Oh yeah, I’m going to break some relationships up and make a tier list. A Halloween candy tier list.
This was originally going to be a bigger collab with candy from here in Australia as well as North America and UK, however it would have been so long that we thought it’s best to stick with the US as it’s celebrated the most there.
Something my wonderful, supportive US friends need to know is your candy taste like the ass end of a skunk; it’s some terrible, corn syrup candy for the most part, but you do have some good ones in there.
Now some candies will be missing because I, along with my darling Canadian friend and The Evil Assistant, haven’t tried the US version or we did try them and can’t remember, so this isn’t a comprehensive list.
In case you don’t know how a tier list works, it’s a ranking of [insert anything you want here] from S-tier or God Tier, something is the absolute best, your favourite, pretty much perfect, going down to the so-so of C then down to E (some lists go to F) which is bad, awful, just Not Great At All.
In this list, S-tier is basically what we would go out of our way to get,
maybe steal it from a kids bucket or do some incredible finessing to acquire it. C-tier is “it’s okay.. I mean if it was in front of me I’ll eat it” while E-tier is giving it away for nothing or sinking it into a bin.
From us to you, we wanted to wish all of you a happy Halloween! We hope you enjoyed all of our posts, I’m so damn tired now and if I see another pumpkin anything, I’m going to puke.
Before we take a week break to get caught up on some things, let’s christen this budget Barbie camper of a month with some Shirley Devil Temples!
Keeping your Shirley Temple’s grenadine red is awesome and Halloweeny, but since we’ve been making things black we might as well make the grenadine black too!
Get your drinkware and pour whatever soda you wish; it’s usually a lemon-lime soda, 7-Up or Mountain Dew, however, we had a can of Solo and some lemon lime & bitters chilling in the back of the fridge so.. waste not, want not.
Pour syrup into your glasses slowly then add a squeeze or two of black gel food colouring or to your liking. As it swirls round-and-round it darkens, taking on a purple or green colour!
We really hope you have a happy and safe Halloween, thank you so much for popping around and we’ll see you next week when I come out of Halloween-coma!
Imagine it… sirens are screaming and the fires are howling way down in the valley tonight, there’s a girl in the shadows with a coffin-shaped meatloaf covered in bacon…
That girl is me.
Let’s make a meatloaf.
It’s still October? You mean Halloween hasn’t happened yet and I still have stuff to post???
Today’s post is all about simple stuff for maximum impact.. which is basically the unofficial motto of this site. Is it working smarter not harder? Absolutely not; I don’t feel smart when I’m running on no sleep, TMJ pain and a kid next door dragging something over the wooden deck, all while I attempt to type something remotely coherent.
Aside from all that, we’re going to make a spooky party platter with some props, a lot of ready-made stuff, a few healthy things and – surprisingly – homemade stuff!
