Halloween is probably my favorite holiday. I love the weather, the excuse to wear a costume, and– of course– the candy.
But I know some of you do not share in the candy love, and want to find a way to keep you and your kids away from the sweet stuff. I don’t have any kids, but I imagine if I did, stuff like these ‘candy corn’ fruit cups would cause a reaction something like, “Jesus, Mom. Do you think we’re dumb? This is not candy.” And yet I can’t resist.
So this isn’t candy, but it is canned fruit and whipped cream… so use the word “healthy” at your own risk. Probably still better for you than candy corn. Maybe.
Another point in its favor is that assembly is pretty damn easy, even if you didn’t bother to read the directions, like, at all. And even if, after reading the directions, you realize you should have drained the pineapple. Oops.
Turns out it doesn’t matter much how you do this– it’s still going to look like a candy corn because of the colors, and it’s still going to taste nothing like a candy corn because it’s not a fucking candy corn. It’s fruit.
