and Christmas. Love it, love it, love it. Also, I really love Hocus Pocus from when I was a kid watching the Disney Channel and now KNOW who Sarah Jessica Parker is for a totally different reason and totally FORGOT she was in that movie. Too funny.

    Anyway, hope you enjoy reading the answers and thanks again for your fun site! :)

    -Michelle C.

  113. Julie says

    I am amazed at the sheer amount of this fantastic swag. It’s swagtastic. Thanks for the chance to win. :) My favorite Halloween candy is Reese’s peanut butter pumpkins, perfect chocolate to PB ratio! My favorite costume was when I was Dorothy; my grandma sewed me a gingham jumper and my parents made me ruby slippers. :) Finally, my favorite Halloween movie is Psycho, although, if I’m not in a scary mood, I like Disney’s Halloweentown. <3

  114. Kim says

    My favorite candy is definitely candy corn.

    My favorite movie is the Charlie Brown Halloween special.

    My favorite costume is a ladybug. wrist but super cute:)

  115. Eve Bare says

    Favorite candy: That would have to be Kit kats….I still raid the kids’ buckets and dig them out. LOL Been my favorite since I was a kid.
    Favorite costume: A few years ago I worked at one of the biggest costume shops in Indy and the owner let me borrow any costume I wanted to trick-or-treat with my kids….Of course I had to find the BIGGEST, most OBNOXIOUS, and FLOWY costume they had…..So, I went with Marie Antoinette, complete with the TALL white wig. :)

    Favorite movie: HALLOWEEN!!!!!!! But when the kids are watching with me, our favs are the same as yours… Hocus Pocus & Nightmare before Christmas.

  116. Candice says

    Hi there! I think this is such a fun giveaway haha I would totally send you a picture all goofed up using this =^_^=
    My favorite Halloween candy is Candy Corn even though my whole family hates it. I always have to start on either side chomping each color at a time (white, yellow then orange or vice versea lol)

    My favorite Halloween costume? I don’t really have a favorite I just love dressing up into anything that gets me into the Halloweeny spirit of things! and that can be anything! or I’ll mix my favorites up and make something fitting me such as a witch with fairy wings a harry potter wand and tie with vampire teeth!

    Halloween movie HOCUS POCUS! I always make sure to catch it on TV! its always on the Disney channel around then and its awesome! The I watch Halloween Town, Goosebumps, and I ALWAYS ALWAYS have to watch Silver Bullet. Werewolf movies ftw! I hope I did this right! I’m never good at these things.

    My favorite Holiday is easy, its my little girls Birthday <3 Before I had her, I didn't celebrate much at all, my family rarely did anything ever and I was pretty lonely to be honest. But after she was born she has given me so much to look forward to and celebrating her birthday always brings me the most joy. She is my entire reason for life now, she has given me real purpose in life and I love celebrating her in anyway possible.
    This will be her 2nd Halloween she will actually be able to enjoy this one more since she was only about 3-4 months old last year :)

    Thanks Darla!

  117. John says

    Favorite Halloween Candy: Candy Corn (but not the brown ones!)
    Favorite costume: Ok, not very Halloweeny, but I did a darned good job making myself up as Spock one year, pointed ears, arched eyebrows and everything!
    Halloween Movie: Is it a Halloween movie? I don’t know, but I do always enjoy Beetlejuice around Halloween! And of course, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

  118. says

    My fav costume – fairy!!! Totally girly for me. Princess would work too.

  120. Lily says

    My favourite candy for Halloween is bounty :) I never eat it at any other time of the year, but for some reason come october I have to have it lol.
    Fave costume: a bin bag dress! Kinda weird. It was a last min decision and turned out quite well considering :D I wore it over a puffy skirt and cinched it with a belt ^_^
    fave film: you have it up there- HOCUS POCUS :D I have watched it for every Halloween since I was a kid and it’s always as awesome as I remember <3

  121. says

    Candy: Mounds. So awesome.
    Costume: one I threw together freshman year of college – sheet + pretty belt + flowers + blonde curls + LOTS of bronze glitter = Aphrodite! But my most comfortable one was as Buffy the Vampire Slayer last year :)
    Movie: …I’m not really the Halloween movie type. But one Halloween we watched Dark Water and laughed our tushies off at how bad it was.

  124. Meghan says

    my favorite halloween candy is Sixlets. Old school, I know, but I love ‘em. I have always loved being Snow White or a Gypsy. And Nightmare Before Christmas and The Corpse Bride are sooo good!

  125. Eman Walker says

    Love Candy corn, especially the chocolate indian corn variety…Favorite costume is always a witch… you can do so much with it…favorite movie -even with the hypocrisy – The Great Pumpkin

  126. Cindy says

    Candy: oh where can I start, anything gummy, those caramel apple lollipops, twix, hersheys coookies and cream, orange (white chocoalte) kit kats, and seasonal flavor hershey kisses.

    Costume: Sailor Moon from 5th grade. All my friends dressed up. I love group costumes

    Movie: I never really watch Halloween movies. I don’t know why we rented Piranhas but it was so ridiculously bad that it worked to keep us entertained.

  127. Kelly says

    Favorite candy at Halloween would be anything chocolate- mini candy bars!
    Favorite Halloween costume would be a vampire!

  129. Celina says

    My favorite Halloween candy are those Caramel Apple Sugar Babies. They are so addicting. My favorite Halloween costume would have to be a cute cupcake that I really, really want. I love to watch all kind of scary movies around Halloween. :)

    What is your favorite Halloween candy?
    -candy corn and those little pumpkins!

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume?
    I was Hermione Granger once, that was fun!!

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?

    I really love Hocus Pocus as well. It’s a goodie!!

  131. Lindsey W.B says

    Favorite candy is so hard to choose, but I love anything in those Mini FUN sizes, but especially Twix! Halloween costume was probably when I went as a “50s Girl” when I was 10, my Grandmother handmade me this amazing baby blue poodle skirt, which was sadly destroyed after an excited friend dropped purple cake on it. And for the movie, I think Nightmare before Christmas wins hands down. There is always so much debate over whether it’s a halloween movie or a christmas movie, so we just watch it twice at my house and everyone is happy!

  132. Tennnessee says

    My favorite candy would be: twizzlers or candy corn.
    Favorite costume would have to be when I was 5 my Grandma made me a Princess Jasmine outfit <3.
    And my favorite movie to watch around Halloween would be The Witched of Eastwick (even though its not really Halloween themed) or Nightmare Before Christmas!

    Yaaay!!

  133. Colleen says

    I order:
    1. Reese’s – my siblings and I used to fight about them.
    2. One year my siblings and I dressed up as characters from the Wizard of Oz (the lion, the scarecrow, the tin man and the witch). No one got to be Dorothy because the three of us girls couldn’t stop arguing over who got to be her.
    3. Nightmare before Christmas, hands-down.

  134. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy?

    I love candy corn! Oh and like the person in the post above me said, SIXLETS! I can never get enough of them, and it seems they are only around on Halloween. I also love how there is a mass of Reese’s peanut butter cups around.

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume?

    When I was a really little kid, I was Pebbles from the Flinstones. I looked adorable!

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?

    I love Hocus Pocus, your post reminded me I must find when it’s on next. I also absolutely love the Halloweentown movies and I never get tired of them.

  135. says

    My favorite candy is Reese’s! They are so yummy!

    I love dressing up in really elaborate costumes. One year I went as Mardi Gras and I had a crazy outfit, a mask AND crazy face paint. That was probably my favorite costume.

    Nightmare Before Christmas is my FAVORITE movie period. And I get to watch it at Halloween and Christmas. Perfect. :)

    Thanks Ms. Darla!! :)

  136. says

    Holy crap, awesome! Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I’m actually commenting for once. :D

    What is your favorite Halloween candy?
    Can I mod this to say “candy apples”? If not, then I’m definitely gonna go with – as silly as it is – those fun-wrapped kisses of halloween M&M’s. Call me crazy, but I go for the color gimmicks, so if you wrap a regular Hershey’s kiss in orange and black foil or give me a mini bag of orange and black M&M’s, I go crazy.

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume?
    When I was… I wanna say in second grade, my mom and her friends banded together and made me the awesomest pirate costume *EVER*. Striped shirt, pirate hat, black pants, a red cloth sash around the middle, and I even had a sword custom made – one of my mom’s friends was an artist and made me this kind of silvery, plexi-glass sword to bring (they probably would not allow it nowadays). Best of all? My mom told me I couldn’t talk about “rum” at school so all day I wandered around my elementary school singing “yo ho ho and a bottle of milk.”

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?
    Oh man, this is hard… one of the tops has got to be Hocus Pocus, of course, just because of the campy and the Bette Middler and the awesomeness. Up there would also be Nightmare Before Christmas, Casper, and Shaun of the Dead (for the gore and lols), but for a combination of star-studded amazingness, camp, a pinch of creepy and the Halloween vibe, I’m going to have to go with the Addams Family movies. Anjelica Houston as Morticia? Cannot be beat. :)

  137. Kari says

    My favorite Halloween candy is Peanut Butter Cups
    My favorite Halloween movie is Hocus Pocus. (Good choice)
    My favorite Halloween costume? My daughter was a Carebear last year. SO CUTE!

  138. Cecily says

    I love your site. You are so talented. My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn and pupkins, the ones that taste like sugar. And those caramel apple pops. When I was 5 my mom made my this red saten princess dress, my favorite ever. I like so many movies I could not pick a favorite.

  139. Cindy Ray says

    My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn, I love that stuff :)
    I loved the year I dressed up as Spongebob Squarepants. took a box and a friend and me painted Spongebob Squarepants on it, took turns wearing and had a blast that year taking the kiddies trick or treating :)
    Ooo the movies I like to watch are Freddy Krueger, Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw Masquer, and any other good scary movies and the one I like to watch with the kiddies is Nightmare Before Christmas :)

    What a fun giveaway, totally love the prizes! :) They have me super inspired for Halloween.

