Gourd Power

The Spice Girls are back! Well, three of them. They're GEM.

All that is curing my seasonal depression. So is retail therapy.
I bought black lipstick on Black Friday, naturally.

I may buy this Wannabe planchette pin too:

Now I need to find a cure for pumpkin spice rash and déjà vu.

Candy Crusaders

Like Linus, I've learned never to discuss politics with people.
So I've focused on fantasy elections and saved the best for last.


Feeling empowered today,
Even a priss can be President,
It's just the opinions you have to sway

The simple life is not for me,
I lean towards the extraordinary,
The stars are high, but I can reach higher
Don't put me out now while I am on fire

Feeling neurotic today,
But it's perfectly okay,
With the stars in my eyes,
I use this madness as a guide

I'm going to steal every star from the sky,
This little lady has no reason to hide.

Little Gothic Horrors nominated me for Presidency here!
I think Mr. T should be President though,
so I'll be his M.V.P. (Mad Vice President).
We have more in common than our last names starting with T.
We aren't Republican or Democrat. We are The Mad T Party.
And nothing makes us madder than Cancer and Muscular Dystrophy.

 Sadly we can't help sick kids with our doctorate degrees.

Dr. Mr. T, Foologist

But we can help them with prayers, positivity, and candy!

That's why I created the Candy Crusaders.
I want it to be a sweet (literally!) charity like Treat A Tot,
which has volunteers bring treats to kids in hospitals on Halloween.
Mine will be year round and treat sick kids at home though.
The treat will be a long twisty lollipop, the C. C. weapon of choice.
It will be delivered by a carrier bat finger puppet,
who will be their battle buddy.

I'm buying them from,
so the money goes to save the bats.

A letter from my alter ego will also be included.
Such as this:

Dear ______,

I'm sorry you're going through a tough time, but it's made you stronger.
That's why I want you to be a Holly's Horrorland Candy Crusader.
Whose mission is to fight sickness with sweetness.
Slay it away with this sweet saber.
This carrier bat will be your battle buddy.



I'll send these FREE to any child in the U.S. with a serious illness.
Just email their story, name and address to me.
You can also buy them for $10 (shipping included within the U.S.)
Email to order or if you'd like to make a donation, please!
It doesn't have to be money. It can be an item to sell or raffle off.
I'm creating Candy Clinic items to sell soon. Stay tuned!

Target Treats

A porch poacher stole a box of candy I ordered from Target last week.
I told Target and they refunded me. Plus emailed me a $10 gift card!
So I reordered the candy and it got here for the best day of the year!

Happy Halloween!

These are the Target exclusive treats I got:

Maple Brown Sugar Peeps

I'm waiting to review these with two other flavors of Peeps.

White Boo-tterscotch M&M's

These white chocolate M&M's are big, buttery and crunchy.

Brunch Favorites Candy Corn

My favorite of these three flavors is French Toast & Maple Syrup.
They're buttery like the M&M's, so both go well with these guys:

Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Skulls

Use M&M's for eyes and candy corn to make a bow tie.

Bone appetit!

The skulls aren't a Target exclusive, but I had to share them.
The butterfinger pieces and peanut butter pair perfectly.
I just wish they were white chocolate.

Speaking of chocolate,
Count Chocula won the Monster Cereal Election.

I voted for my favorite, Franken Berry,
but love all three monsters. Unlike him:
