Most parents in the places I’ve lived won’t take homemade treats at all. We’ve had too many poisonings and treats laced with things like razor blades. The sickos have ruined it. In my current community the kids don’t even go door to door, the local shopping mall has a trick or treat parade and each store is given candy to hand out to the kids who come by. All of the kids I know just go there to get their candy in costume. It’s sad. #DreamTeam
Oh my goodness! That sounds awful. Very sensible to avoid anything other than stuff which is in sealed packs. x
There’s nothing wrong with a little candy! It’s not great to eat loads of it every day, but let’s face it – Halloween means sweets. The local kids will thank you for it! #dreamteam
Ha ha! My problem is I buy the treats for the kids then want to eat them all myself! xx #dreamteam
Haha! I get where you are coming from. I like doing the craft thing with my daughter for fun but that’s for us. For the trick or treaters it’s packet sweets all the way! #dreamteam
Haha, this is brilliant! Really enjoyed reading this one. We don’t get any trick or treaters at our house which is a shame. I still buy a big tub of sweets though, just in case! X #dreamteam
Just in case is a very good reason to buy a big tub of goodies. 🙂 X
Ah this really made me smile!! I actually really like the idea of the apples and may offer both apples and sweets this year…will let you know how that goes down!! And the ghosts are kinda cute in a wobbly way 😉 Thanks for hosting #DreamTeam as always lovely! xxx
Haha! Thanks Nic. They tasted totally gross. Let me know how your apples go. xxx
Is it just me or does anyone else hate Halloween?? It’s a stupid thing that’s not even an English tradition. Living where I live I doubt we will get any trick or treaters tbh but then I wouldn’t know because we always go out on Halloween night. When we lived on a large estate I bought sweets and put them out on the door step in a large bowl. That was my contribution as I didn’t want my house to be egged! Anyway, enough of my barhumbug attitude! Make the treats with your little one, she will enjoy it. Those ghosts made me lol. #dreamteam
Nope, you are not alone. I don’t like trick or treating at all. The primary school aged little ones do look very lovely all dressed up, and we do give sweets out. But, I’m not down with it, and don’t let mine do it. xx
Last year I bought all the chocolate and sweets, then ate most of them. I burdened myself with the task of eating all the chocolate to save the kids from having too much sugar and getting bad teeth (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it).
Hehe! Love it. I think it’s an important Halloween tradition to buy all the goodies, but then eat them yourself. x
This year we are going trick or treating for the first time with the girls. Can’t wait to see who has been creative. haha.
Ooohh! Take photos 🙂
I say yay to number 9! Not that I’m not looking forward to trick or treaters, but more candy for me? I’m not going to say no! #DreamTeam
Haha i secretly hope we get no Trick or Treaters so I can eat all the chocolate!! x x #DreamTeam
Giving out fruit! Ha ha #DreamTeam
Bloody yes love Halloween sweets and nobody has got all the time to make everything from scratch, more importantly there is blogging to do X #dreamteam
Mmmmmm….candy. I have already eaten everything I have bought so far. Time to get more!
I usually hit the sales after halloween and enjoy my spoils!
The Banana Ghosts look cute. Our neighbour always hands out mandarines for Halloween and the kids love it. #dreamteam
If you cant enjoy some candy on halloween when can yiu! The banana ghosts look ace haha #ExplorerKids
The way I see it is Halloween happens once a year. I’ve no issue with a few jellies and chocolates on that night. It’s the trying to get the nippers to sleep after it that I struggle with!!!! Good post Annette. #DreamTeam
I have seen people give out fruit before and I think it’s more than acceptable – I think my kids would be happy with a nice apple. Su #DreamTeam
The banana ghosts actually look like little ghosts! Some good reasons listed there. Thankful that here, people don’t generally knock on your door for candy if you don’t have Halloween decorations u0p, so you can “opt out”, as it were, if you don’t feel like attending a parade of candy-seeking-small-peeps! #dreamteam
We frequently Halloween as the chance to get rid of any gone off party, Christmas, easter sweets before the next influx of Christmas! Weird right? Seriously we get more sweets than we could ever let the kids eat…
Oh Annette I think this is one of my fave posts of yours and had me giggling all the way through. I actually quite like your ghosts bananas and I’m also impressed with your chocolate spider cakes. I don’t even want to hit them with a shoe or anything!
“Except nope” made me belly laugh! xx
Nothing wrong with giving and having some candy. Your banana ghosts look amazeballs – would never say it was a fail #dreamteam
Good reasons. My reason to buy all the candy is simple – I love sweets! #DreamTeam
LOL at the demented banana treats, but great effort!! I’m proud of the fact that you even tried to make actual candy at home. That’s so sweet. #dreamteam
I love the ghosts! They look awesome! (Maybe that doesn’t say much for my baking skills!!)
I can definitely see the advantage of buying candy when needing it en mass though! Have a lovely Halloween.
Yeah, I’m with you… I might make something little for myself though, otherwise the kids might arrive to find I’ve eaten all theirs hahaha!! #dreamteam
The older the kids get – the more I love Halloween! I’ll be buying ALL the candy too! Happy Halloween! #dreamteam
A case of all in moderation perhaps just kept to events rather than an everyday occurrence. #DreamTeam
I never go overboard for Halloween I’m afraid. I buy candy to give to trick or treaters: last year we didn’t get any so we had to eat it all, what a shame! #dreamteam
This was so amusing to read, and I have to say, it always was a bit of a bummer when I used to go trick or treating when I was little and I’d get fruit! For me Halloween was a night where I could kind of roam free in the sugar department. Also, those banana ghosts actually made me laugh out loud and so did the comment about the strawberries, that’s hilarious!

We don’t have to buy a thing this year, as we are still in the apartment (boo) and no one comes in at all. We head out where the real goods are, then we trick or treat like crazy. You’re Pinterest comment had me rolling out loud! 😀 A year’s wages at least! Your ghosts were chilling! Love your spirit (get it!) <3 <3 <3 #dreamteam
I’m a sucker for harribo and the urge to buy a £5 tub from Tescos for me alone is the reason why I ate a lemon meringue pie today… I’m not sure whats worse hahah! #dreamteam
I once made Christmas cookies that looked nothing like anything remotely festive so I vowed I’d never do it again! I love this post, I think we’re all behind you with this one 😉 Thank you for hosting #dreamteam with me lovely x
Great post. Totally not bothering with homemade. Last year we almost forgot and hubby was sent out for emergency candy and came back with tales of very near misses with squishing little gouls and skeletons all in black as he drove back in!!! #dreamteam
Hahaha this really made me chuckle as yesterday I had the biggest halloween baking fail ever! they were supposed to be ghost like cupcakes and looked more monster/mess than anything else. And I found them on bloody Pinterest! Sorry i’m late commenting this week… enjoy your leftover sweets with strictly this weekend… hopefully I will be too! #DreamTeam
We have Halloween candy in our kitchen drawer from 2 years ago! We buy loads…give out loads…and the children bring home even more than we started with and never eat any of it! #dreamteam
Oh those poor banana fails are hilarious! Luckily my little one is still too young to know what Halloween is all about so I get away with not making an effort this year! And since I’m trying to lose the last few pregnancy pounds *cough* one year later *cough*, I think I’ll avoid buying any at all…. maybe… perhaps…. #dreamteam
We have bought a 5kg tub of Swizzles as we seem to run out every year. Hoping for some left as they are my favourites.
Haha love this and totally get it. I spent ages baking for a get together this weekend. I do enjoy it but when catering to the masses sometimes it’s just easier to buy.
