In just a couple of weeks trick-or-treaters will be dressed up in costumes knocking on your door and expecting some candy. But for some reason, some folks like to give out other things for Halloween, which really disappoints the kids who wanted a Reese’s Cup. If you don’t want to be that person cleaning the eggs off the front of the house, don’t pass out any of these to trick-or-treaters.
·Raisins - These may be sweet, but they’re not candy, so no one wants them for Halloween. Raisinettes are covered in chocolate, so that’s a step in the right direction.
·Apples - Trick-or-treaters don’t want you to give them something their parents would feed them any day of the year.
·Animal crackers - As a general rule, don’t try to pass off lunchbox snacks as Halloween treats. So steer clear of pretzels, fruit snacks, and granola bars, too.
·Circus Peanuts - They’re an old-school candy that’s now considered one of the worst, so don’t waste anyone’s time with these orange marshmallowy things.
·Wax candy - While wax fangs and lips are technically edible, no one actually wants to eat them.
·Unwrapped candy - No parent in their right mind would allow their kids to eat some questionable candy that wasn’t in a wrapper, and the same goes for homemade treats too.
·Breath mints - Kids don’t care about fresh breath and this isn’t real candy anyway.
·Loose change - You can’t eat money and what’s a six-year-old going to buy with your dime?
·Toothbrushes - Sure, Halloween is all about candy and sugar is bad for your teeth, but unless you’re a dentist, stop with the toothbrushes. And don’t get us started on giving out dental floss on Halloween. Stick to candy - the GOOD candy - and everyone will be happy.
