I was going to pass out some of those candy cigarettes to the kids this year, but I coudn't find any. So I used real cigarettes instead.

You should of seen the looks on their faces when they bit into a mouthful of tobacco. Priceless!

They started spitting the little pieces of paper and tobacco that was stuck in their mouths and saying stuff like "ewwww" or some of them just broke into tears.

Then a few of the parents raced from their cars, grabbed the kids, and said, "Damn you, Gus! Damn you to hell!"

Now the whole friggin town is mad at me. Just because I wanted to have some fun.

I love black licorice and eat red on occasion.

Any other colors? Is there green licorice?

Do you know of a health food store nearby? If so, go in and look for panda brand licorice.

I don't know what a twizzler is, sniff.

I don't like licorice, used to hate Good n'Plenty when I was a child.

I have always liked candy corn. However, I am a stickler, as I believe it is valuable to bite off the yellow tip before eating the orange part.

One of our neighbors made real home made caramel apples.. but that wasn't at halloween, it was after we came back from ice skating..

Caramel apples are good, but you should try a caramel covered potato! Pure heaven. I'm thinking of opening a caramel covered potato stand on 45th street in Times Square. It's gonna be big!

Sounds like something a contestant on fear factor would have to eat.

I've never eaten candy corn, should I start?

Last night after pilfering through my kids goody bags, I made a couple of observations.
Kids get way more chocolate than we ever did as kids. Freezees and swimming pool gift certificates are cool ideas. Nobody gives out spits, caramels, rice crispy squares or mojos anymore and people give out cans of pop??? Pretty heavy for the little tykes.
What disturbed me the most, as an environmentaly friendly kinda gal was....Chips and nachos are 7 to a bag or there abouts. I mean, all that garbage for a few flakes, why bother?

Ooh, your mention of caramels made me remember my all-time favorite candy. Those caramel creme thingies? Is that what you are talking about? They have a caramel outside and then the sweetest plug of white creamy sugar right in the center? Oh my god, now I have to go out and get some of those damn things as soon as possible!

My mom and dad gave out cans of Pepsi; kids had their choice of that, or a big Hershey bar.
