To think just because you turn something orange doesn't mean it's Halloweeny.

Mr Kipling 'Fiendish Fancies' being today's example. hmm

AgentZigzag Sun 20-Oct-13 13:07:54

Heinz have some 'halloween baked beans' out hmm

Oooh, scary beans.

Sparklingbrook Sun 20-Oct-13 13:10:07

Have they Agent? Oh no that's really taking the pee isn't it? confused

I think I have some Cadburys Spooky Fingers whatever they are.

Sparklingbrook Sun 20-Oct-13 13:11:51

I tell a lie-they are mini Animals Halloweenies. I will open a bag and inspect.....

Sparklingbrook Sun 20-Oct-13 13:14:42

I've just been looking for a piccy of it but can't find one, the beans have little horns and faces on them - in the picture on the packaging, probably just normal beans inside.

Just accidentally hid the thread and thought I'd spookily posted on a ghost thread grin

AgentZigzag Sun 20-Oct-13 13:15:29

But they were fifty fucking pee!

50p for a can of beans??

Not the staple student diet any more then?

Sparklingbrook Sun 20-Oct-13 13:16:27

Here they are Agent. Ans spooky spaghetti. confused

FarelyKnuts Sun 20-Oct-13 13:21:47

Pray tell... what is with this "halloweening" fucking everything in sight??
Why must my biscuits and beans and other ordinary food stuffs be halloweened?

Will I suddenly feel more spooky as I tuck into my beans on toast? WTAF?

Sparklingbrook Sun 20-Oct-13 13:23:48

Exactly Farely. Cadburys and Heinz seem to have jumped on the bandwagon. Oh and there are something by Monster munch called 'Webs'. confused

I don't mind a bit of Halloween but this is all a bit bonkers.

AgentZigzag Sun 20-Oct-13 13:23:55

Spooky spag I can understand, but how are the beans halloweeny?

Hahaha it's just reminded me of this excellent 'game', very funny grin

Heartbrokenmum73 Sun 20-Oct-13 13:24:33

I wish Halloween 'celebratory shit' would fuck the fuck off back to America. It's got ridiculously out of hand now and I'm seriously pissed off with being asked for new costumes each year (no!) or to make costumes (double no!) or if I will take dc begging for sweets from strangers trick or treating (triple no!).

And as for kids in a shitty mask knocking the door and saying 'trickle treat'. Fuck.off.

superbagpuss Sun 20-Oct-13 13:25:40

Halloween fondent fancies are the best ones ever

I love them so much grin

NorbertDentressangle Sun 20-Oct-13 13:26:23

Is this why I keep seeing young girls in orange face paint everywhere?

....oh no, silly me, my mistake, its badly applied fake tan and foundation! wink

Pobblewhohasnotoes Sun 20-Oct-13 13:27:03

The whole of TOWIE are orange, that's quite scary.

superbagpuss Sun 20-Oct-13 13:27:08

Im torn about trickle treating

I don't want dc to go and beg
dh wants them to have a bit of fun

DC are four, its yet to be decided

AngryFrank Sun 20-Oct-13 13:27:58

isn't orange the official colour of Halloween? It does seem everything gets the Halloween treatment these days, even beer. I was drinking Hobgoblin and Pendle witches brew last night down my local

Sparklingbrook Sun 20-Oct-13 13:28:49

DS2 is allowed to go Trick or Treating but is only allowed to go to houses that are obviously celebrating. We put a pumpkin with a candle in the front window round here to show it's ok.

Sparklingbrook Sun 20-Oct-13 13:29:18

Is it Orange for Halloween because Pumpkins are Orange?

AgentZigzag Sun 20-Oct-13 13:30:19

Hey, you should start a thread about it Heartbroken wink

(please don't grin)

grin at the halloween TOWIE's.

Are spiders not animals? confused

I love Halloween...it's better than Christmas grin

But then I love any excuse to dress up as a zombie and scare people...

gordyslovesheep Sun 20-Oct-13 13:50:05

I love trick or treating - we also only knock at Halloween houses - and I always get way too much tat in ...sadly this means I have to eat lots of chocolate to stop it going to waste

I do dislike to obviously money grabbing band wagon jumping though - pah 'special edition LABELS' my arse

gordyslovesheep Sun 20-Oct-13 13:51:16

ScarletLady I do Zombie as well - complete with wounds and zombie lenses - scares the living daylights out of all the twee fairies that come knocking grin

Aaah it's all a bit of fun isn't it though? Sure it's commercial as hell but I like it. I like spooky shit anyway though, so it's just nice to be able to buy more of it at a certain time of year.

A colleague got married a couple of years ago on Halloween so had a spooky theme to the wedding. Lots of orange & black and spray on cobwebs.

Their wedding cake was a tiered stack of Mr Kipling orange halloween cakes. It was fab. thlsmile
