Trick or Treat at University Village

From 4 to 6 PM this Saturday (Halloween!) more than 30 of the stores at the University Village -- including yours truly! -- will be hosting families for the annual Trick or Treat event! All the Candy Girls will be dressed up and we love rewarding kids in fun, scary and clever costumes with delicious free treats. Can't wait to see you there!

We are so excited about the cards and calendars we're now carrying from local Seattle artist Ilee! Her beautiful illustrations are wonderful, functional pieces of art. We love how she captured the mood of the Halloween season for the October sheet in her 2009 and 2010 calendar, and the invitation below.

Come in and check out the other, equally wonderful things we are carrying from Ilee!

Get All the Goodies for a Spooky Soiree

If there is one thing we know here at the Confectionery, it's how to supply your holiday parties with plenty of delectable treats for people of all ages and all tastes. As always, we have a specialty seasonal blend of Jelly Belly beans (Fall and Halloween blends currently available, and of course we can help you make your own blend anytime!), malt balls with colorful candy shells that let them double as perfect snack and decoration, and no one can resist our caramel balls in dark chocolate, milk chocolate and caramel apple.
If you're making a festive cake for the occasion we've got you covered-- licorice ropes, candy-shell covered Milkies in all colors, gummy and sour worms, gummy brains, sour bats, mellocreme pumpkins---and so much more!

There's just a few days left before the big day -- we can hardly wait! -- so stop by and pick up all the essentials for your Halloween shindig this Saturday!

No Tricks, Just Treats

Our bright orange Chinese food boxes fit a ton of delicious treats, including: our fall Jelly Belly mix, candy corn, milk chocolate foil wrapped pumpkins and milk chocolate foil wrapped fall leaves, topped with a matching bow and a spooky spider.

Our sparkly owl will scare away anyone trying to steal your hard-earned candy stash!

These beautifully detailed devil face and black cat buckets are wonderful for giving Halloween-themed gifts, and useful as a bucket for trick-or-treating, too!

Spooky Basket for Charity

Halloween is a great time to remember the magic of being a kid. We wanted to make sure the local Ronald McDonald house was equipped with all our favorite treats, so we donated a gift basket which included: the best candy corn in town, a house blend of delicious Jelly Belly beans, a blend of our chocolate-covered toffee, colorful taffy, and our delectable malt balls! And we included this incredible spooky skeleton candy dish - complete with Cousin It-style candy jar hands. It's hard not to go overboard with our favorite holiday!

MMMMM--- crispy milk chocolate eyeballs!
