We spent Halloween evening at our local church's Trunk or Treat event, where people dress up and hand out candy to the community kiddos. It's safe for the kids and fun for everyone. This was our second year together at the event. Last year we dressed as Robin Hood and Maid Marian (I was almost universally mistaken for Shrek). This year we decided to dress as a 20's gangster and flapper (one disturbingly well educated little girl actually asked if I was a 'pimp'):
We had a great time decorating the back of Tammy's Liberty for the event. We found a CD of Charelston big band music at Hastings to top it off and really enjoyed handing candy out to about 300 kids.
Okay, now on to the soda!
In addition to experimenting with making our own sodas we're also enjoying picking up unique small-batch sodas and trying them. A couple weeks back we stopped in at The Candy Co. in Oklahoma City's Bricktown. They sell gelato, candy and a good variety of bottled sodas. We picked out seven (they were running a pick six, get one free deal) and brought them home to enjoy.
We'll be trying more soon. Let us know if you try something new and interesting!
