Healthier Easter Basket Ideas

Easter-2014-Healthy-Easter

Easter candy is a BIG deal. But lately, we think it’s gotten slightly out of hand. Just how many chocolate bunnies, Reese’s eggs, and jelly beans does one child need?

That’s why we decided to come up with slightly healthier treats that are perfect for Easter baskets. Sure, there are still some gooey marshmallows and chocolate-drenched confections on the list, but they’re pretty tame when compared to the bulk of Easter handouts.

Chocolate Covered Fruits and Nuts

On the outside, fruits and nuts that are dipped in chocolate appear similar to traditional Easter treats. But unlike, say, a Cadbury Crème Egg, what’s on the inside is extremely healthy – as candies go, anyway.

Homemade Peeps

Making marshmallow Peeps may sound like a daunting task, but it’s surprisingly easy and much healthier than those bought at the store. (See this recipe for further instructions.)

Experience Our Thanksgiving Popcorn Feast

clip_image002People sometimes ask us why we love Thanksgiving so much, but our answer is always the same: How could we not love Thanksgiving this much? It’s an entire day – 24 golden, delicious hours – when all you do is make food, eat food, and chill out with your favorite people. Basically, there’s nothing to not like about the holiday, which is what lead us to create this, well, rather outrageous collection of gourmet pop…

In looks alone, this sampler does appear similar to others, but it’s so totally different. OR IS IT? Just like all of our flavors, these 9 are fashioned out of the finest gourmet ingredients, yielding delicious snacks that can’t be rivaled. But, as previously stated, they’re slightly crazier than your run-of-the-mill cheddar. With flavors that taste freakishly accurate, anyone can enjoy a full Thanksgiving feast at any time, complete with savory Turkey that’s topped with Gravy, accompanied by a side of stuffing, a helping of sweet potatoes, and finished off with a selection of freshly baked desserts (helllooooo, Apple Pie).

How To Host a Halloween Movie Night

So, you’re having friends over for a night of Halloween films this weekend? Well, we applaud you (frankly, we’ll probably be doing the same thing). But unlike usual movie marathons, you probably want to make this one note worthy, amiright? That’s why we’ve created these tips. Whether you’re planning on watching family-friendly Beetlejuice or a series of cringe-worthy slasher flicks, you can deliver a memorable evening in 4 easy steps:

How To Host A Halloween Movie Night

The Plan:

“Plans are pointless. Staying alive is as good as it gets.” – 28 Days Later (2002)

Actually, pre-zombie apocalypse, we’re all still into a man (or woman) with a plan. So for your movie night, don’t just stockpile freaky films and expect your pals to pick out their favorites. That’s going to take hours and defeat the purpose of you choreographing this event. The first thing you want to do is decide how many scary movies you guys can sit through and what your theme is going to be. You need a theme. Don’t even think you don’t. It can be a director, time period, character, top-horror movies, whatever, it doesn’t matter – just have one and stick to it.
