Old Oct 11th, 2010, 04:25 AM        And what are we giving trick or treaters?
I have no more boxes of Frankenberry to hand out and get weird looks from parents about. I have assembled little treat bags...half of them are Frankenstein's monsters and half are mummies. Each contains:

- A coupon for a free Big Boy kids' meal
- One or two "gummy body parts"
- A few foil wrapped halloween chocolates (mainly eyeballs and some big medallion things with dracula on them)
- A piece of bubble gum
- A spider or bat ring
- One or two of the Hershey's Candy Corn Kisses, but I nearly gagged from the smell of them.

I've handed out great stuff like full-size candy bars before, but I notice they jack the prices way up around halloween and I had to buy the trick or treat supply several times to replace disappearing stock.

I'm never home for Halloween really, but before I head out for the night, a few kids always stop by to trick-or-treat. One of my favorite memories was a kid knocking on our door some years ago, and I didn't have any candy, so I ran into the kitchen and grabbed a box of spaghetti and gave it to him. His face lit up with so much excitement, he turned out and exclaimed, "Mommy! Look what I got!" as he held the spaghetti above his head with glee.

I guess what I'm saying here is: stock up on spaghetti.

We're doing king-sized candy bars so that the neighborhood kids won't mess with our house.

Zero kids come to my apartment. Good on 'em. I wouldn't give anything to the Unparented anyway.

I tried not to make a snap judgment here, but The Nun Eater reminds me of the tool I once saw hanging outside a Hot Topic that called out, "I eat babies, heh heh heh" as we walked past.

We have a bunch of friends over and watch horror movies all night long. Each person brings a bag of candy so we have tons to give away to the kids. I also stock up over the season on some of the bigger candy like full-sized candy bars and some of the novelty stuff like stickers, pencils, light-sticks, and little toys to give away as well.

This year I got full-sized Ring Pops and Fun Dips. I saw the Ring Pops' cover and had to buy it.


And we also give away a prize for best costume. This year we have two; a Marshmallow Brain Burger for best costume under five years old, and an horribly awesome Transformer for five or over.



It's called Ejector and it transforms into a toaster!

I'm going to get something that is cheap and not delicious enough for kids to take all of because I have to leave a bowl out. I don't want one kid taking all of it so it has to be mediocre but not suck totally. I was surprised last year how brazen they were about just taking handful after handful while my brother and I were sitting right next to it (we're also really tall and I was dressed in a pretty creepy costume. He was just smoking and drinking gin.). It seems like they get more greedy when they're in packs, but when it's just a kid and his buddy they're really modest and polite. Does anyone have any suggestions for candy that doesn't totally suck but isn't worth taking a whole bowl of?

Get something good and scare the fuck out of the ones that take handfuls. Then scream after them "THAT'S WHAT YOU GET FOR BEING GREEDY PIGS"

I actually had a neighbor who used to do that. She would spend tons of money buying whole boxes of those giant fundraiser candy bars from kids, then she would leave her intercom on and leave them out on the front porch with a sign saying TAKE ONLY ONE. She'd watch and when a kid grabbed more than one she'd let out this bloodcurdling screech and scare them to death.

Was I the only kid who liked those weird toffee caramel things that come in plain orange and black wrappers? The joke was that they were everywhere and they were awful but I would only get 2 or 3 and they were probably the most halloweeny of all the candy I got.
