Morning Philly. So what's on your candy roster for tonight? I'm passing out Japanese imported KitKat's (Raspberry, Strawberry and the limited edition Carmel Pudding).
@alan Well, now I wanna visit HMart and change mine up.
Full-size candy bars (yay Costco), fruit bars for those with allergies, and balloon "pumpkins" with stickers and erasers and whatnot inside.
@alan Oh, and also glow bracelets and Capri Suns.
@gamehawk you really go all out that's awesome. I imported some special KitKat flavors from Japan. Not a lot of kids come around and there's kids in the neighborhood.
So I'm taking all that candy into work tomorrow.
How'd it go for you tonight?
@alan It has escalated for the last few years. Gave out ~ 30 pumpkins, ~ 25 candy bars (there was a lot of non-overlap where smaller kids' parents declined the candy bars, and older kids didn't go for the balloons/stickers). A big crowd comes from across the street, where all the grandkids come to Grandma's house. Last year I called them over and they were like "nooo, we're not even from the neighborhood" and I said that was okay. This year there was no stopping the kids, they REMEMBERED. 👍
@alan REALLY? where were you when I was an adventurous sugar addict ?
