Hallowe'en

Wishing you all a very scary (scary in a safe way, of course) Halloween!

No, I am not crazy enough to give homemade caramels to the trick-or-treaters. These are for my coworkers. The trick-or-treaters will get mass produced, individually wrapped gobs of sugar and chocolate that have never been touched by human hands. It's sad, really. Here's a thought: anyone who shows up on my doorstep tonight and yells "merino!" instead of "trick or treat!" should get a caramel. If I have any left, that is.

Happy Halloween! It is sad that you can't give out handmade candies. I remember when getting a homemade candy apple was a real treat on Halloween.

Here I was thinking I had posted this comment to a different blog! I guess I do sort of live close enough.

Happy Halloween! Those caramel looks yummy. Halloween is not widely celebrated in Australia.

Drats. When I first saw this, I thought of running over to Trick or Treat at your house. Your caramels are exquisite! Slightly comforted to know it wouldn't have done me any good. A day late: Merino! Merino! Trick or Merino?

I wish I'd come to your house! The caramel would have been great, but I think I would have kept saying "Merino!" until you gave me merino! :)

What Lynn said - Merino! I'm sure the caramels are long gone by now, though!
