Halloween Candy - Favorites; Throw it in the Bag

Post by Grt2bOutdoors » Thu Oct 31, 2019 4:27 pm

What is your favorite Halloween Candy to give/get in your Halloween basket/bag?

This year, the favorites with the kids is Skittles or Twizzlers. I know it's dentist approved :twisted:
My favorite is whatever I can give away so there is less for me to eat! :wink:

Kit Kat and Reese’s peanut butter cups.

I buy extra in case I have 100+ trick or treaters.

I never have that many little goblins. So I feast on the excess.

My favorite as a child were the home made popcorn balls. You don't see any home made stuff anymore.

Reese's or Hershey Bar. Grew up in the Hershey area. That'll never change.

You can buy the individually packaged Rice Krispies bars at the grocery store. They're chewy and taste good.

My neighbor used to give those out and I went and got one every year but never ate it. This year I gave out full size Twix. I was looking at some of the bags and people were cheap this year. Lots of dumdums.

I've actually picked up the large (7 oz) Hershey bars from Kroger for 25 cents each!! when they were available as a loss leader (not $10) in regular, dark chocolate and with almonds.... but don't expect many if any kids ....as we're real rural. But the chocolate bars will be put into the deep freezer if no one does show up...and will make for a nice treat sometime later.

There's more fear of tampered candy than actual tampered candy. Society has changed because of this fear, and it is no longer socially acceptable to give out home-made goods at Halloween. But there has never been a documented case of someone giving out tampered candy to neighborhood kids. The most famous case turned out to be the parent poisoning his own child for the life insurance, then attempting to blame Halloween candy.

The real danger that your kids face is traffic. Dressing up your kids in dark costumes and having them walk around in masks with impeded visibility does result in fatalities. Watching out for traffic and teaching your kids caution is the best way to keep them safe. Kids are 300% more likely to be struck by a car on Halloween.

Chocolate candy without nuts, peanuts and coconut.

Milky Way, Three musketeers, Twix, KitKat are the top contenders for me.

Another vote for Kit Kat and Reese's PB cups. Plus I just love Nestle's crunch. I'm hoping I'll have a few left over after the little monsters have come thru my neighborhood.

We are in a new neighborhood and are expecting a herd of 200+ kids. We originally bought only 125 pcs of candy, and when our neighbor said they bought 450 and still ran out, we went out for more. I got a mix of chocolate (Twix, Kit Kat, Crunch), fruit (Nerds, Fruit Rolls, Laffy Taffy) and filler candy (dum dums) in case we run low.

I didn't hand out chocolate because it seems a number of goblins are allergic to various nuts and stay away from candies that say made in facilities that handle nuts.

We take our kids to one of the ritzy neighborhoods for trick or treat. There is one house there that usually passes out one pound (yes one pound) Hershey chocolate bars. Don't know if they buy with a discount or if they are connected with a grocery/wholesaler and it's just free samples. One year another house in the same neighborhood gave out toothbrushes (so that was the trick part).

Kit Kat, the kids AND parents favorite! :)

On a side note, some prior posts of tampered halloween candy has been mentioned. This is one of the greatest urban myths out there.

It happens. As a kid, my trick-or-treating area had an instance of a pin in an apple. Luckily no one got hurt. They caught the guy who did it. It was a bummer because my mom didn’t allow us to eat homemade goodies we received after that.

Reese's Pieces, with the peanut butter cup a close second. My kids love Starburst. Wife voted for Swedish Fish. We had this discussion earlier in the day.

Once again we had 0 trick or treaters (our house is slightly out of the way in the neighborhood) . So I'm snacking on Snickers and Butterfingers were got just in case.

Looks like I'm in exactly the same boat. It's after 6:30 PM here on the west coast... it's been dark for almost an hour... and I've gotten no trick-or-treaters yet. And I've got a stockpile of nestle's crunches, peanut butter cups, kit Kat. I'll be munching on all of them for weeks.

I just read an article that stated Skittles is the most popular candy chosen by the kids nationally.
The article actually listed the favorite candy for each state. I only noticed PA, where I reside, and
small Hershey bars are the tops in PA.

No tricker treaters this year either. We live down a long hill and the houses are far apart. Kids have to then climb back up the hill. Geez...that described the neighborhood when I was a kid and we still managed to get a pillowcase full of candy.

But...the youngsters prefer to go down to the "flatlands" where the houses are closer together and they can get a big loot in a shorter period of time.

That leaves Reese's, Kit Kats, Lollipops, and Almond Joys for us. I'll freeze some of it, but Reese's are really good frozen so that doesn't help the diet.

We were home early (~6:30pm) because it was <20 degrees outside and my kids started trick or treating at 2:30pm at my office, which is basically the hub of Halloween for the entire city. We had a grand total of 1 trick or treater come to our door and we promptly gave them something from my kids' buckets.

Trick or treating really isn't a thing in our area anymore. Between trunk-or-treating the weekend before, malls, and businesses, there is very little door-to-door trick or treating here.

had that at our old rural area... houses were way too spread out for kids otherwise

as for last night, as expected, none.... so those large bars go into the deep freeze and we'll have them over time

Too bad you are located far from me, I'd have my children trick or treat at your place to gather my favourites!

When we first moved in here, about 15 years ago, there were a few trick or treaters.
No more.
It's an upscale neighborhood of large family homes, but all are empty nesters, except for the one new McMansion right next door to us.
The original owners had two young boys, and the new-ish owners do, too.

But we've never seen them out trick-or-treating, and this year was something new and different.
They rented those "party/play trucks", which back right into the driveway, and there are all sorts of activities for children.
Either the neighbors invited friends-with-children, or the game truck company also includes extra children :D

It keeps the children off the streets, and also limits the sugar haul.

DH had purchased a few little bags of organic/etc., gummy bear type thingies.
He polished them off before turning in last night...
Because they weren't *chocolate*, I didn't ask him to share.

Almond Joy, Mounds, Hershey bars.


I miss Mars bars in the light green wrapper (60s). Newer stuff (70s+) didn't taste the same.

Re: Halloween Candy - Favorites; Throw it in the Bag

Almond Joys and Mounds cuz I'm the only person in the house who likes them. (There's no "getting fat" smiley, eh? :twisted: ) I'll also take a Snickers in a pinch.

My daughter loves Nerds and my son likes M&Ms. My wife likes Reese's. We've got a pretty good variety of likes so no one is usually disappointed.

This year was the best Halloween we've had in a long time, very thankful. :beer

What is your favorite Halloween Candy to give/get in your Halloween basket/bag?

This year, the favorites with the kids is Skittles or Twizzlers. I know it's dentist approved :twisted:
My favorite is whatever I can give away so there is less for me to eat! :wink:
I keep Reese's milk chocolate peanut butter candy for me.
