The Best Trick-Avoiding Halloween Treats

September 17, 2012 by

When costumed critters are creeping about creating a multitude of midnight mischief, the best defense is a good offense. Send the naughtiest neighborhood knuckleheads smiling through the streets, shouting your praises.

The best way to keep the TP off your house, the post-its off your car, and your pumpkins in one piece is to earn a reputation for great treats. Sure, every Halloween brings new kinds of candy, and some of them are great. But we’ve compiled for you a list of always awesome, not-to-be-missed, change-your-costume-and-come-back-for-more candies that are tried, tested, and been proven to pass the test.

    My sweet Halloween story is about a sweet elderly lady who used to make caramel popcorn balls as treats & give them to all the neighborhood Trick or Treaters…this was during the 1960’s when you didn’t have to worry about unwrapped items. Her name was Mrs. Clifford & she must have been in her 80’s or 90’s at the time, and I still think about her every Halloween & how special her treats were…to take the time & make caramel popcorn balls & wrap each one was a very kind thing to do for her neighborhood children.

    the best halloween was three years ago in Salem,MA up on Gallows Hill at the witches circle it was about 60 degrees out with a breeze and a full moon with about 200 other people we turned the witches wheel to the next year it was also daylight savings time so we turned the clocks back it was magical. What a beautiful night.

    Brach’s candy corn is my favorite candy of all. Fall season there is so many “knock offs” . When all the stores run out of Brach’s, I refuse to buy any other brand. I stock pile my Brach’s candy corn ’cause I know once it hits the shelves, people are going scramble to buy it. Sad thing is that I can only find it in the stores around Halloween. I know it is a Halloween candy, but…..I for one would love to see it stocked in our local stores all year round! Whatcha think?
