What are you handing out to the Trick-or-Treaters this Halloween? Johnnycakes and I must get a million trick-or-treaters since we live in the city, so we have to be conscious of what kind of candy we buy. Otherwise, we would end up spending a small fortune and we would run out of candy early, leaving many little witches, fairy princesses and warrior ninjas without candy.
I bought the candy last minute this year so I was subject to highway robbery-type prices downtown. I set my budget at $20 since all I had in my wallet was a $20 bill. I basically bought whatever I thought gave me the biggest bang for my buck. This meant that all the goodies, such as Kit Kat, Snickers, Twix and Baby Ruths ,were out of the equation.
We did, however, end up with Swedish Fish, Sour Patch Kids, giant Tootsie Rolls, Dum Dum lollipops, Whoppers, fun size Hershey bars and Almond Joys and Starburst. I felt that these selections were the most economical compared to the other candy available at the store.
I think it's a pretty well-rounded offering. Johnnycakes said I should be embarrassed of the cheap candy I am giving away. What do you think? Are we the boring or cheap house on the block?
