DIY Halloween Party – The Ultimate Halloween Post #TruMoo

trumoo DIY Halloween Party

You can’t have a DIY Halloween party without delicious food and drinks, spooky decorations, and fun costumes, right?! That’s why I’ve put together this virtual DIY Halloween Party for you – everything you need to create a Halloween party on a budget, all in one spot! This is a sponsored post on behalf of TruMoo, so be sure to check them out before you leave! You can follow TruMoo on Twitter, too.

I love that TruMoo chocolate and vanilla milk have 35% less sugar than other chocolate milk brands, plus no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial growth hormones! At only 140 calories for a cup, I can even have some – it’s my favorite after workout drink. I prefer the 1% low fat chocolate milk, but my girls went absolutely batty over the orange vanilla milk! :)

Now through October 31st, you can find a unique code located on the cap sticker of specially marked Limited Edition TruMoo Halloween Vanilla (tinted orange) and Chocolate milks. These codes can be entered online at for a chance to win a Haunted Hollywood Vacation trip! Also, when you enter the code, you will have the option to receive $2 off any Goosebumps DVD.
