JetBlue Giving Away Full-Size Candy Bars on Halloween


A sprawling building near the shoreline of Table Bay, the Castle of Good Hope dates back to 1666, making it the oldest colonial building in South Africa. Originally built by the Dutch East India Company as a replenishment station for ships, the site also served as a military fortress and prison during the Second Boer War from 1899-1902. Today, you can tour the fort's many rooms and buildings (including the gruesome torture chamber) but you might want to prepare yourself for a ghost sighting. Back in the 1700s, Governor Pieter van Noodt condemned several men to be hanged to death; one of the men cursed the governor from the gallows, and van Noodt died of a heart attack later that day. According to the Castle of Good Hope's official website, his ghost has been haunting the battlements ever since.

Stopping at the houses that offer full-size candy bars on Halloween was always the goal of trick or treaters, and JetBlue is filling that role for travelers.

According to the airline’s official blog, JetBlue will transform into JetBoo and offer Trick-or-treaters on the ground in Boston, New York City and the Fort Lauderdale area the chance to grab a full-size candy bar on October 31 from 3-8 p.m. ET.

Travelers can take advantage of the opportunity by visiting JetBoo Houses at Boston Common in Massachusetts; Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn, New York; and Lake Wyman Park in Boca Raton, Florida.
