Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit

Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit

It is still not too late to begin planning this year's family Halloween party!  Some of our favorite childhood memories are the years we all met at Max, Harry & Jack's house for a fun pre-trick or treating Halloween dinner party.  Their mom, Karen, always had a healthy dinner planned so the kids would not dive right into their trick or treat bags before all the parents had a chance to go through the treats and weed out any suspicious looking or unwrapped “tricks”.

Other than the actual trick or treating, the kids' favorite part of the night was when Karen escorted them to a huge crafting table set up so each child had their own Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit. Karen always purchased a basic Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit from The Popcorn Factory.  Each Decorating Kit came with eight of their delicious signature Popcorn Balls and an array of decorating candy extras – basically, everything you would need to transform the yummy popcorn balls into ghoulies and ghosties and delicious things that go bump in the night. It truly was great family fun!

And best yet, now through Halloween (or while supplies last – yes The Popcorn Factory often runs out of these kits long before Halloween), you can get Get the Popcorn Ball Halloween Decorating Kit for $29.99.
Party Hearty!
