What Do You Do With All That Candy


From October 31, 2019

What’s your Halloween Candy Distribution system? Do you let them eat all they want? Do you take a heavy tax? Do you trade it in at the dentist? Tell us here and 7:15 tomorrow morning.

  1. The Negotiation. On Halloween night and the day after, Jessica Braider lets her two sons eat all the candy they want. But after that, their candy is available only in small quantities as an option for their daily treat.
  2. The Vanishing Act. This tactic simply involves a much larger parent or parents eating tons of Halloween candy before their kids have a chance to take it all down.
  3. The Switch Witch. Parents offer to exchange inedible prizes like toys for large quantities of candy.
  4. The Office Potluck. After letting your kids stuff their faces on Halloween night, put the rest of their candy in a bag and bring it to the office.
