Drink Hot Dr. Pepper as an Old School Holiday Treat

Hot Dr Pepper

The ad above from the 60’s makes no bones about the fact that we should all be drinking hot Dr. Pepper this Christmas season.  I’m thinking this is one of those things where some executive was irate about losing potential customers to things like egg nog, or punch every Christmas and ordered his marketers to come up with some new concoction to move more Dr. Pepper.

This must not have been a one hit wonder either, because I’ve seen ads featuring this idea from several different years.  It actually doesn’t seem too bad either, so I may give this a try this year.  I think it would better suite my tastes if I switched out the lemon slice with a slice of an orange.  How about you?

2017 Halloween Food Finds

One of the best things about fall, and the Halloween season in particular, is all the cool Halloween food that comes out this time of year.  Some you can always count on seeing, while others are only on the shelves for a year or two, and some we may never see again.  That’s why it’s important to know when and where to find all the various tasty treats of the season.  This is probably only the first of many posts of this type for me this year, as I’m sure I will keep finding stuff as we get closer.  For today though, here is what I found while out at my local markets.  Oh, and be sure to check out all the cool stuff Dinosaur Dracula has found so far at 2017’s Best Halloween Junk Food, Part 1.


Halloween PEZ

Halloween PEZ Dispensers

PEZ always seems to come out with cool dispensers for various occasions, and this Halloween is no exception.  We’ve got the usual suspects like The Mummy, Dracula, and the Jack-o-Lantern, but I’m not exactly sure what the third one in line is.

If you can’t find these at you local store, don’t worry, Amazon has them here.
