No surprise-Halloween candy sales are racking up registers to more than $2.6 billion estimated for last year-with $7 billion expected to be spent on the holiday festivities generally speaking.
And why not-it's fun, no gifts expected other than "tricks or treats," no family obligations and the parties are usually local...
Which is why this increasingly adult excuse of a good time...costumes included-is turning into a night of good times---with foods and drinks themed accordingly.
-a candy-)... and our fav-the classic Necco wafers!
Our Picks-The affordable- the balanced sugar-acid- aromatic slightly fermented RELAX Riesling (we found online for under $10.00)-with a hint of citrus... and the drier 2014 Blue Fish Original Dry Riesling $11-a sophisticated bargain of ripe peach, lemon, tart cherry and mineral notes-both are great for the crowds of over 21 witches and goblins...or no doubt this year...costumed Presidential candidate masks/attire- which in certain circles-are a scary sight indeed LOL.
