McCormick and IGA...Making Halloween a Monster Mash of Color and Flavor  

 October 19, 2012 


Our passion for flavor...our uniquely collaborative culture...our high quality and healthful spices and flavor...these are the things that allow us to make a difference in the way people create and experience food. Making food more distinctive and enjoyable is what inspires us, and IGA retailers can always count on McCormick for providing products and ideas for every day cooking as well as special occasions.

Take the upcoming Halloween holiday, for example, where McCormick is inspiring fun Halloween Treats. Jack-o-Lantern Orange, Banshee Black, Frankenstein Green: McCormick food colors and extracts are the perfect combination for Halloween—especially when used in recipes developed by the McCormick Kitchens specifically for the season.

McCormick.com is showcasing five Halloween recipes this Halloween season, from Creepy Crawly Cake Truffles that transform orange-flavored cake balls in to edible monsters; to Black Velvet Whoopie Pies featuring Jack-O-Lantern Orange, Frankenstein Green and Electric Purple fillings; to our tantalizing Orange Hocus Pocus Fizz mocktail rimmed with black sugar.
