Supersized Trick or Treat

This is what will face the trick or treaters that come to our house on Friday. A big bowl of assorted FULL SIZE candy bars.

I love the looks on the kids' faces when they see them and try to decide which one to pick. And there have only been a few times that I've had to pull the bowl back from someone grabbing multiple bars.

We've always done full-sized bars for Halloween. The good thing about it is I think it provides some extra insurance against our pumpkins being smashed or our house being egged. The down side is that you are stuck with BIG candy leftovers.

Oh, man. Was your Halloween yesterday? Ours is today. I suppose I can always just go out and buy me some candy bars, but it's not the same.

When I was a kid, we always got full-sized candy bars. I think we would've rioted at anything less.

JD: Yes, our trick or treat is always the Friday before the 31st. When I was a kid it was always on the 31st, regardless of what day of the week it was. And everything was full-sized too.

I should update this post after last night. Nearly every single kid tired to grab more than one candy bar this year. Even when I said "Take ONE" I had to pull the bowl back repeatedly. I probably should take it as a compliment.
