It’s that time of year again. We all have special memories of getting dressed up, wandering around the neighborhood and spending the night gorging on candy like some kind of hollow-eyed sugar zombie.
But I’m not talking about the time we got stood up for prom. I’m talking about Halloween.
Yes, All Hallow’s Eve is upon us — and though I don’t know exactly what a ‘Hallow’ is, I know it rhymes with ‘marshmallow’, and that’s good Halloween eating. Along with chocolate, caramel, peanut butter, imitation coconut shavings, whatever the hell kind of animal is in ‘nougat’, and FD&C Red #2.
In honor of our dentists’ favorite holiday, I took to Facebook to have words with the makers of some of Halloween’s most iconic candy-coated confections. Read on to satisfy your spooky sweet tooth — and for my actual posts on the companies’ Facebook walls.
It may haunt you — but at least you won’t have to worry about getting peanut M&M stains out of a rented tuxedo. So there’s one nightmare out of the way. Merry Marshmalloween!
