Chips for Halloween?

I mean, giving out little bags of chips is a good alternative to candy, isn't it?

DH said it would be moted of us.  Too late, I say, I've already bought 60 little bags of Doritos, FUnyuns, and Cheetos.

  • omg - no way.  Are you guys kidding me? 

    Broken Heart

  • well, it beats not giving anything at all. ?and i personally wouldn't mind a nice bag of cheetos amongst all that sugar.

    but i'm not a trick-or-treater ;)?

  • I am saddened by this.  I totally thought kids would be pumped about getting chips.  When I was a kid, I would have loved it.

    Sad

     Agreed. It's also too bad that the sugar in starchy potato chips rot your teeth just as badly as the sugar in candy. 

    Do you normally have lots of kids come to your door on Halloween? 

  • kids like chips.  It's a nice mix to add in salty to all that sweet.

  • I think it should be okay...I got the same reaction when I brought home animal crackers for trick or treaters...

    I don't know about this.

    Turning off all the lights in the house and not answering the door might actually be better.?

  • i have a mixed bag of reese's goodies to give out as DH informed me "reese's were the best part of trick or treating as a kid." i'm not sure how pumped i would have been to get chips then, but i sure like them now ;)
  • I like kids... just not the ones in my neighborhood.

  • I think it's fine. But my mother was also the mother who gave away apples and toothbrushes for Halloween so.....
  • Funny, I was just about to say, "At least it's not a toothbrush". ;) Maybe you could throw in a dollar along with the chips to make them happy. :) Then you'd be the coolest house on the block.
  • It sounds weird, but I'm not gonna lie, I would have probably been stoked to get Cheetos.

  • I would have eaten them if I were a kid.  i think it's a good idea because it's less sugar at least.
  • Oh and if it makes you feel any better, it's 3pm and I still don't have anything to give out yet.
  • dude, I was never allowed to have chips as a child so I would ahve been super happy to have them during Trick or Treating !!

  • I think it is ok. I would have liked to get chips, I was not much of a candy person when i was a kid
  • I don't know.  I wouldn't be surprised if you get egged.  kids are pretty effed up these days, they want the good stuff.

  • I'm telling it to you straight, D.
    You are going to have disgruntled trick-or-treaters.
    They get chips in their lunches.
    They want candy for Halloween.

    Kids these days are SPOILED! I blame the Lunchables craze.
  • A few years ago, MH thought it would be a great idea to give stickers with the company we worked for's logo on them along with candy.  The next morning we had several stuck to our garage door.  :/

  • I just came back from the bank with $60 in crisp $1 bills.

    I'm sad. 

    And now I have 60 bags of chips to eat.

     

  • I honestly thought the kids would be stoked to get chips.  I'm so out of touch.

    No

  • i would've gone for chips! 

     

    ...then again i'm the scroogey teacher that gives pretzels and play-doh.

     

    .....i'm also the child that loved getting peanuts when i went trick or treating :P

    UGH - why can't kids keep their stickers off places they don't belong??
  • I would like to take this opportunity to say that at least 2 kids have said "OOOOOO you have CHIPS!!!"  The Funyuns are a total hit.

    I haven't given out any money...yet.

    Yes 

  • I guess chips are better than this.
