We are fast approaching October, which means Halloween will be upon us in no time. Decorating, parties, candy and more! SweetWorks® Candy Company has helped us prepare to celebrate. I received a box of goodies that included the popular Sixlets, Pearls, Gumballs, Ovation chocolate & Spooky Eyeballs gum. Do you remember buying Sixlets from the your local or corner penny candy store as a kid? I do! And trying them again brought back some memories. I love that they are still available in the individual plastic “tube” wrappers so you can just pop them one at a time into your mouth.
A candy with a crunchy outer shell surrounding a chocolate inside. Available in individually wrapped packs and bags of loose “Celebration” Sixlets by color. These make a great decorating element. As you can see in the picture above, I put them in a tall clear glass to showcase their color that also acts as a candy dish. Colors available for Halloween/Fall are lime, orange, black and lavender.
Spooky Eyeballs Gumball
Individually wrapped gumballs in a decorative “spooky eyeball” wrapper. Perfect for handing out during trick or treat and even as an addition to your favorite Halloween party treats. Check out the cupcakes we made with them, pumpkin spice with cream cheese frosting. Simply add an eyeball and a little red sprinkles!
About 1 inch gumball pieces also make a great design element for your tablescape or add them to individual treat bags to hand out during trick or treat! I like these gumballs a lot because they were not really hard to bite and the flavor lasted a bit longer than others I have had. Check out the “shimmer” gumballs, they are really pretty.
Ovation Pumpkin Spice Break-A-Part Chocolate
This is really cool. They come wrapped in seasonal colored foil, great presentation, and what you do is give it a swift whack straight down on a hard surface. Do not over do it or you will shatter it. The point is to separate the segments. The chocolate is smooth and the flavor is apparent , but not over bearing.
Ovation Caramel Sticks
This box provides a good amount of individually wrapped milk chocolate and caramel “sticks” . As much as I love chocolate, I have to admit that these were not my favorite. Unfortunately, I actually did not taste any caramel. I am not sure if they are suppose to be caramel filled or if the chocolate itself is caramel flavored. I did however, LOVE the mint ones which will appear in another post for Christmas in the neat future.
The selection is great and SweetWorks® offers a very well organized seasonal section of their website so you can easily shop for the colors you need if using them for edible decoration. The Celebration line is great for this. To view the Halloween/Fall products head over to the SweetWorks® website. You can order online or find these products in most stores.
