DO PARENTS STILL CHECK THEIR CHIDRENS HALLOWEEN CANDY BEORE THEY EAT IT???

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
When my siblings and I trick-or-treated my parents made sure to check the candy before we were even allowed to THINK about eating it. Anything from unwrapped candy, candy that was deformed in some way, out of date candy would be thrown out. And they always felt the candy for any razors or needles that some sick bastard may have tried hiding. So, do parents still do this? Do they still take the time to make sure that their candy a STRANGER has bought them is safe to eat? Do YOU inspect? We're trick-or-treating next week and YES I WILL BE CHECKING!!

No. It's all prepackaged stuff. I do take a couple pieces to eat first and tell my kids I'm checking for poison though. Bwahaha.

I'm assuming they're old enough and you have taught them what to check or right??

Well, you did not get it but no, I do not check their candy, They can check their own candy.

Well...they range in age from 19 to 34 and one lives in england, so I would assume they would check their own candy. I am definitely not going to england....
