Here Are 5 Classic Halloween Treats You Can’t Hand Out Anymore
Here are five classic Halloween treats you can't hand out anymore.
Halloween is coming up this weekend and it got me thinking about when I was a little kid living in Wake Village. We would go trick or treating door to door in the neighborhood getting our treat bags filled to the rim. I can remember making a trip back home to empty my bag and going back out to fill it out all over again.
Nowadays it is a little different and with COVID we are all being a little more cautious with where the kids go and especially with what we hand out to our trick or treaters that visit my neighborhood.
Here is a list of 5 treats I got as a kid that we can no longer hand out for Halloween.
Carmel Apple, Candy Apple. A staple of my childhood. As a kid, I remember one house in the neighborhood would always have a great assortment of caramel or candy apples for us to pick from. I was always a big fan of the caramel apples with nuts sprinkling on the outside of the apple.
Pop Corn Ball. Not always on my list of things I really liked. They were a staple at any Halloween party and most of our 'Fall Festivals'.
Cookies I had a neighbor growing up that always made sure to have a little bag of three chocolate chip cookies ready for all of her trick or treater visitors.
Carmel corn was a staple at every Halloween event at the school. It was a sought after treat in the neighborhood for all of the kids.
Rice Crispy Treats are the quintessential snack that is a big deal for my kids. I had a neighbor that enjoyed making her treats in Halloween-themed stuff. From witches to ghosts we always had some great treats to choose from for Halloween.
LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years
Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
