Halloween has become a fun time of year for us now that we are parents. While our two year old still doesn’t really understand what is going on, I’m having a fun time introducing him to pumpkins (although he likes to carry his pumpkin around the house which I’m not a fan of ), hayrides and Halloween crafts. When I was given the opportunity to purchase Fanta and make a Halloween dish with it, I jumped at it. I have been craving punch and I wanted to make a Halloween Punch out of Fanta!

I headed to Walmart to pick up Fanta and a pack of Dasani 12 oz bottles. I found Fanta on the Beverages aisle.
While I was at Walmart, there was also an in-store demo showing how to make Halloween treats out of Fanta, Wheat Thins, Oreos and more! It was a popular demo! The table was wiped clean of samples!
Dasani water bottles are made from plant resin and is a special shape that won’t fall over in the fridge! I wanted to get Dasani bottles to hand out to thirsty trick or treaters that come to our door. Follow Dasani on Twitter!
I headed home armed with the three main ingredients for my punch. Fanta, pineapple juice and orange sherbet. I can not even begin to tell you how good this punch was! And how ridiculously simple it was.
Halloween Punch Recipe
1 2 Liter Bottle Fanta Orange Soda
46 oz Pineapple Juice
3/4 container of Orange Sherbet
1) Approximately 10 minutes before making, take the sherbet out of the freezer to begin to thaw.
2) In a large punch bowl, add Fanta, Pineapple Juice and sherbert. Stir a few times to mix all of the flavors.
If you decide to make a more ghoulish version of the punch, you can make bloody eyeballs like I did using four ingredients. Marshmallows, grapes (halved), chocolate chips and red icing. I’m not going to lie – these were not the easiest to make because the grapes kept popping out of their sockets (the marshmallows). But when I pushed the grapes in deep enough, they did stay put. And the marshmallows floated in the punch making a perfect floating eyeball.
