Halloween offers so many opportunities to play with your food and get a little silly! From crescent mummy dogs to orange “brain” snacks, there’s no shortage of fun ways to make your food Halloween-party ready. The problem? My son won’t touch most of that stuff. He’s super picky and really leery of anything that doesn’t look exactly like it’s supposed to. Serving him food that looks like brains would cause a revolt! It makes me a little sad, because I’m totally nuts about Halloween! Jake’s favorite drink in the world, TruMoo, has me covered, though. They’ve “spookified” their classic chocolate milk with a fun Halloween label! I set up a spooky scene with inexpensive Halloween decorations to surprise Jake when he gets home from school later. Check it out!
It took just a few minutes to put together, but it’s such a fun way to get your child’s afterschool snack in the spirit of Halloween. Although, honestly, I didn’t want to leave the TruMoo out all day, so I drank both cups myself! I’ll refill them before he gets home. Gee, I hope he doesn’t notice that I snuck some of his favorite drink!
TruMoo Limited Edition Orange Scream Fun
TruMoo also brought back their Limited Edition Orange Scream flavor. It’s selling like proverbial hotcakes in my town, I am waiting for it to come back in stock in my local stores. I’m planning to make an Orange Scream Pumpkin Chai Latte. Here is the recipe I’ll be using:
- 2 tablespoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1 tablespoon real pumpkin
- 1 cup TruMoo Orange Scream
- 1 chai tea bag of your choice
Directions: Add the real pumpkin puree and the milk to a microwave-safe mug. Heat for about 40 seconds, then stir really well. Heat another 30 seconds, stir again, and add the pumpkin pie spice. Heat for a final minute, add your tea bag and let steep for a few minutes (depending on how strong you like it).
The multiple heating and stirring steps really helps get everything blended better. It’s my little secret for whenever you’re adding anything solid or semi-solid to a latte, be it pumpkin puree, chocolate chips and so on. I’m not the best cook in the world, but I rock hot beverages, if I do say so myself!
I’m also going to make these Orange Scream Cupcakes with TruMoo that we made last year, because they were just so tasty!

I love TruMoo! I just picked some up at the store today!
Yum :D I wish we have that in our local stores.
Thanks for the recipe.
We love this milk and look forward to the Halloween packaging each year! I know my kids would love a glass right now with a cupcake or two.
Tru Moo looks like a great way to make Halloween more fun. Your cupcakes and milk together must taste heavenly.
I love that companies add the extra little bit of decoration for the season! It really adds to the enjoyment of it!
Such a wonderful fun idea this coming halloween. I love your ideas.
I love to bake cupcakes and top them with crumbled Oreo cookies and gummy worms. Eyeball cupcakes are fun to make to. TruMoo is so delicious. I will have to try this recipe.
We love Trumoo in our family. I love to make some chocolate shakes with it. Those cupcakes look really good. I may have to try those out for Halloween!
I’ve got to get some of this the next time I’m out grocery shopping. It would be a nice treat for my kids. And I’ve got to try your yummy drink recipe.
I wish my kiddo liked milk, this would be a fun drink to try with him. I might have to make it with the little girl I watch she loves milk!
We love Tru Moo Chocolate milk!!! Those cupcakes look delicious, what a perfect Halloween treat.
So delicious! I wish we had TruMoo here in Canada, I know my kiddos would love and enjoy it! What a treat!
Love the chocolate TruMoo and buy it once in awhile for the kids. (It disappears fast.) But I can never find the orange TruMoo. I just don’t think they sell it here during Halloween for some reason even though it’s advertised in the coupon section. Such a bummer because I’d love to try your drink recipe!
That looks delicious and yummy! I love using TruMoo for making a delicious hot chocolate. I will have to try your addition of pumpkin spice.
Spooky fun with food is great. The latte sounds delicious. It sounds like the perfect fall drink.
The latte sounds great but those Orange Scream Cupcakes!! Yes!! Now I want some TruMoo!
Chocolate milk is one of our favorites! These are awesome ideas.
Another chocolate milk fan here, except I usually add Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup to my almond milk!
So many fun Halloween post with crazy creepy ideas!!
Yum, this looks delicious!
Tru Moo is awesome and it looks really yummy too. I love a good chocolate drink!
Nice and quick chocolaty drink… I love chocolate milk anytime
We all love chocolate milk. This is our everyday breakfast :) I like the idea of adding some other ingredients ans make it nice
I love chocolate milk – Halloween or not! :)
I am all for spooky fun. There are so many great ideas you can do with TruMoo
Trumoo is truly a chocolatey fun time for this season– just being able to get something more than candy into the kids is always a feat!
My son loves chocolate milk, so we’ll have to try this . That Orange chai tea latte sounds amazing .
