The boys came home from trick-or-treating with buckets overflowing with goodies. There is lots of chocolate, fruit candies, sour candies, etc. But, I found a few really strange “treats” in the stash:
- sugarless hard candy
- granola bar
- a few pieces of that nasty bulk Brach candy from the grocery store
- packet of green Nestea, made with Splenda
… and the all-time strangest thing: a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Huh? Wild Thing actually chose that one from the goody bin in front of a neighbor’s house. I don’t know what bothers me more: that someone put this out as a treat or that my kid was actually dumb enough to take it. Things that make you go “hmmm’.
Despite the mountains of chocolate here, I find I’m raiding their buckets mostly for those Sweet Tarts that are packaged to look like Smarties. I liked Smarties a lot, but I love Sweet Tarts.
What’s your favorite Halloween candy?
