We're a Kit Kat and Whoppers family. How about you?
dots is what i am giving out...
I'm debating whether to give out little boxes of rasins or the little Christian fundamentalist booklets.
Just kidding but I remember getting these booklets when I was a kid (bastards).
I'm not giving out candy since I won't be home but at a party.
Because last Halloween, when I stuck the razor blades and hatpins in the Snickers bars I was giving, the kids could tell right away by the scotch-taped wrapper.
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Man, this is the worst time of the year to go on a diet.
The M&M Mars Assortment that I got @ Costco.
Pamphlets on preventing juvenile diabetes.
...Or reese's peanut butter cups. Our house is at the end of a cul-de-sac, and doesn't get very many trick or treaters. I figure if we end up with a surplus, I can always put the candy into cookies.
A heaping ladle of refried beans in each kid's bag.
Tonight at Target I bought....
nothing... i don't believe german kids have taken up trick or treating
Aussie kids have.
Although this is going to be a true test of this neighbourhood, seeing that it'll be the first Halloween in our new place. From what I've seen, we've got some nice neighbours, and families with children.
I'll qualify that by saying by comparison, where I used to live back home, it used to be really busy on Halloween, once upon a time, but my mother says that she hardly gets anyone coming around on Halloween night anymore.
We'll probably get a potpourri of chocolates and stuff. Don't know yet. Likely going to make a run to K-Mart at the mall around the corner from our house and pick up whatever we can, but M&M's and Reeses will be the givens.
Will concur with Bill-- an absolutely bad time to be on a diet. Especially when you live with a chocoholic.
But then again, it's a prelude to Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the danger to diets then, too.
Excellent call on the Dots. A fine candy. The one trick to Dots is that you should only buy the boxes that are wrapped in cellophane. Dots wrapped in cellophane are much much much fresher than those not wrapped. And freshness is important with Dots.
Not sure what my house is giving out, but when I get a place of my own, I am so going to be the coolest guy and give out full sized candy bars in the early evening. I will forever remember the house in my neighborhood who did that, and I think that was the first stop for every kid from the first Halloween they knew about it to the last.
I'm not going to be at home I think. My wife has to work and my friend's band is playing a show so I'm going to be there. Their band's "musical costume" is going to be Devo.
All through September and October I cut each and every coupon from the Sunday paper's advertising section.
On Halloween, I drop one in each bag.
Nothing says 'Happy Halloween!' like fifty cents off a 64 ounce bottle of Pert Plus.
chocolate!! chocolate!! did someone mention chocolate!!
We are having a mix of snack sized chocolate bars, I will be manning the door on this night, as my husband is working.
The complete list, culled yesterday on a K-Mart run:
"Fun size" Dove bars
Miniature Milky Ways
Minties (an Australian form of peppermint candies)
That oughtta keep them happy...
I'll be going out to dinner with my wife and some friends, that way I won't be home when kids knock on the door.
True story... One year, my brothers and I were trick-or-treating, and one neighbour wasn't ready, or prepared for Halloween. He was presumably a single man, in his early 20's, living alone, and had his front porchlight off.
He admitted he didn't have any candy ready, as he came to the front door, saucepan and ladle in hand.
"Hey kids, want some soup?" he said, in an almost comic fashion.
He did eventually manage to find some form of candy, so we didn't leave empty-handed.
Bottles of Guinness and condoms.
Single men in their twenties are so cute.
AFL, has your house ever been egged for the crime of coupons?
