8 Tricks and Treats for Adults That Are Even More Delicious Than Halloween Candy
Halloween is a magical holiday for kids—and Trick-or-treating was probably the most difficult childhood pastime to shake after entering adulthood. Who doesn’t love free candy?!

In fact, with adulthood comes a whole new level of Halloween appreciation: ALCOHOL. It’s not *all* about the booze, though—there’s also the promise of high-end and fine-crafted chocolate that may not excite your inner 5-year-old but gets your outer adult pretty jazzed.