    My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn…love eating them one color at a time! My best Halloween costume was Red Riding Hood…I was really proud of it because I sewed the cape myself (with some help from a friend), and it looked really professional! :) My favorite Halloween movie is Practical Magic! :)

  141. Ashley says

    Candy – Nestle Crunch and love candy corn mixed with spanish peanuts
    Costume – Witch or Dead Bride
    Movie – Practical Magic

  142. Dani says

    My all time favorite candy ever is Twix. I used to snatch those up as if they’d vanish in a heartbeat whenever the candy bowl was offered. When it wasn’t (or when they had something yucky, like raisins) I would seriously pout. I think my mom has a picture.
    My favorite costume is a tricky one. Mainly because I was always a witch. So I guess that’s my default BUT there was definitely a year I liked better than the rest. My last year of trick or treating was right when Harry Potter came out. And I had an invisibility cloak. It’s all sleek and slithery and it has a gasoline effect so it changes colors from silver to blue to purple. THAT looked cool.
    As for movie, it is, and always will be, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Grew up going to Snoopy’s ice arena every week so maybe I’m biased ;-)

  143. Tiffany T. says

    Favorite candy for Halloween are Reese Peanut Butter Pumpkins, or anything chocolate!
    As for costume, iv always wanted to be a cupcake!
    Favorite movie, this time of year i love to watch poltergeist, its creepy and ghosts just get to me!

  144. Regina Long says

    My favorite halloween candy is candy corn! Yummy, sweet and pretty!

    My favorite costume was not mine but my friend, Stephens, he was a Orange and Black Cowboy, complete with feather chaps and glittery cowboy boots.

    My favorite movie (halloween) is Its the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!! :)

  145. Kristin says

    My favorite Halloween candy is Reese’s peanut butter cups. My favorite costume was my son’s wizard costume was he was a baby and I love A Charlie Brown Halloween!

  146. Brittany McIntyre says

    My all time fav halloween candy has to be candy corn. My family love the stuff. Its always around our house this time of year. As for my fav costume. It would have to be the one my son had when he was 4 He was hedwig the owl. He was soooo cute. He is 7 now so were not that into cute this year.
    Our Halloween movie tradition is a Harry potter Marathon followed by Halloweentown one, and a big bowl for buttered popcorn. BTW I have found Candy Corn flavored popcorn, can’t wait to try it out. lol

  147. Rossa Pera says

    Candy corn is my favorite Halloween candy, dressing up as a witch is/was my favorite costume, and my favorite Halloween movie is Harry Potter. Before that I enjoyed watching Hocus Pocus.

  148. Marcie says

    Halloween is my FAVORITE! I’m not a huge sweet tooth, but even I love Halloween candy. It comes all individually wrapped with jackolanterns and spiders and other cool stuff. Plus there’s all the amazing costumes. I love the homemade variety myself. As a kid I used to hate having to wear a costume we made out of random items we found around the house, but now it’s a challenge. Each year I try to outdo the last year’s costume with my creative process that starts pretty much the day after Halloween. And of course there are some great movies out there with Hocus Pocus and Nightmare Before Christmas being my favorite of the Halloween movies and even some great TV episodes such as Community’s season 2 Halloween episode. CLASSIC!

  149. Michelle I. says

    First off, let me say that I LOVE HALLOWEEN! I think we can all agree that it’s up there as being one of the best holidays ever!
    Okay so my favorite Halloween candies are Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and Peanut M&Ms.
    Favorite Halloween costumes are a tie between when I was Princess Leia in the 4th grade and when I was Alice from Alice in Wonderland a couple years back. I’m 22 but have the body of a 12 year old, so I can actually fit into the kids costumes from the Disney Store. I purchased my costume from there and got such a great response that I wore it two years in a row!
    My favorite Halloween movies are actually the same as yours! Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas are the epitome of my childhood Halloweens, so whenever I watch them it totally brings me back to my younger years running around my neighborhood with my Lion King pillow case filled with candy.
    Thanks for the opportunity!!

  150. Linda says

    My favorite Halloween candy is the fun size 100 Grand Bars. They are so delicious and always make me happy when I fish them out of my bag!
    My favorite Halloween costume is of a Pan Am flight attendent. I was one before the whole craze with the TV show. I had the blue pencil skirt and blazer, a white peter pan collered shirt, the Pan Am pin, and the stewardess hat, complete with kitten heels and curled hair!
    My favorite Halloween movie is It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, enough said. But my close second is Disney Channel’s Halloweentown. I know its meant for children, but I love watching it! One of the best Disney made films.
    Happy Halloween!!

  151. Tracey says

    Favourite candy: erm well any chocolate, any time works for me. I love the chocolate novelties
    Favourite costume: I always love going for the mad goth witch look
    Favourite film : Halloween town, Hocus Pocus, Hammer Horror. They don’t seem to do it now but as a child I would be so excited about Halloween for the special films that were on and all the fun stuff.
    If I’m honest I start my Halloween countdown 1st November XD

  152. Sara S. says

    I love Halloween, especially because it comes 11 days after my birthday (which I never failed to remind people of when growing up). I may be turning 22 this year, but I don’t think I’ll ever stop dressing up for the Holiday.

    My favorite Halloween candy.. everything? I love candy corn (though eating too much at once gets me sick) and I loved getting all the different types of chocolate and little starburst packets.

    My favorite Halloween costume was a Pippi Longstocking costume my mom made for me when I was younger, that I wore for years. My grandmother sent over a Pippi wig from Sweden and I remember feeling so special/cool that I was representing Sweden (I’m half-Swedish/fluent/etc). It was such a great costume, that I recreated it here at college and it was SO fun.

    My favorite Halloween movie is Hocus Pocus. I cannot do scary movies, but I absolutely love Hocus Pocus with the silly witches and the vacuum cleaner instead of a broom and the talking cat. I watch it almost every year – I even watched it while I was in Sweden (I was abroad last fall, so my friends and I had a Halloween night).

  153. Kristy says

    Love your site and all your ideas!

    My favorite Halloween Candy is candy corn, yummy! Love this time of year!

    My favorite costume is the one I made for my son when he was 2, it was a turtle, a regular turtle. It was my first attempt at making his costumes, I wanted to be “that” mom since we’d tried for 9 years to have a baby and were lucky enough to adopt him at birth. The shell was made from double felt and so was kind of hard, like a shell! He was able to wear it when he was also 3, and then turned it into a Ninja Turtle costume at 4! 3 years out of one costume was pretty good! I then passed it down to my girlfriend and she got 2-3 years out of it for her son.

    My favorite movie has to be Charlie Brown, love the great pumpkin!

  154. says

    My favorite Halloween candy is Reese’s, and of course most of the people around my neighborhood gave those out the most for trick or treating, so that was perfect!

    My favorite Halloween costume was when I was Mulan (warrior Mulan, not girly Mulan) in second grade. I loved carrying around the sword!

    My favorite Halloween movie is definitely Hocus Pocus, and I’m a huge fan of the Halloweentown movies..haha love Debbie Reynolds as a witch!

    Awesome giveaway! :)

  155. says

    Favorite candy: Reese’s pumpkins (dark chocolate if you please). Oh yes. Twice the amount of peanut butter!

    Favorite costume: Last year my husband (of 6 days) and I walked in the Zombie walk as a zombie bride and groom. That is pretty much my favorite. Unless you count the year I was a tube of toothpaste.

    Favorite movie: I don’t know if I’d say a movie. Sure I love Hocus Pocus, but I love me some Buffy the Vampire Slayer Halloween episodes.

  156. says

    It’s a close tie, but I’ve always been a min-Snickers, mini-Reses’ PB Cups guy myself. As for the Halloween costume, it had to be Spider Man (the late 70’s all plastic, really crappy design can’t see can’t breathe type of costume) – probably because some kid saw me and shouted in excitement “look Daddy!, it’s Spiderman” I FELT like Spiderman at that moment! For the movie, I’d have to say Beetleguese is right up there at the top of the list. I loved Michael Keaton in it, but also had kind of a crush on Geena Davis.

  157. Jenny says

    My favorite Halloween candy is probably candy corns or Twix. Mmmmmm… twix. I always think Halloween candy tastes better than candy at other times of the year. No matter what candy it is it usually tastes better. My favorite costume is the costume I’m making for this year. I am going as Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. I also convinced two of my friends to be Harry Potter characters too. One is going as Bellatrix and the other is going to be Hermione. My favorite Halloween movie is, and always be, It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. There are so many awesome quotes from that movie (“I got a rock.”) and it helps me get into an even more Halloween spirit.
    Happy Halloween!

  158. Danni says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? Squirrel Nuts- I love them!
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? My daughter was a lightening bug when she was 2, the coolest costume EVER! It had a little pocket in the back that had a battery operated blinking light so her little backside blinked! I can’t remember where I bought it, but it was a classic!
    Favorite Halloween movie is a toss-up- I love Hocus Pocus too (amokamokamok), and Nightmare, but my kids and I have to watch “Under Wraps” on Disney- It’s a winner in this house!

  159. Dana says

    Favorite halloween candy would probably be mini candy bars like 100 Grand, or Baby Ruth – favorite Halloween costume definitely is Wonder Woman (went as her for 3 Halloweens!), and my favorite Halloween movie is without a doubt, “Hocus Pocus” – HAVE to watch that every year!

  160. Ashlee says

    My favourite Halloween candy is probably candy corn, because it’s so distinctly halloweeny, I mean I love chocolate, but candy corn is more seasonal!

    My favourite Halloween movie is “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” because I always watch it with my Dad and siblings after carving pumpkins!

  166. Noam says

    Favorite Halloween candy? I seriously have to pick one?! I love mini kit kats and milky ways

    Halloween costume? When I was 5 I dressed up as a Peace Dove and actually ended up in the local newspaper!

    Favorite Halloween movie? Definitely has to be anything Tim Burton related! That Tim Burton, Danny Elfman, Johnny Depp trio is just legendary. Happy (Birthday) Halloween!

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway!!!!

  169. Sara says

    My favorite candy is always mini m’n’ms! And I’ve loved Hocus Pocus since my baby sitter showed it to me when I was little!

  170. says

    I luuuvv the Reese’s pumpkins. They have the perfect chocolate-to-peanut butter ratio! :)
    The last year I went trick-or-treating was my senior year in high school (shameless). My siblings and I and a group of friends all dressed up as Star Wars characters. That was the best!

