Halloween is a theme party that is nice to spend with children and friends. Halloween has also been on the rise here in Finland, and people of different ages dress up as skeletons, ghosts, vampires or witches. During Halloween, a group of children dressed in fancy dress may appear at the door, shouting: trick or treat? Children are given sweets.
Adults like to organize their own masquerade parties. Good options from our selection for the Halloween party table are Chocolate Balls, Strawberry Licorice, Hot Salmiakki and various flavors of popular Halloween theme colored licorice.
