It probably goes without saying that I love candy and that Halloween has always been my favorite holiday (but I guess it’s not REALLY a holiday). I unboxed and prepped the Halloween candies this evening, so we are ready! There are 90 full-size candies, so after 90 kids (or maybe fewer, since some of the candies might need to be “tested” before the actual holiday), that’s it! Lights out!
I remember roaming the streets of NW Portland with a pillowcase. It was always such a thrill to feel the thunk of the candy hitting the bottom of the sack. I remember one house gave out pennies, which I actually thought was rather cool (how naive was I!). Once home, my brother and I would compare our bounties and arrange the candies by category: chocolate, hard candies, icky ones. I think my favorites were M&Ms and Hershey’s bars, but I don’t really remember. Kids nowadays seem to go for the sour or gummi candies. What were your favorites?
