Halloween Candy Review: Gummy Eyeballs

Throughout the month I will be reviewing unusually creepy Halloween candy. Anyone can give out the usual M&M, Snickers, Milky Way, Twix mix. Stand out by giving a unique treat that will both repulse and excite the kids in your neighborhood.

25_5801Today we will be taking a look at a Halloween classic, gummy eyeballs! The Marshmallow Eyeballs were great, but these gummies have an 20121026_164728eerie, slimy texture that resemble actually chomping down on an eyeball.
When you first look at the packaging you get a nice drawing of bloodshot, floating eyeballs. The only deceptive thing about the packaging is that the gummy candy is actually flat and not round like an eyeball. This actually works out very well for placing on top of cupcakes, cakes, or other Halloween related foods you may have baked this year!
The consistency is very chewy, but not as tough as a traditional gummy bear. There is a lot of chewing and slimy consistency, which turns out to be a little gross!
Regardless of the gross factor, the kids in your neighborhood will definitely remember your house if you give out these gummy eyeballs! It’s all about making a memorable moment on Halloween night for kids everywhere.

Candy available at Oriental Trading!

My fiercest enemy, revealed!

Hello again, junior pirates! Captain Dead Skin Dave here again. I’ve been gettin’ ready to debut my first book o’ adventures next month! I’ve had my first mate, Tom, go out ta all the party stores and stock up on streamers, balloons, and he even found little plastic treasure chests! It’s sure ta be a grand party, indeed!

Today, I am pleased ta introduce you to the most feared pirate in all o’ the seas, Hairy Hazelroth!
Hairy Hazelroth was the vilest pirate of all the seas! Every visible part of his body covered in dark black hair, green ribbons tied to the end of his enormously long beard, and his giant black Captain’s hat, all made this notorious pirate easily identifiable.
Hairy and his crew were known for pillaging not only Royalty ships, but even the ships of fellow pirates. And soon, he would be coming for Dead Skin Dave!

Well, junior pirates, doesn’t Hairy Hazelroth sound scary? I can assure you, he is! You can read all about my encounter with him when me book is released next month!

Next time I will be sharin’ a little more about me first mate, Tom! I hope ye are lookin’ forward to it, ’cause I am! Until then, have a swashbuckin’ good time!

 

Dead Skin Dave, the Pirate coming April 2013!

Inspiration Place: It’s a Grind Coffee House

My next journey for inspiring writing places tales me to It’s A Grind Coffee House in Long Beach, CA. For all of my writing sessions, I am using a Microsoft Surface RT with Touch cover and Office 2013. picture010

With a mostly comfortable plastic chair underneath me and an adequate sized wire mesh table, the outdoor patio is a very relaxing and inspiring place to get writing done. I was able to get a perfect table overlooking the lone plantlike tree thing which blocks out the view of the parking lot. Here in an urban setting this is the best I’m going to get unless I go down to a park.
There is also a lot of opportunity to get lost in one’s work at this location. Most of the time the other patrons of this establishment either have their iPods going or are furiously typing away on a laptop. It is an almost library-like setting without the smell of stale books. As I spend more time at this location I have a feeling people will come to recognize me, as a few regulars came by while I was writing and were enthusiastically greeted by the staff and a few patrons. This sense of community is definitely a plus of living in the walking, biking and artist friendly Bixby Knolls section of Long Beach.

picture011Listening to the chirps of birds from the, uh, plant and the slight chatter of people enjoying a cup of coffee with a friend or partner really help make this spot the best I have written at so far. It is quiet, I can get in the correct mindset, and on cold days there is ample seating inside the coffee shop with  undisturbed quiet corners. I look forward to returning to this location and I urge all of my fellow writers to get out and find the place that is right for you.
