We are BIG Halloween fans here at Bloomer Telephone Company, and always have been. We did a quick poll of our some of our employees’ favorite costumes and candy and got some crazy answers.
Travis rocked a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costume. Michelangelo, to be specific. (Free candy for life for anyone who can name Michelangelo’s three brothers.) Favorite candy? Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, always. And he admits that as a kid, he always knew which houses were handing out the king-size candy bars.
Robyn’s mom made the executive decision that she would be a witch every year. Consistency is key! And while Robyn is about as sweet as can be, her favorite candy is Sour Patch Kids.
While Melissa’s absolute favorite candy is Almond Joy, her all-time favorite costume was a Hershey’s Kiss. It was mom-made and now we’re wondering…how do you make a Hershey’s Kiss costume? Papier Mache? A whole lot of tin foil?
In keeping with the candy costume theme, Shelly is a BIG fan of M&M’s. Doesn’t matter what kind, she loves ‘em! And just to prove it, her hall-of-history costume is…a bag of Peanut M&M’s.
Eric, our newest team member, recalls going as a lion when he was only three years old. His parents caught a picture of him mid roar (yawn) and that has gone down in family lore. And give him a good ol’ Reese’s PB Cup any day.
And finally, Kent, our fearless leader, proudly boasts of his Larry, Darrell and Darrell costume. (He was one of the Darrells). And, big surprise, he’s a Reese’s lover and really likes homemade popcorn balls.
Clearly, our staff has an affinity for chocolate… What’s your all-time favorite Halloween costume? Post a picture on Facebook and tag us in it to let us know!
We wish everyone a spook-tacular, wickedly fun and safe Halloween!
