Do you or your kids have any special costumes in the works? My older daughter is going to be Skulduggery Pleasant, and my younger daughter is going to be a zombie bride. Should be fun!
One of their favorite things to do, which I also adored as a child, is to dump out their candy bags when the trick-or-treating is through, and sort through their loot. It is fun to see which candy they prize and which they could care less about. We certainly have different tastes! Although I'd have to say that I'm way pickier than they are. Certain things simply aren't worth the calories.
I wasn't that picky as a kid, though, but I do remember being really disappointed to get MaryJanes and Mounds. Oh, and those marshmallow peanut-shaped things. One of my neighbors used to cut up Hershey bars, right through the wrapper, and hand out small pieces of them, which we thought was hopelessly lame. Another neighbor used to make candy apples on sticks, which were delicious. My favorite candies were just classic chocolate - yum! - and peanut butter cups.
What about you? Did you have favorite candy? Or was there a kind that you hated? I'd love to hear about it!