  171. Katie F says

    Great blog! Favorite candy- peanut butter cups! Favorite costume- Hermione (I was 33 when I dressed up, but who cares?). Favorite movie- Harry Potter, Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Thank you!

  172. Dawn says

    Halloween Candy – ALL Candy!! I love it all but if I had to narrow it down I would say anything with caramel and chocolate. Also, during this season CARAMEL CANDY APPLES!! Yummy!!
    My favorite costume – I think it will be this years costume. I’m hosting a Harry Potter Halloween Party and I am going as Professor McGonagall.
    Favorite Halloween movie – Nightmare before Christmas. And now I have the song stuck in my head =)
    Happy Halloween Everyone!!

  173. Marissa says

    I love fun-size candy! My favorites are probably Kit Kats and Reese’s peanut butter cups.

    My favorite costumes: As a kid was a toss up between a mouse and a cat (both made by my mom). In college my boyfriend and I went as a biker (road) and biker (motorcycle) – from a scene in the movie Super Troopers :)

    My favorite Halloween movie – E.T.!

  174. Katelyn says

    Candy: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, especially at Halloween because they make them in pumpkin shapes
    Costume: Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. I loved getting to wear the sparkly red shoes. In fact, there have been a few times as an adult that I’ll pair pigtail braids and red ballet flats with a blue skirt and see in anyone notices :D
    Movie: The Nightmare Before Christmas. It combines my two favorite holidays!

  175. leana says

    I love caramel apples, one year I dressed up as a dead cheerleader. Use my husband motorcycle to go over my friends cheer-leading outfit, hair was wild, pale face and pencil sticking out of my face with blood. For movies I love horror movies so it would be hard to choose one but if I had to for Halloween night then I would probably watch “Halloween”

  176. Sarah says

    I LOVE Reese’s peanut butter pumpkins! My favorite costume was a Crayola crayon, simply because it looked so ridiculous. Hocus Pocus is my favorite movie, but oddly enough, I still don’t own it. :)

  177. Krista says

    I <3 kit-kats! They're really all-year-round faves but they're orange and that makes them halloweeny.
    I was a prom queen a few years back and tried to dye my brunette hair blonde with a spray on hair color – needless to say it went on white and thus I became the "Oldest Prom Queen Ever" – good costume…
    I watched the Blair Witch Project for the first time in October of last year and I think that is going to become my new Halloween tradition!

  178. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?

    My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn! I can eat that all day long and not worry about getting cavities because I floss and brush my teeth a few times :) As for costume, I love my Snow White costume! And unfortunately, I don’t have a favorite Halloween movie. I don’t watch scary movies unless I’m tricked to watch them, which my boyfriend has a high success rate in doing so!

  179. Christina says

    My favorite candy is reeses pieces with fun size butterfingers a close second!!!
    favorite costume has to be when I was a cat when I was around 6 or 7 and looked in the mirror after my make up was done and scared myself!
    LOVE Hocus Pocus!!

  180. Sara says

    Favorite Halloween candy: Reeses (ANYTHING pb & chocolate!) and bite-sized Snickers! Favorite Halloween costume: the best time of my life was romping around in the leaves my dad was raking in my black cat ears and tail. Simple, yes, and classic. Favorite Halloween movie: Garfield’s Halloween Adventure!

  181. Marina says

    candy? – smarties or those crunch bar eye balls

  182. Jackie says

    My favorite candy are the Reeses pumpkins. My favorite costume is probably a bumblebee. And my all time favorite Halloween movie, is the original Halloween movie by John Carpenter! I have to watch it every year!

  183. Kim says

    My favorite Halloween candy is anything dark chocolate! My favorite Halloween costume as a kid was a princess, but my favorite Halloween costume I have ever worn was when I went as a snowstorm.
    My favorite Halloween movie is Wait Until Dark. It’s not specifically Halloween themed, but it’s suspenseful and scary without being gory– perfect for Halloween.

  184. Nuclear Girl says

    Candy: Those peanut butter chewy candies wrapped in either black or orange paper. Do they have a name? Costume: I made incredibly elaborate costumes for my children when they were little. We loved costumes so much I made them year round. Favorite from my childhood was when my grandmother made me an American Indian costume. Didn’t matter if it was 40*F outside, I wasn’t gonna wear a coat because I was so excited about my special costume. Movie: I’m going to have to go with Charlie Brown’s Great Pumpkin because I’m a wimp and don’t watch anything scary. : )

  185. says

  187. Melissa E. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy?
    Only had candy corn for the first time as an adult, which surprises me ’cause I’ve been participating on the whole halloween thing since I was little. That stuff is crazy good and that delicious looking bag wouldn’t last too long.

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume?
    The favourite one I ever wore was when my sweet mother made me a Glenda the Good Witch costume. I think I was about six and felt so special in my dress, crown and magic wand.

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie?
    Young Frankenstein is one of my favourite movies. I’m a big baby around scary movies even though I can watch them so I tend to go towards fun/funny movies. Hocus Pocus would be right up there as well.

  188. Rochelle says

    Favorite candy: Butterfinger bite-size candy bars. Favorite costume: Dorothy! Favorite Halloween movie: Hocus Pocus (I’ve been wanting to update from VHS to DVD)

  190. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy?
    cola flavored gummy

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume?
    3 years ago I was Link from Zelda; many people mistaken me for Robin Hood / Peter Pan; and those who knew were royally offended. By far the best costume because I made it!

    Just posted, but screwed up my website.
    Please disregard that one – here are my answers though:
    I love the individually wrapped twirlers that you can pretty much only get around Halloween in a big mix bag of sorts.
    I dressed up as Madonna a few years ago and still love those pictures- awesome costume!
    Hocus Pocus is my go-to Halloween movie for sure!

    My favorite Halloween candy would have to be the lollipop taht makes the tongue blue. My favorite Halloween costume is one I wore when I was a kid. My mom made it for me and it was supposed to be a witch, but since I liked purpurin so much, my mom tossed tons on the top of my head, so in the end i was confused with a fairy. The Nughtmare Before Christmas

  193. Crystel says

    Candy: Oh boy, this is a tough one! Oooh! I know! Those caramel apple pops! Yeahhh.

    Halloween Costume: This is a tie. One year I was Alex from “Clockwork Orange” and I wore white tights with a white shirt and a white TUTU (with the eyelashes/hat and all, of course). Yes, Alex with a tutu. It was awesome. Then last year I was a strawberry and wore red polka dotted footie pj’s with a red tutu and a headband with a green flower on it … I sense a trend with the tutus.

    Movie: HOCUS POCUS! For sure. I remember seeing it in the theater and freaking out when Danny jumoed out of the closet at Max. Yeah, I was like 8. Ooh, and, Halloweentown, you know, the Disney movie? heh

  194. Jessica says

    My favorite Halloween candy is anything that comes in fun size. That way I can eat one of everything in one go without having to hurl. Ew. My favorite costume was the year I got to be Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas. We drew eyeliner stitches all over my body and I had a crazy yarn wig. My favorite Halloween movies are the same as your, but I always throw in a little Boo to You Too Winne the Pooh. You know, for funsies.

  195. Mattie says

    How cool is this prize, seriously :)

    My favorite Halloween candy is Reeses cups.. I consider it Halloween candy because I never ever eat it except when trick-or-treating!
    I once asked my mom to make me a zebra costume when I was little.. To this day, I still don’t know why I requested it, but it was absolutely fabulous.
    I don’t have a favorite Halloween movie, but I do like to watch Halloween episodes of my favorite TV shows. Otherwise, I’d have to pick Rocky Horror, but I’m not a diehard fan!

    Thanks again for the giveaway and have a good night!

  196. says

    My all time favorite Halloween candy are Kit Kat bars. I’d practically beat up my friends if they wouldn’t want to trade with me! My favorite Halloween costume will be this years Flamingo costume but my favorite Halloween costume ever has to be “Old Greg” that I ran into during a party. He was a complete celebrity.
    Hocus Pocus will forever be my favorite Halloween movie EVER! It can’t be beat!

  197. says

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? I was a great mummy!

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? Blair Witch Project!

  198. Simone says

    My favorite Halloween candy is Candy Corn. It’s just so seasonal and perfect and delicious.

    My favorite Halloween costume is my homemade Wonder Woman costume.

    My favorite Halloween movie is Hocus Pocus. It’s a Disney classic, and you’re right, Bette Middler rocks!

  199. sabrina says

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? would have to be Hocus Pocus or Casper

  201. Linda says

    Candy: can I choose caramel apples? Or if not the candy pumpkins :)
    Costume: Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, all time favorite movie
    Movie: Its Hocus Pocus! I watch it every year

  202. says

    I love love love war heads. You know, those sour things that make your mouth burn for days? Yeah, those. My sister and I got those and made bets on who could take the sour of the longest time. I always won all of her candy like that. (I gave her all of her favorites back, though.)

    My favorite Halloween costume is totally Sailor Mini Moon, who is a small princess made of sugar and sweet dreams. (My older sister went as Sailor Moon the year I went as Sailor Mini Moon. Sailor Moon was Sailor Mini Moons mom, but acted as an older sister most of the time because Sailor Mini Moon showed up on Sailor Moon’s door step as a 7 year old when Sailor Moon was only 14)

    I always watch Sailor Moon SuperS: Black Dream Hole with my sissy during this time of year. It’s a tradition that we’ve had my whole life!

    :D

  203. Rachel says

    Favorite candy has got to be a Twix bar. My best friend and I always split them. ^_^ Favorite costume was probably when I was Spock from Star Trek and my friends were Kirk and Scotty. And my favorite movie is without a doubt Hocus Pocus. :)

  204. Mandy Q says

    My favorite Halloween candy are Bottle Caps, my favorite costume is Marie Antoinette, and my favorite Halloween movie is Hocus Pocus, actually!! Yay!

