Trick or Treat


Yeah, they work hard for the candy.

Of course, if mine bring home any dark chocolate Reese's, they'd better hide 'em.


Which treat do you love the best?

Reese's comes in dark chocolate?? where have I been?

Love the drawing.

Rena said...

Oh, I love the drawing, Adrienne! I'm partial to candy corn, but don't like Brachs. Any other brand will do but that one. My kids usually give me anything with coconut or almonds in it, which is fine with me.

Bish Denham said...

Anything chocolate will do for me. (Hubby asks, what about Mary Janes?)

LOVE the drawing!

LW said...

What a cute little picture.

I like MilkyWays …
And a Kiss here and there…

Awhh, they are so adorable. I'll treat them :)

I love the drawing adrienne. Happy Halloween.

ICQB said...

I absolutey love the drawing!

And I'm trying not to think of my favorite Halloween treat. I lost several pounds over the summer and I'm trying to keep it off : )

But I did go to a chocolate tasting at my library the other night. Yum. And we each got a 'reverese' trick or treat bag to take home, filled with 10 informational cards about fair-trade chocolate and with a little fair-trade chocolate bar attached to each of them.

Your children are supposed to give them to the people who give them candy and say something like, "Thank you, and here's some fair-trade chocolate for you and information about how you can help end child slavery on cocoa farms."

My daughter is going around on Halloween with a friend who is taking her baby on her first trick-or-treat. She'll give the cards out then.

Your artwork! But a close second is anything chocolate :)

MG Higgins said...

That is a cute, cute drawing. Dark chocolate Reese's? I didn't know they existed! Yes, I'll definitely take one of those.

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Did you draw that? IT IS SO CUTE!!! I'd totally buy a pack of cards with that illustration.
And I'll steal all the Dots out of my kids' candy bags.

Lilfix said...

Love the drawing!

I'm good with anything chocolate...I also didn't know Reese's came in dark chocolate...will be looking for those...

adrienne said...

Pseudo, MG, and Brenda - Dark chocolate Reese's exist and they should come with a warning! It's very hard to quit once you discover them...

Rena - I could have used your candy corn expertise years ago - I only learned when my daughter was allergic to egg that not all candy corn is the same! We had to read all the labels.

Bish - I hunt for the chocolate, but I still love those Mary Janes, too!

Louise - Milky Way Midnights are my other favorite. Everything should come in dark chocolate. :)

Ocean Girl - I'm looking forward to seeing little ones like that at my door (hopefully not looking too stunned)...

ICQB - Thanks for the reminder to stay informed...although I’m not sure about handing over a leaflet if someone’s already in the doorway with a big bowl of Brand X chocolates.

PJ - I'm happy if you think my artwork is in the same league as chocolate. :)

Green Girl - Ooh, Dots. I feel them sticking to my teeth already...

Kelly said...

Sooo cute!
I love Reese Peanut Butter cups the best!

Kim Kasch said...

Reese's is my fav 2 but I also like Butterfinger, MnMs, 3 Musketeers, 100 Grand, heck I could go on and on - just look at me :(

Rebecca Ramsey said...

I love your drawing.
My favorite? Reese's or Butterfingers. Or peanut M&M's.
Yum.

Ara Burklund said...

Great drawing!

I love the sour stuff, so I'll be angling for the Shock Tarts and Sour Skittles.

Mary Witzl said...

Reese's? Did someone say Reese's? Along with real Mexican food, sweet potato pie, turkey, and cranberry sauce, that is one of the available-in-America foodstuffs I'd give my eyeteeth for.

Suzanne Casamento said...

That is the cutest drawing EVER! I love it.

I love nerds. The candy and the dudes.

Sophia said...

Adrienne,
I love this sketch! And the bats hanging from the tree...cute! :)

adrienne said...

Reese's seem to be in the lead - I didn't know they were that popular :)

Mary - If you can get peanut butter, confectioner's sugar, and chocolate, you can make a mock version! Here's one recipe:

Suzanne - :-D

Sophia - Thanks for visiting! :)

I LOVE this drawing! It totally captures the trick-or-treat experience.

My favorites? Snickers and Reeses, Yum!

I also like non-chocolates, like Twizzlers and Dots.

But my favorite Halloween treat is the orange marshmallow pumpkins covered in chocolate. They haven't had them here for a couple of years, but my mom is really nice and sends me one or two every year :)
