They can eat all the candy they want Halloween night.  Then it goes in the trash.  They are only 5 and 3 when they get a little older they will be allowed to gorge themselves on candy for a full 24 hours before we throw it away.

Why take them trick or treating andd then tell them they cant keep the candy? Thats like going to a buffet and saying you can only have salad. We will be keeping ours.

We go through it and try keep what they like. I'd say 80% of it goes to waste. They don't eat much candy.