  205. Emily says

    =]

  206. Madison says

    I absolutely LOVE Halloween! My favorite candy to share with trick-or-treaters is definitely Candy Apples! It matches my favorite costume, Snow White! My sister and I love to watch Hocus Pocus every year, we can quite almost the entire movie together. I love the fall and all the fun that it brings! :)

  207. Emma Brunner says

    Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday!! For you to ask my favorite things of my favorite holiday is so hard for me to answer. So first my favorite candy is Kit-Kats. Simple I know but I love them! Next my favorite costume was when I dressed as Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas who is from my favorite Halloween movie. It’s also my favorite Christmas movie!! But Hocus Pocus is my second favorite Halloween movie. We would watch it every year on my birthday too! Thanks for the amazing blog and the great giveaway!!

  208. Tish says

    Fave halloween candy? Everything that is “fun size” (which really isnt! unless you’re on a diet like I am, so it is!) Fave halloween costume? pirate pirate pirate end of story :] . Fave halloween movie? I’m going to have to say edward scissorhands (and hocus pocus, omg I can’t resist), its basically halloween and christmas all rolled into one!

  209. Carol says

    Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday and it’s my hubby’s birthday. Favorite candy ANYTHING chocolate -probably Raisinetes if I had to pick one. Favorite Halloween costume: I teach and the whole dept. dresses up at my school best was when I dressed up as a Bubonic plague sufferer. Favorite Halloween movie has to be Young Frankenstein.

  210. Rachael G says

    Fave candy – Any little chocolate bar (minus butterfingers – eww). Those were what I tended to hide away from sneaky parents and siblings after sorting through my trick-or-treating loot. Fave costume – My mom dressed me up as Madonna when I was a baby. Sadly, I haven’t been able to top that (and I’m almost 30… yikes). Fave movie – Hocus Pocus! When I saw that you included it in the give-away, I did a happy dance! :)

  211. says

    Love the swag!! Everything’s adorable. :)

    So…..
    Favorite Halloween candy: Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins, and bite size Kit Kat’s
    Favorite Halloween costume? Tie between when I was the Cat in the Hat and when the hubby and I dressed as the Blue Barracudas from Legends of the Hidden Temple
    Favorite Halloween movie: Definitely Hocus Pocus….I quote that movie YEAR ROUND. <3

  212. Carolyn says

    My favourite candy is any of the bite sized chocolate bars.This year I might have to let my little ones have some! Last year my 18 months old walked around our neighborhood in the cutest dragon costume ever. It had wings and a tail – so cute! And there is no beating It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.

  213. Elizabeth Rodkey says

    Snickers, even though it’s not specific to Halloween; I was always a witch for Halloween, my fav; Halloween is the BEST Halloween movie.

  214. Candace Carlson says

    Favorite Halloween candy: Hershey Chocolate Bar
    My favorite costume: Cowgirl
    I don’t have a favorite Halloween movie but I love the TV Special, “It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”

  215. says

    My favorite Halloween candy is: #1 mini Mars bars and #2 candy corn! These treats are so tempting to me that I will only purchase them the day before Halloween, or I will consume the entire package. My favorite costume as a wee trick-or-treater was my “I Dream of Jeannie” costume made for me by my Mom =) My favorite costume as an adult was when I was 19 and dressed like a sexy french maid and got a cute boy to notice me. We’ve been married 20 years this year =)

  216. Tracy says

    Favorite candy: when I was little we had a very tight knit neighborhood so we got lots of homemade stuff (cookies, candies, cupcakes) that was ok to eat and my favorite was always my mom’s caramel apples and pink cinnamon popcorn balls.
    Favorite costume: I have an undertaker costume I put together years ago and add to each year I wear it.
    Favorite movie: Bell Book and Candle.

  217. says

    Favorite Halloween candy? … It’s not ‘Halloweeny’, but I’m a complete junkie for Reeses Peanut Butter cups!

    Favorite Halloween costume? Vampire… NOT the pretty, sparkly ones!!! C’mon, get gory – Halloween only comes once a year!

    Favorite Halloween movie? Hellraiser! Any of them! All of them!

  218. Nicole says

    I love the candy corn pumpkins, did you know you can get them all by themselves? SOOOOO good. Also any fun sized candy bar, fun sized of course means eat a bunch at once. Any horror movie is a good around Halloween.

  219. says

    Favorite costume: Sexy Chewbacca (Google it, for real. If I could lose about 30 pounds, I would totally wear it.)
    Favorite candy: the candy corn for the chocolate-y ends
    Favorite Halloween movie: Hocus Pocus, interestingly enough. I was a kid when it first came out, and I watch it at least once a year.

  220. Selena L. says

    This package was made for me! My favorite Halloween candy is of course candy corn – it’s the king of Halloween themed candy. My favorite costume was Tinkerbelle. And Hocus Pocus is the be all end all Halloween movie. No Halloween season is complete without it.

  221. Rita says

    I really look forward to candy corn since its the only time I have it.
    Favorite costume was not mine but when I saw someone dressed as two face. The makeup was just incredible.
    No favorite movie, but I always love those scary movie marathons.

  222. says

    My favorite Halloween Candy are the spooky lip pops, I’ve already bought and ate 2 and it’s only the first week of Ocotber. My favorite Halloween Costume is probably going to be my costume this year, I’m going as Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas. I can’t wait to wear it to Disney’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. My favorite Halloween Movie is a tie between any of the Disney Channel Halloweentown movies or Rocky Horror Picture Show (which I watched for the first time last Halloween, and have decided to make it a tradition every Halloween night). :) I love the blog, it’s so enjoyable to read when I’m having a bad day at work!

  223. says

    I love candy corn, but Reese’s pieces and Starbursts are the dangerous candy in this house. We eat them all month long. My best-ever costume was Harley Quinn, which I may reprise this year if nothing else crops up in the next few days. And every Halloween we watch Nightmare Before Christmas, it’s pretty much the best Halloween movie ever.

  224. Tiffany S. says

    My favorite candy would have to be twix candy bars! I love them so much that I’ve even dedicated various ways to eat them. I always eat the top layer of chocolate and caramel first and then nibble away on the crunchy cookie part…I know…I’m weird. ^-^
    My favorite costume would have to be…a big huge strawberry!
    I have a fetish for strawberries…
    My favorite movie to watch around Halloween time would have to be the Halloweentown series!
    Of course, I wouldn’t say no to Arthur’s Perfect Christmas.

  225. Megan says

    I always associate “The Craft” with Halloween because I watched it on Halloween for the first time at a friend’s birthday party.

  226. Frances Rose says

    Candy: I’m probably the only person in the world that liked Smarties. I used to pretend they were pills. Although, those little candy pumpkins are quite tasty. It has to be something that you don’t eat any other time of the year. :)
    Costume: For some reason, I was always a gypsy. I’m not sure if that was an easy costume to make or I just wanted to pretend I had pierced ears until I actually got them.
    Favorite movie: The original “Night of the Living Dead” because it was so bad and had the potential to really happen. I like “Shaun of the Dead” now for the opposite reasons.

    On a side note, I’m new to your site and I love your posts. You are very talented and it’s fun to see what new & creative thing you will make.

  227. Anita Sera says

    Fav candy: chocolate or yoghurt covered raisins, dates, almonds… basically anything covered with chocolate or yoghurt :)
    Fav Halloween costume: the witchy outfit I wore last year! I felt awsome!
    Fav Halloween movie: Practical Magic (I know it’s not really about Halloween or scary stuff, but I just love this movie and it’s my official October movie)

  228. says

    Fav candy: It’s a tossup between chocolate covered marshmallows and the sticky caramel apple pops.
    Fav costume: The time my mother dressed me up a beetlejuice – a movie that I ADORED, despite being far too young to watch it. ;)
    Fav movie: I’m going to switch this up to TV and say the Simpson’s Halloween Specials. I wait patiently for it all year.

  229. says

    my all time favorite candy most be nerds, like who don’t like it?. you cna say that i’m pretty addicated to it, but i try to saty away from it for now. my favorite costume will be am elf sitting on a masroom, my mom made for me when i was about 3 years old. my favorite halloween movie is the nightmare before christmas (:

  230. Paige says

    Hello! my very favorite Halloween candy is the gummy faces on sticks they come out with. You know like witches, frankenstein. my piano teacher used to have them for us. My favorite costume is a piratey one, and the best halloween movie is Casper the friendly ghost :).

  231. Drew B. says

    Reeses!

    I like dressing up as a pirate! That or a he-man!

    I love the Nightmare Before Christmas. It’s my wife’s favorite!

  232. Molly says

    Candy: Twix
    Halloween outfit: Marry Poppins and Bert
    Fav. Movie: Harry Potter and My fair Lady (fun right!! but I always watch it this time of year) I have never seen Hocus Pocus in my life I have no idea what ya’ll are talking bout.

  233. Gianna Patton says

    I seriously love this giveaway! Halloween is my absolute #1 holiday !! =)

    My favorite Halloween candy are the molasses ‘Halloween Kisses’ (which nobody else seems to like around my neighborhood *Boo!*). My favorite costume so far has been my Alice in Wonderland (or maybe it was Vegas?) costume last year! My favorite non-scary Halloween movie is “Nightmare before Christmas” – favorite scary one is “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” (original) :)))))

    g_patton@hotmail.com

  234. Jessica M. says

    favorite Halloween candy? Anything with peanuts or almonds. Snickers, M&M’s, Almond Joy etc
    favorite Halloween costume? My favorite costume as a kid was when I was dressed as a girl Super Hero (I dont remember if I was Wonder Woman or Super Girl). And the best costume I’ve seen was when my nephews went as KISS band members.
    Favorite Halloween movie? The Nightmare Before Christmas! we watch it like every Oct and at least once again during December. Other movies include Hocus Pocus, Casper, some zombie movies, and also Young Frankenstein is a great one we watch every October.

  235. Jamie says

    Favorite Halloween Candy – Candy Corn
    Favorite Costume – Witch
    Favorite Halloween movie – This is hard to pick since I love most Halloween movies I see but I would have to say my all time favorite is The Adventures of Ichabod Crane also known as Sleepy Hallow.

  236. says

    My favorite Halloween candy would be whoppers and hot tamales (I loved it when I first tasted them).

    My first and only Halloween costume, I used my own chef jacket and made myself looking a dead/corpse chef. Haha. We rarely celebrate Halloween here in the Philippines. I get to taste it twice I think, once when my friend invited me on their Halloween party on their village and second when I lived over a year on my relatives back in the States. I really had fun with those memories though, I get to give the candies out to kids and adults (who are older than me) when I was there.

