Wickedly freaky fingers
This Hallows Eve, bake a batch or two of funny, freaky treats with the Fingers Non-Stick Cookie Pan from Wilton. Then ready several tinted icings and sparkly sugars so children (and adults) can decorate them. A basic sugar cookie dough recipe comes with the metal pan that gets a vegetable spray before dough is pressed into the "finger" cavities. Its suggested retail price: $8.99.

There's a phyllo wrap for that
Get a party assist this holiday season with a quartet of phyllo-wrapped appetizers from Saffron Road Foods: Turkish Figs & Goat Cheese; Crispy Samosas with Vegetables; Dates, Tamarind & Walnuts; and Crispy Samosas with Saag Paneer. A bake in the oven turns the halal-certified wraps flaky and golden. The fig-goat cheese and vegetable samosas earned raves from tasters. The suggested retail price for each 12-piece package is $8.99. A store locater is at saffronroadfood.com.
Spoonfuls of goodness
Look beyond the iconic red-and-white can for a couple of new kids from Campbell's Soup. Whimsically labeled microwaveable pouches hold six globally spiced soups in the Go line, from Spicy Chorizo and Pulled Chicken With Black Beans to Creamy Red Pepper With Smoked Gouda. Gourmet Bisques boast four flavors, with Sweet Potato Tomatillo a taste-tester favorite for its delicate tomatillo-lemon tang brightening the mellow potato. Go's hearty Moroccan Style Chicken With Chickpeas soup delivered a nice spicy kick. Suggested retail prices: A 14-ounce Go soup is $2.99; an 18.3-ounce Gourmet Bisques is $3.49.
