Halloween: Candy’s Favorite HolidayMonday, October 26th, 2009 by Jon Prince
Since Halloween is right around the corner, I have been focusing on blogging about the best candies to hand out on Halloween. There were the candies that my friends and I would to hoard and boast about who had more.
As great as it is to give out the popular favorites, don’t forget that kids love variety. Don’t be afraid to switch it up and give something out that you aren’t sure kids will like, because if everyone gave out Reese’s…
One thing I got most excited for as a kid—and when I say kid, I mean until I graduated high school. Yes, I trick or treated every year until college. It’s not every day that you can ring a doorbell and be greeted with a costume, a smile, and free candy—were the “full size” candies. So many people give you the little fun size, and bite size which aren’t bad, they just aren’t special.
Even if the full size bar wasn’t a candy I liked, the idea of the full size was so exciting. We’d see our friends on the street and let them know “The house with the Steelers pumpkin is giving out full size snickers!!” and those kids would run off in excitement to find the house and collect their full size candy.
The bragging at the end of the night would usually revolve around who had more full size candies. This doesn’t mean you have to blow your bank account on full sizers to make the kids happy, I’m just informing. Whatever candy you may choose to give out, I’m sure the trick-or-treaters won’t be disappointed. Have a happy Halloween!
