Halloween and Christmas bring out the best treats! Whether they are special flavors or have themed-packages, kids love them and it really gets you into the holiday season.

Don’t you love the holiday season? We miss it when it’s over and as soon as September arrives we begin looking forward to it. But it really sets in once October enters, that’s when you can’t go into any aisle at the store without spotting a Halloween-themed or flavored treat! I’m talking pumpkins on everything and different shades of orange and black!

What are the best treats to buy that your kids will absolutely love? Make their day with one (or all) of our six favorites: 

Brownie Pumpkins: These are from Little Debbie and are adorable! As if a brownie is tough for a kid to resist, try adding these to your pantry. Pro tip — I highly recommend you store these in your refrigerator, they taste SO much better. Not just Brownie Pumpkins, though, but most pastries, especially those that have chocolate or frosting. In this case, the Brownie Pumpkins are regular brownies with orange frosting designed to look like a pumpkin. These are perfect for an after school treat or dessert.

Halloween Goldfish: The same cheesy flavor in Halloween-themed packages! If your kid loves to stay on trend with the latest, this is definitely a treat to buy them for their school lunch. What I love best about these is that they are available in boxes that include 24 individually wrapped bags! The suggested retail price is $8.69 — what a steal! These are also great to give out on Halloween.

Frosted Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts: Let’s be honest, pumpkin-flavors are mostly for adults. Most children aren’t into pumpkin spice or similar flavors. They enjoy the shape of a pumpkin, especially on one of their favorite treats, but probably not pumpkin-pie. However, I found these Frosted Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts to be pretty irresistible. It’s a quick breakfast and on-the-go snack.

Fall Cakes: Bringing Little Debbie back again with their Fall Cakes. These come in two varieties — chocolate and vanilla, both topped with fall colored sprinkles! Same flavors your family is used to, but with a new look to spice things up and help set your fall 2019 mood!

Pumpkin Butter: This Pumpkin Butter from Harry & David is not only delicious, but so easy to apply on any toast or bagel for breakfast, a snack, or dinner! Instead of battling with peanut butter, switch to Pumpkin Butter and accept that fall is here. This sweet butter is too good for your kids to resist.

Pumpkin Truffles: As mentioned above, not all kids are into pumpkin spice or similar flavors, and that’s why Simply Chocolate’s Pumpkin Truffles are perfect! These are pumpkin, but the pumpkin flavor is not overpowering! Even those who don’t enjoy pumpkin too much, will love these!

Are there any other fall treats you believe should be added to the list?
