Growing up, the excitement of Halloween and Trick or Treating was overwhelmingly fun! Being a city kid, we had the advantage of going to many apartments, local grocers and any safe establishment that looked like they were giving out candy. By the end of the evening our bags were stuffed with so much candy that my mom would allow us to go through it and pick out a few pieces and then she would hide it from us and ration it out for the rest of the year - buzz kill! But the buzz that we got from the massive sugar high was real. My favorite then and still to this day was Candy Corn - addictive and pure sugar. Then of course, we would make caramel and candy apples - my other favorite -perhaps that's why the pumpkins are all snaggletoothed. Just book that dental appointment and let your kids - and you, have some sweet fun this evening. Happy Halloween!
