And thanks to the fear of various food allergies, you end up with a boatload of #13 & #19.

My 3 year old has an egg allergy. That crosses several off of the list. His allergy is the his head swells up and he can't breathe kind. It sucks. Have to carry an epipen.

When my daughter was five my wife suggested that we be more healthy and give out packets of pretzels or Goldfish for Halloween. Without missing a beat my daughter said in her snarkiest voice, “why don’t we just give out cans of soup!” Out of the mouth of babes.

Twix for me, please.

Your daughter was right. Don't ever be that person.

Lately I've been digging Snickers peanut butter, which are basically the same as my other favorite, Reese's Fast Break. Both have a layer of peanut butter and a layer of nougat. The variance of texture when you bite through them just makes them amazing. Running neck and neck is Milky Way Midnight.

Frankly I like everything on that list, but I think the stuffed Reese's is artificially high because they are new and being pushed everywhere.

I heard on the radio this morning that Reese's is setting up some sort of vending machine in New York which allows you to trade in other candy for Reese's Cups. No idea how it works or whether it works or what type and quantity of candy is required to be equal to a Reese's Cup, but they said if all goes well they'll expand to more cities next Halloween.

I would not have predicted the combo of sugar and peanut butter anything would lead to confectionary prosperity.


My brother gives out trail mix. Not much better than a can of soup but at least it has peanuts in it.


P.S., TUPF tell your daughter she has a future in sit coms if she gets tired of the music circuit. Very funny. :lol:

Not a Snickers guy, but when they came out with the Snickers PB had to try one and now a fan.

My son was very excited to get a heath bar tonight I don’t know which shocked me more, the fact that they still make them or the fact that a 6 yo knew what they were

Meanwhile, they were predicting 2 to 3 inches of rain to fall during trick or treating time tonight, so the small village in which I live postponed it until Friday night. And of course, the rain all moved south of here and it was dry during the time period. :roll:

On the bright side, I can drink more beer while walking the kids around since it's gonna be Friday night and I don't have to work the next day. My fear is we'll get run out of candy at our house by kids coming from other neighborhoods to get a second go-round two days after racking up tonight.

A bag of small Heath bars purchased at target is in my freezer at home

Heath bars are awesome; Reese's only slightly less so.

A friend of mine offered kids a choice; candy or a small toy (she got them in quantity from Oriental Trading, so the cost was about the same). A suprisingly large portion of the kids picked the toys (little bats and skeletons).

How is Rolo even on the list? Does anybody really buy Rolo other in October to give it away?

Also the lack of dots, junior mints, and york peppermint patties is disturbing

Buy a bag of rolos and a bag of small pretzels (twists are okay but the grid type are better)... Spread the pretzels on a baking sheet and put a rolo on each, and put in a warm oven until the rolos soften, take out and smash one whole pecan into each rolo, so the rolo mushes into the pretzel and wraps the pecan. These alone make rolo worth it.

Of course you can replace rolos with Milky Way Midnight minis...

3 Musketeers way too high... nougat means "cheap French chocomush"

it's tolerable when covered with caramel or caramel/nuts.. but as a stand along, cheap French chocomush is nasty

My wife told me that the bulk of the trick or treaters Wednesday wanted skittles the most, followed by plain M and M's. Did not touch the Butterfingers.

Based on the preferences, I wonder if there might be regional differences. Would be interested to see what they like in the Northeast, or Chicago, vs the South.

If they chose Skittles over Butterfingers, there's only three explanations:
1. They have chocolate and/or peanut allergies. <----( I blame this on the massive popularity in general, see: https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/201 ... 726235002/ )
2. They are using them for the many variations of drinking games (google that), or
3. They're freaking weird.

I mean, Skittles are fine, but choosing them over anything chocolate? C'mon.

Um... you've obviously never tried freezing them. Seriously. Try freezing them.

JuJubes or Jujy Fruits should be at the top.

The only place I still see those is at the movie theatres, along with sno-caps and Good and Plenty.

Also good (as are necco wafers). But CVS carries them around here.

If you like esoteric, try a Cracker Barrel--they even have Violets (those life saver-like square candies without a hole, which I used to get because I was the only one who liked them).
