What do you pass out to trick or treaters?

We try to pass out noncandy items like bags of pretzels, animal crackers, teddy grahams or whatever. What do you hand out? Do you have a favorite candy you pass out?

  • My MIL is a librarian and she used to pass out books. The kids LOVED it!

    We have also passed out comic books and pez dispensers. The comic books we got from the comic book store on free comic book day. We paid $.50 a piece for them.

  • I wish we had trick or treaters. We live on a dark and spooky road that no one will come down. :( When we lived at our last place. We handed out treat bags for the neighborhood kids we knew. With candy, pencils, rings etc. in plastic cups. We handed out full sized candy bars to the other kids. We always had smarties and teddy grahams for the wee ones. I tried to keep little toys on hand to for the kids who couldn't have much sugar. I let them pick what they wanted. It has always depended on how many and the ages of kids in the neighborhood.

  • We pass out candy. I just stick with name brand candies that are on sale. Like this year we have Hershey's miniatures, caramel apple lollipops, hersheys' nuggets, hershey's kisses, and Nestle Crunch miniatures.

  • I bought a bag of small crayons and a thing of Halloween coloring books, and a bag of miniature play-dohs. I put together a goodie bag of the crayons, books, play-doh, and candy bars. We only get a few kids around here. But we're always the favorite house! lol.

  • nothing because we are out trick or treating ourselves. Can't do both at the same time. One year we had a few kids stop by after we were done and we gave them some of the kids' candy from our trick or treating. Last year I picked up some candy on sale that morning and we passed it before we left and after we got back but we still had a ton left. We had gotten stuff we liked (peanut butter cups and Hershey bars, stuff like that).
