    No tricks here! Local treats for your Halloween celebration

    “Give me all the candy!” – A quote by me. That I use every single day.


    I never need an excuse to indulge in the sweet treats. I can’t help it. I have two large drawers at home full of a ridiculous assortment of all-things-sugar. Chocolate, sour gummies, baked goods…  I try to tell myself that this sugary-sweet collection is just for visitors and special occasions but let’s be honest—they are for exactly any moment I’m home.


    Lancaster has some of the best places for sweets and I happily indulge my sweet tooth daily. And for Halloween, this community has some of the greatest candy shops and desserts to make your celebration truly tantalizing.


    Here are 5 spots to hit up for your Halloween party spread.
