FOOD  Ways to satisfy your sweet tooth with tasty treats and sweets other than Halloween candy:    Pumpkin bread  Carmel apple  Pumpkin seeds  Sweet potatoes  Apple fritters  Maple pecan buns  Pumpkin spice english muffin  Nutella-stuffed french toast  Hot coco  Apples and ice cream  Pumpkin spice-anything  Sweet potato apple soup  Chocolate peanut butter poptarts  Pumpkin bar  Carmel apple soft pretzels  Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies  Baked apple crisp  Pull-apart cinnamon roll bread  Apple strudel    PLACES  This time of the year is beautiful with vibrant colors and a crisp wind. Get outside with these fun Fall activities:    Corn maze  Pumpkin patch  Bike trails  Haunted graveyard  State park  Fall picnic  Sunflower field  Backyard bonfire  Hayride  Camping trip  Farmer’s market  Apple orchard    In my personal opinion, this is the best time of the year. With hot chocolate, sweet treats and the additional bonus of being whoever you want to be, who wouldn’t get excited? Of course, everyone has their own way of celebrating the Fall season whether that includes Halloween or not, but either way I hope that these suggestions inspire others to make the most out of this spooky time.
