Sweet Action's Halloween-Candy Treat Will Give You a Chill

Halloween candy is typically reserved for good ghouls and boys while trick or treating — an annual overindulgence that dates back to the early 1900s in its modern, send-your-kids-out-begging form. But even for big kids yearning for a sugar fix pre-All Hallows' Eve, its time to cave in to your sweet tooth.

Forgo the fall diet (because everyone needs a sugar high once in awhile, and pumpkin-spice-everything is so last year) and head to Sweet ActionSoBo’s favorite ice cream shop is celebrating the scary season with trick-or-treat ice cream, a dairy delicacy containing every type of bite-sized candy bars the creamery could get its chilly hands on. We’re talking KitKats, Snickers, Heath bars, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, M&M's for a pop of color — the works. But, if you’re not down for the added insulin rush, you can try one of Sweet Action's other festive seasonal flavors like pumpkin pie, cinnamon-gingerbread or ginger-peach.
