Happy Halloween!

Yeah, yeah, yeah… it’s late over here on the West Coast, and I’m sure most of you are already onto November 1st, but we’re still eating candy here, so I’m writing a Halloween post.  It’s my blog… I get to do what I want.  🙂

I went trail exploring this evening.  In the dark.  It was interesting, to say the least.  Okay, the video is a little boring because it’s so dark… I’ll try better next time… but I found a great song to go with it.

And here’s a real thing… people have actually researched what the best wine is to go with your favorite Halloween candy.  Seriously.  Here’s a partial list:

  • If you like Hershey’s Kisses, pair it with a Zinfandel.
  • If you like Whoppers, a nice Cabernet Sauvignon will wash those down nicely.
  • Reeses Peanut Butter Cups go well with a Sherry.
  • Sweet Tarts apparently pair well with Riesling.
  • If you like Skittles, drink a Moscato.
  • And Kit Kats go perfectly with a Merlot.

Of course, if all else fails… water goes with everything!!


Hope everyone had a wonderfully spooky and fun Halloween!

        That wasn’t actually THE trail… it’s been raining too hard for me to get to that one just yet. This was a fun little patch of forest we discovered and decided to explore, but this one was extremely spooky and dark. It was dusk, but it may as well have been midnight, lol!

    Happy Halloween Paula! I know, my greeting is a little tardy. I really enjoyed reading your post :). A late-night trail walk does sound pretty spooky especially on Halloween. I enjoyed your candy and wine pairings. I will keep that in mind! And loved the costumes!!! Xoxoxo.

      Lol, that’s nice that you watched some of it! I was going for Blair Witch, and the boys were with me and did a bit of a boo at the end. One day I’ll be a great cinematographer…. hahahaha… not!! 🙂

    Aww man! I am so behind in my reading! I love this Paula! First of all, the idea of using the Teddy Bear Picnic song was a masterstroke and then pairing wines with Halloween candy?
    Girl, you got me in 7th Heaven! LOL!!!!
    Loved it!

    Really cute video. I love the song…. the only thing is, the YouTube freeze frame before you play the movie kind of gives it away! And AJ and his friends seems like a great group. 🙂
    Thanks for the drink pairing tips! I don’t eat candy anymore… but I’ll take those drinks. 🙂
