Fark that. There will be trick-or-treating.

I give out full-size bars and I don't care if I have to wear a proximity suit, launch the candy at the kids with a potato gun or have my boxer brother-in-law give me a sassy robot to deliver bars to the curb, I'm not losing my Neighborhood Legend status.

Carmel kissed vodak in cider for the parents, hot dogs and a shiat ton of candy here.

There is a way because I have the will

im thinking of a 2 bowl strategy. a large bowl inside the house with the reserve and then filling a small bowl with just enough for who ever is at the door. 5 kids come up but 5 pieces of candy in the small bowl and put that out. lysol between groups.

either that or i was going to rig up some sort of goonies-like rube goldberg candy delivery machine.

The candy bowl at work used to get refilled once every 2-3 weeks. Its daily now.  Good news is they have Reeses Take 5's now.  Even better that it's a long walk over there so I get my steps in.

Yep, still happening here. Everyone is just going to put ziploc bags of candy outside out on the table away to social distance. Can't get Covid-19 if you are not sucking in the same air as the infected.

Great, so everything is hunky dory on you front lawn.  I am oh so certain the little germ factories and their parents will tooootally adhere to mask and distancing measures at every other opportunity.  SureOk.jpg.

You are enabling and supporting that behavior for your own egotistical reasons.

Per the CDC guidelines, Moderate risk:  Participating in one-way trick-or-treating where individually wrapped goodie bags are lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance (such as at the end of a driveway or at the edge of a yard)

Well, for one thing, they were already stocking Halloween candy in the first farking week of September at the stores I go to (mostly Target).

(shrug) And I bought some. So I'm part of the "problem." I bought a bunch of those tiny lollipops to put in a bowl at the office.

Those assholes aren't getting chocolate until it's actually October. If then. I might buy chocolate and keep it all to myself.

Everyone deserves treats on Halloween!

Our town is having trick or treat like usual.  Not sure what I will do But I do have a Halloween mask that will work with my costume. Weather permitting, I might sit out on the patio in my rocking chair and scare the kiddos like I usually do but have the treat bowl so they can help themselves. I may put the treats in bags so they can take one bag without digging in the bowl with their germ laden hands.

I stopped drinking in 2013 and have turned to candy instead. I overdid it with sugar in the last year or so and my body is telling me to slow down so I did. Trying hard to stay off of sugar, because I need to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle.
Sugar is the hardest, most addictive  drug ever. The last time I quit sugar was to train for a race a few years ago and I was in the bed shaking like spookiest from New Jack City. I always say that it's the only thing where my mind tells me that I have to get dressed at 11:30 at night, walk a mile in the snow just to go get discount chocolate at Target. So many fat people are addicted to sugar.

They're back in production baby!  I was kind of pissed that I didn't get the product in stock notification from Blair Candy like I signed up for. I should get them and some candy cigarettes while I'm at it.

Some Farker in another thread posted their setup - a long cardboard tube angled down the stair railing. Put candy in at one end, it pops out in the kid's bag at the other end. Clever.

The green bag with the word buds made me expect it to be something a bit more potent.
