Spooky Pecan Treats: Pass it on Neighbor to Neighbor
Funny thing about Halloween is that we think it’s all about trick or treating with kids. Why not start a new trend at Alamo Pecan & Coffee? Why not give pecans or coffee for every holiday, every occasion, and every festivity and act of giving? You see, rather than waiting on Trick or Treaters, let’s start a neighbor-to-neighbor treat campaign a week before the Spooky Halloween holiday.
Let Alamo Pecan & Coffee join in your act of generosity by sharing several delicious pecan treats to your most adventurous neighbors. For example: Let’s say you know this neighbor who loves coffee. Well there you go! Drop by Alamo Pecan & Coffee and stock up on a few of your neighbors’ favorite products available, and let the sharing and caring begin!
It doesn’t have to include anything fancy, but a simple handwritten note with the treat that says “Dear Neighbor I’m treating you this Halloween! All you have to do is keep it going forward.” Continue to explain the rules in the note, saying “You are a one of my favorite Spooks and now it’s up to you to send treats to one of your favorites!”. The repeated act will be contagious!
And we happen to have a few treat suggestions! After all, we here at Alamo Pecan & Coffee understand that there are only so many suckers and bags of candy a person needs. So, with that said, let me give you some tasty, sure-to-please suggestions on how Alamo Pecan & Coffee can bring the yummy Spook to your “Neighborhood Passing on the Treats Adventure”.
The originality of the gift will make it more appealing and unique, so let your mind and thoughts be filled with ghostly, googly, monsterly delicious treats available at Alamo Pecan and Coffee!
