I just buy a bag or two of mini chocolate bars and give a handful to everybody.

Something I love (Kit Kats, Twix, or something else good), then I turn off my lights, and pray that no trick-or-treaters come so I can eat it all.

Ugh I hate all the door knocking on Halloween, but my fiancé insists. We get a box of mini chocolate bars and some gummy kind, and then give out one of each. We give out the gross flavors first so the leftovers are all the tasty kinds.

I live in an apartment now that doesn’t participate in any sort of trick or treat, so nothing. But when I used to participate in this I would always get something I liked in case I ended up with leftovers – so chocolate! Kit Kats, Recese, Snickers, Milky Way.

We have a local Trick or Treat event that draws approx. 400 kids in an afternoon so we STOCK UP. We usually buy 8-10 bags and give 1 piece to each kid. We buy assorted mini-chocolate bars, the Willie Wonka Assortments, Dum Dums, and Bubblegum. Listed in order of popularity among the children.

@Ruby-Redshoes: I try to give out the nut-free candy, but the variety isn’t as good. My cousin’s daughter has a nut intolerance, and she buys a bag of candy specifically for her daughter so she doesn’t lose over half of her bag with nut-filled candy.

I live on a crescent, so we get a lot of kids, but my sister lives on a small court and the kids usually skip her house. I told her to go to the community centre because they are selling 10-packs of free swim and free skate passes for $5. It’s pricey if you get a lot of kids, but she’ll get a dozen or so trick-or-treaters. It’s a nice alternative to junk!

@Ruby-Redshoes:  We buy candy we love! To avoid kids from taking too much or being picky we prebag the candy. I used to not do it, but since we live in a small community we sometimes have 16 year olds that show up at the door and one year I had a boy just take a massive handful of candy, without saying trick or treat OR thank you and leave. He even moved all the little kids to the side to do this.

We buy a lot of candy, but in the prebagged sacks we put a Fruit Roll Up and two additonal snack sized candy.

@Ruby-Redshoes:  You are super nice and do exactly what I do too.  I definitely give out chocolate but I also have a backup choice for children with nut/chocolate allergies.  I like to do fin size Skittles and M&Ms; 2-3 bags per kid.

We just buy bags of whatever we like, haha. So generally kit kats, milky way, snickers, nerds, etc. We get tons of kids so one of us generally has to be manning the door at all times, and we give out 2-3 to each kid.

Last year FI came home with a giant bucket of Halloween pretzels… and after I brought up that we live in a small apartment building and won’t get trick-or-treaters, he said “Oh, no… these are for me!”
So we didn’t buy candy this year because he keeps it for himself!
