Whose Got the Best Candy?
Every year at Halloween I always here the kids discussing which house they are going to first and whose got the best candy. Silly me I always thought to a kid any candy was the "best" candy. But boy was I wrong. After following my daughter and one of her friends around a neighborhood last year for Halloween I learned a thing or two. There are houses that give out small amounts of candy like a single piece of bubble gum, and there are other houses that give out bigger treats like a handful of all sorts of candy. Heck we even went to one house that had treats for us adults. I was quite impressed at this point and began to understand the strategic planning that went into their evening. It also gave me a little more insight into how I should plan my Halloween candy shopping for this year. I decided that I was going to not only do my usual name brand candies like M&M's but also do some of the smaller candies so I could give kids a handful of treats. You know be one of those "Best Candy" houses. And I even picked up some fun Pumpkin shaped tins filled with mints for the adults that actually come up to the door with the kids. I'm all about being the fun place to come for Halloween. It's always neat seeing the kids in their costumes and hearing how excited they are when you give them some treats.
You can find these sweet treats and lots of others in the Halloween section of the Oriental Trading website.
