Edy's / Dreyer's Pumpkin Ice CreamI’m not much for pie, unless it’s pumpkin. And then I’m a total freak about it. So when I tell you Edy’s/Dreyer’s Slow Churned Pumpkin ice cream (with 50% less fat and 30% fewer calories than regular ice cream ) might be better than the real thing, it’s serious. Love at first bite, the flavor of this beautiful, orange-hued ice cream was exactly as I imagined; it was like some test kitchen genius mashed up a creamy, richly-spiced slice of pumpkin pie, threw in a generous dollop of whipped cream for good measure, and then transformed it all into a scrumptious, cool concoction. I scream, you scream. This fall, we can all scream for pumpkin pie ice cream … but only for a limited time. When the falling leaves disappear, so does this flavor. Available through November, look for Edy’s/Dreyer’s Slow Churned Pumpkin in your grocer’s frozen dairy case. Note: This ice cream is branded as “Dreyer’s” west of The Rockies and as “Edy’s” east of The Rockies.

Whether Tootsie Rolls, Sugar Babies or Hershey’s Kisses, what better way to pay tribute to your favorite sugary snack then by donning a costume in its likeness? We happen to know that Yummery Shopanista, Erin has a big thing for fall’s sweetest (and most triangular) treat. We think she’d look just darling in this Candy Corn Costume with its outrageous wig and flirty tri-color dress. Now if only I could find such a garb for my grams to pay homage to her favorite snack. Apparently though, there’s not much demand for Sunkist Prune costumes.

Bone Chillers Ice Cube TrayImagine these ice cubes bobbing abut in a highball glass being held by your best friend who is dressed up like Jem from Jem and the Holograms. It’s a sight to behold, right? You can freeze colored liquids or really trash it up with some Jello shots; the party possibilities are truly endless, but personally I’d start by tossing a bunch into some ghoulishly good spiked punch.

Lobster Baby CostumeI dare you to resist the urge to burst into songs from The Little Mermaid after you dress your adorable little girl or boy in this bright and cheerful lobster outfit. Perhaps the early exposure to seafood will also curb any chance that your baby will develop into a picky non-seafood eater. If you’re still looking for a costume of your own to go along with your bouncing crustacean might I suggest a stick of butter. Or is that too dark?

Pillsbury Pumpkin CookiesI don’t usually advocate things of the “slice and bake” nature but all bets are off when said cookies are stamped with adorable grinning pumpkins. Admittedly, they don’t taste as good as homemade, but kids will absolutely gobble up a plate of these treats without any questions asked. Plus there’s very little clean-up and you’ll feel comfortable allowing them to help you bake this quick dessert.
