about a dozen tootsies rolls and assorted candies

only had about 30 kids tonight, so we've got a lot left.

I picked a bad time to diet.

Like always I didn't buy any. Haven't had a trick or treater in 8 years. If some kid is so dedicated he/she wants to find my apartment I'll be impressed and they're welcome to a couple ketchup packets or a package of Ramen.

Btw I've never understood fun sized candy bars. You know what's fun? More than two bites.

My son didn't like his Kit-Kat, so I ate it. Other than that, I haven't touched anymore candy.

Waaaay too much. I bought a lot here, and have been nibbling. Then they brought in donuts, chili dogs, and lots of Fun Size candies to work. Then I came home and we had a below-expected turnout of neighborhood urchins.

Glug.

We always hand out full-sized candy bars because we're cool like that. Oh, and the fact that we live in an older neighborhood without many kids helps as well.

Maybe it's because the parents don't want to take their kids to your house. :shake:

Didn't have many trick-or-treaters this year at all ... about 7-ish.

I had one solo trick 'r treater. Little black kid in Bears gear, all by himself. He left with quite a haul. My boys will destroy the rest in the next few days.

I saved a few Snickers and a big box of Mike and Ikes for myself. OK, the Mike and Ikes were for me in the first place.

Had maybe 20 kids. Wanted more so that all this fucking candy isn't sitting around here.

Went and snagged a couple bags of sale candy tonight. Gonna nibble for a long while.

We have a variety of Almond Joy, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Whoppers, and Heath Bars. I have tested all of them for freshness at least once.

We had a strong year for trick or treaters this year, at least a dozen and maybe as many as 20. They were from some other neighborhood that drove into ours, though. Not local kids.

Found out today apartment complexes don't get trick-or-treaters. No surprise. Just saying. I've sat here with a bowl of candy all night on the counter. And nothing. Guess I have to eat it now...

Only had 15-20 kids come by last night, so I've got a lot of leftover candy.

Any of you notice how most of the kids just automatically go for 3 or 4 pieces? My dad or mom would have spanked my ass for being such a greedy little turd if they had seen me doing that. And of course, the greedy ones never say thanks.

I told the last couple of kids to take extra if they wanted since it was late in the evening, but jeez, do parents even take the time to teach their kids manners these days?

Trick or treat isn't like it used to be. Had maybe a total of 20 kids in 8-9 visits. Not a single teenager or kid above the age of 10-12

I handed out handfuls of mixed variety; smarties, tootsie rolls, now and laters, lollipops, fireballs, bubble gum.

I'll bring the leftovers to work, about 50% left. I ate some tootsie rolls but they don't taste as good as they used to like most candy.

I am hearing a lot of this...I wonder why that is. Maybe parents are just too damn paranoid any more.

We actually had a bit more than normal, we always buy a box of 36 candy bars and have quite a few left over. Tonight we had to shut off the light a little early after we gave out the 35th one.

We don't have any trick or treaters come out to where we live, so we take our kids to a neighborhood. I've eaten a snickers out of my sons bag and a milky way out of my daughters bag so far. This was all covert of course after they went to bed.

I think alot of that is due to "Organized Daylight Trick-or Treat events". In my downtown all the buisiness's give out candy from 4-6. Its like a parade. I think a lot of Malls do the same.
I remember the day when kids were cut loose on Halloween. In this day and age parental involvement is a requirement.

This is exactly it. Becuase of media hype for the stastically very few things that could happen to a kid, people are big pussies.

I submit that it is no more dangerous than it used to be, and possibly even safer, but people are just big gigantic vaginas about it.

I think a lot of the teenagers are having Halloween parties instead. Today's parents spend big bucks for everything.

I'm 49 and I used to go trick-or-treating until I was about 15 or 16. I used a pillow case and always filled it at least once and about 1/4 of the second round. I used to stay out until 9pm-that was the limit

Now people shut their doors at 8pm and a ton of people just got out to avoid giving out candy.

Very different and another lost tradition......

We always have a small amount of candy available just in case, but we never get trick or treaters because we're too rural.

I haven't eaten any and don't really have any desire to do so.

We had bunches, ran out of candy about 7:00 and had to put up a sign that we were out.
Had a kid party after trick-or-treating and the kids handed out most of the candy, which is probably part of why it disappeared so fast.

We have a house up the street that hands out packages of Top Ramen noodles and a can of soda pop. The kids donít get it but the Mrs. and I think itís hilarious.

I was surprised at how well the cans of Busch Light went over. Had a few trick-or-treaters come back for seconds. One staggered back for a third. Great kids in our area.
