Grocery List Ideas
Ask yourself, what food items would be a challenge for your family? Do you need some assistance? Check out the following ideas.
Edible Insects: There is a wide selection of edible insects available at your local specialty shop or online.
Bugs in a Sucker: A sucker is a perfect chance to eat a little sweet before getting down to the bug.
Chocolate Covered Bugs: Other bugs come covered in chocolate. For many, eating chocolate-covered larvae is easier.
Pickled Eggs: Pickled eggs are an acquired taste. Many find the soft squishy pickled eggs a challenge to eat.
Rattlesnake: For many, Eating a snake is definitely a challenge. But a rattlesnake can add an extra element of fear.
Gummy Bugs: If you have younger children who may want to join the fun but will not try other real insects, purchase gummy bugs. Eating a gummy worm or other insects may be a challenge to younger children.
Fruit or Vegetable: The produce section is another place to look for food challenge options. If your family has never tried a turnip, radish, leek, pomegranate, avocado, or dragon fruit, add these to your food fear challenge night. The fruits and vegetables are a fun addition.
Your Halloween Food Challenge Night
Keep in mind, there is no right or wrong way to set up for your Halloween food challenge night.
