No sale here, either, but bought one bag of candy. Was pretty sure we wouldn't have anyone showing up, but you never know. Naturally I made sure the candy was something I liked! Temperature was in the 40's with wind gusts above 40 mph! So that pretty much eliminated all chances of any "customers"

We actually had to chaperone the marching band last night at a first round high school playoff game so we didn't even bother buying any candy.  Darn the bad luck!  Now I have nothing to eat!

We put a bowl of candy out. And they picked all the kit kats and milky ways out and left the hard candies! I purposely put the chocolate on the bottom

Back when we took our kids out trick or treating we left a bowl of treats on a table on the step by the door in case anyone came while we were out. There was always candy missing when we got home, but it was never all taken. I wonder if that would still be the case?

We have farmers market(so to speak,its in a butler building,small place) here where they have an honor box,you pick out weigh and bag your own stuff(no workers are ever there)and drop your money in a cigar box..the owner said there is always more in the box than what was sold..if you cant afford to pay you dont have too.

I was surprised that out bowl was still a 1/4 full. We left it outside and took our kids out. Seems there are still honest kids and parents out.

I favour regular potato chips.

 

Reminds me of a story my wife always tells.  One year she stopped at a house and apparently caught the guy by surprise with the whole trick or treat thing.  He left the door for a minute and returned to drop a handful of loose potato chips in her candy bag.  :D
