Trick or Treat?

I was young .... once
We love Halloween, we don't go trick or treating ourselves (I was never allowed as a child) but that
doesn't stop me and the boys dressing up, eating junk food and having a fab time and this year it'll taste even better as Swizzels have teamed up with Gulliver Theme's parks.

This year sees the first ever Swizzels Trick Or Treat Trail at all three Gulliver’s theme parks in Warrington, Matlock Bath and Milton Keynes throughout October half term through to Halloween weekend and we've been invited to go along and experience the spooky magic (I am already planning the outfit) on Monday.  I cannot wait to tell you all about it when we get back.

Swizzels, who themselves are based in Derbyshire, are going to send 80,000 of their famous sweets to support the trail so children who dare to enter and complete spooky challenges can earn goodies (yay they can use their lovely trick or treat bags we got).   The activities we are looking forward too most are mixing a secret Rainbow Drops potion and using drumstick lollies to play the Monster Mash.  And of course when we finish we can go and explore some of the other fantastic rides at the park which are geared up for children as young as mine.

They have also launched a fab new range of goodies in time for the big day,

The new spooky bags include "Trick or Sweet bags" which contains a selection of favourites such as Double Lollies, Parma Violets, Refresher bars, Love Hearts, Fruity Pops and Drumstick Lollies. These all have Halloween themed wrappers to make them ideal for parties.

The "Trick or Treat Lolly Mix bag" is also available, which includes Monster Double Lollies, orange
and black Drumstick Lollies and pumpkin themed Fruity Pops.

Asda has an exclusive "Scary Mix bag" which includes a host of Halloween themed goodies.  Whilst Tesco have an exclusive tub.