  237. says

    My favorite Halloween candy is Candy Corn, which they sadly don’t sell where I live :/ My fave Halloween costume that I’ve never actually worn is zombie. I really must rectify this! And I don’t really have a favorite movie, as I like to pick new (or old that I haven’t watched) gore/horror/halloween themed movies (at least 3) and watch them on Halloween while having something specially baked and decorated for the occasion! :)

  238. Kristina says

    I always loved getting Reeses peanut butter cups in my trick-or-treat bag, so now I stock up on those every year to hand out to the kiddies, (and eat several in the process).
    I love dressing up as a gypsy; layers and shawls and bells, what a blast!
    I wait every year to go to the local playhouse to watch Rocky Horror Picture Show on the big screen and live! Who doesn’t love watching first-timers being paraded on stage with lipstick “V”s on their foreheads and throwing toast at the screen!?

  239. Petra says

    Favorite Halloween candy is anything sour or chocolate. Preferable Shockers or Hershey’s Cookies and Cream!

    When I was 8 my mother made me a Pikachu outfit (she always homemade my costumes) that was super legit. All the girls in my class thought I was super weird but the boys were cool with it and I just can’t hide my love of Pokemon!

    Best Halloween-ish movie has got to be Sean of the Dead. I’m not much for scary movies but it is just so funny I can’t resist!

  240. Kelli says

    My favorite Halloween candy is Reeses Peanut Butter cups especially when they’ve been shaped into spooky pumpkin or ghost shapes. One Halloween when I was a kid, I was Dracula’s bride and even won a prize for best costume which was pretty cool. I love all kinds of scary movies and always try and watch a whole bunch in the lead up to Halloween. Beetlejuice is a top favorite but I always have a soft spot for Garfield’s Halloween special.

  241. Jessica says

    Hi! I’m a long time lurker, who has baked several of your recipes: they’re great! Loved the orange layer cake :-)

    In the Netherlands Halloween is not as big as in the US, but more and more people decorate for it.
    My favourite Halloween candy is anything chocolate: can’t go wrong.
    My favourite costume: when I was little, I once dressed as Snow White, and everyone (including me) loved it!
    My favourite Halloween movie: Beetlejuice, great and weird.

  242. Rosa says

    I have to agree with you – I LOVE October! The weather is finally cooling down a bit, Halloween is coming, which means Thanksgiving, Christmas, and my husband’s birthday are all around the corner (poor guy was born a week before Christmas so he gets gypped with presents being combined for both from his family growing up, so I make sure we celebrate both and he gets presents for both), and this year, our little one is old enough (and walking!!) to wear a costume and go trick-or-treating! :-)

    1. Favorite candy – it’s a tie between the caramel Twix and peanut butter Twix, mmmm…so good, and once you’re done with one chocolate-y cookie-ness, you have one more!
    2. Favorite costume – I went as Cho Chang with the school uniform, cloak, book bag, quill, and wand!
    3. Favorite Halloween movie – I love Nightmare Before Christmas!

    Can’t wait to see what other fun, beautiful, Halloween-y stuff you have in store for your website! Thanks for all your posts! I love looking at them!

  243. Nadine A. says

    Hi,
    my favorit Candy: A cake with cream witch is colourd in green, really green…
    My favorit costume: undead scool girl
    My favorit film: i love films :-) i look very very often films an i dont have a favorit film

    cooler Blog :-)

  244. Tegan says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? Flavored Tootsie Rolls. Preferably the red (cherry) ones. I pick them out of the large mix bags if left alone with the candy for too long.
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? Last year I dressed up with my husband as Charlie Brown and Lucy and it made for some great pictures.
    What is your favorite Halloween movie? Definitely The Shining. I watch it every year around Halloween without fail.

  245. lisa says

    I love the resses shaped pumpkins
    Favorite costume…any from when I was little. A witch probably
    Favorite movie…Hocus Pocus is my fav too. Love that movie!

  246. Natasha says

    First, I must start by saying that I absolutely love your blog, your pictures are so cute that I just can’t help myself from trying the recipe myself. Keep doing what you love!

    As for the Halloween post, I completely agree that Halloween is the best holiday. I tend to start celebrating half way through September. Haunted houses and corn mazes start early and in the Northeastern states its already perfect sweater and cider weather.

    My favorite Halloween candy has to be Twix. I’m a sucker for the chocolate and caramel combo. A graham cracker covered with Nutella and drizzled with the caramel from your caramel apple recipe is a great second though, I made your recipe with a small amount of maple syrup to give it a nice warm flavor!

    One year for Halloween I dressed up as a Smashing Pumpkin. My mother made a big orange pumpkin dress stuffed with balloons and music note cut-outs for the face. On a wreath of leaves headband she wrote names of some of their greatest songs. She even made a pocket where I could put speakers and blast some Smashing Pumpkins while trick-or-treating!

    I am a scary movie junky and this season tends to bring lots of hide-under-the-blanket movie nights with my friends. One of the scariest of my childhood, that still gets me, is The Amityville Horror (1979 version, sorry Ryan Reynolds…)

  247. Stephanie says

    I absolutely LOVE October, because you’re right — it’s the gateway to months of celebrations!

    My favorite Halloween candy are mellowcreme pumpkins…I can’t get enough of them! My favorite Halloween costume was when I dressed as Lady Gaga, complete with disco stick. And my favorite Halloween movie is Sleepy Hollow…Johnny Depp + scariness? Awesome.

  248. Tiffany says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? Caramel apple pops!
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? I haven’t really dressed up in years…and I can’t remember many costumes from my childhood. I think I’ll just go with a black cat. I still have a pair of cat ears!
    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? I don’t have a fave, but I do enjoy Hocus Pocus!

  249. says

    I love all of your wonderful goodies! You’ve been a great inspiration!
    My favorite candy – Whoppers
    Favorite costume – 10 years old, I was a gypsie!
    Current favorite movie – Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin, only because the 5 year old love it.

  250. Betty says

    Favorite candy: Reese’s or 100 Grand.
    Favorite costume: My senior year of high school, my friends and I went as literary characters. We had Captain Ahab from Moby Dick, Ivan Denisovitch from One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch, and I went as Hester Prynne from the Scarlet Letter.
    Favorite movies: Around Halloween, I always watch The Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus, The Stuff, and Halloween.

  251. Morgan says

    Favorite candy….I love mixing candy corn with salted peanuts in a bowl…it’s a great snack because its sweet and salty (like a payday) and guests go crazy over it!
    Favorite costume…every year growing up I was a clown. My mom would always paint my face and spray color my hair. It was such a fun costume and just another memory I’ll always keep!
    Favorite Halloween movie…It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown…a classic!!!

  252. says

    My favorite candy is caramel covered apples with nuts. My favorite costume was when my boyfriend went as the Stay-Puft Marshmallowman from Ghostbusters, and I went as a Ghostbuster. My favorite Halloween movie is Arsenic and Old Lace. We watch it every year.

  253. Rae Marie says

    DIEING over all of this.
    *Favorite Halloween candy: To be honest, I’m not sure. I think I’d have to say the fruit-flavored popcorn bites. They aren’t very Halloween-y persay, but that’s the only time of the year I’m able to find them!
    *Favorite Halloween costume: Hm. I really enjoyed being Minnie Mouse as a child… But one year I was a giant green M&M and I think it takes the cake. It’s funny, because I originally hated it, but after going out trick-or-treating in it? I loved it. I got so many compliments for it. ;)
    *Favorite Halloween movie: It’s a tie between ‘Don’t Look Under The Bed’, and ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’. I look forward to watching them both every year!

  254. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy?
    Chocolate Orange cupcakes – the dark chocolate and orange colour are perfect for Halloween… topped with a spooky orange icing character.

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume?
    I dressed as Moaning Myrtle (from Harry Potter) once, although not a very distinctive costume, so I still had to explain to everyone who I was! I quite enjoyed talking in a raspy high pitched voice all evening.

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?
    Sleepy Hollow is a wonderful film, it’s got a place in my heart forever! For me as a young teen it was terrifying, and now it’s just great fun.

  255. says

    Hmm…my favorite Halloween candy would have to be either Reese’s or Nerds – those little boxes are just too cute! I was a computer in kindergarten – complete with a keyboard and mouse! That is still my favorite costume I’ve ever had. Oddly enough, I have all the same favorite movies as you! It’s so hard to pick which of the three is my absolute favorite though. I have been looking for a copy of Hocus Pocus forever and haven’t been able to find it! Hope this is my chance!

  256. Guin says

    Fave Halloween Candy: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. The holiday ones: pumpkins, christmas trees, easter eggs, etc. are always the best for some reason. I think it’s the ratio of peanut butter filling to chocolate or maybe it’s just the fun shape.

    Fave Halloween Costume: I pretty much always dress up as some form of vampire. I’ve never done it but I gotta say I love a good Lichtenstein costume and I once saw an amazing Rainbow Brite.

    Fave Halloween Movie: I gotta go with Nightmare Before Christmas. I saw it in the theatre when it originally came out and again when they put it out in 3D, which I had to drive about 100 miles to find a theatre that was playing it.

    Love the blog so much. Your Harry Potter and Doctor Who treats inspired me to get into baking. Keep up the amazing and inspiring work. <3

  257. says

    Okay, I totally agree with you about October. The fall is always full of fun things and crazy weather, good food and lots of family.

    Favourite Halloween candy: The mini chocolate bars, especially Crispy Crunch and Wonderbar. Dangerous.
    Favourite Halloween costume: A fallen angel, pretty and dark.
    Favourite Halloween movie: My daughter is now old enough for Harry Potter and Pirates of the Carribean. Our past few weeks have been full of wizards and pirates, which are inspiring her Halloween this year. So I’d go with those as my current favourites.

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?

  258. Robin says

    Favorite Candy: Candy Corn Hands down!
    Favorite Costumer: Pirate
    Favorite Movie: Family appropriate Hocus Pocus….Adult appropriate: Halloween (The original) and actually the whole series!

