Guidelines to Checking Halloween Candy


Love thy neighbor, but don’t trust them on Halloween. That’s the motto around here.

Before heading out on Halloween night, please take a moment to consider exactly what we are doing. We are taking our children door to door and accepting candy from total strangers.

Kudos to you if you know every single person who’s door bell you ring, but lets be honest, you probably only know your neighbors in the 5 closest homes to yours.

Taking candy from strangers. Didn’t our mothers instill to never do this in our minds at a young age? Yet, here we are. Now, don’t get me wrong Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday for many reasons, but it can be very dangerous. As parents, it’s our job to make sure our children are having fun and happy, along with keeping them safe. There is always a possibility that someone may tamper with childrens Halloween candy, and I want to be sure it doesn’t end up hurting your child!


Remind your children they cannot eat any candy until you have checked it first.

 Here’s what to look for, and what to avoid this Halloween-


Look For:

Throw away any items that match this criteria & contact police immediately if you find any tainted candy or treats.

Some police stations and doctors offices are available to check your treats if you’d like a second opinion.

Now, go trick-or-treating, take a flashlight, and let your kids have some candy before bed! Just be cautious and safe this Halloween!

Have Fun!
