                    did you know that if you eat candy corn and salted peanuts(at the same time) it tastes exactly like a PAYDAY candy bar- and costs a lot less!

                              It's been awhile since I stole candy out of my kid's Trick or Treat Bags, but I would go for items they didn't care (as much) for. Mounds and Amond Joy, Welchs junior mints, and some carmel stuff would get turned over to me voluntarily. In some cases a little slight-of-hand was used to get me a Goo-Goo Cluster or two and Mallo-Cups were MINE.

                              Today we get only one or two trick or treaters and with no kids of our own at home things are "Less Sweet"

                              Someone mentioned Popcorn Balls in a post above. That made me think of all the home-made treats we got in years past. We used to look forward to foil-wrapped fudge squares and Brownies, popcorn balls and candy apples. Not so these days. I would discourage any of my grandkids from opening any homemade treat they receive unless we know the 'direct' source and trust the giver ! Way too many dangerous items are 'shared' these days. I hope everyone will teach their children to be careful about those things.

                                I LOVE CANDY CORN or the CANDY PUMPKINS

                                We give out little treat bags made from the halloween ziplocks, usually 5 or 6 fun size candy bars, not the minis/bites, and some sort of trinket from (Oriental Trading Company)

                                This year it is squeezable skeleton heads, when yo squeeze them the eyes pop out and stuff pops from the ears.

                                Just remember candy fans DO NOT EAT TOO MUCH or YOU WILL

                                    The candy corn that's shaped like pumpkins, moons, black cats, etc., and popcorn balls. Trick-or-Treating was fun as a child, but I'm not sure how it is these days.

                                      Roasted salted pumpkin seeds. I don't have a sweet tooth.

                                      Butternut squash, and buttercup squash seeds are equally good this way.

                                        Butterfingers! And (when I can FIND them,) miniature Clark bars! They have a 'lighter' texture than Butterfingers. There's a Wal-mart about 10 miles from me and is the ONLY Wal-mart which carries the Clark bars, and only at Halloween. I usually buy about 4 bags.

                                              I don't eat candy now, but when I was a kid it was candy corn.

                                                I'll tell you which candy I hate . . . those peanut butter-flavored chews in the black or orange waxy wrapper.

                                                    Mellocreme harvest mix which is candy corn, pumpkins, etc.

                                                    There's a variety pack I get at Wal-Mart that's deadly, I've only seen them at Christmas and Halloween, and it's a mix of minature Reese's, York peppermint patties, and Hershey's milk chocolate. I keep them in the refrigerator, and am already on my second bag.

                                                      I really like Halloween candy, especially candy corn, but it's hard on my teeth. Try the new Candy Corn Hershey kisses, which just kind of melt in your mouth.

                                                      I love bright red candy apples, but don't see them much any more. Seems like caramel apples are more popular.

                                                      I don't know what it is, but nobody out here in WA comes trick or treating anymore. I buy candy and nobody comes. Seems like all the kids go to the mall now. I kind of miss all the ghoulish kids coming around. Guess paranoia set in. I used to walk for miles and was never accosted or molested, never got razor blades or contaminated stuff. Just lots of Smarties, nickels, dimes, pennies, religious pamphlets, homemade popcorn balls, a colorful assortment of sweet stuff.

                                                        Paydays or little bags of popcorn. And the little hotel sized bars of soap.

                                                          So funny! I remember NEVER touching them when I was a child. They looked 'yucky' because they were wrapped in the boring wax paper, and the peanut butter 'coloring' was gross looking. I avoided them like the plague.

                                                          I FINALLY tried one about two years ago (as I was 'sifting' through DD's unwanted Halloween candy.) I must have been hungry or something, because they actually tasted GOOD! I like the 'bit-o-honey' texture. I wouldn't go out and buy them to hand out, but I won't toss them in the trash anymore if my DD receives any again. LOL!

                                                          I didn't know it until this year but they have a name - "Mary Janes". They are also probably my favorite Halloween candy - I could never eat the candy that they make candy corn and other shapes out of - ewwww.
