    I gave out full sized bars twice, there was one kid as Krusty the Clown, and another as Homer Simpson.

    They’re very orderly. In my area, there’d be bigger kids pushing the smaller ones out of the way, grabbing and then running off with no “thank you”.

    I live in a gated community, hundreds of kids and their parents some how get it. I run out of candy every year no matter how much I buy…

    We live on a 1/2 mile long cul-de-sac with 30 houses, each at the end of a rather long driveway. To do our block would take about 1.5 miles of walking. Nobody is coming into this neighborhood to trick or treat. Too much walking for too little candy. We’ll be lucky if we see the next door neighbors’ kids.


    My wife, nonetheless, bought 10 lbs of candy. If it goes like last year, we’ll put the excess in the freezer and finish it around Easter.

    And if you want to blow the minds of late adolescents or teenagers, when they hold out their bag and say “Trick or treat!”, say “Treat, thank you.” Then reach in and take something.
    You get the most dumbfounded expressions as the mumble “but, but…” before you give it back.


    I used to dress up in a scary costume. When the kiddies knocked I would quickly open the door, yell and jump out waving my arms. It would scare the sh*t out of them. The next year, the repeaters would stay 20 feet from the door and let the newbies ring the bell. Makes for a memorable experience.

    My favorite cartoon had a kid with his hands on the handle of a detonator and his friend saying “trick or treat”
    (I assume the wires didn’t connect to anything?)

    At least we don’t have the outdoor outhouses to be tipped over anymore!

    I could never afford to give out full sized candy bars! Always kinda weirded me out when people did that when I was a kid. This year is the first year I will have lived somewhere people get trick or treaters and I’m so excited! I have like bags of reeses and crunch bars and skittles and stuff and I can’t wait to hand them out!

    I live on a busy residential street, still only get 4-5 trick or treaters every Halloween. I give out full-sized candy bars as reward!

    This year we all decided to be Nerd’s candies. We each dressed up a foam poster board as different flavors of Nerd’s. I was Wacky Watermelon. We wore plaid shirts, high water pants, converse shoes, bow ties, B/C glasses (movie 3D glasses with the lenses pushed out) with tape in the middle, and other ‘nerd’ attire.
    .
    We had our church’s Trunk or Treat last Saturday. I couldn’t find Nerd’s candy to give out, so I gave out Smarties, instead.
    .
    B/C glasses are ‘Birth Control Glasses’, glasses so ugly that you don’t have to worry about taking birth control.

    We have been giving out Grandma’s Cookies two-packs for several years. The number of kids has been slowly dropping over the same period, but I don’t think the cookies are the reason.

    One halloween a grey kitty that ran in every time the door was opened for trick or treaters. A nice cat, it allowed us to pick it up and put it back outsiide. No one knew where it came from. Girl next door adopted it.

    We used to give out Halloween candy. One year some kids came to our door and we gave them candy. Then one of the kids went around the side of our house and flipped the switch turning off our power, leaving us in the dark. THAT’S HOW YOU SAY THANKS? That was the last time we gave out candy.
