Which Halloween candies do you keep, and which do you trade?

Every child knows what to do after trick-or-treating….make piles of similar candies, and then let the trading begin!

Here’s my list of keepers vs. traders (this is just my personal preferences, no judgement here)

Keepers: 100,000 Grand Bars, Reeses cups, m&m’s, Milky Way, Hershey bars, Twizzlers, Kit Cat, fat Tootsie Rolls, Mounds, Chocolate or Raspberry Tootsie Pops, Heath, Milk Duds, and Junior Mints.

Traders: Nestle and Nestle Crunch, Butterfinger, Smarties, Sweet Tarts, Dum Dums and any lollipops, Snickers(I don’t like peanuts), 3 Musketeers, Peanut m&m’s (see Snickers), Mr. Goodbar, Twix, Jolly Ranchers, thin or small Tootsie Rolls, Dots, Almond Joy.

So, Happy Halloween, and here’s hoping that you get lots of treats!

  1. I am bit of a chocolaholic so I would trade almost any candy for chocolate when I would go out trick-or-treating. I would trade Rockets & Candy Necklaces for Snickers or Mars bars, even trade a Sour Key for a Reeses Pieces Cup or a KitKat bar. The day after Halloween night usually went something like this:

    ME: Eeewwww, licorice! Anyone want a Twizzlers and for some M&M’s?
    STEVEN DENNIS: I’ll take it! But I only have Smarties…
    *after snatching the box of Smarties from his hand, I shout…*
    ME: DEAL!

  2. Butterfinger as a Trader–what? I will so trade you all of your butterfingers for all of my tootsie pops or hershey bars (unless they are Special Dark, then I hoard). Great lists:-)
