In all my years of Trick-or-Treating, I can say that this is a pretty accurate list.

Definately accurate. I used to like getting peanuts, that`s right, like what they sell at grocery stores.

I always kept a rubber band in my pocket so i could shoot those nasty black and orange Mary Janes at other kids. It was like eating peanut butter flavored epoxy. At my neighborhood here`s always one house whose decorations are a little TOO real, one house that gives out hot mulled cider (Mmm!), one house that gave loads of semi-generic but still pretty good chocolates, and one house that just gives out random crap. I got a bag of microwaveable popcorn and some Pop-Tarts from one house. Also, candy corn is awesome.

That list was so accurate, and made me so nostalgic for halloweens as a kid. talk about fond memories. i cant wait to have a kid so i can take them trick or treating and steal some of their candy lol. btw, candy corn is definitely the WORST, with tootsie rolls coming in second. somehow i always got WAY more tootsie rolls in my bag than anything else, and i was always discouraged to see the damn things. i tried giving them to anyone who would take them lol. tiny bags of M&Ms, bottlecaps, and sweetarts were always some of the best and big faves with me.

How is an apple worse than a penny? At least you can do something with the apple... and a toothbrush is just an insult.

I love candy corn. >_>

My house already has those bags of chips, so getting them for Halloween is just redundant. Though I have to agree that full size is the BEST.

Halloween 2003- me and 5 of my friends were trick or treating. One of them says
"Oh this house is really good. I`ve been there before."
It has the perfect setting. An authentic gravestone on the front lawn saying `R.I.P` and a tape repeating the the same thunder clap and evil laugh. An middle aged woman answers the door, drops a plastic bag in my stash of treats. We thank her and walk off. We get to the end of the road and sit on a bench to discuss what treats we had and i came to the bag the woman had gave us. i opened it to discover a carrot.

A freakin` carrot. On halloween.

Thanks a lot b***h.

The worst for me was some old bag handing out pamphlets saying that Halloween was evil and against God`s will and crap. If you don`t want to take part in Halloween that`s fine, but don`t try to ruin kids fun by giving them a Bible lecture....

There used to be this guy when I was younger who would always give out cans of pop on Halloween. My brother LOVED Coke, so he would try and go to that same house a few times per night. Once with the full costume (hood, and a mask), then once without the hood, then again without the mask, and then once more with no hood and no mask. That way the guy wouldn`t notice it was the same person. XD
There was also this women who was a math teacher, and made you answer a math question before giving you candy. =______=

this is pretty accurate, but something that isn`t on the worst list is hard candy. Particularly these little round blue candies that taste like Listerine... Only old people hand those out and its friggin disgusting.

I was expecting those peanut marshmallow nasties to be on the worst list. Those things are like rocks.

My uncle gives out full-sized candy bars every year. I believe his reasoning is he "doesn`t wanna give out pooty little pieces. You gotta go for the real deal!" He`s VERY popular in his neighborhood, lol.

When I was younger we had an old woman in my neighborhood who gave out both full sized candy bars AND cans of soda.

There was also a couple that would simply put out a bowl full of candy with a note that said "please take only one". Yeah...right...

Lol full sized candybars, its true, the big ones are allways better. I don`t go trick-or-treating anymore because were too old but on year, me and my friend got 5p for us to share..Lame. Thats 2.5p each. And one Christmas we were carol singing when a lady came to the door like, *with sad face* ``were not celebrating christmas this year`` I was like =O Turns out her son just got sent down...

Back when I was a kid, there was this lady who set up a Trick-Or-Treat Pitstop thing on the streetcorner. She had lawn chairs and a giant cooler of bottled water set out so the hardcore trick-or-treaters could rest after their 7th time around the neighborhood. We had a lot of hills. It was a great idea.

I got a homemade popcorn ball in my bag once. My dad told me I had to hand it over in case there was razors or poison in it. That butthole just ate it as soon as I gave it to him.

Yes SM25, when I was a kid we had a neighbor who handed out toothbrushes on Halloween and he was a dentist. He would say things like "Don`t eat too much candy little girl". He gave me the creeps and had wallpaper on his ceiling.

I LOVE suckers. and kind of lollipop I like. I do hate candy corn. And I have never got apples or pennies on Halloween. Never got a toothbrush either. I loved getting bags of chips for Hallowen though. One house gave them out every year. Cape cod chips..so good

My favourite house was of this little old lady who would give out little pumpkin shaped baskets filled to the brim with treats, and if you got there early enough she had a selection of toys you could choose from too. My friends and I would run as fast as we could to get to her house first because she ran out quickly.

i like candy corn too Dr4k. I just really don`t like blow pops. I used to go to a house that gave out candied apples and that was awesome.

The whole candy bar thing was completely accurate though.

I love candy corn! In fact, my partner had to stop me from buying a tub of it last week... *heh*

As for the molasses taffy/halloween kisses... I enjoyed it, but it always stuck to my teeth something fierce.

And I loved getting raisins. In the little packs. I still like dried fruit...

My personal favourite was the one house that would give out a can of pop and one of those bigger bags of chips (NOT big size, but the personal size... not snack size.) AND a full-size chocolate bar...

The best halloween ever was when I was the first kid up to somebody`s house and they gave me one of those gigantic Mr. Big bars that was actually 4 Mr. Big bars in one huge ass package. Awesome.

Somebody mentioned those things in the oragne and black packages. I don`t know what they`re actually called, I just call them molases candies. They`re my favourite.

Candy corn is like.. a slightly flavored piece of candy that smells delicious but the texture feels like your biting into something chalky. I love the smell of them, but I cant stand eating them cause of that texture! Its hard to explain, but I know Brachs keeps bags of them on the shelf all year round. So, if you go to a store..find the candy part that has the small bags of brachs and somewhere youll find candycorn! Unless it doesnt exist in Europe??

no, i would have to replace suckers with mary janes...i never figured out what they were, they tasted and looked like dog crap wrapped up in paper.

apples=fail, but if they were candied/carameled (by your parents or relatives, or trusted neighbors)

and candy corn isn`t so bad, especially if they put it in a small sack with a big handful...like I said, its better than those mary janes

Now an apple injected with poisons and crap, that I can understand!
