Halloween Candy

Do you pass out candy? If so do you get the good stuff or the cheap stuff? When I was a kid most of the real cheap halloween candy  would get thrown away. We just did NOT like it, and neither do my kids. So even though its cheaper, I want to get stuff I know the kids will eat. And of course I will eat if we have leftovers. :-)  So I try to get some average priced candy that most people will eat.

I pass out candy every year, My son isn't ready for trick or treating yet.. I personally believe if a child can't say trick or treat, they shouldn't be going.. I see people bring babies or kids 1 and 2 who can't even talk, so the parents getting all the candy..

I make goodie bags every year.. Not even sure about this year, I had over 50 goodie bags last year and only got 5-10 kids in my neighborhood.. Ughh I had candy left for months..

We just usually get the childs play bag of mixed candy...unless I get really good coupons for candy...but my son is 4 and really into trick or treating so we dont hand out much.

We don't hand it out as we have little ones we take out.  When I did I got lollipops, and chocolate...the good stuff.  The cheap stuff is hard, and yucky...most of it.

I love handing out candy but right now we live in an apartment.  I get dressed up and have a good time with it. I may go to my parents so I can do it since they live in a neighborhoos with kids.  I like getting the mixed bags of stuff.

I do pass out candy every Halloween.  How could I not, poor kids just want to have fun and get treats.  I tend to buy candy that my kids or I enjoy, just in case there is leftovers.

yes i'll pass stuff out. Not sure what its going to be yet.

I was at target and saw chocolate covered pretzels and butterfinger covered pretzels. They were kind of spendy but they looked yummy! We don't get many kids here so we'd get the leftovers  :)

Nope, I don't pass out candy.  We live in a rural area and don't have kids stopping in.  Even if we did, I don't think I'd hand out candy (just 'cuz I'm a health snob  LOL actually, I have no willpower and there's no way the candy would last through the night)  I'd probably hand out halloween themed pencils or something like that.

I take my kids out, we don't pass out candy. Plus, there isn't a whole lot of kids in my neighborhood, my next door neighbors said last year they only had 4 kids knock.

We dont do Halloween. We spend the evening making donuts together and watching movies! The day AFTER, i let each one of my kids pick out a bag of their choice...... At 50 percent off!!!!
