Local Halloween Treats & Eats So Good It’s Scary


Trending Now


The food scene in Los Angeles right now is so good it’s scary. So there’s no shortage of places to get your grub on Halloween style this year, and it’s not all sweets. Take your ghouls and ghosts out for vegan hot dogs from Frankenstand and top it off with candy corn flavored ice cream at Salt and Straw. No matter what your frightfully picky family is craving, there’s something for everyone. Trick and treats guaranteed.

Spooktacular Ice Cream

Salt and Straw’s spooktacular ice cream series will send a chill down your spine and give your taste buds a treat. Our picks are Essence of Ghost (smoky and delicious for grown ups) and the Great Candycopia (every Halloween favorite candy, but house made and in a butterscotch base, guaranteed to drive kids wild). Your little goblins will also love the Candy Corn flavor which is indeed like candy corn, but better. But beware, only the truly adventurous will try a scoop of Creepy Crawly Critters, which features real bugs (ants and crickets) encased in amber colored sugar surrounded by bright green sherbet. Save this one for the adults, it’s made with a bit of tequila. You’ll just get major parental props for eating it without flinching.
