10 Things Kids Don’t Want in Their Treat Bags

If you are like me, you haven’t yet bought your candy for fear that you might eat a goodly portion of it before Friday night. So, you have no excuses! Do not be one of “those houses!”

And we ALL know who they are.

If you have a health agenda, let me give you a heads up by saying that Halloween night is not the right time to push it on the neighborhood kids. Otherwise, they might get an agenda of their own that involves massive amounts of toilet paper.

Fruit-flavored hard candies/Butterscotch hard candies
Does anybody like these? Did they ever? Why are they still being made? I don’t know anyone that likes this stuff other than elderly people. Certainly no six year olds I’ve ever come into contact with.

Jawbreakers fall into the same category as the candies above, but with even less flavor and the potential for dental harm. There simply is no payoff here.

Red Hots
These are, at best, breath-fresheners, not real candy.

Necco Wafers
Perhaps at one time back in the day when processed sugar was a luxury, these were considered good. Times change, and nowadays sidewalk chalk probably tastes better.

Here’s Damon Weaver of Canal Point Elementary School in Palm Beach County, Florida, interviewing Vice Presidential Hopeful Joe Biden on what the Vice Presidency is all about. Frankly, one of the best interviews so far in the race, so congratulations, Damon!

And Joe.