  259. Christy says

    My favorite candy is caramel candy corn, or just the Brach’s caramels. Ooh, and the Hershey’s Kisses with Caramel. Pretty much anything caramel related! My favorite costume ever was the year I dressed as “the 80’s”, crimped hair, heavy eyeshadow, the works. And I have no favorite Halloween movie–nothing scary or creepy is allowed on my TV if I know it in advance. I’m a scaredy cat!

  260. Faith says

    Favorite Halloween movie is a tie between “It’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”, and “Zombieland”. I love pumpkins and zombies fascinate and scare me all at the same time! Favorite Halloween costume: a mummy outfit which was basically toilet paper that I had my sister wrap around me. I’m sure I look hilarious, and I also inadvertently tp our whole neighborhood since I left loose bits of toilet paper at each stop…Love your post. Keep the inspiration and fun coming!

    Favorite candy would be just about anything chocolate. Favorite Halloween costume would be the Mickey and Minnie costumes my parents made when I was a kid. I think “Shaun of the Dead” might be my most recent favorite for a Halloween type movie.

  262. says

    Fave candy: reeses pieces or white chocolate oreo hersheys bar!
    Fave costume: when I dressed up as a gangster/thug/rapper two years ago and won at my work party!
    Fave movie: You just brought back great memories of Hocus Pocus… LOVED that movie! But seriously I love all scary movies… Nightmare on Elm Streets, Halloweens, anything! I’m all about the scary movie marathons :)

  263. Danielle says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? My favorite candy is a Milky Way, or Twizzlers, or gummy bears…well I guess I have quite a few!

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? My favorite costume had to be when my mom made a princess dress when I was in 2nd grade. I loved it and couldn’t wait to show all my friends. It usually snows on Halloween or is really cold so most costumes revolve around getting lots of layers underneath.

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? I love Hocus Pocus!!! But I don’t own it!! Would love to win it!
    I also like the Nightmare Before Christmas.

  264. Amber T says

    Favorite candy is tootsie rolls. Yum. And Reese Peanut Butter Cups – nothing beats those. And Halloween is the start of the Charlie Brown holiday shows! :) And pirate costumes are always fun.

  265. Krystal says

    My favorite Halloween candy has always been candy corn, and my favorite costume of all time was my jelly bean costume from when I was about 5 or 6. My mom cut holes out of a clear trash bag for my legs and arms and filled the trash bag (with me in it) with small different colored balloons. I hate scary movies, but I make an exception every once and a while for Friday the 13th. It just seems to click with Halloween, and it’s older now so it’s easier to laugh at rather than be really scared!

  266. anastassia says

    hum… my favourite halloween candy is anything chocolate. my favourite halloween costume was a princess costume my mom made. my daughter is going to wear it this year. and my favourite halloween movie is… not sure maybe the witches. i like all of the kid halloween movies, not the scary adult ones. i’m a wimp.

  267. Coral says

    Candy-Mini Almond Joys
    Costume-Martian-Head-To-Toe Green-my fav color!
    Movie-It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown-it is filled with childhood wonders :-)

  268. says

    what a huge bag of awesome!
    my favourite costume is a giraffe costume that my mom and i made last year :) my favourite candy would be the mixed boxes of chocolate bars (then i dont have to choose just one) and my favourite halloween movie by far is hocus pocus!

  269. says

    Butterfingers is definitely my favorite, I maaay have already gone through two bags this season, hehe. I really enjoy Steampunk costumes, and hopefully I’ll have enough money one day to make my own. And I’m a huge fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas. I’m not sure if that counts more as a Christmas movie than a Halloween one, but I watch it at both holidays:)

  270. Liz A says

    Favorite candy: has to be Heath Bars (mmmmm toffee!).
    Favorite costume: Yellow Submarine – like from the Beatles movie, had a periscope and everything.
    Favorite movie: Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin – just classic Halloween fun

  271. says

    CANDY: Hands down Reeses Pumpkins. I know they’re exactly the same as the Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, but they seem so more festive when they’re pumpkin shaped. So does everything though.

    COSTUME: I was Moonglow from Rainbow Brite. That is my all time favorite costume. It helps that I made everything from scratch myself. My blood, sweat, and tears went into that costume. Not to mention a whole lot of time.

    MOVIE: “Nightmare Before Christmas” has been my go to movie since it was released, I have watched it countless times, own tons of memorabilia, and am not afraid to sing the songs. Bonus, it’s okay to watch it between October and December.

  272. Marta S says

    Hopefully having my little parrotlet will bring me some luck!!
    Favourite Halloween candy has to be candy corn. I mean come on. It would NOT be Halloween without candy corn. It would probably be illegal.
    Favourite costume would have to be my friend’s Queen Elizabeth I costume… corset and frilly neck included :D
    And as for favourite movie, I would say Nightmare before Christmas… it’s part Halloween at least! And it’s a super fun movie, so it wins :)

  273. Katie shultz says

    My favorite Halloween candy (this year at least) would be pretzel m&ms. My favorite costume is all the cute little cupcake costumes I’ve been seeing. My fav Halloween movie is hocus pocus.

  274. Michelle says

    My all time favorite Halloween candy is Reese’s Pumpkins, followed by (of course) candy corn. I mean really? Are there other Halloween candies?

    As for my favorite costume? It was actually one I did as an adult, when I made my own Scarecrow (roughly like Wizard of Oz Scarecrow). I made it all myself, it was a bit rough but I loved how it came out. I have always wished I could duplicate it. On others, I love any costume that actually shows creativity and thought….as opposed to 12 dozen identical, bland princesses. Jazz it up baby and make it yours.

    Favorite Halloween movie is going to seem like a stretch to some because its actually better known for a Christmas song, but I LOVE “Meet Me in St. Louis” with Judy Garland. Very early in the movie is a most wonderful Halloween segment that always makes me long for a simplier time. Of course “Its the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” is also a must see, as is “Hocus Pocus”.

  275. Bri says

    As a Halloween fanatic, I cannot pass up the chance to (hopefully) win a basket devoted to my favorite holiday.

    My favorite Halloween candy would have to be Laffy Taffy. I know it’s not specifically Halloween themed, but I adore taffy, and the bad jokes on the wrappers provide my college friends and I hours of endless fun. We once sat around eating Laffy Taffy and reading all of the jokes and nearly laughed until we passed out.

    My personal favorite Halloween costume actually became a “two-in-one” costume. I was initially a butterfly, which was made up of black sweatpants, a black sweatshirt, and dish rags my mom and I tye-dyed for a school play. I think I was eight at the time, and it was a really warm night (it was eighty something, and I believe you’re familiar with the temperature fluctuations of Minnesota, haha XD), so I took off my sweatshirt and went around with my pillow case of candy as “Santa Claus in training”.

    Hocus Pocus is actually my favorite Halloween movie. I remember watching it with my little sister at our grandma’s house, and the song Sarah sings about spiriting children away still gives me goosebumps fifteen years later. And Bette Midler. I’m actually old enough to appreciate her in other movies now, and I think she’s just the best.

  276. Sam S. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? I love those gummy eyeballs.
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? I love my mermaid costume. Though my Zombie is always good.
    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? Hocus Pocus. I love that movie. I fell in love with it the very first time I saw it. Now I’m excited to share that movie with my daughter.

  277. Lindsey L says

    I just love Bottle Caps. I am not sure if they are even made any longer, but those were my favorite around Halloween time!

  278. Vicki Rintz says

    I love Halloween because my birthday is November 1st and as a kid we often had a costume party to celebrate. I will be 58 this year and I still love Halloween. My favorite costume is one that I made and wore about 10 years ago, and wore again this past year — Cruella DeVille. My husband dressed as a dalmation! My favorite candy is the fun size snickers. I have loved the Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin movie a lot.

  279. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? candy corn…or popcorn balls. My mom used to make those every Halloween and they were awesome!

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? I made my daughter a beautiful Cinderella costume last year, so that’s got to be my favorite (although I will admit that I was totally psyched when she told me she wanted to be a ghost this year! Until she changed her mind and decided she wanted to be a princess. And then a hippo. And now it’s a princess hippo ghost. Aaaacccckkkk!)

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? I guess the Charlie Brown Halloween movie. I’m not much of a movie person.

    Great giveaway!

  280. says

    Oh goodness, I think I would die if I won this giveaway! Halloween is like Christmas to me! It’s my all time favourite holiday! In response to your questions, my favourite Halloween candy are the lollipops called deadheads. They are black with a white skull printed on them and when you lick it blood starts to ooze through the skull. My favourite costume was the year I was Ms. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus when I was 8 and my favourite Halloween movie is Hocus Pocus hands down! You can’t go wrong with the Sanderson Sisters!

  281. Sarah says

    My favorite Halloween candy is black licorice. This year my husband and I are dressing up as Jedi and our 1 year old son will be Yoda, and I’m more excited about these costumes than any I’ve ever had before. My favorite Halloween movie is the Nighmare Before Christmas, because I’m too much of a wimp for the real scary stuff.

  282. Melissa says

    I love Halloween!!!! My favorite candy are the fun size kit-kat bars. Witches with Angelica Houston is the best Halloween movie. My husband and I dress up every year and I think the best costumes we did were two years ago. We were the Mad Hatter and Alice- Disney version-. We put a lot of work into those costumes but it was so much fun. The theme this year is Lily and Herman Munster.

  283. Jasmine says

    My favorite candy are those caramel apple pops, I buy a years worth every October so I don’t run out. Lol
    I watch Practical Magic every Halloween, even thought its not technically a Halloween movie, it feels magical.
    And my favorite costume was one that I never actually got to wear, my best friend went as a belly dancer when I was six and I had to go as a hula girl, but I LOVED her costume.

  284. Jennifer Phelan says

    My favorite Halloween candy is, boringly, candy corns, although I’m usually totally burned out on them well before Halloween. My favorite Halloween costume was a cute Elvis costume I sewed for my son when he was just a wee 2 year old (he’s almost 18 now). He was/is a toehead and getting his hair black was a challenge, to say the least. My favorite Halloween movie is Beetlejuice, for obvious reasons. Second favorite is Edward Scissorhands, for equally obvious reasons (hello, Johnny Depp!).

