I posted these on another thread, but thought they might make some good idea fodder for a party. 1940s retro/WWII stuff is pretty popular now, and these provide some insight into Halloween (Hallowe'en) back then. The ads are from grocers selling food for special Halloween dinners and parties... and one beer ad! Looks like molasses-based foods, nuts, cider, Halloween ice cream, and peanut brittles were favorites of the day. Looks like a good road map for a 1940s/WWII-themed Halloween party. :)

Oh, and I found out that Buttercream Corn is what we now know as candy corn. :)
