What discontinued products do you miss?

I wish I could find the ORIGINAL Lipton spiced chai tea. My SO loved it! New chai is too cinnamon-y. Meh.

What's the best thing you've ever received trick-or-treating?

The one time I ran out of candy I gave out individual cocoa packets lol!

One neighbor lady on our street dressed up as a witch and had a cauldron on her lawn filled with fresh lemonade! She cackled and handed out cups. It was great!

This reminded me of a neighbor who worked for a company that made small electronics-I remember him giving out transistor radios once for Halloween!

Neighbor lady made popcorn balls wrapped in wax paper back in the days when no one really worried about the safety of homemade treats in your own neighborhood. Fresh and caramelly and better than any wrapped candy!

What is it with Americans and speculoos?

Oh I fairly recently made a journey to Trader Joe's in Las Vegas and found the Speculoo butter. I bought 2 jars and was in heaven till the last spoonful. The spread has the consistency of peanut butter but the taste is best described as very light sugary gingery. It would make an amazing cake frosting!

What's The One Thing You Can't Eat, even for money.

Green bell peppers. Just smelling them makes me gag.

Your last meal

A Taco Bell chicken supreme chalupa, Crab Shack coconut shrimp and boardwalk style fries. Cherry coke to wash it down and a container of Hagen Daas peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. Food of the gods for me.

Remembering my favorite homemade Halloween treats

Once upon a time when I was a trick and treating little'un (mid -late 60's) we would run the large development of homes we lived in (Southern CA) and come home with bags full of homemade popcorn balls, candy apples, cookies, etc. One mother on my block dressed as a witch and served up fresh apple cider from a big cauldron on her front lawn. It was yet unheard of to really worry about receiving mishandled candy or other things. You knew all your neighbors pretty well back in those days. Many gave out the snack size candy bars (one neighbor always gave regular size Hershey bars every single year I knocked on their door) which were second favorites for me but the homemade treats I never forgot-the popcorn balls were caramelly and so fresh and often there were left overs so we would stop at that house again for seconds!. Anyone else remember "good old Halloween days" and were you lucky enough to have homemade treats in your trick or treat bag?

What mustn't you run out of?

Fettuccine is first and foremost for me. I always keep pastas (usually fettuccine), pasta sauce, shredded parmesan and some herbs in the fridge so no matter what I can feed an unexpected group a delicious meal with minimal cost. Other must haves are good artisan bread, butter.coffee. Ritz crackers, fruit and Jif honey roasted peanut butter (my big weakness)
