Celebrate Halloween with The Popcorn Factory and Cheryl's {Review & Giveaway}

1-800-Flowers brands{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Pat!}

The same way that a birthday party wouldn't be complete without blowing out candles, I don't feel as though holidays are really complete without treats.

Tasty, tasty treats.

Usually for Halloween we immediately think of candy, but I believe that unless you're young enough to still be out trick-or-treating, your goodies should come in the form of something much more unique, fun, and delicious.

And who better to help you celebrate October than the experts in yummy snacks, The Popcorn Factory and Cheryl's?

Halloween treatsWhen the leaves change color and the temperature drops, the gourmet popcorn experts at The Popcorn Factory are ready to celebrate October as National Popcorn Month and Halloween as a spooky yet delightful holiday. After having provided customers delicious popcorn and gourmet snacks for more than 30 years, they know a thing or two about how to take a snack and give it a seemingly endless supply of flavor.

This year they showed off that skill with their special, limited edition Boo Bats Popcorn Tins and all three flavors of popcorn that we like best. Not only was the 2-gallon tin festively decorated on the outside...

popcorn tin...but once we had the top off, it was clear that the all-natural Butter, robust Cheese and secret-recipe Caramel corn flavors weren't going to last for very long around here.

The Popcorn FactoryYum! My husband, the popcorn connoisseur, tried to sneak the entire container away, but didn't end up getting too far. Instead we all hand plenty of chances to reach into the tin and deal with the difficult decision of which third we were going to eat from. They're all so fresh and tasty!

Retailing between $29.99 and $44.99 depending on the size, these Boo Bats Popcorn Tins are a spooky (and tasty!) way to celebrate Halloween for your family or as a great gift.

But when popcorn isn't going to do it, the other snack of choice that we're sure to never turn down is cookies. Although my sweet tooth doesn't mind a mini candy bar now and again, they just don't compare to the Halloween deliciousness that Cheryl's can provide with their Plush Treat Bags.

Halloween treat bagWith an adorable pumpkin bag (which is well-crafted enough that it really can be used for storage, play or transporting candy) filled with a Halloween assortment of cookies, this Plush Treat Bag was an immediate hit right in the door. Just peeking into the top caused my mouth to water!

Cheryl's cookiesThere's something about Cheryl's cookies in that they're forever soft, chewy and delicious. How do they do it? The buttercream frosted pumpkins and ghosts melted in our mouths and every morsel of chocolate was rich and smooth. No matter if they're eaten immediately or you can manage to wait a few days, the flavor is always fresh and scrumptious! Retailing for $26.99, this bag is just the thing to brighten someone's Halloween - young or old.

Whether you're looking to surprise someone or just want to send a special treat this year, The Popcorn Factory and Cheryl's are known for being two of the gourmet food and gift companies that are sure to please. You're definitely going to love their high quality and delectable treats and desserts this Halloween and beyond!

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to have a mouthwatering post-holiday time as well, because...

One lucky person will win a 3-way combo Boo Bats Popcorn Tin from The Popcorn Factory and a Pumpkin Plush Treat Bag from Cheryl's!
