You’re red faced and sweating but the neighbors gave in to your one-minute-after trick-or-treating officially ended handful into your pillowcase. You’re feeling on top of the world right now and ready to unload your loot on the kitchen table. You rip off your sweatshirt and mask as your mom pushes a bottle of water in your face yelling, “drink!” You look up giving your mom one of those, ‘leave me alone mom’ looks as you grab the ends of your pillowcase and dump it upside down. You wish you could record that wonderful sound of candy cascading onto the table…it was a hard two hours of running, waiting your turn on the steps and managing to say “trick-or-treat” in between breaths. As soon as the candy is out you ditch the bag and you’re pretty sure your mom will yell at you about that in about 3 seconds but you don’t care. You rummage your hands through the mounds of goodies – kit kats, nerds, lemon heads, air heads, tootsie rolls, oh my!! And just when your exuberant smile feels like its stretching beyond your ears as you make piles of your favorite candy you see it. IT! Is that what you think it is?! “No way” you yell but it’s too late it’s there, the horrific, awful and dreaded handouts. Why would someone do this?!
Don’t be the reason why a trick-or-treater has a meltdown at the end of the night. Read what the 18 most terrible things to get while trick-or-treating are and if you’re one of those people who give any of these things out I hope that my story will inspire you to go buy some Reese’s cups.
And in case you’ve never seen this before, Jimmy Kimmel does a hilarious bit on parents telling their kids they’ve eaten their Halloween candy. Don’t miss this, your abs will appreciate it.