  285. Jess Glaisher says

    I love halloween but answering the ‘favourite candy’ question is a tricky one, as Halloween is not as big here (in England) as it is in America or my homeland of Ireland (although it is getting bigger!) and there aren’t as many iconic halloween candies as there are elsewhere. In any case, the candy that always reminds me of Halloween is Starburst. Even though the tradition of trick or treating wasn’t done that much where we lived when I was growing up, some kids did do it. We always had sweets in in case they did turn up but a couple of years in a row, the only thing we could find was Starburst. Inevitably, not enough kids came round and starbursts would be hanging around for the rest of the week, making the kitchen more colourful and giving us an excuse to eat them!
    Several times I’ve dressed up as Morticia from the Addams family, quite easy to do but effective! (and how can you not love Morticia?). One year I had my friends round for Halloween fun and frolics and we went to the DVD rental shop to get some scary movies; because of my long black Morticia wig (which covered my usually blonde hair) the people working in there wouldn’t believe that I was the person in the picture on their system! They took some convincing to let us borrow anything, I bet the lady herself wouldn’t have had that problem!
    My favourite halloween movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas. I always love to watch it around halloween, it gets me into the spirit of the holiday – singing ‘this is halloween’ while I make halloween goodies in the kitchen and carve my pumpkin to look like a Jack face!

  286. Rachel Lei says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? fun size Twix!
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? Cleopatra from last year
    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? The Nightmare Before Christmas :)

  287. Ashley says

    Favor halloween candy…toss up between caramels and nibs

    Favorite costume: Mad hatter from Alice in Wonderland

    Favorite movie: Hocus Pocus

  288. Erica says

    I absolutely LOVE Twix and Reeses! YUM! My favorite Halloween costume is one I’ve worn a few times, each year I add or change something : Bellatrix Lestrange. I’m an HP nerd through & through :P My favorite Halloween movie is actually Hocus Pocus. It was tradition for my niece and I to watch it at least a couple times a year :]

  289. Ziona Bates says

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Candy Corn. I buy a bag as soon as it hits the shelves. My favorite costume is anything culturally relevant like a cartoon character or a meme. And I always watch Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin.

  290. Kelsey Lorraine says

    Hmmm… I love homemade Halloween treats. I’d say popcorn balls!
    And as for costume, I am so proud of my middle school costume: I was Spock and my friends were Scotty, Captain Kirk, McCoy and a red shirted man.
    I don’t watch a lot of Halloween movies but maybe Nightmare Before Christmas.
    Though I’m never really sure when is best to watch that movie.

  291. Kaitlyn says

    SO excited for Halloween!
    My favorite candy is Swedish Fish(cuz they’re yummy)
    My favorite costume was a Native American(cuz it was awesome)
    My favorite movie is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone(cuz they always show it on ABC around Halloween)

  292. michele boyer says

    my favorite costume is elphaba – the wicked witch from wicked!!! or anything fro the wizard of oz,
    my favorite candy is reeses pumpkins!!! yummmy.’
    my favorite halloween movie is stepmom. even though it is not a halloween movie they do trick or treat and have a lot of fall scense – but traditional halloween. i love the halloweentown movies!!!

  293. bttrflybabydoll says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy?–I have to have the big reese’s pumpkins. Yum!

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume?–Lately, whatever my kids have decided to be. Only because whatever it is, they make it look so DARN CUTE!!

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?–IT! I just love that movie! It’s not a Halloween movie, but I associate all scary movies with Halloween, and that’s my favorite!

  294. C. says

    I am so excited! I love fall too… The cold weather and falling leaves….

    Anyway, to the point.

    As I was thinking about this, I realized that I have a really hard time choosing my favorite candy. I love chocolate, but also sour candies, and Skittles and Starbursts… I LOVE Reese’s Cups, and Hershey’s chocolate, and gummi worms, and the list goes on and on!

    Favorite costume would have to be when I was a Rubix cube! All the adults could tell right away what I was.

    Finally, we have the complete Charlie Brown DVD set, so we always watch the right ones around the right holidays. I have seen Hocus Pocus at our video rental store, and wanted to get it, but never ended up actuall renting it. It has been on my list, though.

    Hope to win! *fingers crossed*

  295. Hannah Hicks says

    My favorite halloween candy has to be caramel candy corn! It’s the best of both worlds, delicious caramel, and delightful candycorn.
    I would have to say my favorite halloween costume is a dinosaur, even if you have to be more whimsical with it, since they don’t sell adult sized dinosaur costumes, cause dinosaurs are just so cute!
    And my favorite Halloween movie is a tie between Hocus Pocus and A Nightmare Before Christmas, although that is my favorite Christmas movie too.. It covers both holidays!

  296. Michaela says

    I actually have two favorite Halloween candies. The first is candy corn. I have been eating the stuff on Halloween since I got teeth (heck, I bet I would’ve gummed it if my mom had let me have some before then). I am picky about my candy corn though; it has to be Brach’s brand. My second favorite candy for the season is actually Peeps. I know that most people associate Peeps with Easter, but they make cute little pumpkins, cats and ghosts this time of year. I especially love the chocolate dipped pumpkins; chocolate + marshmallow = perfect little indulgence!

    I am usually a witch for Halloween. The hats are pretty cheap, and it gives me an excuse to go buy a new LBD and black pumps every few years.

    I don’t really watch many movies (I just hate sitting for that long), but I do love to watch It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown this time of year.

  297. Lydia says

    My favorite halloween candy is Candy Corn (i only eat this around Halloween time, so it wouldn’t be fair to say M&M’s since I eat that year round :) I love when people go all out in dressing up…..I never do. I love to watch funny halloween movies, not spooky ones because I won’t sleep for DAYS!

  298. Mallory says

    OMG! October is awesome!
    The candy has got to be suckers. I’m a sucker for candy on a stick. Throughout my childhood we had some freakin’ fantastic costumes (all hand made by my mom, SO love her!) but I think my favourite had to be the one where I was a princess riding a horse. Upper body was dressed as a princess with my legs as the horse’s hind legs and the horse body with front legs, and princess legs sewn on the sides.
    My go-to Halloween movie is either The Amityville Horror or Hocus Pocus; those witches get me every time.

  299. Joan says

    Favorite candy is Cracker Jacks. Always liked the prizes.
    Favorite costume was Bugs Bunny.
    Favorite movies are the Halloweentown movies on ABC Family.

  300. Amy Clayburn says

    My favorite candy would be popcorn balls (if that is considered a candy!). Favorite costume was when my 6 year old was a hot dog. It ROCKED! And lastly – always gotta watch the Charlie Brown Halloween show!!

  301. Erin says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? Candy Corn
    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? Nurse
    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? American Psycho

  302. Tracy says

    My current favorite candy are Milk Duds, though when I was a kid it was Milky Ways. :) My best costume to date was Princess Lolly (from Candyland). And my favorite Halloween-ish movies are the Nightmare Before Christmas, Psycho, and/or Clue. I don’t know why I associate Clue with Halloween, but I do…

  303. says

    Goodness, look at all these comments!
    My favorite Halloween candy is, without a doubt, candy corn. Classic and oh so addictive. I’ve already been through over five medium size bags of them and completely forgot to buy more while I was out shopping. Sad…
    My favorite Halloween costume is a skeleton, or anything else fairly traditional. I really look cute/classic/whimsical, I’m not so crazy for super gruesome/bloody costumes.
    Every year at Halloween since it first came out on VHS (yes, we got it the year it came out…I even remember where we bought it even though I was only about 5) is Hocus Pocus…I was quite suprised to see it on your post actually. I also watch Monster House every year now since it came out, old Looney Toons Halloween-ish episodes, the very classic spooky Disney shorts, the original Halloween movie, and of course The Great Pumpkin :)
    I just have to say, those little bowls are absolutely adorable! I wish I could find little things like that around here, very jealous!
    Happy birthday/Halloween! :)

  304. Lee Ann says

    Favorite Halloween Candy… The Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins… Yummy!
    Favorite Halloween Costume… I have two… The year I dressed my babies up as a cat and mouse… Cute!!
    Favorite Halloween Movie… I’ve watched It’s A Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown since I was a kid, and as a teenager Friday the 13th scared the wits out of me…

  305. Maryjo says

    What a fun giveaway!! My two favorite candies are Whoppers, and the boring Smarties. I used to get my siblings Smarties because they didn’t like them.
    My favorite costume was a homemade she-devil that I made the first year I was dating my first husband. I even dyed my hair red :)
    My favorite movie, O.K. this shows my age, the original 1978 Halloween with Jamie Lee Curtis.

  306. Julie says

    Favorite Halloween candy as a kid – Reese’s Peanut butter cups, they were like Halloween candy gold! Favorite costume would be a butterfly. Favorite Halloween Movie is Hocus Pocus.

  307. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy?
    Okay, I have a favorite Halloween treat but it is not candy. It is Halloween Oreos.

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? My favorite costume was when I was the web mistress.

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)? I love Hocus Pocus too. I should totally buy it.

  308. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy?
    A hard one…I do love me some candy corn, but then how can I resist caramel corn balls, or peeps…hmmm….I’ll say…candy corn/pumpkins as you only really get them one time during the year.

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume?
    I’d have to say my pirate costume. I just put together some of my dad’s old stuff ( a vest and an eyepatch) with some of my own clothes and a pirate shirt from walmart. :)

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?

    God that’s a tough one…I want to say Nightmare Before Christmas, but I love Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown, and a few others too…granted I haven’t seen them in awhile, but I remember I loved them as a child.

  309. says

    Favorite costume: Alice in Wonderland. I even wore it to school when I was little. Like… on days that weren’t Halloween.

    Favorite candy: Dots. <3

    Favorite Halloween movie: I really feel like Harry Potter should count. But if not… Halloweentown.

  310. Lisa says

    My favorite Halloween candy would have to be those orange and black wrapped Peanutbutter thingies. I’m usually Not a fan of peanut butter but I’ve always liked those and this is the only time of year you can find them.

    My favorite costume for myself would be my Pirate/Wench Gown.
    For my kids we found a Stitch (Lilo & Stitch) cosutume thas has been out on Halloween on one of our 2 boys the last 6 yrs. It’s held up great and there’s never been a duplicate. My other fave was a fuzzy Pink Flamingo costume I made for our youngest daughter. This yr will be it’s 3rd yr out.

