Halloween is here and there’s so much we’re looking forward to at Chiquita!

It won’t be long till the night we’ve been waiting for all year, the time for horror, trick or treat, and putting on those scary Halloween costumes! Halloween is an old tradition that is also all about fun, making precious moments to cherish forever with family and friends, and (of course) cooking up some treats.

One of the best parts of Halloween is the food we get to eat at this time of year. Whether you are a child or an adult, you’re bound to love the traditional delicious pumpkin pie and candy on offer. Chiquita bananas can be a really enjoyable part of Halloween cooking, because they make the perfect ingredient for a Halloween cake and many other delicious Halloween treats. Chiquita bananas provide a natural sweetness with their unique and delicious flavor that also enhances the other ingredients. Plus they make cakes and muffins beautifully moist!

Chiquita bananas can also make some ghoulish surprises, with their lovely yellow skin peeled back to look like a Halloween ghost! All they need is some well-placed spiderwebs and spooky lighting, and you have the perfect marriage with the orange color of the Jack o’ Lantern!

This year, Chiquita has developed three bananas recipes specially for this event that will make your Halloween party perfect:
