When I think about Halloween I think about lots of goodies that your kiddos get when they go out Trick-or-Treating but lets face it once you become to old to go Trick-or-Treating it’s kind of a bummer not getting the loads of yummy candies that you used to stock up on that one night of the year that would last you well past Christmas so you have to wait until you have kids, nieces or nephews to cash in on the loot well….that was until I found the wonderful Halloween gift baskets at Gourmet Gift Baskets that allow even the most grown up of grown ups the chance to enjoy all the yummy rewards of Trick-or-Treating without having to go themselves!

No Tricks...Only Treats Halloween Gift Basket™ to review and I have to say my little “Bug” was beyond excited when the basket arrived (just have a look at the next picture!) and I have to say I was pretty excited myself even thought I don’t really eat much Halloween candy (curse stupid diets, right?) but I did have to give this basket a good look over and I was very pleased at the selection of goodies that were in the basket, I think it has just about every piece of candy that I have grown up with and always loved getting at Halloween!!
A little about the No Tricks...Only Treats Halloween Gift Basket™:

Inside they'll find a full 3-pounds of top shelf Halloween treats from all the top brands including Snickers, Twix, Nestle Crunch, Reese's, Kit-Kat, Butterfinger, Hershey, Starburst, Sweet Tarts, Nerds, and tons more! This year, send the best, send them one of our “No Tricks...Only Treats” Halloween baskets!
Ingredients:· 1.5 lbs. of Assorted Chocolate Candies from Mars, Nestle and Hershey's Companies - Each of these Halloween gifts includes brand name candy bars like Milky Way, Snickers, Three Musketeers, Twix, Baby Ruth, 100 Grand, Nestle Crunch, Butterfinger, Hershey Bar, Kit-Kat, Almond Joy, Plain M & Ms, Whoppers, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

· Decorative Halloween Bucket - This sturdy, decorative Halloween pumpkin bucket holds a full 3 lbs. of candy, and will be around for years to come.
Ok, so know that you know what’s included you can see why it was so hard to keep my little fingers out of the bucket…but it does look amazing sitting on my coffee table for not only “Bug” and Chad to satisfy their sweet tooth but our other guest that come to visit and the candy bucket has been a huge hit!
I’m also loving that once this bucket is emptied (which the way it’s going won’t be to much longer) that “Bug” can take this bucket on our annual Trick-or-Treat outing and to our trip to Boo at the Zoo at our local Zoo! The bucket is so sturdy that I have a feeling that it will be a permanent part of our holiday décor and our trick-or-treat outings!
The entire family could not have been more happy with the No Tricks...Only Treats Halloween Gift Basket™ that we were sent to review and it has really gotten me thinking about giving one out as a treat to my sister away at collage since she is too old to go Trick-or-Treating but also loves all the free goodies that come along with the outings!
