This one is for the kid in all of us.
The list is far too long.
- Those various “old person” hard candies.
Tiny bags of chips and mini chocolate bars!
- Raisins. What kind of child wants a healthy treat?
- McDonald’s coupons for ridiculously small portions.
- Toothbrushes. Seriously?
And finally, the most polarizing of them all: candy corn! Some kids, like my daughter, love this stuff, but Google “crappy Halloween candy” and it makes every list, every year.
When you’re a kid, trudging from door-to-door on a cold night, in a hot costume, these are the last things you want to see!
Nonetheless, they still wind up in distribution every year, only to be discarded November 1st, the same day the people who gave them out are cleaning the eggs off their windows.
