Zeke Meeks vs the Horrendous Halloween (Halloween should be nothing but trick-or-treating, fun, and candy, but that's is not how it goes for Zeke. Costume troubles, a fight with Hector, and lame treats all mess with Zeke's holiday. Can Zeke overcome it all and save his Halloween?)
Calling it a night.....................
Act & React Halloween game
Have thespian party goers jot down a bunch of ooky, spooky, or kooky Halloween-y scenarios to act and react to. (Think: Dracula has come to suck your blood!) Throw these gems into a plastic pumpkin, then have one person draw and act out their scenario while others guess along.
Bonfire Toffee (is a hard, brittle toffee associated with Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night in the United Kingdom. The toffee tastes very strongly of black treacle, and cheap versions can be quite bitter. In Scotland, the treat is known as claggum, with less sweet versions known as clack. In Wales, it is known as loshin du. The flavor is similar to that of butterscotch, although it is a toffee and never a viscous liquid)
or you can drink it..................
Chocolate skeleton cookie cupcakes
Stick your family of chocolate skeleton cookies into colorful cauldron cupcakes for the coolest (and yummiest) two-in-one treat ever.
Divination Games (There are several games traditionally associated with Halloween. Some of these games originated as divination rituals or ways of foretelling one's future, especially regarding death, marriage and children. During the Middle Ages, these rituals were done by a "rare few" in rural communities as they were considered to be "deadly serious" practices. In recent centuries, these divination games have been "a common feature of the household festivities" in Ireland and Britain)
Unmarried women were told that if they sat in a darkened room and gazed into a mirror on Halloween night, the face of their future husband would appear in the mirror. However, if they were destined to die before marriage, a skull would appear. The custom was widespread enough to be commemorated on greeting cards from the late 19th century and early 20th century................................
Apple peel test....................
2 other divinations, but couldn't find pictures for..................
Two hazelnuts would be roasted near a fire; one named for the person roasting them and the other for the person they desire. If the nuts jump away from the heat, it is a bad sign, but if the nuts roast quietly it foretells a good match.
A salty oatmeal bannock would be baked; the person would eat it in three bites and then go to bed in silence without anything to drink. This is said to result in a dream in which their future spouse offers them a drink to quench their thirst

Frankford Gummy Body Parts Candy
So speaking of Frankford.................
Several weeks back I was reading an article online about Frankford Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate Bomb the that was going to be available at Target for $2.99. Thought this would be cool to try (however recent reviews aren't favorable).
Anyway......the closest Target is 20 minutes away so I decide to check Walmart (which I have in my hometown). They don't have them in store but you can order them online, for $14.40 (yes you are reading that right). So then I thought maybe I can order them on Amazon, sure for $6.97 (a little cheaper, was $8.75). Some other sites vary in prices. Needless to say not sure they're worth driving a total of 40 minutes for given the price of gas................
Here's the proof...............
Garfield's Haunted House and Other Spooky Tales - Jim Davis
Halloween Wars (is an American reality competition series from Super Delicious, the production company that also produces Cupcake Wars and Cake Wars. It premiered on October 2, 2011, on Food Network and it runs over the course of four weeks in October annually. The show pits five teams made up of cake sculptors, sugar artists, and pumpkin carvers against each other to produce the ultimate Halloween themed display. The winning team is awarded $50,000)
I'm actually watching episodes of this right now. There were changes to this season and fans aren't happy....
One of the reasons fans are so disappointed in no pumpkins on Halloween Wars is that it was one of the critical components of this long-running reality competition that set it apart from the rest. Food Network has tons of other competition bake-offs, and this was less about the baking than it was about designs. Seeing pumpkin carvers turn massive pumpkins into incredible creations felt suitable for the holiday. It made this show feel much different from Halloween Baking Championship or the myriad of cooking challenges. Because of filming restrictions and scheduling problems, Food Network was forced to film the season much earlier or not film the show at all. They reportedly filmed this season during the summer months in Utah versus filming in September/October in California. Pumpkins weren’t in season during the summer, and instead of ditching the season altogether, they just chose to change the format. Hopefully, the backlash will prove to the network that fans care about the show’s format and go back to normal next year. However, it’s also worth noting that it appears this season might have had some budgetary cuts, too, as the main prize went from $50,000 to $25,000.
