Prevent lolly worries at Halloween + a colourful giveaway

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This post is sponsored by The Allen’s Team

Growing up we never celebrated Halloween, it just wasn’t a thing in my family and I wasn’t going to make a big fuss about it with my kids.  However Halloween is a growing celebration here in Australia with many of the kids in our neighbourhood dressing up and knocking on doors asking for treats.  This year it falls on a Friday, we will be home and have decided that we will participate this year.  Yes ‘decided’, because I am still torn between celebrating or not I just don’t like the idea of my kids knocking on the door of neighbours who we don’t usually talk to asking for lollies.  Usually the lollies received are unwrapped and I’m not comfortable with that, questioning how old are they, where have they been stored, are they coated with anything.  Ok, last one is a little too far, lolly tampering, but my mind thinks about things like that and makes me worried.

When we participate in Halloween I give out packaged lollies. This year I have created a little area near our front door ready for the celebration.  It has helped me get into the spirit.

Allen’s Fruity Craze Jelly Beans are now available at Coles and other independent supermarkets in fun size packs, you can find them in the lolly aisle with the other multipacks.  The fun size packs are a great treat for the kids, and being that there are only 9 jelly beans in each pack, I am confident they won’t over indulge!  The Halloween lollies don’t have to be eaten on Halloween night, they can be saved for a treat at sports or school for the kids, or have in your purse for something sweet while driving.

Fruity Craze packs come with 8 out of the 9 original Allen’s Jelly Bean flavours, black aniseed is missing as most kids don’t like them.
