Gummy Brains Candy Horror Treat: Happy Halloween!

IT'S HALLOWEEN and we've found the perfect scary sweets to celebrate this horrifying holiday, GUMMY BRAINS!

These gross-out treats were discovered at CVS Pharmacy. We're not sure what kind of creature's brains these are, but they taste spectacular and fruity. Who knew brains tasted like fruit punch?! These organs have a nice firm, fleshy membrane and the insides are pleasantly soft and squishy.

Make sure you shamble over to your local CVS and feast on these ghastly snacks!

Wendy's Grill Skill Training Video: Burger Rap Memories

Snaxtime's first ever job was at Wendy's when we were just 16 years old. We totally remember the first day when we had to watch this rad video from 1989 that trained us how to properly grill the hamburger meat patties. This video has everything you'd ever want: a heartwarming cameo from Dave Thomas, brilliant performances from a fresh cast of actors and real employees, amazing hairstyles, a trippy rap sequence and a catchy country rock lingo at the very end!

If you don't have 15 free minutes, skip to 3:20 where the magic starts!

DQ Oreo Cheesecake Blizzard: The Blizzard Zone #BZ05

We are featuring a different Dairy Queen Blizzard flavor every month for a year!

For the month of October we wanted to try something seasonal, and although DQ is now featuring a Pumpkin Pie à la mode Blizzard, we just weren't feeling it. And then we realized, Halloween is all about the sweet treats, so just about any flavor would taste festive during this ghoulish month. We opted for the Oreo Cheesecake Blizzard, a flavor we had been wanting to try.

This flavor is by far the best we've had to date! We asked for extra Oreo pieces and cheesecake chunks and the combination of crunchy chocolate cookie, sweet creme and tangy cheesecake with cold, creamy vanilla soft serve was the ultimate flavor and texture combo. If you're in the mood for a sinful dessert and have the calories to spare, treat yourself and try this tricked out Blizzard variety!

Tulcingo Bakery: Mexican Pasteleria in Corona Queens

He hopped on the R Train to Times Square then transferred to the 7 towards Queens. Today he wanted to get lost. The train shot out of the dark tunnel and filled with yellow sunlight. From above, he could see pastel Ugly Betty houses in intricate grids. He got off somewhere in the 100s and began his journey. He wandered under the elevated tracks, soaking in the bustling storefronts and dilapidated signs. He bought ocean-scented shaving cream and a white plastic bowl decorated with strawberries and flowers from a 99¢ discount store. Back on the sidewalk, he noticed that mostly everyone was flavored like him and he loved it. He felt like a lump of soft butter blended into the icing of this colorful place.

A Mexican bakery called his name from across the street. TULCINGO BAKERY.  Strange and beautiful cakes and pastries greeted him when he entered. The air smelled of sugar, yeast and egg wash. He saw neon frosted sweets, glazed cheesecakes and fruity Jell-O molds like the ones he had only ever seen in the scanned pages of vintage food ads. Giant confections were dusted with white confectionary powder and crammed and swirled and twisted and cracked with vibrant pink and yellow fillings he didn't recognize. He saw a jumbo donut cut in half and stuffed with silky pudding and further down he saw a more humble donut that had no filling at all. This donut looked simple and had a lopsided hole in the middle. It was sprinkled with fine sugar. The sweet crystals glistened as they half melted onto the oily crust. The donut reminded him of himself.

$1 later he had the donut safely wrapped in a white paper bag. He whisked it home. The bag was now spotted with bleeding grease stains. He freed the donut from its suffocating confines and took in its fresh aroma. He took a bite. It tasted bright, clean and almost watery, if that was even possible. The dough was soft and the sugar gave it a sweet sandy bite. For a short time he was content, he felt appreciated and giddy. When he slept that night he dreamt of a mewing monster and cheap pizza.

Krispy Kreme Ghostbusters Doughnuts: Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and Ghost Halloween Exclusives

"Ghostbusters" (1984) is celebrating its 30th anniversary at Krispy Kreme with 2 new Halloween doughnuts inspired by the classic horror comedy! In order to get these exclusive treats, we braved the crowds of midtown to visit Pennsylvania Station, which houses Manhattan's only Krispy Kreme. It was worth the trip! These delightful doughnuts are both made with Krispy Kreme's signature light and fluffy doughnut dough, crammed with Stay Puft Marshmallow Kreme, generously iced and decorated with sugary candies. The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Doughnut is all smiles with his edible sailor hat. The Ghostbusters Doughnut is decorated with the iconic ghost emblem on top of an ectoplasm splat! And both taste great, with lots of vanilla and marshmallow flavor to keep your tastebuds entertained. It is safe to say that these are the SWEETEST doughnuts we've ever eaten. The 410 calories of sugar in each confection will make you giggle with childish glee. These naughty treats are certainly festive and fun so make sure you try one while supplies last!
