For generations we have been checking our childrens trick-or-treat bags and throwing away certain items that have chances of being tampered with. Yet, every year my children come home with the candies that make the list to be thrown out! Save your money, and time by not purchasing or making these items!
Here’s a list of what NOT to buy, or hand out to trick-or-treaters:
- Home made food (brownies, cookies, caramel apples, popcorn etc.)
- Fruit or Vegetables
- Treats with Twist wrappers (Smarties, Tootsie Rolls, Suckers, etc.)
- Treats in Boxes, that are not Sealed. (Raisins)
- Loose Unwrapped Candy
- Jelly Fruit Candy Skewers (Home Made)
To ensure your treats dont get tossed, stick to the candy or treats that are in sealed packages!
