    We usually stick with traditional candy, but a couple of times we have given out coins (real money) or those certificates you buy at fast food places for a free kids cone or Frosty. Does anyone else give out money? ohhh and Trick Or Treat…love Honest Tea

  2. Nicole Says:

    I’ve given out fruit like bananas, apples, pears, things with skin that are easy to eat on the go. I was skeptical at first, but most of the kids were actually happy to get some fruit.

  3. Sarah J. Says:

    I bought a bag of the Envirokidz treat size peanut butter and chocolate bars-yummmmmm!

  4. Joan Says:

    After running out of candy last year, I gave out Chocolate Chip Chewy Bars that were meant to be in the kids lunches for the next several weeks. As they walked into the lunchroom somberly with no Chewy bars in their lunchboxes, they discovered that the rest of the lunchroom did! :)

  5. Kyle Says:

    Packets of oatmeal…has noting else in the house…

  6. Anne Lehnick Says:

    Eyeball high bounce balls is about as unconventional as I’ve gotten. I don’t get trick or treaters so I don’t buy treats for them. I do however send things to my son’s daycare but I send toys instead os candy.

  7. Lisa Says:

    Raisins. My sister says I’m “that” mom. ;)

  8. Alea Shinn Says:

    Little Debbie treats!! We had a few kids going through our apartment building one year even though we weren’t planning on trick or treating, so we gave them the only snacks we had on hand!! LOL.

  9. Stephanie Says:

    Pretzels and little toys.

  10. Rebecca O Says:

    Stickers and pencils, They are halloween themed though, so not too out there.

  11. Michelle L Says:

    We forgot to buy stuff one year, so we handed out my daughters snack bags- pretzels, raisins, fruit bars

  12. Erin Ashworth Says:

    I handed out toothbrushes one year (no, I’m not a dentist)

  13. Ashley L Says:

    I collected all my kids happy meal toys and little toys he no longer played with and made a box to give out

  14. Kristen M Says:

    Playdough, pencils, erasers

  15. Amber Saxby Says:

    I handed out miniature bags of popcorn one year. This year I’d like to give out VitaRocks, but we’ll see if I can get a good deal!!

  16. Robin O Says:

    We once handed out coupons for a free ice cream cone at Friendly’s. It wasn’t immediate gratification, but I hope the kids enjoyed their ice cream afterwards!

  17. Sharee Says:

    Those little party favor size play doughs… :)

  18. Dusten Says:

    Not too crazy, but we gave out pencils

  19. Christopher Miranda Says:

    Halloween party crackers, like the Christmas party crackers except with Halloween prizes.
