Ha! Suck it, ghetto motherfuckers and your single tootsie rolls!

Costco has a smokin' deal on big bags of full size, figured what the heck, give it a shot this year. Will be curious to see whether kids get excited or if they'll feel entitled.

You should print up your own "Obama bucks" to give them.

Will they broadcast an announcement on the Ghetto Radio Network listing the addresses of the full size candy houses?

Last year we had over 100 trick or treaters. I kept count since it was a new neighborhood. I should check last year's thread to see the official number, can't remember anymore.

There was always this old lady that gave away full cans of pringles. This lady was scary as fuck and you had to go inside to get them. We would always climb all over each other to get out after we got the goods.

I did this our first year in our new house. We had 1 kid stop by. That's right, 1. Apparently Halloween isn't a thing in my town. That kid got as much as he wanted, since it was about 2100 by then. He racked up. I told him to take as much as he wanted. He looked at me like I was a god. I felt pretty good, since he was wearing a pretty shabby costume, and it was obvious his family didn't have a lot of money. Hope he enjoyed it.

People still trick or treat? Last year I think about 10 kids showed up at the door and I got to enjoy a LOT of leftover candy. About 10 years ago you'd have 50-100 kids show up.

Never had anyone stop by. And I live in town.

New place this year though. So maybe it will be different.

My parents have been doing that for a couple years now. I was over there one year and the excitement from the kid's when they realized they were getting full sized candy bars was great.

When we are ready to turn the porch light off we always give the last kid whatever is left in the bowl. Usually it is a sizeable amount and they act like they just won the lottery.

Good on you. Good for the kids.

I remembered all the houses that had good stuff when I was a kid.

There was an old lady in one house that would give away change. Quarters, dimes and such (ETA back then that was a lot). That was fun. Stuck in my head. Sometimes candied apples. Good times. Halloween was a magical time like Christmas.

We are giving out full size candy bars... If any kids show up. We had 1 last year.

I have a kid in y neighborhood in a wheelchair who usually makes it around near the end of the evening's festivities............he doesnt ask anyone to go to the door for him, but wheels himself up the driveway and to the door. I usually reserve some really good ones for him for that kind of effort

Did you accidentally a whole one or was there some sort of division by zero involved? Perhaps the 10th one fell off a treadmill into some bean filled chili.

I remember in college at one of our houses we got a bag of candy just in case any parents let their kids come by. It was a shitty house and we often had beer cans on our shitty coffee table and couch on the front porch.

Those little bastards showed up in droves, we had to do like 3 emergency candy runs. I was giving out cup o noodles and packs of trident gum to keep the peace.

+1 - There was a story in the Seattle Times a couple years ago about how kids (or parents) use the interwebs to target high income neighborhoods for better trick or treating . . . .

By the way, I tried giving away sodas last year, and the majority of kids said they weren't allowed to drink it (even if their parents were nowhere in sight) . Good kids, but sheesh!

Hahah! Reminds me of several years ago, we took the kids trick or treating to a friend of the wife's. She got a look of horror on her face and said "hang on..." She came back about a minute and a half later with an Easter egg coloring kit and a package of microwave popcorn in one hand and her car keys in the other. She had completely spaced that it was Halloween and we were the first to stop at her house.

Heheh, I suppose If I wanted to be a bastard since it's a school night, I could give out Red Bulls to go with the candy bars.

We used to walk 7 blocks over to get to the house that gave out full size candy bars every year.

The fact that I remember this decades later is an indicator of the legendary status you will gain on Thursday.

The most popular one in my old neighborhood was the couple that put loose change (mostly pennies) in a huge punch bowl. You could get one handfull. That was a huge deal when a penny really bought something.

If I lived in town I would make a big wheel the kids had to spin, like Wheel of Fortune. There would be a little banrupt sized sliver that would get you an apple or something crappy, and various other cady prizes.

The grand prize would be like a whole god damn case of hersey bars.

I haven't had a trick or treater in the 6 years I have lived here though, and if I did the poor little bastard would probably get run off the property by the dog.

My parents used to give out pencils and little erasers. Lamest house in the city.

I've since then converted them to give out full sized candy bars and Caprisuns.

She probably gave them away just to get kids to come to her door.
I may be reading things into it, but it sounds to me like she was lonely.
