Well, it seems that it is that time of year again. Spooky things are in the world and candy abounds. Go to any grocery store and there will be massive bags of supposedly fun-sized candy (although everyone knows that truly fun-sized candy is a full-sized piece) for handing out to the trick-or treaters who may or may not be coming this year. With sweets piling up in homes all over, the question then becomes, what is the best way to consume all of that sticky goodness? To keep that Halloween feeling going leading up to and well after the holiday, here is a look at some perfect pairings of horror novels and candy pieces.

What's better than a cinnamon roll? While we could go on and on about how much we love this sticky sweet dessert, we’d much rather talk about the other cinnamon rolls in our lives – the ones that are too good for this world, too pure. Yes, we’re talking about fictional characters. The very sweetest ones.

There are many different types of punches in existence. The jab, the straight, the cross and the uppercut all of these are parts of the repertoires of the best pugilists in the world. Yet even all of those different punches don’t even scratch the surface of all of the punches in the world. To celebrate National Punch Day, we at Quirk decided to take a look at some of the greatest popular culture punches.
