If you’re looking for an appropriate treat for Halloween, or perhaps you’re a rotting corpse and you’re getting sick of eating brains, then you have to try this delicious white chocolate Zombie bar from Sugar Plum Chocolates. This fiendish treat was lucky enough to be the star of a Food Network special, and is delicious to boot!

Sugar Plum Chocolates, for those who don’t know, is a super quaint sweet shop hidden in Forty Fort, PA. I hadn’t even heard of it until I met the owner, Neil Edley, at a POWER meeting at a local bar. I’m so happy that Sugar Plum is a NEPA business! There are lots of local businesses we can be loud and proud of in Northeast Pennsylvania, and Sugar Plum is just one more.

Fun Facts about Thanksgivukkah:
Thanksgivukkah is a pop-culture portmanteau neologism given to the convergence of the American holiday of Thanksgiving and the first day of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah on Thursday, November 28, 2013.

It is a result of a rare kink between the lunisolar Hebrew calendar (whose dates reflect both the moon phase and the time of the solar year) and the Gregorian calendar. Because the calendars are not calculated the same way, Chanukah appears at a different time each year on the Gregorian calendar.

The last time it happened was 125 years ago, in 1888. The next time will be 79,043 years from 2013, by one calculation.

The Holiday even has its own Facebook page!
