When I was a little girl running around my neighbourhood with my pillow case on this magical day, I always looked forward to getting licorice, it was always my favourite. I would trade away my chocolate for the little red gleamy slices without hesitation. It was not until I became an adult that I started to care for chocolate. Now I buy chocolate for the trick or treaters but am happy to also give away my favourite, liquorice.
In my old neighbourhood in North York there was always one house that gave away chips, one house where a dentist lived who gave away toothbrushes (we always attempted to avoid his house but went to it by mistake every single year) and my favourite unusual treat came from a lady who would give individual packages of hot chocolate. As soon as I came home I would put on the kettle and look forward to warming up to her hot chocolate.
As an adult I always make sure to keep a little of the candy aside for me and my husband so if we run out, we will also have some treats in the end. Last year we only had about 15 kids, most of them teens who did not even bother with costumes. Still, I believe in Halloween, in giving to strangers on this long and dark night. I have no fears there will be more than enough leftover when the doorbells stops ringing.
What are your favourite Halloween treats to get and give away? Did you get anything unusual when you were a kid?
