Used Tampons

Now, this recipe is disgusting Halloween food at its most basic. It only has two ingredients (if you don’t include the string), comes together in about 5 minutes, and has maximum “gross out” potential. Really.Place this nasty-looking (but yummy tasting) gross Halloween food on a platter and decorate with tampon wrappers if desired. Then watch your guests –especially sqeamish male guests– get totally grossed out. Recipe make 5 large tampons.

Used Tampons

20 large marshmallows
1 can sour cherries in juice (not cherry pie filling!)
5 8-9″ lenghts of food-safe string


1. String four marshmallows on each of your five strings. I find the easiest way to do this is wrap the string around a wooden skewer, skewer the marshmallows, and pull the skewer out. You can also tie one end of the string around a toothpick.

2. Line the marshmallows up on one end of the string. Knot the bottom of the string.

3. Place marshmallow “tampons” on a serving tray.

5. Pour an undrained can of dark, sour cherries (it’s best if you cut up the cherries a bit) over. Or use cranberry juice and dried cranberries.

6. Enjoy!
