Halloween has got to be one of the best days ever – Ring a door bell, say the magic words and ding-ding-ding – candy is delivered into your plastic pumpkin bucket. I love Halloween! The sound of rustling leaves, the chatter of kids and parents, giggles, and an occasional shriek or “boo”. For us, it’s never been about spooks and ghouls, it’s always been about the candy. The goal: get out there and get it because it’s the Willy Wonka jackpot of chocolates, sweet n’ sours, and everything wonderful!
My fellow Americans, I charge you to be generous and give the kiddos what they want. They have put weeks into planning and making costumes, will endure hot and sticky masks and itchy make-up, and have rehearsed their Trick-or Treats and Thank You’s. So don’t be a tightwad or Halloween scrooge. Don’t give out any of this going right into the garbage crap:
If you want to see happy monsters, be a superstar and give out these Top 10 All-Time-Sure-to-Please-Favorite candy:
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- M&M’s (Peanut Butter or Pretzel are wicked!)
- Kit Kats
- Twix Bars
- Sour Patch Kids
- Airheads (regulation size)
- Almond Joy
Remember, NO fun size or mini anything. If you are going to give mini’s then let them take a HANDFUL. Anything less and you might as well turn your lights off and go to bed.
