    Halloween...what is your favorite treat to hand out?

    Tomorrow is Halloween...we will have a small group of "Trick or Treaters" in our neighborhood. NL has a stash of Butterfingers and Hershey's mini bars to give to our little tricksters....

    What is your treat of choice to have on hand...just in case you have a few left over?

    I don't get many trick or treaters most years...last year I had zero, the previous year about 15, so I give out full sized candy bars. Usually Heath Bars, but this year I am giving out Dove candy bars.

      We don't get many trick or treaters either. The front gate is closed and we are 'not at home'.
      Whoever inflicted this Halloween hoha on us down this way needs to be drawn and quartered
      Tonight there are hordes of beggers roaming the streets, knocking on doors looking for a free treat.
      Bah humbug!

        I enjoy the little kids, but not the teenagers. When I was a kid, my parents did not let me trick-or-treat after age 13. After that, my job was to walk my little sister and her friends around, and stand on the sidewalk while they went up to the doors.

        Turning off your lights and not answering the door is a good way to get your house and yard toilet papered in my neighborhood!!!

          A better class of neighbourhood would use new toilet paper, I hope.

              KitKat is my new favorite, so I plucked them out of our bowls of candy. Hubby likes Payday. We had 31 kids, of all ages, including a small group of teens that I had to ask "Who are you?" - we're "Greasers!" Duh....I should have guessed it from the black leather jackets - they were having lots of fun. By that time we were giving out handfuls of mini candy bars to the kids, to avoid leftovers. One neighbor had their tiny kid, just able to walk, dressed up like a baby bird, wings and all sticking out and every time the kid toddled across their lawn he fell down - about 5 attempts - plopped, got up again. So funny, but what an introduction to Halloween for that kid!
              Hubby did our decorations this year and I carved 2 pumpkins. We have a remote device with a small speaker hidden outside that lets us play scary sounds. It was a fun Halloween, especially sipping a drink for a couple of hours. We probably managed to scare some of the kids - got some reactions when they saw two wheelers passing out candy.

                I love Halloween. Our 3rd huge bowl of candy was the strategic reserve for the teens that show up late with little or no costume to speak of. We had one family of a husband and wife with kids. Hubby and wife stayed up on the road and kids came down and got candy, about 5 mini candy bars each. When one kid returned to mom up on the road she checked his bag contents using a flashlight. I don't know if she was assessing our generosity or checking for poison.

                  Halloween is always a fun time and becoming a bigger retail holiday every year. Money Magazine reported that the average person planned on spending about $86.00 on candy, decorations and costumes in 2017. We didn't spend that much, just a couple bags of candy. Unfortunately we only had 3 pre teen penguins who showed up at the door together. Most of the parents in the area opt for organized Halloween parties. So now, if I'm really good, maybe I can convince NL to make Butterfinger ice cream pie with our leftover Butterfingers.

                    I got only 15 trick-or-treaters, and most were teens or young adults. Very few small children.

                      the candy we buy to give out now is many Milky Way bars. We used to give away many $100,000 bars, but those are made anymore.. Those were my favorite things to get when I trick-or-treated in my younger, not paralyzed days (we definitely trick-or-treated into our teenage years in my neighborhood, which was chock-full of kids, and thus, houses which gave away candy. We got great hauls every year.)

                          Maybe this new Hershey's candy bar (with no chocolate) will be the "It" candy for next Halloween. Hershey Gold described as a caramelized cream bar embedded with salty peanut and pretzel bits. Look for it after Dec. 1.

                            We've sat in the lobby of our condo during the last three years handing out candy ... I bought 150 pieces and had 25 left but gave it to a neighbour. After she told me she is diabetic type 1! She's a waitress at a strip club and wears at least 4" heels at all times. Tiny little thing.

                            I always try to include tootsie rolls or pops - had both this year along with sour Maynard's candy, various chocolate bars and suckers.

                            The news has reported 3 incidents of finding a sharp object shoved into the candy in my town and a town two hours away from me.
                            Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.
