    Homemade halloween treats

    Advertisements
    For the parents out there especially, or anyone else who takes little ones around on Halloween:

    I know this may be a dumb question anymore, and people probably got away with it in the 50's, but that's why I'm asking. I don't want to do anything "taboo" per say.

    Would you allow your kids/young children/yourself to accept homemade goodies from someone for halloween as their trick or treat candy? I have candy as well, but i love to make cookies/brownies and my SO and I won't need to sit here eating them all. Would it even be worth it to make these to pass out for halloween or will no one take them out of fear i put poison/anthrax/h1n1() flu virus/whatever other hoax they made up this year in the baked goods?

    Nope. You just can't be too trusting. The only circumstance would be close family or close friends.

    Depending on what they are, I'd totally take them off your hands.

    If we knew/trusted the person, of course. Strangers, no. So, it depends.

    As kids, we were always allowed to. Simpler times in a small town I guess.

    Nope. All the candy is carefully inspected after trick or treating; anything that's been opened or even accidentally opened (like a little tear or anything) goes in the trash.
