Happy Halloween! Are you getting ready for tonight’s festivities? Or are you dressed up at work, trying not to smudge your face paint? The October fun isn’t over yet. Stop by local candy stores in Bucks County and nearby to get all your last-minute goodies, for yourself and the trick-or-treaters. And, be sure to check out what local foodie events are coming up next month.


Trick-or-treat? Why should kids have all the Halloween fun? If you are a grown-up with a sweet tooth (but don’t want to tap into your five-year-olds candy stash) try one of these local candy stores. Plus, shopping local means avoiding the craziness at supermarkets and other stores that sell big bags of Halloween candy: 

  • Laurie’s ChocolatesGood news! Simply Fresh Market by McCaffrey’s is now carrying Laurie’s Chocolates. Try out Tavern Toffee, Sea Salt Toffee, Hot Cocoa mixes, Orange Hazelnut Bark, Sour Cherry Cocoa Nib Bark and Aztec Spicy Bark. Coming soon to the other McCaffrey’s Markets.Chocolate collage
  • Pierre’s ChocolatesPierre’s Chocolates makes caramel chocolate dipped apples using fresh Manoff Market Gardens apples. Pick some up, or try their pumpkin pie truffles, or any of their truffles to be honest.
  • The LarderThe Larder is a great place to mix-and-match bulk candy. To keep the Halloween spirit going, pick up candy corn, festive jelly beans, and other fall favorites. Tuesday is senior citizen discount day, and veterans and active duty military receive 10% off everyday.
  • Raymer’s Homemade CandiesThis candy store in Doylestown had plenty of Halloween treats yesterday, so pop in on your lunch break to see how many chocolate pumpkins or chocolate covered Oreos are left.
  • Shane ConfectioneryIf you are in Philadelphia for the Halloween festivities, make your way down Market Street to Shane Confectionery. Try out the boozy whiskey caramel bon-bon which is made with Dad’s Hat Rye whiskey! Definitely worth the trip.
  • Sciascia ConfectionsYou can purchase Tom Sciascia’s wonderful truffles online or at the Stockton Market on weekends. After all the Halloween partying, you might want to sit and relax this week with his Mayan hot drinking chocolate, or his famous sea salted caramels.

Mojito Cuba Caribe Restaurant in New Hope is hosting its chef cook-off, similar to the very popular Iron Chef. This Thursday, starting at 6 pm, there will be a battle between two chefs. The chefs will each create three small plates of their choice, only using the same ingredient in their featured entrée dish.

Customers get to vote on each plate based on taste, creativity, and presentation for a fixed price of $25, which includes six small plates (three by each chef), one house wine, domestic beer, or house mixed drink. Ask about their fall cocktail list, like the maple bourbon smash, or apple cider sangria (additional cost may be necessary).

There’s also a chance to win a $10 gift certificate on your next visit to Mojito Cuba Caribe. The winning chef and winner of the gift certificate will be announced when the kitchen closes at 9 pm. Reservations are recommended so call 267.740.2900.

Golden Pheasant Inn

Whether you have a big family or small, there is no shame in going out for dinner on Thanksgiving. Many restaurants in Bucks and nearby have big, traditional Thanksgiving dinner menus and are ready to cook you a great holiday meal. Why not give thanks to all the local folks out there that continue to cook for us? Our list of where you can eat for Thanksgiving this year is almost done, so you don’t have to search for a place yourself.

Also, don’t bother with a Thanksgiving turkey from the supermarket. We are rounding up a list of farms and shops where you can buy a fresh, local turkey. Check back to see the full list this week!

On the radar…

  • Apple Festival: The Apple Festival at Peddler’s Village will return on Saturday, November 5 until Sunday, November 6 from 10 am – 6 pm. Reserve your 2016 festival package here and pre-order your apple pie here. New this year: Bechdolt’s Orchard of Bucks County and the Peddler’s Village General Store are expanding the variety of local apples and apple baked goods, and festivities this year.
  • Ground Operations: Battlefields to Farmlands: On November 10, Delaware Valley University and its organic farming program for vets, along with the Doylestown Food Market, are hosting a film as part of the market’s farm fresh film series. Consider sponsoring one or more of the films in the series, or just come for the movie!
