    In a follow-up survey to NJ's Wildest thing in your kid's bag, what is the best stuff you ever received as a kid when trick-or-treating. (Buck Nasty - Please keep your mind out of the gutter :wink2: )

    The best we used to receive were fresh donuts from the lady who lived up the street. She owned a bakery and they were always the highlight.

    The worst was 5 cents. Yeah, one guy used to give out 5 pennies to each kid. Why? We had the neighborhood dentist who used to give out the toothbrushes, but the 5 pennies ranked lower.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    When I was a kid, there was a house around the corner where the guy worked as a Hostess distributor. He would give out Twinkies, Ho-Hos, Cupcakes, etc. There was also a house that would always rent a cotton candy machine and give that away- we thought that was pretty cool.

    I remember all the candy bars being the King Size... but there was this lady who dressed up as a old witch.. she had this big club and was stirring this huge pot over a burner.. she'd give candy and offer "Witch's Brew for those brave enuf"..the best warm cider ever.. and then she'd sprinkle "Brains of Bats" or something or another (cinnamon)... perf on those cold Trick or Treat nights... hit that house a couple times a night

    buckeyefool He's back and better than ever!

    I can't remember allot of specific stuff. But I'm at the age where it was about when I was 8 or so is when everyone started to have to be carefull and you could start getting your candy x-rayed and stuff. It sucks that there are enough crazy people out there thats kids can never really experience halloween like We did.

    I had a couple kids last night who came up to the door with no bag or anything to put the candy in. I could not figure out what they were doing until I saw them walk back down the driveway where their father was hand inpecting each piece before he would drop it down into a bag. I could not help but think about how pathetic that was.

    Amen Brother, without a doubt one of the five worst candies of all time.

    What kind of horrible childhood must someone have gone through to now inflict circus peanuts on trick-or-treaters?!? Unholy monsters.

    Best: King Size Snickers. That bitch must have had a photographic memory because we kept trying to go back again, and year after year, she remembered every goddamn kid. We never tricked her into giving us a second candy bar.

    King size bars are the best. It really ticks me off that today they sell bags of candy bars an inch long and call it 'fun size'. What's fun about that?

    Give me a Baby Ruth the size of one of King Kong's turds and I'll show you some fun.

    :lol:

    Best: Any candy with peanut butter, preferably full sized Reese's Cups.

    Worst: I actually received a coupon one year when I was a kid. I think it was for laundry detergent. Senile old bitch.

    Every three years or so I get a craving for those and buy a package. After I few I realize they have not gotten any better and wonder why I bought an entire bag. I am sure I will continue to do it until the day I die.

    Obviously, their marketing section isn't run by a female...any woman will tell you that one inch definitely isn't "fun size".

    Circus nuts or Necco .... worst candy of all time.... (Peeps too, but no one ever gets peeps for Halloween)

    Best - King Sized candy bars - used to go to Gov. Rhodes' crib on Tremont and load up on em. One year I went there about 10 times. (Kept changing costums with my friends...)

    Circus peanuts and candy corn are the worst ever. I'm convinced both of these candies were made in 1918 and we are still taking from the same, original supply. Someday in the future the supply will finally be exhausted and we will never see either of these horrible candies again.
