Halloween Ice Cream Treats:What’s Lurking in the Mud Milkshake and Graveyard Ice Cream Plus A Funley Giveaway!!!


Today I vowed to take 3 selfie pictures for Instagram.

Just a little goal I had.  You know, get over my fears, push the envelope a bit. But, as soon as the camera flashed, and I saw the result, I realized why I NEVER take selfies.





I looked to my husband and said, horrified, “Oh. My. Gosh. My chin is huge!”

And he said, “Yeah.”

And I was like, “Yeah? Yeah? You say that like you already knew. Like this isn’t a revelation to you.”

“Well. Its always been like that. You’ve always had that extra piece of meat down there.”

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? AN EXTRA PIECE OF MEAT HANGING FROM MY FACE? Like a pork chop or a beef tenderloin???


Maybe the children will dress up as me for Halloween.

Well people. THAT. . .is real life scary.

I’ve been walking around for 38 years with a rib roast on my chin and I never knew it. But my husband did, and he didn’t seem to care.

I’m just keepin’ it real. Scary.

You want to know what else is scary? I received these in the mail and I ate them all in 2 days.

stix2 stix

Dark Chocoale, Pretzels, Caramel, Peanut butter. They were the winner for Fitness Magazine’s Healthy Snack Awards in 2011, 100% Natural, and a better for you choice than regular chocolate candy, Though I’m sure you’re probably not supposed to eat 40 a day. . .which might be why they are individually wrapped, but ummm. . . .you know.

They are so good. . . . that you will want to keep them all to yourself. But, if you don’t have an extra piece of meat hanging from your chin you may choose to share them with your husband. If you do (have an extra piece of meat hanging from your face), don’t bother. You deserve every bit of happiness you can get your hands on.

Or. . . . . if you’re the sharing meatless chin type. . .

You could make some really yummy Halloween Ice Cream Treats like What’s Lurking in the Mud Milkshake and Graveyard Ice Cream (recipes below).

But if. . . . . like I said before, you have a rack of lamb hanging on your face, you should just keep the world’s supply of Stix in the Mud to yourself, and instead share Funley’s SuperFood Crackers and Wholly Granolly Clusters.

Just like I’m about to do.

Now everyone can be happy.

Enter a comment below if you’d like to enter to win 2 Boxes of Funleys Wholly Granolly Clusters and 2 boxes of Funleys SUPER CRACKERS (remember them from my review in the summer?)





Just answer the following question in the Comments section of this post:

“If you could have any item of food stuck to your face, what would it be? ” Feel free to elaborate.


One entry per person, please. Or I’ll knock you down with my 30 pound chin.
