Oh, Fudge!

Written for Susanna Leonard Hill’s 7th Annual Halloweensie Contest for children’s writers.
Must be a story 100 words or less, using the words monster, candy corn, and shadow within the tale.
Enjoy a bit of fudge for Halloween!


Sam dressed up as Tom Thumb

he was hoping to get a pack of gum

to glue his thumb into his mouth

while trick or treating house to house.


But instead he got candy corn

baby teeth when a monsterโ€™s born.

Yellow, white, orange, brown

they pull them out and throw them down.


In the shadows under trees

Candy corn sprouts monster tea

a mossy, slimy, slippery sludge

monsters drink with people fudge.


So when Sam went searching for candy grail

he ended up as candy kale

an intricate part of people fudge

a Halloween treat that monsters love.

  1. So cute! Itโ€™s funny โ€“ my son lost his โ€˜fang teethโ€™ just before Halloween, and I was tempted to tell him to put candy corn in the holes. I didnโ€™t though โ€“ our dentist would probably scold me.

    1. Poor fellow can’t eat his candy…guess you’ll just have to eat it for him and let him know how it tastes ๐Ÿ™‚
      I wish you would have. A once in a lifetime opportunity to be such a cool vampire on Halloween with awesome fangs…and edible too.

      Thanks for the support ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Love the idea of candy corn being monster baby teeth – so creative! – and eww! people fudge! ๐Ÿ™‚ Clever fun story, Willow (sorry if that’s not actually your name – can’t find it anywhere!) Thanks so much for joining in the Halloweensie fun!
