The food scene in Los Angeles right now is so good it’s scary. So there’s no shortage of places to get your grub on Halloween style this year, and it’s not all sweets. Take your ghouls and ghosts out for vegan hot dogs from Frankenstand and top it off with candy corn flavored ice cream at Salt and Straw. No matter what your frightfully picky family is craving, there’s something for everyone. Trick and treats guaranteed.

Trader Joe’s Haunted Gingerbread House Kit

Forget waiting for the holidays to make a gingerbread house. Replace those pine trees with headstones and get building the perfect Gingerbread Haunted House. You'll get everything you need in one package from frosting and cookies, to gum drops and licorice—all black and orange of course. These sell out fast, so get them asap at various locations through out Los Angeles. Check for your nearest location on the website.
