“When witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers, ’tis near Halloween.”

While Halloween conjures up images of ghosts, scary jack-o-lanterns and haunted houses, it’s also about the treats. You’ll find everything you need to host a “spooktacular” Halloween party at your local Strack & Van Til.

Super submarine sandwiches are the ideal meal for a Halloween haunt. And they’re so tasty, your guests will be “goblin” them up. Find all the fixings for these sandwiches in the Strack & Van Til Deli, including meats, cheeses and submarine oil dressing. Complement your sandwiches with pasta and potato salad options, “witch” will complete your meal deliciously.

Halloween is filled with thrills and chills, so keep warm with Strack & Van Til Deli hot foods including Our Famous Fried chicken or chicken wings, tenders and boneless wings in a variety of flavors. Or, choose BBQ rib tips, pan-style deli pizza and Our Own Sliders, including BBQ chicken or pork, Philly cheesesteak, ham, turkey and more.

“If you’re looking for a chili fix, stop by the deli for a 4-pound bucket of chili for only $14.99 each,” said Strack & Van Til Deli Director Kristin Snow. “This boil-in-a-bag chili takes only minutes to heat and serve. Top your chili with your favorite cheese or try our Jalapeno Chihuahua cheese and sour cream for a real treat.”

Simply snacking? Indulge in Our Own tortilla chips with an array of guacamole, hummus, salsas and everyone’s favorite spinach dip, perfect when paired with King’s Hawaiian dipping bread. Want to go gourmet and impress your guests and goblins? Build your own charcuterie board with Italian meats, cheeses, sausages, salamis, gourmet cheese spreads, olives and fancy crackers. For an added treat, pair with chocolates.

And speaking of sweets, check out the Strack & Van Til Bakery, where there are no tricks — only treats. There’s Halloween themed large Message Cookies that can be personalized for your favorite phantom and festive trays of assorted cookies. Enjoy a wide variety of delectable Halloween brownies, cupcakes and cakes all made in-store.

“All of our Halloween bakery items are decorated in-store,” said Bakery Director Tim Calderone.

Of course, Strack & Van Til grocery shelves are stocked with all the candy and other treats you’ll need when the little ghosts and goblins come calling at your door.
