The Hillary mention is at the end…!
Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I was sick and my grandparents were in town, but it is good to be back. Just in time for Halloween! While Trick or Treating around 3 whole blocks, I snatched 147 pieces of candy. 147 pieces of sweets means around 60 houses visited, which also means that I must have noticed a lot of different things about the houses.
I usually categorize how you get your candy into three groups. Number 1: No one is home, but the owners leave a bowl out. Number 2: The owner passes out candy his/her way. Number 3: You get to choose your piece of candy, but the owner is still watching. The majority (45-50) of the houses I went to did number 3 as their method. This trick is great because you get a candy of your choice, but you don’t go crazy. Only on rare occasions did the owner pass out the candy or leave a bowl out. When the owner leaves the bowl out,Trick or Treaters take way too much. When they pass out candy, Trick or Treaters don’t get their favorite picks. Overall, I enjoyed my candy choices.
In terms of quantity and quality, each house gave about 3 pieces of candy on average and most of the candy was regular chocolate/vanilla/caramel/ peanut butter/ mint candies such as Twix, Snickers, Milky Way, Kit Kat, Reeces Pieces, Crunch, M&M, etc. I prefer these types of candies better than fruity ones such as Swedish Fish, Sour Patch Kids, Dum Dums, Mike and Ike, Skittles, etc. My mom likes Heath Bars, my dad loves Kit Kats, and my sister savors Twix. Personally, I will take anything because candy is candy. Since I received such a large variety of treats, I think that I pleased nearly everyone in my family.
Are you more of a fruity candy lover or a non fruity candy lover? Here are some of the pictures I have from Halloween:
