Halloween candy

I bought my Halloween candy today, and I was just wondering what kind of candy do you give out? I bought two bags of Nestle assortment at BJ's. It has Nestle Crunch, Butterfinger, and Baby Ruth. What a deal, the bag had 135 pieces of candy for $11.99, and I had two coupons for $2.50 off each bag. We get a lot of trick or treaters, sometimes close to 100 kids!

There's loads of Halloween treats out that I'd love to try but I'm holding off a few weeks. Trying and failing to shift a few pounds first. Thinking of a Halloween night blow out though.

Usually it's suckers, Tootsie Rolls, Smarties, Hershey Bars, Peanut Butter Cups, KitKats, and mini pretzels, but it varies year to year. I think we might give out microwave popcorn, and little trinkets. Not sure yet.

We typically, go through about 25-30 lbs of candy on Halloween night, (I think I'm guilty for eating a pound of it myself; lol...) and it is usuall an assortment that we sort of make ourselves with it being heavy on the chocolate side. It's an assortment of Hershey, Mars, Nestle, Tootsie Rolls, some hard candies, Sweet Tarts, etc... But lots and lots of chocolate....

I know! It's been like that every year since we lived there at the house (14 years). One year, we ran out, ran out of whatever we could find in the pantries and so, I ran up to the local rite aid and bought whatever I could get my hands on/ what they had left....

I will have to look again what I bought, but I know it was Reese's & induvidual twizzlers & I think the other 2 chocolates were Twix & Kit Kat! So far I have kept my fingers OUT of it!
