Old Oct 14th, 2011, 01:53 PM        Halloween Candy...the best, the worst.
I used to put together fun little baggies, or what I thought might be construed as fun little baggies, with halloween doodads and various types of candy. Then we got like 5 kids and I ended up dumping the remaining 30-some bags into the teenage neighbor kid's pillowcase. That's why this year I said "fuck it" and just got a variety pack of full-size candy bars.

The best halloween candy I ever got was one of those giant size fundraiser caramel bars, with the good buttery caramel that you don't see around anymore. That was the same house I said something about before, where the woman put out a whole box with a sign that said "TAKE ONE" and then watched for the kid who inevitably grabbed more and scared the shit out of him.

I've got a several-way tie for worst. One was the old man who threw pennies at us and told us to get our own fuckin' candy. I also lived between a cardiologist and a dentist...nothing says Halloween like cholesterol charts, toothbrushes and disclosing tablets

How about you?

I always loved getting Sweet Tarts and little boxes of Nerds candy. That was so awesome. What I couldn't stand, though, was those little caramel candy things that were wrapped in the dull black and orange wrappers. I still can't bare to look at them. They always seemed like most inconsiderate candy to me.

I always felt disappointed if I didn't get any of those black and orange things.

The black and orange things are terrible, but I really did get disappointed if I didn't get a few also.

As for best, snickers. Back when I lived in a really rich neighborhood, everyone gave out full size pieces of candy and it was nice.

Worst is pennies. I didn't mind the tooth candy too much because it was kinda cool to see all my plaque.

I still wonder what people thought a couple of years back when I was handing out the full-size boxes of Frankenberry. Probably that I was nuts.

I think I mentioned it in an older version of a "halloween candy" thread, but I used to make wreaths of those orange and black things and sell them at the hospital where I worked. People actually paid like $45 for them, and they weighed almost 10 lbs. But I thought they were peanut butter, not caramel.

I always hated getting salt water taffy pieces in my bag. Only old people eat taffy, not kids.

As for the best, one year a lady was giving out chocolate oatmeal drop cookies. She put peanuts and peanut butter in them. They were so damn good that even till this day when I make some I try to copy what she did.

I also always liked getting apples even though they aren't candy.

Did anyone else take their candy to be x-rayed? That was big in a Milwaukee suburb I lived in for a while. You'd go after trick or treating (which was always on a Saturday afternoon, NEVER real Halloween) and they'd have you dump your candy on the x-ray table.

I'm pretty sure it was one of the biggest wastes of medical resources around. No one ever had anything interesting, although there were always rumors about razorblades in apples and stuff. One girl on my bus knew someone who knew someone who knew someone who found a tube covered in white powder in a fun-size Snickers bar. Then again, it was the same girl who kicked her lawnmower when it wouldn't go uphill and lost three toes, so you know.

The best candy I ever got was a full-size fun dip.
The worst "candy" was a caramel apple coated in something white.
Maybe it was flour, maybe every kid in the neighborhood stuck the stupid (and still sticky) apples in his mailbox.

It is, but the sticks aren't always vanilla now. It's been "Willy Wonka"-appropriated. Now the sticks have basically the same flavor as what you're dipping them in. I don't know what the point of that is.

When I was a kid I loved the vanilla dipping things. I didn't have much use for the powder other than trying to make some ersatz piss-poor kool-aid with it.

I think I asked you to make me one of those last year or the year before. You were pretty sore about it.

I don't remember why I would be sore about it...it's just a lot of work and takes one hell of a long time to make/ship. I can do it, if you're prepared to pay for it.

I liked it when I got really random treats -- animal crackers, the new testament, an apple, a whistle, pokemon cards, etc. useless but unexpected and thus, memorable! the only candy that used to really piss me off was banana laffy taffy.

I used to love getting those tiny boxes of candy that looked like thin pieces of chalk. Also, King-Size stuff.

I never really got shitty stuff like apples and Necco wafers (which I didn't mind when I did). I don't like Good & Plenty, though, which I remember getting a lot of. My dad loved them though.
