Your Halloween checklist

Yonge and Eglinton is not only a great place for your little goblins and ghosts to skulk and shamble around as they trick-or-treat this year, but it’s full of great options to stock up for the frightening fun. So whether you’re chaperoning a couple of Draculas or staying home to give out goodies, here are a couple of local businesses that can help you out.

It’s all about the candy
That’s right, we said it. This is the one time of year we can advocate indulging your sweet tooth (in moderation, of course). But when it comes to tasty treats, you have a couple of options. Metro at 2300 Yonge Street, just north of Eglinton, has tons of Halloween loot, and you can pick up bags big enough to ensure that your house is the most popular on the block. But for true candy connoisseurs, Sugar Mountain at 2291 Yonge Street is the place. Walls upon walls of confectionary delight await you at this mecca of munchies. And we’re pretty sure this is the first time they’ve been endorsed by a dentist!

Spooky styles
Picking a costume can be hard. Do you go funny or frightening? Hilarious or horrifying? Whatever you choose, you can find it among the racks at Little Party Shoppe at 2566 Yonge Street. With costumes and decorations to suit any Halloween ensemble, your family will be turning heads and raising hairs wherever your trick or treating takes you. Just don’t get one of those spooky dentist costumes — talk about bad taste.

Some support for Mom and Dad
Hiking to the best loot locations in the neighbourhood all night can take its toll. We know, we’ve been there too. So proper footwear is a must. Luckily Sporting Life at 2454 Yonge Street can set you up with the sneakers and insoles you need to keep up with a few little werewolves on a sugar rush. They may not have costumes, but sometimes being scary takes a back seat to preventing foot and back pain. And while you’re following at a safe-but-embarrassment-free distance, you’ll need a big cup of something steaming to see you through the night. Good thing there’s Aroma Espresso Bar at 2300 Yonge Street, De Mello Palheta Coffee Roasters at 2489 Yonge Street, Second Cup at 40 Eglinton Avenue East and Starbucks right across at 39 Eglinton Avenue East. Phew. A quick stop at each should get you through the night, right?

And of course, don’t forget to brush!

After the zombies have returned to their graves and the witches have flown off on their broomsticks, a bit of tooth care may be in order. Be sure to brush thoroughly after your Halloween Butterfinger binge, and if you’re worried about what three pounds of chocolate in two days did to your little trick-or-treater’s teeth, it might be the perfect time to schedule an appointment!

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
