Not exactly health food, but in honor of the rare Blue Moon Halloween Miami area Denny’s will be serving a special version of its famous “Moons Over My Hammy” breakfast sandwich.
The chain restaurant will be serving a different version of the sandwich because of the Blue Moon’s cross over with the Halloween holiday that hasn’t happened since 1944. The sandwich was originally inspired by the the 1930’s jazz hit “Moon Over Miami” and has been one of the franchise’s best sellers since it came out in the 1990’s.
The sandwich will be pretty familiar: ham, scrambled eggs, Swiss and American cheese etc. However, the sourdough bread will be dyed bull. Hence the “Blue Moons Over My Hammy” sandwich.
The sandwich is available for one day only in 20 locations in the Miami-Dade area on 31 October 2020.
The Victor crew set out to find out all the cautions of Halloween on our health. This is what we found:
- Dangerous chemicals in costumes and Trick or Treat bags. HealthyStuff.org mentions that they tested 44 costumes, 40 accessories and 22 decorations and party favores. They found heavy metals and other additives in them that could lead to asthma, reproductive problems, developmental and learning disabilities, cancer, and hormone problems.
- Face paints containing lead.
- Sugar overload. This can lead to the inability to break down sugar and lead to hyperglycemia also known as diabetes.
- Pedestrian traffic.
- Drunk driving.
- Candy or other treats laced with marijuana or other drugs or toxic chemicals.
- Flammable costumes. Make sure the costumes you choose are not flammable – better yet make them yourself.
What do families who have children with food allergies do for them? If there are milk allergies, chocolate is out. Then there are nuts, eggs, soy, and wheat allergies. The Victor crew found an alternative.
This year, you can take part in the Teal Pumpkin Project to help “treat” children with allergies. The Food Allery Research & Education organization is encouraging people to put a teal-painted pumpkin outside their door if they offer non-food treats. This can include stickers, crayons, glow sticks, balls, for example (think dollar stores).
There is a flyer available for you to download and print and put on your door.
Treats don’t have to be food! Spread the word!