    While I love hearing Bette rock I’ve Put a Spell On You…
    My all time go-to Halloween movie would have to be the Johnny Depp/ Tim Burton version of Sleepy Hollow. It’s just not Halloween without it

  311. says

    Pretty much anything chocolate

  312. Dianne says

    What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? I made my niece a flapper costume one year when she was three.

    And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie? It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and Hocus Pocus. I used to watch this with my niece when she was really little and for some reason she called it Hocus Focus.

  313. says

    My favorite candy are, without a doubt, Rockets! The little pressed-sugar discs wrapped in cellophane, since not every country calls them Rockets, I guess. My favorite costume was last year, I got a pair of scrubs and went as a zombie nurse – it was so good, my young kids freaked out when I came down the stairs and started running away and screaming. Can’t wait to do it again this year! And favorite movie is definitely It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! I hunted down a copy on DVD a couple years ago so our kids could watch it, it’s just that good.

  314. linda says

    candy corn is my all time fav!
    my grandmother’s hand made for me princess costume…eons ago!
    my all time fav is not halloween- ish…i just like it..the holiday w/diaz & winslet!

  315. Jeanne ODonnell says

    My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn. My favorite costume was when my husband and best friends all dressed up as the flintstones! I do not like scary movies so I do not watch movies around Halloween!

  316. says

    Aww, this is so nice from you! I’m not sure if I can entry to this contest, because I’m from Spain, but it doesn’t matter, gonna tell you my favourites:
    1. Favourite candy? Oh gosh. This is so hard… I remember once my mom bought me a little pumpkim toy full of sweets, candies, chocolates, and mooooooreeeee. Hehe! I ate all the cadies, but still have that pumpkim decorating my room. I think that “sweet” pumpkim is my fav. candy (I love eating, I can choose).
    2. Favourite costume? This is a EASY one. When I was 3 or 4 years old, I dressed up (well, my mom did) as a witch. you can think…a witch? genius! But no, I promise you (I really do, with all my heart) it is the MOST beautiful witch fancy dress you’ll ever seen. I went to school that day, and everyone was laughing and telling me “witch”, so I cried, and I didn’t want to know anything about that dress. But a year ago or so, I found it, and I was the happiest person on Earth. I’m thinking of making a bigger dress like it for this Halloween.
    3. Favourite movie? My favourite Halloween movie all the time is “Casper Meets Wendy”. It’s not scary at all,I know, but I watch EVERY Halloween. I don’t like scarier movies, lol.
    Thank you for reading! (:

  317. Donann Green says

    Favorite candy ~ any mini chocolate bar……so not good for the waistline
    Favorite costume ~ 2 years ago I made costumes and props for myself and two friends….we were Little Dead Riding Hood, Moldilocks, and Malice in Wonderland
    Favorite movie ~ is a tie between anything horror, Beetlejuice and Practical Magic

  318. Talia says

    1. Milky Ways! Kit Kats! I intentionally buy lots of York Peppermint Patties (which I hate) so I won’t eat the whole bowl of candy before kids even get to my door.
    2. When the other girls in the neighborhood loved to dress as pretty pretty princesses, I loved uglifying myself up as a witch, complete with long green fingers and a warty green nose.
    3. Beatlejuice, Beatlejuice, Beatlejuice!….uh oh.

  319. Ashley says

    My favorite costume has to be when I dressed up as Snooki from jersey shore. My favorite candy are those carmello bars, and I love to watch Elvira, hocus locus, and beetle juice!

  320. Yolanda says

    Favorite candy ~ M&M’s
    Favorite costume ~ My son has a skeleton pair of PJ’s that has halloween candy in the stomach – Candy Corn, Smarties, etc. SO CUTE! Althought any costume on an infant is adorable
    Favorite movie ~ The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

  321. Debs says

    Favorite candy- carmel apple lollipops- mmm mmm good!
    Favorite costume- Dorothy
    Favorite Movie- Hocus Pocus!!! It’s a staple from my childhood!

  322. says

    My favorite halloween candy is by far, mellowcremes. They’re the best. It’s like a flavored candy corn! And Brach’s makes some sweet shapes too. Though, I also enjoy the wax vampire fangs that taste like cherry and when you chew them turn into a really weird bubblegum.

    My favorite costume I’ve ever had was the year I was Lady Rowena (yes, from Ivanhoe). My mom spent months on a traditional Medieval costume. It was purple and beautiful and had a cape and a circlet thing and just fantastic. I was nine.

    My favorite Halloween movie is Hocus Pocus, because you have to stick with the classics.

    • says

      Duplicate comment? Noooo!

      Fave halloween candy, Reeses PB pumpkins. mmmm

  323. Chantelle says

    I just found your website a few minutes ago, thanks to Stumble.com and Oh my god! How did I live without all the great things I’ve seen so far!?! I’ve already bookmarked a bunch and can’t wait to give them a try. To be honest, for this giveaway I kinda maybe almost wanted to cheat ;) and give each question an entry to up my chances but noooo I’m loving you site too much to do that!! So here they are:
    1) Gummi Brains: they got a berry favor, a mix of colors (pinks, reds, blue, white), and of course are shaped like BRAINS!!
    2) Disco diva when I was 10. I was fierce!! Peace and love people!!
    3) I want to put Nightmare before Christmas but I watch that year round :) So for Halloween, no joke, I always watch Hocus Pocus. Its on every year on ABC family (so I don’t own it) and I always have to watch it at least once.
    Happy Birthday and Happy Halloween!!!

  333. Alyssa says

    My favorite Halloween candies are chocolate! (reese’s, twix, almond joy, heath, etc) My favorite Halloween costume was when I was an evil fairy in high school, and my favorite Halloween movie would definitely also be Hocus Pocus, or now that my boyfriend and I watched the original Child’s Play right before we started dating last year and is going to be a tradition, that one :)

  334. Amanda says

    My favorite Halloween, or anytime, candy is a Kit Kat. I could probably just eat the whole bag. (I miss crispy M&Ms though!)
    My favorite Halloween movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas!!! LOVE IT
    As for a costume, I always love dressing up like a pirate. There are always so many ways to personalize it, layers, accessories, etc. And there are swords! Arrrr!
    I do love the punny/play on word costumes too though :)

  335. Arturo says

    My favorite Halloween candy is anything as long as there’s chocolate incorporated!
    My favorite costume was the one I wore last year. I was Justin Beiber, it was so much fun.
    And finally, my favorite Halloween movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas. I see everyone watches Hocus Pocus, I’m sad to say I have never watched it! I will definitely watch it once I win this fabulous stash (fingers crossed)!

  336. Kat H says

    Favorite Halloween candy – Reese’s Pumpkins
    Favorite Halloween costume – Hmm, tiger for the facepaint, witch as a standard (and because I have a good selection of hats), but my favorite is a devil, because I have a great pair of horns. On other people, it would be this one person that trick or treats as Michael Myers at the zoo every year. He stays in character the whole time… very creepy.
    Favorite Halloween movie – Jack Skellington rocks, but my fave is Halloween H20 because of the scene where Jamie Lee grabs the axe and goes looking for her brother.

  337. Michelle L says

    Favorite Halloween movie – Beetlejuice, I love it!!!

  338. says

    What is your favorite Halloween candy? What was/is your favorite Halloween costume? And/or what is your favorite Halloween movie (even if it’s not specifically Halloween, but you always watch it around Halloween)?

    My favorite halloween candy is reese’s peanut butter cups. It’s usually the only time I crave peanut butter and chocolate. My favorite halloween costume is my “Lady Monotone” costume I wore when I was in a play, I plan on being that this year. The best part of it was everything going on with my hair! And my favorite movie to watch at Halloween time is the Harry Potter series :) Nothing better then witches and wizards (can’t wait for 11-11!!!)

  339. Nikki says

    Favorite Halloween Candy has gotta be those little bite size snickers bars that my daughters get when they trick or treat…This Momma has to sneak one every now and then..lol
    My Favorite Halloween Costume was when was Miss Piggy..lol I was about 7..You can’t get any cuter than that!
    Our favorite Halloween shows….are Charlie Brown’s Halloween Special and the Legend of Sleepy Hollow cartoon : ) My husband and our 3 girls make a big deal of it every year…We pop some popcorn and turn off the lights and we all laugh at all the same parts every year…It’s something we look forward too

  340. says

    The first Halloween candy that I would eat from my lovely plunder would almost indefinitely be almond joy’s but strangely enough I have never bought an actual almond joy candy bar.
    My favorite costume, as of now, is my Rapunzel costume that I’m currently sewing. It makes me so happy every time I put it on.
    My favorite “Halloweenish” movie’s to watch would be the Harry Potter one’s. They put me in that perfect rebellious without really doing anything bad mindset, which is exactly what Halloween is about.

    im already a fb liker and would looove to win for no other reason than to taste candy corn!

  343. Jewels says

    My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn. It’s the only halloween candy my son won’t eat!
    Dressing up as a witch was always the best costume. My mom always told me if I was going to act like a witch, I may as well dress the part once a year! hahahahaha
    My favorite Halloween movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas. It’s not technically shown around Halloween, but that’s when I prefer to watch it. The music is great, and the story is fantastic! I just LOVE Sally!!!

  344. Chelsea says

    My favorite Halloween candy would be anything chocolate, or of course the traditional candy corn and mallowcreme pumpkins. My favorite Halloween costume would be a witch or anything scary…I don’t get being something “cute” for Halloween! I love Hocus Pocus and also The Nightmare before Christmas! :)

    Favorite Movie: Halloweentown on Disney Channel! It’s just so fun!

  346. Erika says

    Fun contest! Let’s see, my favorite candy is the bane of many peoples’ existence: those molasses/peanut butter chews. My most fun Halloween costume ever was an undead prostitute at a bar (we were doing a haunted house for charity) with a long black slit-to-there dress, long wild hair, … and makeup that made it look like my eye was out of it’s socket and hanging down my face. And I love Hocus Pocus!

  347. Ladytink_534 says

    I love those candy apple lollipops that I haven’t been able to find this year :(
