Make Some Unique Halloween Treats

If you are planning a Halloween party, you’ll want some unique Halloween treats. You might have many of these ingredients, but if you don’t, kill two birds with one stone and have your vehicle serviced at SouthTowne Motors, and then head out to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients for these unique party treats.

Halloween Party Mix

  • 1 Egg white, large
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbs. Packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tbs. Chili powder
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 5 cups Unsalted popcorn, popped
  • 2 cups Mini pretzel twists
  • 2 cups Roasted peanuts, salted*

* If any of your guests have peanut allergies, substitute another type of nut or more pretzels.


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a whisk, mix the egg white, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, the chili powder and the salt in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss everything together, making sure all of the snack food is coated with the liquid mixture.

Spread the mixture on the baking sheet and bake it until it’s crispy, about 20 minutes. Stir the mixture once or twice during the baking time. Cool in the pan on a wire rack until the mixture is completely cooled.

Parmesan Bread Stick Brooms

  • 2 1-pound pieces of frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • 2 tbs. Milk
  • ¼ cup Grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Roll out each piece of dough into a 6-inch by 10-inch rectangle. Flour a chef’s knife and cut each piece into six 10-inch strips. Make 3-inch cuts lengthwise at one end of each of the strips. Keep the cuts about ¼ inch apart. These are the broom straws. Twist and pull the uncut part to form a broom handle. Transfer the broom sticks to the pan, keeping them a couple of inches apart. Spread out the cut ends. Brush the bread stick brooms with milk and sprinkle them with the Parmesan cheese. Bake until the sticks turn golden, about 15 to 18 minutes.

You’ll Need This New GMC SUV

The 2018 GMC Terrain has been revealed. The all-new Terrain is entering its 2nd generation and is ringing in the next phase of GMC’s design philosophy

Available in SLE, SLT and Denali models, the new GMC SUV’s bold exterior signals the evolution of the brand’s signature cues with stronger, sharper and more sculpted elements such as the grille and lighting features. Its shape was refined in the wind tunnel to help ensure the distinctive profile cuts through the air with optimal efficiency and quietness.

Standard features on the Terrain include a driver controllable Traction Select system, which has options for various driving conditions and scenarios. If you get an AWD model, you also get a FWD mode that disconnects the AWD system to optimize fuel efficiency, a useful feature for when you don’t need AWD engaged.

The interior is receiving numerous upgrades, including an expanded center console with pass-through storage underneath the cupholders, a new fold-flat front passenger seat and backseats for more storage flexibility. Inside the passenger cabin, the new Terrain’s interior makes a statement and serves as a fundamental component of the vehicle’s heightened emphasis on refinement and functionality. Elements such as authentic aluminum trim, soft-touch materials on the instrument panel and doors and standard active noise cancellation are premium features seamlessly integrated into the interior design for a luxurious customer experience.

Tailgate in Style

Vintage football over grass

Tailgating is a time-honored American pastime at this point. Load up your toughest and roomiest vehicle, usually a truck or SUV, with all the makings of a party, head out to the parking lot at the stadium ahead of a big game, and celebrate the sport and spectacle with family, friends, and fellow fans.

Sound like a good time? Of course it is. Need a tailgate vehicle of your own? Want to be the one who makes the party happen? Of course you do.

Do it in style with one of these great vehicles from SouthTowne Motors:

2016 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Trail Boss Edition

If you’re looking for that ultimate tailgating vehicle, the 2016 Chevy Colorado Z71 Trail Boss Edition is right up there with the best.

Featuring an extended cab on a long box 4-wheel drive, the Colorado Z71 Trail Boss has all the comforts and features to make your tailgate party great.

The audio system is of special note here. Featuring Apple CarPlay capability, an aux jack, Bose Premium 7-Speaker System, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio, the truck is ready to blast whatever tunes you want for whatever party you want to throw.

Of course the long truck bed is nice for toting all the gear you’ll need and for setting up a surface for serving your guests.

2016 GMC Yukon SLE

On the other hand, you could go with the GMC Yukon SLE, which can store just as much as a truck for tailgating, but that also offers more seating when it’s not game day.

With seating for up to 7 adults, the GMC is great for hauling your crew around. Even if you’re not the one hosting the tailgate party, you’ll still be the hero that can transport most of the attendees there!

2015 Buick Enclave Newnan, GA 5GAKRBKD1FJ124499

There is a saying that there is always room for improvement in everything you do. The same holds true for Buick. They produce high-quality, luxury vehicles at affordable prices, which makes them an outstanding company. But when something is so great, how do you improve it? We will tell you.

There is also a backup camera mounted on the liftgate with back up sensors. The rear seats fold down flat giving you extra storage space in the back when needed. Under the hood there is a 3.6L V6 engine that churns out 288 horsepower that is coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission. This mean the Enclave receives 24 MPG highway and 17 MPG city.

Inside the vehicle you have a beautiful Choccachino interior with French seem stitching throughout. The second row of seats are captain chairs and both have armrests with headrest and can recline for added comfort. There are also two sunroofs, one up front and the other in the rear.

How to Keep Your Car Cool

Most drivers don’t enjoy driving in intense temperatures. Getting into a hot sweltering car can feel like you are being roasted. Let’s stay cool this summer by being ready for whatever the summer heat throws at you. The crew over at SouthTowne Motors have a few tips and tricks up their sleeve to share with you.

Make shade your best friend as well as purchasing a window visor. By parking in shady areas, you will greatly reduce the amount of heat that builds up in your car. When it is 90 degrees outside, your car’s internal temperature can reach 109 within just minutes. It only gets hotter in just under ten minutes so imagine the inside of your car reaching 138 degrees. You can help avoid this issue by blocking direct sunlight and using your window visor. If you left your window visor at home or just can’t find a shaded spot, a great tip is to try parking your car’s front away from oncoming sun. This means your front seats along with steering wheel will stay protected from the sun.

These next two go hand in hand. Purchase a small solar powered fan along with slightly cracking your windows. This doesn’t mean leave your windows all the way down, just slightly cracked. Check to make sure your own arm can’t fit through the crack. Making a small crack is enough to promote better ventilation to cool your car off. Cracked windows along with a mini solar fan will keep your car cool even in the hottest of summer days.

Open your doors before you get in and vent the hot air out. Don’t just go jumping into a scorching hot car. Especially if your car has been sitting in extreme temperatures for a long period of time. Let the vehicle air out a moment to allow cool air to enter and hot air to exit. It’s also a good idea to invest in tinted windows to keep out the sun. Window tints will help reflect the sun’s UV rays and keep your car cooler. Just be mindful of state laws and regulations. Check your local DMV before tinting your cars windows. Stay cool this summer with these handy pieces of advice from your local Newnan car dealer.
