Our Readers' Best Food Halloween Costumes (PHOTOS)

In the spirit of Halloween season, we here at HuffPost Taste have been exploring some of the best (and worst) food costumes out there. And when it comes to real-life examples of of food costume creativity, we knew there would be nobody better to ask than our readers.

Of course, we were right -- we asked, and you answered with submissions of wild, adorable and insanely creative food and drink costumes. Our favorite 12 are below -- if you're in need of last-minute inspiration, look no further than the kitchen.
