Food Me Once, Shame On Me… # 5

Welcome back to Food Me Once… with your emphatic-eater-extraordinaire, Chef Benny LaLingua, returning for a series of squeamish Halloween related posts! Today, we’ll be looking at “healthy Halloween treats,” and next week we’ll be following up with “Edible Undeadable!” (which was my title, btw!). Click the images to link to the original sites, where you may find recipes and other deadly-delicious delights…

Strawberries & Scream


I love a snack that screams back.

If I were limited to one-word reviews, this one would be: “Absolutely fantastic!” A simple and easy way to turn any ordinary strawberry into an anthropomorphized being, pleading for dear life, begging not to be eaten. It’s Halloween! Take it from me, these anguished expressions of strawberry dismay camouflage a perfect storm of deliciousness.  The subtle balance of white and dark chocolates collide with the sweet, yet tart, strawberry victim, whose silent screams of terror will ring out in your belly for hours!

Horror Hors D’oeuvres


Might I suggest a bloody marinara dipping sauce? Some sliced parmesan to represent cartilage?

Bread lovers usually have a bone to pick with Halloween’s candy-centric biases, but not this Dia de Los Muertos! A fun and delicious way to enjoy our own mortality! That’s right, boils and ghouls, death awaits so bring out the cheese!


Disembodied finger-lickin’ good!

A perfect compliment to any bone-themed bread dish: finger-food. Try these delicious digits out at this year’s Halloween party. We guarantee you’ll guests will be saying, “Hi” at some point during the evening. Probably the very beginning.




Another easy-queasy treat for the fetid festivities! These no-muss, no-fuss yogurt-dipped banana-banshees offer another healthy alternative to candy-corn, lollipops, tootsie rolls, and the like. Cross over to the other side of paranormal party snacking! Indulge to your still-beating heart’s delight! This Halloween, these macabre munchies will restore your vitality while you party into the afterlife.

Be sure to tune in again for “Edible Undeadable!” where we’ll explore yet another smattering of extra-sensory snacking!

  1. The professor found those first three fellows quite alarming. It is obvious to the professor that they are distressed about something. Has anyone taken the time to calm them down? Enjoyed the pictures and creativity. Who is Punchyish?

  2. Adorable:) Looooove the strawberries!!

  3. Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions?

      Hi there! Thanks for checking out the site! It’s been inactive for a while, but I’ll be posting regularly again soon! As far as advise, I’d suggest starting out with a free site like WordPress, so you can get your bearings before shelling out money. WordPress is great for blogging & has a nice built in community. The real trick is consistency. Writing frequently and updating regularly will help you build a fan base the most! Best of luck!
