Halloween with Hormel® #spon

As the leaves turn darker and the air gets crisper, October is the perfect time to celebrate the fall season. Whether you’re making “spooky snacks” for Halloween, hosting friends and family to watch your favorite sports teams or trying the newest seasonal food trend, Hormel Foods has all the meal tips, recipe ideas and hosting tricks to keep your month fun, entertaining and tasty!
“H” is for Halloween: With fall officially in full swing, Hormel Foods is introducing the "ABC's of Fall" on the Hormel Foods Recipes Pinterest page! Encourage your readers to check out new seasonal posts, and share with us their favorite fall recipes, “spooky” snack ideas, and ways they use classic fall flavors using the hashtag #ABCsofFall and #HormelFamily.

· “M” is for Mummies: Hanging out in cemeteries isn’t the only place for these scary creatures – turns out they like pizza too! That is, in these Mini Mummy Pizzas. To make your own, top half an English muffin with pizza sauce, add Hormel® Pepperoni Minis, sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese and add two sliced black olives for eyes. Viola!

· “S” is for Spooky: Make a “Spooky Chili” this Halloween for a fun and filling time! Use Halloween-shaped cookie cutters to cut shapes out of cheese slices and place the cheese shapes over a bowl of hot Hormel® Chili with Beans. Pair it with this spooky Halloween dip featured on the NATURAL CHOICE®Pinterest page, which uses a variety of Hormel Foods products!

· “W” is for Weekends: Halloween falls on a Saturday this year, so use the whole weekend as an excuse to indulge in some of your favorite fall treats! Get the family together to make these fun and delicious Caramel Peanut Butter Apples using SKIPPY® SUPER CHUNK® Peanut Butter – you can even use the extra caramel as your personal fruit dip for later!
New Kids on the Block: At Hormel Foods, we’re always looking for new ways to keep meals satisfying, recipes tasty and snacking easy with delicious and fun food products. Check out our newest members to the Hormel Foods family, which are coming soon to stores near you!

· Go Bite-Sized: We’ve brought the big taste of real SKIPPY® Peanut Butter down to bite size! New portable, poppable SKIPPY® P.B. Bites are packed with double the peanut buttery yum, featuring a crunchy center with a soft peanut butter coating. The new P.B. Bites are available in pretzel and double peanut butter varieties, and contain 5 grams of protein per serving.

· A New Kind of SPAM®: The SPAM® Brand you know and love is now available in bite-sized pieces as new SPAM® Snacks! SPAM® Snacks are available in three varieties – Classic, Bacon and Teriyaki – and are packaged in a convenient, ready-to-go single-serve pouch with up to 10 grams of protein per serving. You can find them in stores this month in select regions, including Hawaii, the West Coast and the Southeast.

Food Trends from the Test Kitchen: Vegetable-focused dishes are continuing to gain popularity this season, featuring favorites like butternut squash, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. If you’re a squash fan, start out your meal with this Harvest Butternut and Tomato Bisque using CHI-CHI'S® Thick & Chunky Salsa. For the main course, treat your guests to a hearty meat option with this Easy Pork Chops and Squash recipe using HORMEL® ALWAYS TENDER® Thin Center Cut Pork Chops.

Hockey Season Kick-Off: Our beloved hockey teams are back in action as they kick off their regular season games in October. Host your team’s first home game with a hockey tailgate featuring a variety of fan-friendly appetizers like HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Trays and HORMEL® SNACKERS®. If you really want to kick it up a notch, try creating your very own “potato bar” using baked potatoes and set out a variety of toppings like Hormel® Real Bacon Pieces, cheese, sour cream, Hormel® chili, CHI-CHI'S® salsa, CHI-CHI'S® jalapenos, and LLOYD’S® shredded meat.

National Taco Day: Whether you like them hard or soft, using corn or flour tortillas or with pork, beef, chicken, fish or veggies – there’s no doubt that Americans love tacos! As a matter of fact, just in 2012 alone, people in the U.S. consumed 4.5 billion tacos! So this year, make sure to celebrate on Oct. 4 with some homemade tacos of your own – try this Slow Cooker Carnitas Tacos recipe using HERDEZ® Salsa Chipotle and HERDEZ® corn tortillas.

More in October: Don’t forget, October is also National Pizza Month and Cookie Month! For the history buffs, Columbus Day is coming up, which is held on Oct. 12 every year to coincide with the anniversary of Columbus's arrival to America.
