“Good food is not a luxury, it’s a right.” This quote right here is everything I stand for. A couple of months ago, I wrote a blog post called “Make America Organic Again“, where I touched on the topic that organic food is a right. This week I went to the new Lucky’s Market that just opened up in Plantation, Florida ( a suburb of Fort Lauderdale). As I walked up to the cash register, I saw this huge quote hung up on the wall. It said “Good food is not a luxury, it’s a right.” I saw it and I immediately took a picture of it. The meaning of that quote is something that I strongly believe in.
What is the most traditional Halloween candy you could possibly think of? CANDY CORN! Candy corn is delicious and nostalgic. Traditional candy corn is made with artificial colors and flavors. Sweet’s Candy Company created a natural candy corn. It is made with non-GMO ingredients, no artificial colors, and it is gluten free. The original candy corn is layered with white, orange, and yellow colors. This brand contains a full color on each piece. The colors are made with fruit and vegetable extracts like pumpkin, carrot, and apple. They smell like marshmallows with a hint of orange and lemon. They are delicious! I wanted to make a candy corn milkshake because 1. I love milkshakes! And 2. Because I love candy corn! . This candy corn milkshake is so easy to make! You can make candy corn milkshakes for Halloween and serve them at your parties.
These are the brands and ingredients I used to make this delicious Candy Corn Milkshake recipe. You can buy Sweet’s Candy Corn at Whole Foods Market. Also, if you want to make a candy corn rim on your glass, you can melt an organic white chocolate bar to make the candy corn stick. I used Green&Black’s organic white chocolate. You can find Green&Black’s chocolate bars at Whole Foods Market and most natural markets.
1 melted organic white chocolate bar (Green&Black's)
about 12 pieces of natural candy corn
Put all ingredients into a blender. Blend for about 30 seconds to a minute until all the candy corn is broken down and all the ingredients are well blended. Pour into a cup and top with organic whipped cream and crushed candy corn.
If you are going to make the candy corn rim do this part first.
Melt the white chocolate bar in either a double broiler on the stove or in the microwave.
Once the chocolate is melted, brush onto the rim of the cup.
Put the cup in the fridge for 30 seconds if your chocolate is melty.Make sure you don't leave it in the fridge for too long.
Take the cup out of the fridge and place the candy corn on top of the white chocolate.
Place back in fridge for 5 minutes.
Then blend your milkshake and add in to the candy corn rimmed cup.

Diane’s Sweet Heat are jams with attitude. Their tagline certainly lives up to the taste of Diane’s Sweet Heat jams.
At the Natural Products Expo West a couple of months ago, I came across Diane’s Sweet Heat booth. I tried all four flavors of the jam and I fell in love. The sweet taste of fruit mixed with some habanero heat is divine! I am not the biggest fan of spicy food but Diane’s jams are the perfect balance of sweet with a little heat. Lets just say that I did not need to rush to the nearest booth with dairy to try to take the heat away.
The jams come in 4 flavors. The flavors are Blackberry Habanero, Mango Habanero, Raspberry Habanero, and Peach Habanero. Each flavor is made with NON-GMO and natural ingredients without any artificial colors or flavors. The ingredients for each flavor are red bell peppers, pure cane sugar, fruit of the jam flavor, apple cider vinegar, fruit pectin, and habanero peppers in that order. When you open a jar of Diane’s Sweet Heat, you automatically get a delicious smell of habanero with that hint of the flavors sweetness. Again, it is the perfect balance of heat and fruit sweet.
You can enjoy Diane’s Sweet Heat jams over cream cheese, with crackers, on toast or bagels, with cheese, in a marinade for meats and vegetables, or even on top of your favorite ice cream.
Diane’s Sweet Heat is currently sold in Northern California where the jams are made. Please visit http://dianessweetheat.com to find a location where to purchase in California. For those of us who do not live in Northern California you can purchase Diane’s Sweet Heat here.

When you open the bag, you can smell the delicious fresh peanuts and chocolate. It is the perfect amount of sweet, chocolate, and roasted peanuts. This will certainly satisfy your dark chocolate and peanut butter cravings.
