No Tricks. All Treats.


Bewitching Bites: Treat Your Sweet Tooth (And Protect It Too!)

Halloween is full of decadent and delicious treats. There’s no harm in indulging for the day…as long as you remember to brush! Choose toothpaste that works hard for you, like ARM & HAMMERTruly Radiant Toothpaste.This multitasking toothpaste not only cleans and whitens teeth, but also goes beyond the surface to strengthen and repair tooth enamel for a radiant smile in just 5 days!* In fact, it’s clinically proven to whiten teeth. So, go ahead…enjoy some ghoulishly good, easy-to-prepare treats like the ones below.

Evil Eyeballs – Looking for some fun? Drain syrup from one can of lychees. Fill each lychee with strawberry preserves and a blueberry. Skewer with a toothpick to keep everything together, and use it to garnish your punch or favorite cocktails.1

Chocolate Candy Apples – We’ve got this classic covered. Insert lollipop sticks into Granny Smith apples at the stem. Place your favorite chopped nuts and candies on separate plates and set aside. Melt dark, milk, or white chocolate in a double boiler. Dip apples in the melted chocolate to coat, then roll in candy and place on a sheet of wax paper. Allow to set.2

Spooky Spiderweb Cupcakes – Intricate looking, but so easy. Using frosted cupcakes, draw concentric circles on top with black decorating gel. Then drag the end of a toothpick from the center to the outer edges. Do this in six places around the circle to create the web. Press a plastic spider ring into the top.3

Strawberry Ghosts – A sure favorite for kids and their mummies. Follow a traditional recipe to create white chocolate, dipped strawberries. While the chocolate is still wet, immediately press in two, miniature, chocolate chips for eyes. Freeze for five minutes. Then, melt milk chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Use a toothpick to draw a chocolate mouth on each face.4

Goopy Graveyard – Dig up some fun. Fill clear plastic cups, alternating between pudding and crushed, chocolate cookies. Write “R.I.P.” with icing on a store-bought sugar cookie and insert the cookie into the top to create a headstone. Add pumpkin candies as decoration or, for extra creepy fun, push gummy worms into the “ground” as if they’re slithering out.5

When you go all out, Halloween can be a scream! Dare to enjoy all the oooey, gooey, goodness the day has to offer with ARM & HAMMER Truly Radiant Toothpaste. For an extra boost of clean, try it with an ARM & HAMMER Spinbrush Truly Radiant Battery-Powered Toothbrush. They remove 100% more plaque than a manual brush, so you can smile without fear.
