You’re going to need to schedule your dental appointment now. Bring your sweet tooth to munch on an assortment of spooky snacks at Eatzi’s. Ginger dead men, chocolate-covered Oreos, chocolate skulls, chocolate flying witches and chocolate jack-o’-lanterns are a few of the sweet items available for a Halloween pick-me-up. For the pumpkin spice lovers out there, munch on pumpkin bread and popcorn with a pumpkin spiced espresso in one hand to conjure the spirits of fall. We’ve also got a whole list of treats to order from local bakeries and chocolate shops right this way.
