How much candy did you buy to pass out?

We bought 2 bags of 50 pieces, but we've probably eat...15 pieces?  So I feel like 35 pieces isn't that much...

How many kids did you who already had trick or treat see?  How many kids do you expect to see if you haven't had trick or treat yet?

Our trick or treat is Saturday from 6-8 (doesn't that seem late at night for a Saturday for kids to be walking around with all of the drunken halloween parties?)

4-6 seems more kid-appropriate, but I guess they wanted it to be dark out?

Re: How much candy did you buy to pass out?

  • I can't find what time our trick or treating is, but I'm buying a ton of candy. Between us, kids, and our halloween party, it will be gone. I would guess 150 pieces or so.
  • I usually buy 5-10 bags. Mostly snickers. Cuz I secretly hope no one comes and I can keep it all for me me me me. I do freeze leftovers. Seriously, frozen snickers mini bars in summer rocks. 

    My feeling is trick or treating is for little kids. So about 8:30 I turn my lights off- because pretty much just the jr high and high schoolers are out then and sorry, but your dad's army coat does not equal costume. Get a job. LOL

  • I bought two little bags, but once I realized that we live in BFE and we'll be at a party that night, I decided to eat most of the candy. Bad, bad idea!
  • They're talking about trick-or-treating in the Posse parking lot tomorrow, and I'm thinking about parking there for the game and handing out candy. If that's the case, I'll get two big bags - and eat what's left. :)

  • No one trick or treats on my street. I did buy candy for the security guard at work to hand out. After the  purchase I said i am not going to be buying the candy anymore. I think  i got too much. We have 622 piece plus and additional 5 lbs. Granted we probably have around 1200 people that live here. 
  • none, we won't be home.

    though i did buy a bag of kit-kats for us and to put in the candy dish at work.

  • Yeah, we bought none.  We don't get any tot-ers, and I don't think either of us will be home anyway.

    And seriously, there are neighborhoods with set times for the activity?  really?  So strange.

  • none to pass out, we won't be home.  did buy one bag of the miniatures for us to enjoy though ;)

    Hmm...was there never a set time for you to trick or treat?  how did people know to have candy for you?

    I guess I never thought that was weird?

     Maybe the set time is a Cincinnati thing. We always had a set time. I think it makes it easier on the parents.  This year it is 6 - 8

  • One box of mini Doritos.  I think there are 75 bags in the box.  Not sure if we will get to pass them out today.

    Today I also brought in a little bag of candy for the women who report to me.

    March 09 Siggy Challenge image Melting Snow... because it means that spring is actually on the way and it's not snowing or cold.
  • I have 250 pieces of candy & 144 superballs.  I'm told that in this neighborhood we normally get 50 kids on a school night, but on a Saturday I'm figuring double.  So I'll do a candy & ball for each kid except the littles (choking hazard) until I run out of balls, then 2 pieces of candy for the rest.  I also have a book of coupons for Jr. Frosty's from Wendy's *just in case*.
  • We never had set times.  It was any time after school until 9 p.m.  The cops come around at 9 and make people go home.  But now that it's on a Saturday, "after school" isn't in effect.
  • We go to my parent's house because they have tons of kids to stop by and we live in an apartment.

    We bought over 300 pieces.  We ran out again......

    We don't do set times. They usually start around dusk and just keep going and going and going.
