You can start a new thread on here--Holiday decorations. I think that would be a fun thread and it could continue thru Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I am so in trouble when my wife finds out that I found her haloween candy hiding spot. I don't generally eat candy except at this time of year. I think it's some regressive candy gene I have. I wish my children were still young so I could eat.. er... I mean inspect their trick or treat candy to make sure it was safe for them to have. I am however the giver of the goodies on haloween. We get dozens of trick or treaters and sometimes I mess with the kids (the ones I know). When they come to my house I ask if they want to trade. I ask to look in their bags and if I see a piece of candy I like I offer a trade. For instance if I see a grape tootsie pop I'll offer 5 snickers for it. Most jump at the deal. (By the way before you blow me up, they all still get their regular treats whether or not they trade, so I'm not a mean old man.) More times than not I wind up giving them their candy back without them even realizing it. One kid will tell another and I've actually had children ask what I'll give them for a piece of candy. I'm sure it's a piece they don't like. I'll say this. When they get older they will remember the man that use to trade candy at haloween. Hopefully this will bring a smile to their faces!

That is hilarious! But I'd give up 5 Snickers for a Bit-O-Honey which I haven't been able to find now for years..

Okay, well, when I was growing up my mom would eat all the candy, then as I became an adult, I would eat all the candy in my own house. Now, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), I can't say that I'm in your boat anymore MoMark....we don't buy candy for Halloween anymore. It's not that we don't want to, trust me, I have no problem eating it all, but since we moved here, we don't get trick or treaters. Last year (our first Halloween here) we wondered why no kids came...by the time this year rolled around, we learned from our neighbors (and our own firsthand experience) that my landlord is none other than The Wicked Witch of the East herself and no one LET'S their kids come here. So we don't buy candy. But if we did, I'd eat it all.

Go to www.oldtimecandy.com and you wish will be answered. We actually bought a ton of candy from them a few years back for our 35th. high school reunion. The theme was the 60s'. They have candy brands dating back to the 50s' The people at the reunion had a great time reminiscing about the candies we ate as kids in the 50s' and 60s'. It brought back great memories. They have almost any candy you can think of. Enjoy your Bit-O-Honey and have a Mallo Cup on me!

Great idea! And, "vermontcountrystore.com" has ol' time candy, too! Even Swedish fish, Mary Jane's (my all time fav's) & Teaberry gum! They used to have Bonomo Turkish taffy (I remember it getting stuck on the roof of my mouth during recess in 1st grade), but I'll check "oldtimecandy" for that.

Yum... Baltic_Celt

There is a company that makes candy very similar to Bonomo Turkish Taffey. Old Time Candy may have it. I haven't tried it.
The perplexing question of the day when we were youngsters. Do we go to the store, buy a Turkish Taffey and eat it right away or FREEZE it, smack it down on sidewalk, open and enjoy. Do you think kids today worry about stuff like that? Enjoy.
