Hauling home a bag full of candy was the highlight of Halloween when I was a kid. As we got older, our plans turned into pop culture costume contests and drinking jungle juice out of a spooky cauldron.
While we can certainly still enjoy the same candies from our childhood, why not try these nine more adult-appropriate treats that'll make Halloween night a little more exciting?
Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans
Details: Beanboozled is a fun challenge designed by Jelly Belly where identical jelly beans are either a delicious or disgusting flavour. You won't know until you taste them. They make a fun activity at your next Halloween party. While you can share these with kids, they probably won't like you very much for it.
Jelly Belly Fiery Five Challenge
Details: Made by the same evil geniuses at Jelly Belly, the Fiery Five is another challenge that tests if you can handle the heat. Each flavour is increasingly spicy so make sure you have a glass of water or milk handy.
EATABLE Wine & Spirits Infused Gourmet Popcorn
Details: These Toronto-made popcorn bags are all infused with various wines and spirits. I have to admit I was initially skeptical about the flavours but the alcohol taste is very subtle. I tried the champagne flavour which has popping candy in it and the tequila one that tastes like elevated caramel corn.
Sugarfina Peach Bellini
Details: Think of these as a more sophisticated Fuzzy Peach that would taste great alone or as a garnish with prosecco.
Details: These energizing orange chocolate chews each have 85 milligrams of caffeine in them (just a little under what an 8-ounce cup of joe would have). They're popular with fitness enthusiasts because they give you the energy without all the stomach problems.
SmartSweets Gummy Worms Pouch
Details: Many of us can't handle sugar the same way as when we were younger and if you suffer from sugar crashes and headaches, these naturally sweetened gummy worms only have 3 grams for an entire bag. You can also pick up sugar-free lollipops for $4.49.
Sugar Chic Candy Prosecco Bears
Details: These sweet gummies are made in Toronto and come in a stylish triangle container that you can customize for a special occasion if it's a gift. FYI: these ones don't actually have any alcohol in them so they're safe for kids.
More Labs Morning Recovery
Details: And if you find nothing scarier on Halloween than the hangover the next morning, then these lemon-flavoured electrolyte drinks will have you waking up refreshed. You can buy them in packs of six, 12 or 24 and drink them before, during or after having a hauntingly good time.
Disposable Ice Popsicle Mold Bags
Details: If you're up for a little DIY treat, you can get these sealable freezie bags to fill with whatever boozy concoctions you want. Maybe a margarita or a pina colada? The pack comes with 100, so you'll be set for a while.
