So today I was in the Halloween mood. I was trying to figure out what candy I would be handing out to the trick or treaters this year. Last year I had Twix and Snickers. I let the visitors pick which candy they wanted. I thought to myself, why don’t I come up with a list of the worst things to give out (from my experience in no particular order!). Tell me what you think. Should I added something else or is there something that should not be on my list? J
1. Not giving out candy
Halloween is all about giving candy to the kids. Nothing is worse than people that hide in their dark houses from trick or treaters.
2. Candy Buttons
A typical bites consists of 75% candy, 25% paper.
It may seem exciting to get money, but you end up getting a few pennies or a nickel. You cannot buy much with that nowadays.
4. Pop Corn
Now I am not talking about the popcorn ball (that is okay). I am talking about the pop corn you pop in the microwave. Most people always have that in the cupboards already, so it is not a treat.
5. Kids Meal Toys
Yes, people have actually given those out before. When I went trick or treating once (awhile ago), that is what I got. Creative? Yes. Did I want that? No.
6. The wrong season of candy
I am talking about candy canes from Christmas, or jelly beans from Easter. How long have you had that in your pantry?
7. Almond Joys
Now I know from experience when I was a kid. My friends and I hated the almond joys. Coconut is a taste not all kids enjoy.
