Halloween Candy? For the kids and for you.

    Since Halloween is coming ever closer, what candy do you guys give out to the kids? Also, do you buy a stash for yourself or have to make extra trips to the store to replace what you have eaten? Finally, how many kids usually hit your house?

    For me, I buy good stuff and plain stuff. Good stuff (Snickers, Milky Way, Kit Kat, etc) goes to the cute kids who have really made an effort. Plain stuff (crappy suckers and knock-off tootsie rolls) to the older kids who are clever enough to dress up as teen-agers.

    I usually get an extra few bags for myself and go through it before Halloween so I always make another run (or two) to get more candy.

    The first house we lived in had 9 kids stop by. We lived on a small cul-de-sac away from the main residential neighborhoods. At our current house we average 175 kids.

    I go all out for Halloween - reese cups, snickers bars etc. for the kids I like. The ones I don't like get pennies. For the trully excellent kids I give them packs of Harry London's buckeyes.

    We gave out Reese Peanut Butter Cups last year. I was able to get the packs with 4 cups in them last year through work really cheap. We only had about 15-20 kids come through so we were giving them two or three at a time... we were the favorite house on the block. My kids aren't old enough to go out yet but when they do I'll have to take my share :)

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    We don't have very many kids in our neighborhood, so we don't get too many trick-or-treaters. We buy the good stuff though, because there's always a bunch left over for us to eat.

    When I was a kid, there was a guy down the street who worked as a Hostess delivery man. He always gave out bunches of Twinkies, cupcakes, Ho Ho's, etc. We tried to hit that house as often as possible before they recognized us.

    We currently don't get too many kids (prob. a half dozen to a dozen)... I have no clue what we give out (Mrs. Gbear takes care of the candy... the first year we were married, I ate so much candy 'while on the job' that I lost the position for future years :wink2: )... we never buy candy outside of halloween, so I tend to help myself to whatever is purchase for the kids :biggrin:

    I attend a lot of food and candy distribution shows and bring home tons of candy for my kids.

    Much of it new and not in the store yet. Anyone remember the caramel M&M's? Maybe not since it was a limited release. I just brought back the new thicker Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

    What they do not like or eat we put out in a big bowl on our front porch for Halloween.
    One year we probably had 200 Airheads in the bowl. Most kids are good and only take one or two. The bowl is empty by the time we return home.

    I live in a 180 home sub-division that goes all out and gets a lot of outside traffic for Halloween.

    I expected some response from the board on that line.
    I wasn't sure if it would be from the paint chip crowd or the I gave some goofy shit crowd.:wink2:

    I knew you wouldn't have written that inadvertently and couldn't take the chance that it might pass unaddressed.
