The 10 Most Disappointing Treats for Trick-or-Treaters - Ed Levine Eats on Yahoo! Food
I dunno who this person is that came up with this list, but I wholeheartedly DISagree on a number of them. Here's the list of what not to give on Halloween, according to this yutz.
Smarties and Necco Wafers
Dum Dum Lollipops
Miscellaneous, Wrapped Hard Candies
OK, to me, nothing SAYS Halloween like Neccos or Smarties, Dum Dums, Tootsie Rolls, Laffy Taffy or fun sized candy bars. In fact the only time I ever GOT Dum Dums, Necco Wafers or Laffy Taffy (banana - mmmm) was on Halloween. Of course he doesn't tell us what we SHOULD give out.
I mean should we be handing out giant sized Hershey Bars? Not many people can afford to do that. Or Godiva Chocolates? I mean come on, what kid that's trick or treat aged complains about the candy they get on Halloween? Even if they do, you know they'll eat it anyway!
