Halloween treats and candy are not just for kids. It’s true you will probably need to buy candy combo packs for your child’s classroom or stock up for trick-or-treaters, but what are you doing for yourself? Where can you go to “celebrate” the flavors of fall and have your own private snack party? What should you, the adult, set your sights on? You don’t want to waste those empty calories on just any old orange cupcake. I checked in with a few local sweet specialists to get the scoop on the yummiest à la carte goodies to snarf down before Nov. 1. Whether you eat them alone in your car (no judgments) or hide them from your husband in the fruit bin, get out there and make those calories count!
