This list is for the US, it may differ in other countries, even Canada. It can't possibly include every candy being made, but it has a lot of them!

P.S. I eat the tootsie rolls they have by the door when I leave after my work out at Planet Fitness. -_-

Thanks for the candy list nice lady!   :D

 

One treat that kids here seem to really like is roasted, salted peanuts in the shell.  I got several big bags of them one year and most of the kids wanted them.  Seems like a good treat to me since it is low sugar and all that.  They are somewhat less expensive than sugary chocolate which is nice.

Oh, I hadn't thot of dental floss IH!  Those kids really need some proper dental hygiene after all.  Great idea! :D  Actually, my sister suggested giving them kale.  Eww!  Even I am not that low...  or am I?

 

Maybe herbal tea bags would be good...

Halloween is truly magical around here.  Neighbors decorate their homes and kids come into our neighborhood for three reasons: 1) homes are "city" plots, so more homes per block -- perfect for greedy kids, 2) hills, we're just a the base of some major hills, and 3) we have sidewalks.  Part of our city is "country" so it's not super safe to walk the streets.

 

We've been here a long time.  The only year the count went down was after 9-11.  We have a big Halloween party right out in the front yard.  Everyone hangs outside.  It's crowded on the sidewalk but it's fun seeing friends, neighbors and family while "trick or treating".  The kids just stream up our front walkway to our "scary porch".   We eat lots of chili and canvas returning kids bags for the "good" candy.  Alas, I can only eat my candy, but that's okay!  

 

Only a week to go! :)

That sounds like a blast!!!! ENJOY!!!

 

The last time I got to do something like that with the neighborhood peeps was about 17 years ago (when I lived in the city)

 

I was dressed as Elvira and gave out candy, then went to a party. whoohoo that was fun....

 

When I moved to a house on a dirt road on 7 acres,  no one came up that long drive. 

 

Anyhoo, I have decided to hold off buying the goodies until the day before.

 

Why, you may all wonder? because I have zero restraint. zip. none. nada.

Another great idea IH, boiled eggs!  Thanks! :)

 

I got mini boxes of raisins one time.  Those might be good too.

 

RE: buying ahead of time.  You do know it is important to test the goods out before distributing to minors right?  Somebody has to do it!

When I was of trick-or-treating age the big worry of the time was old men putting razor blades in apples :ph34r:   That's just mean.  I lived in a very large city and would drop a full pillowcase of candy and home and go out for another one.  We were Candy Warriors!!!  These days there are no children who live in the immediate area so I turn out the lights and eat all the candy myself :lol:

.  You do know it is important to test the goods out before distributing to minors right?  Somebody has to do it!

 

Okay, did you call my hubs last night?  because he has already pitched this plea.  :lol:

My reply was one night of test- driving the candy for the kids is enough.

Honestly, if I were to get it now, there wouldn't be any left come 10/31. I am a grazer--you know what that means, right...I graze the shelves in the fridge and the cupboards....and if I find it, I sample. not once, not twice.....I'm just a giant sweet tooth that lacks discipline..

Same here. We used pillowcases and my Dad had to check everything to look out for the razor blades.

 

What kind of nutjob does that anyway?  geesh.

I so love that list!  It's perfect for my little celiacs to know what they can and can not eat.

 

We are going to a Trunk of Treat at our elementary school tonight and I alpha'd the list of the treats my kids would actually like.  I'm printing off a copy for myself and my husband (since they know they need permission from either of us to eat anything).  I took some things off the YES side because 1. we don't like those, 2. it's too hard to know if they were "rebagged" or 3. too many varieties to think about while out and about.

 

Anyway, here it is in case anybody else wants to copy/paste/print your own copy.

 

Happy Halloween!!

Undiagnosed, but I'm positive that I'm the genetic link to celiac for my kids.  Gluten Free in solidarity of my girls!

Kid 1 (8 y/o girl) - DX celiac via blood in 9/2013 (age 7.5).  Negative biopsy in 10/2013.

Kid 2 (4 y/o boy) - DX as "latent celiac" via blood in 9/2013 (age 3.5).  Negative biopsy in 10/2013.  DX with gastritis.

Kid 3 (2 y/o girl) - DX celiac via blood in 8/2013 (age 1.5) and 9/2013.
