Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Are you trick or treating, or handing out candy to trick or treaters? What will kiddos get if they visit your house? Maybe a gummi eyeball?

Haribo Smurfs

Haribo Smurfs [Review]

I once bought Haribo Smurfs waaay back in 2009, when I was on vacation in France. There, they were Haribo Schtroumpfs, which was fun to say.

It involves lots of skeletons and skulls for…
