(Not So) Scary Halloween Kitchen Towels

Halloween Print Kitchen Towels

Soon, little ‘boils’ and ‘ghouls’ will be dressing in costumes and hitting the neighborhood streets going door to door asking for candy. One day out of the year, this surprisingly works! Perhaps this was all a big scheme cooked up by candy-makers, or perhaps it is the threat of tricks that earn these little costumed kids their treats. In any event, one thing is for certain: those little goblins are gonna come back sticky and covered in chocolate.

Be at the ready with these Halloween Kitchen Towels. They probably won’t be scaring anybody with their fun designs, but that’s okay — certainly, the prospect of candy-covered fingers touching everything in the house is much scarier than a smiling Frankenstein or ghost!

Watermelon Slicer

Melon Cantaloupe Watermelon Stainless Steel Slicer Splitter Creates 12 Equal Slices

Watermelons can be imposing. I mean, they’re huge! But they can be beaten. Imagine a fight between a watermelon and a pumpkin or even a jack o’ lantern; I think we all know who would win. Take this Melon Cantaloupe Watermelon Stainless Steel Slicer Splitter for example: it is of the familiar push-down-to-slice variety, but huge enough to tackle a watermelon. Of course, just because it is a huge, gigantic slicer doesn’t mean it will work. It would appear a good deal of force is still necessary to push it through the great green monster — but at least it won’t be grinning at you mockingly while you try!

***UPDATE 9/9/15*** … and the watermelon wins! This thing is getting slammed in the reviews. About as hard as it must be to try to make this watermelon slicer actually work!

Happy Halloween!

The Pumpkin Tap Kit by KegWorks

You know what to do if your pumpkin survives pumpkin-smashing night, right? Turn it into a pumpkin drink dispenser with The Pumpkin Tap Kit!

Actually, you might want to use a fresh one, considering the tap turns the gourd into a big ol’ drink dispenser. And besides, those jack-o-lantern eyes, nose and mouth kind of make it hard to fill up with liquid.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Heirloom Pumpkin Serveware Collection

Considering the amount of jack-o’-lanterns out in the wild tonight, I thought it might be appropriate to examine another use for the famous gourd. Therefore, we show the Heirloom Pumpkin Serveware Collection.

Consisting of tureens, dipping bowls, salad plates and the like, the tableware is… what’s that you say? Just get to the jack-o’-lantern? Oh very well, we can’t resist a big orange glowing round thing around these parts either!

Happy Halloween!

Damn kids won’t set my porch on fire this Halloween

Pumpkin Pal Stake

Pumpkins must not mind being impaled by sharp objects. Around this time of year they do seem to always have that stupid grin on their faces. I’d say that’s proof positive that using the Pumpkin Pal Stake to illuminate the carcass jack-o’-lantern this Halloween is a-okay. Besides, using two AAA batteries won’t set the porch on fire when those damn teenagers knock the pumpkin over. Get off my lawn!

Pumpkin Lights scream for no one

Pumpkin Lights with Remote Control

Halloween is creeping up. Time to start planning for some spookiness. While these Pumpkin Lights with Remote Control are certainly a neat idea, I can’t help think that they could be better. Sure, having a flameless light inside your jack-o’-lantern is a good thing, especially when it means you don’t have to reach into the increasingly goopy interior to turn it on. (Assuming, of course, it survives Halloween night.) I just can’t help thinking that something is missing.
