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.

  1. Geeez! You get the coolest, tastiest looking treats in the mail!!! xD and you have a very cute chin!

  2. i’d choose coconut oil. It’s a food and it’s supposedly really good for the skin, although I haven’t tried it myself…

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

    lol ive seen people with bbq chicken and ice cream do just that,but would want something expensive…give me steak

  4. I would like to have my face covered in hummus, because licking it off would be wonderful!

  5. Well if I had to choose something, I’d say ice cream. That would at least be yummy to lick off. 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Probably peanut butter. My hubby and kids love peanut butter. It could be fun watching them take it off my chin.

  7. I guess, if I had to have something stuck to my face, I’d pick something like lettuce. Then people would think I was all super healthy or something. Or gross, whichever.

  8. I’d choose to have chocolate syrup stuck to my face. I’m sure my husband can find a way to remove it 😉

  9. Lol, chocolate and peanut butter, btw your chin is not large lol! Great encouragement from spouse

  10. You’re hilarious! And your chin is lovely! Not sure I would want food stuck to my face though… hmmm…..maybe a straw? Connected to Wild Cherry Pepsi? 🙂

  11. That was hilarious! But your chin is fine. And your hubby needs smacked. Mine called me a “ton o’ fun”. while I was pregnant for our son. he also called me a manitee. Men. I’d have chocolate stuck to my face. Maybe. Or maybe a blue raspberry sucker, except I have a creepy long tongue and then it’d always be blue.

  12. I’d have to say a big lump of caffeine so I could just take a lick every time I need a pick me up!

  13. A blob of peanut butter. i LIVE off of peanut butter! haha the visual picture is hilarious. it would look like a giant sticky mole on your face. gross. Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. Chocolate cake, the thin layer kind, with about 12 or 14 layers, I love it, but I am no good at making one, I tried:(

  15. I would say a giant slab of dark chocolate because yum.

    Also, I skimmed the pics before I read this post and your chin is not the first thing I noticed when I saw your face, seriously. I noticed big, kind eyes, good skin and a beautiful smile. You are fixating. We all do it. You are lovely.

  16. If I could have a piece of food stuck to my face, I would choose a mustard seed ( at least it is small).

  17. I’d choose cookie dough, I guess. Although I’m pretty sure it would drive me insane having food stuck to my face.

  18. I’d definitely love to try these! I don’t see meat on your face but I love how husbands have a great way of looking past our slabs of whatever and love us anyway, haha! If I had to have something stuck on my face, I’d choose something I could work with….maybe a tortilla! I feel like makeup would cover that up, right?

  19. By the way your chin looks great. I would love to win these crackers, they sound delicious.

  20. I’d love to have Banana Fosters all over my face, made with real rum sauce so that I can be deliriously happy from it. I love that dessert. Email: yona(at)pricelesswriters.com

  21. I would want caramel. Sometimes when you eat caramel there is a residue on your lips that you can taste for an hour.

  22. LOL….great question. I would like to have a big blob of maple sugar candy stuck to my face….hopefully within reach of my tongue so I could enjoy it.

  23. For me, the one item I wouldn’t mind having stuck to my face is maple syrup. I love the sweetness of maple syrup that is so different from other sweets.

  24. Yumm Dark chocolate – although I <3 the others dark chocolate tends to help curb my addiction faster …but even though that sometimes helps…at certain times of the month it just doesn't. AND your chin isn't huge although the second picture does look like it but only because your mouth is open LOL thanks for the laugh!

  25. I’d have to say chocolate for sure! But peanut butter would be good too as it wouldn’t fall all over the place and make a mess! haha

  26. Definitely some sort of milk chocolate, marshmallow and coconut bon bon mix.
    lisalmg25 at gmail dot com

  27. Ramen Noodles – because they eventually will dry up and flake off on their own and they are tasty. etotschinger at yahoo dot com

  28. If it’s 5:30 in the morning, and I’m still stumbling around the house trying to wake up, I would be more than happy to have very strong coffee dripping down from each corner of my mouth 🙂 But, let’s not try to hard to imagine that, okay?

  29. that cream thats inside Yodels or Hostess cupcakes..(or Drakes devil dogs, etc) man that stuff is goooood- never get tired of it… I would constantly be wiping it off my face and eating it

  30. stuck to my face… you mean like I’d fall into the candy display and a variety of dark/milk wchocolate would stick? Could I also have those chocolates with a variety of almonds, caramel and peanuts inserted? Now if you are implying that they will remain stuck to my face and not be a source of snacking, then lets go with a colorful array of M&Ms that won’t melt

  31. Chocolate 🙂
    I don’t do selfies either I’m a bit of a freckle face lol… But my freckles are brown so if I’m going to have something stuck on my face chocolate would be logical with any luck it would blend it!

  32. I would not mind having an entire Thanksgiving dinner on my face! I am fairly certain God created that day just for me! Lol! The best part is that family would most likely be gathered around so that would make it a win/win!

  33. I think i would choose vanilla pudding. I love vanilla pudding and it loves me too

  34. I would choose chocolate chip cookie dough! i absolutely love that stuff 🙂

  35. i would definitely want white chocolate and nuts and raisins and some skittles and pretzels and… they can stick to my face as long as they want as long as once in a while they slide on down and make me smile. 😀
