Monroe, Wisconsin (PRWEB) October 01, 2012
With Halloween spending predicted to be on the rise for 2012, consumers are preparing for the fastest growing holiday of the year. Food retailers like The Swiss Colony bakery, http://www.swisscolony.com, have introduced new novelty desserts to keep up with demand.
Costume parties for kids and adults are increasingly popular and offer hosts a chance to decorate their homes with scary decorations. Along with bobbing for apples and watching horror movies, Halloween party goers can enjoy spooky finger food, eerie beverages and haunted desserts.
Swiss Colony’s Halloween line up leads with rich chocolate ganache Skeleton Truffles ($25.95) and Creature Cake Balls ($19.95). Both are artistically hand-decorated in the Wisconsin-based bakery. Another new festive sweet is a delectable box of Mini Halloween Petits Fours ($19.95) that spells out “Happy Halloween” and adorned with seasonal colored frosting. Halloween themed gift tins filled with Mini Butter Toffee ($20.95) made with Wisconsin butter and Jelly Belly® Monster Mash Mix ($21.95) can be artfully displayed on a buffet table or given as a special gift.
Year after year, customers clamor for the bakery’s most popular Fall item, Spiced Pumpkins ($19.95). Each little round orange pumpkin is filled with a moist pumpkin cake wrapped around real cream cheese filling. It’s the perfect bite-sized sweet for an afternoon of pumpkin carving.
Back by popular demand is the delicately spiced Pumpkin Bark ($20.95) that was developed in Swiss Colony’s candy kitchen. The luscious chocolate bark is packaged in a festive gold tin and can be served alongside pumpkin pie after Thanksgiving dinner.
“Our specialty Halloween desserts sell out every year,” says says Becky Henke, VP of Food at The Swiss Colony. “Order early for the best selection.”
Seasonal sweet and savory treats can be found online at http://www.swisscolony.com , in the hard-copy catalog and on Google catalogs. Find Halloween by using the “Shop by Occasion” tab at the top of the website. Consumers can also “Shop by Price” or “Shop by Category,” which makes searching for party treats and gifts easy.
