We know you can feel it coming. The dreaded sugar belly that accompanies overindulging on Halloween candy. All those sweet snacks at the Halloween parties, and that big bowl of candy treats for the kiddies are down right irresistible,… am I right? But, what if you had a delicious alternative that indulges your sweet tooth and keeps it light at the same time? This year, instead of devouring the whole bag of candy corn, we thought we would make a healthier version of our favorite snack using pineapples and oranges. With a multitude of candy corn flavors to choose from like Classic, Caramel, Caramel Candy Apple & Mellowcreme Autumn Mix, garnishing your snack is easy. The eye appeal of this colorful fruit cocktail topped off with whip creme and a sprinkle of classic candy corn is undeniable, and it packs the perfect amount of sweetness to satisfy even the most demanding sweet tooth. As easy to prepare as they are fun to serve, Candy Corn Fruit Cocktail is a SCARY GOOD addition to your Halloween party menu.
