As Halloween quickly approaches, it is time to stock up on treats for the little trick or treaters in your neighbourhood. What is your treat of choice? Personally, I’m a fan of smarties, or ‘scaries’ as they are now marketed during this time of year.
That wasn’t always the case of course.
As a kid, chips were always considered treat royalty, but I think that may have had more to do with how big they made your loot bag look more than their actual contents, which typically ranged from 3-5 chips per bag. Remember kisses? The taffy-like creation never to be seen other than during the month of October. Not to mention the rare full-sized chocolate bar houses that we would endlessly search for in our neighbourhood, never to actually find.
