Trick? Or Treat?
I don't know how much actual trick-or-treating is done in these more safety-conscious times, but I just wanted to share an idea for a harmless way to mess with the kids' minds if they come to your door:
Give them candy they've never heard of.
The idea came to me while browsing through the Sweet Nostalgia website, where you can order hard-to-find candies...they're still being made, though their heyday has long since passed. Can you imagine a child's reaction upon being presented with a Goo-Goo Cluster, an Idaho Spud, or an Abba-Zabba Bar?
