Photos: Sugarlicious stocks scary Halloween treats
Nothing says "Halloween is here!" like skeletal Hello Kitty tins filled with sour-orange, bone-shaped candies. Sure, the candies themselves are nothing more than boring Sweet Tarts, but this time of year, it's all about the presentation. Sugarlicious, a sweet shop in Cherry Creek, not only has great Halloween atmosphere, but a stock of interesting and off-the-wall spooky treats for gourmet trick-or-treating.

OMFG! These little ghost coconut haystacks with tiny chocolate candy eyes are so effin adorable they should not be given out to random, candy-grubbing children, but instead reserved as presents for bosses, ex-spouses, security guards and parole officers -- or any other adult you really need to suck up to.
First there was Hello Kitty. Then there was Hello Kitty Jelly Bellies. Now there is Hello Kitty Halloween Jelly Bellies, in four flavors corresponding to Halloween colors: island punch purple, kiwi green, orange sherbet orange and wild blackberry black. The last one is a smart move, because if the black ones were licorice-flavored, no one would buy them.
Mmmmmm.....fried crickets. Yep, they're real crickets, yep, they come in three tantalizing flavors: bacon & cheese, salt & vinegar and sour cream & onion, and yep, they include the spiky back legs.
