My yearly warning about Halloween candy….

This is a friendly warning, and it’s not about all of the horrors and dangers and blah blah blah about sugar. No, it’s a warning to steer clear of the  following candies in your candy bowl. These could earn you trees filled with t.p., and eggs on your house. Consider yourself warned…

1. Hard candies…for the love of everything unholy, please don’t kid yourself. No one, including bank patrons want these.

2. Dum Dums, or any generic lollipops: see above

3. Boston Baked Beans: unless your trick or treaters are 90+ years old, please refrain from showering your gobblins with these, unless you want a hail of them returned at your door.

4. Sugar Daddys: I can’t believe these are still made. In fact I think they aren’t still making them and these are the same ones from 1972…unless they come with a Bobby Sherman lunch box, I’m not interested.

5. Necco Wafers: enough said

Seriously friends, follow the “Golden Rule” of candy giving and only give onto others as you would want given to you. Remember, it’s for the children (and parents).

  1. appreciate the warning, but would you please send me all of your butterscotch buttons, peanut butter kisses (aka Halloween taffy), Necco Wafers (don’t care whose lunchbox they came from), and Sugar Daddys. Funny how folks have different palates. You can have my York Peppermint Patties and Snickers bars.

  2. You should chat with your niece about butterscotch buttons. Necco wafers? The chocolate ones? Really? How did you ever get your kids loose teeth out without Sugar Daddys?

  3. Though I am giving out York Peppermint Patties… if there are any left in the bowl by tomorrow, I do love a peanut butter kiss or two or the bag. It is the salty-sweet of the retro candy world!
