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...

I have bags of Tootsie products hidden from my hubby. Am the official census taker on my block -- 500 last year! Next block over gets over 1000 kids. Good thing tootsie is both cheap and gluten-free!

500-1000 kids...holycraponacracker! :blink: ...are they shipping them in?  :lol:

 

better stock up, babes!

 

although honestly, in the neighborhood I grew up in in Boston, there were tons of us roaming blocks and blocks and even going

home to dump and reload. 

 

hmmm...I suddenly want a tootsie roll............

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:

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!!

Our church does a trunk or treat. I had honestly never heard of such a thing growing up, and all I can think now is how hilarious (and kind of twisted) it is that we teach our kids to never get in a car with a stranger for candy... but it's cool to go to a parking lot full of cars with strangers with candy. :blink: Kind of mixed messages, just sayin.

 

MY MIL does the Halloween candy thing here so we don't get to. Which kind of sucks for the kids because she bought plain M&M's this year. Ewwwww!

 

And a correction on your list there, Andes are fine. I've known this since between my diagnosis and going gluten free since it was the most important candy to check.

I used to get dressed up and meet the kids at the door. Now, I leave the lights off. Just too many kids, and FAR too many BIG kids - older teenagers. If a seventeen-year-old kid thinks he needs to go trick or treating, I think his parents should be notified. Yes, I am a Halloween scrooge.

 

But if I DID do Halloween, I think I'd give them...LIVER AND ONIONS! :o

You're hilarious! I used my kids when they were little as an excuse to dress up and take them out and steal about 75% of their candy. :ph34r: It wasn't just that I was young either, I'd do it still now if I had kids. They just don't need all that candy. I mean come on... how much candy does a 2 year old really need? My mom stole my candy until I got wise and started hiding it all in my bedroom.

 

My husband doesn't like Halloween, it's my favorite holiday. We compromise by not celebrating. In exchange, he doesn't play with fireworks on the 4th. What can I say, I like a man with 10 fingers.

LOL :lol:

 

We only get about 70 kids, so this year I'm giving out juice boxes and cans of cheap pop. The price is close to the same and I don't have to worry about kids with allergies. If I run out, we redistribute our boys' candy once they are home. My kids trade in most of their candy for a toy (this year is pokemon cards) which works out well since all my kids are gluten-free, and one is also dairy and nut free.

    • Re. gorilla munch - Made with corn, says gluten free on the box, I don't know why it wouldn't be. It's quite yummy. Corn pops and Post golden crisp used to be my favorites, before celiac.
    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
    • Hey guys!  I have been suffering from NCGS for almost a year, and have recently been diagnosed with IBS.  Although I was finally getting used to the gluten free routine, this has been really hard to get used to.  I'm currently having a major flare, so I'm off pretty much all fodmaps (although mainly beans, dairy, nuts, and gluten). Additionally, my stomach can't handle more than a 1/2 cup portion per meal, and even then, I'll occasionally have pain after eating.  Does anybody have simple, fast meals that they could share? As if this isn't restrictive enough, I'm also allergic to eggs, so I'm pretty much living off smoothies, rice, and allergy free chicken sandwiches.  I know this is pretty restrictive, but I thought that if anybody could help, it would be you guys.  Thanks!  Claire 
    • Great advice everyone! So the envirokids gorillla munch by natures path is safe?. As for cinnamon Chex is that ok too? 
    • Alright, so I'm 3 months into being gluten free, And in terms of how I feel, the "best fit" line on the graph would be a very slow incline, which is good, but day to day, I would mark as all over the place. I don't understand. I pretty much do the same things every day, and eat the same things every day at around the same times, even in the same order. I cook all my own food and am super careful about CC. I even have my own pans, cutting boards, even my own sponge for washing my own aforementioned kitchen supplies. What I eat is very limited. I don't even do dairy, grains, or added sugar. (for now) Yesterday I actually felt okay. The brain fog was fairly thin, I felt more based in reality, rather than like I was in the matrix, on drugs, or in a dream. Today I'm back in the matrix again. I can't think, I have anxiety, I'm overly emotional, short fused, angry, and scared of my own shadow. This up and down for no apparent reason stuff seems to be the norm for me. Is this unheard of or somewhat common? It seems like how I feel is completely out of my control, and the disease just does whatever it wants. I know 3 months isn't that long in the usual recovery time frame, but I want to get off this ride. I just need to know if it's normal to be so up and down day to day during the recovery, or if I should give in to my assumed unfounded panic attacks and be worried. As a side note, I'd much rather have the typical gastro issues usually associated with celiac. Blowing chunks and crapping my pants constantly would be way easier for me to deal with than all the neurological problems mine manifested as. Ugh.
