I can feel my childhood coming back to me, as I anxiously await the release of The Peanuts Movie. Some of my fondest memories of my childhood include the Peanuts gang. Every year at Halloween I looked forward to watching, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”. My all-time favorite, however, was “A Charlie Brown Christmas”. I absolutely loved this movie, and still do. When the children all sing, the memories come flowing back as if it were yesterday. I was glued to the television, while our not so Charlie Brown Christmas tree sparkled behind me. Oh, those were the best days ever.
When I was invited to shop at my local Safeway store (Safety is the official grocery partner of The Peanuts Movie), I was delighted. Shopping was going to be a little more fun, as I searched for The Peanuts Movie signs and products. As I looked around, I was impressed by all of the Halloween themed items, such as the bakery goods and floral department pictured below.
When we checked out, I saw a box of these cute The Peanuts Movie trick-or-treat bags at the end of the cash register. I was excited as I had purchased three participating products which made me eligible to receive one of these colorful bags!
When I got home I decided to make a fun little Halloween treat, using the Nestle bars I bought at Safeway.
These are little brownie bites with orange and black frosting. I placed Sally, Snoopy and a few other Peanuts characters atop each brownie and they were so cute! I say that in the past tense, as my family quickly snapped them up. Luckily I got a picture before they did. I will be making more of these to take to a Halloween party that we will be attending this weekend. They are so festive!
I am so excited to see this movie! I watched the Peanuts Movie trailer and found myself giggling just as I did when I was a little girl. Snoopy always cracks me up and he always makes me think of my 5th grade teacher (Ms. McCullough), who loved anything and everything Snoopy. I look forward to feeling like a kid again, but this time I will be in a movie theater watching my favorite characters.
There is even more to celebrate! I know, my dear readers, how much you love sweepstakes, and to coincide with The Peanuts Movie is The Peanuts Movie Sweepstakes! You could win a trip to Snoopy’s home in beautiful California, or a Peanuts Movie themed Xbox and video game! How fun is that? Hurry and enter though, as the sweepstakes ends October 31st!
And don’t forget to head to your local Safeway store to get your own Peanuts Movie trick or treat bag!
