Halloween Candy

Halloween candy

Halloween candy changes from generation to generation.  The candy we had as a kid is usually the candy we like for life.  I do not see the appeal of the candy kids eat today, but I am sure my parents felt the same way about me.

When I was a kid, there were fears of razor blades in candy.  I am pretty sure this was an urban legend, but it was real to us.  After trick-or-treating, my dad would examine all of our candy piece by piece feeling it for any foreign objects.  He also charged a “fee” for this…which we paid in candy.  He took a few of his favorites to keep for himself.  I was happy to give my dad all the Tootsie Rolls in my bag since I did not like those anyway.

It was also a time when candy was not the only thing handed out to kids since everybody knew everybody for the most part in the neighborhood I grew up in.  We also got pencils from teachers, toothbrushes from the dentist, a stack of pennies from another neighbor and once a goldfish from a pet store owner.  Yes, a real goldfish in a plastic bag filled with water.  We had to give those back.

Now that I’m on the other side of the trick-or-treat bag, I sometimes think of giving out whole candy bars, but have never done it.  Instead I hand out my favorite candy…things like Kit Kat, Snickers, Smarties and Skittles.  I wonder what the kids think of me.

What is your favorite Halloween candy?

  1. Yes I remember the fear that came with trick or treating very well. There were always thoughts of razor blades or poisoned candy. But it’s better safe than sorry. My favorite candy was Twix. :]
