Ramses and I are trick-or-treat pros. We get so much candy every Halloween that it lasts us until the next year. Some of you will point out that Halloween shouldn't be all about candy and we shouldn't be eating so much of it. But to you, I say "Trick-or-treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!"
Ramses' & F.W.'s super tips for getting the biggest
Halloween candy haul you've ever seen.
1) Have a couple of costumes ready. Start early and run to all of houses on your route. Then, run home, drop off your candy, and change costumes. Go to all of them again. Do this as many times a possible. We suggest fake mustaches, vampire teeth, funny wigs and other easy to switch accesories to help you change your appearance quickly!
2) Have an adult drive you to all the big houses in the fancy pants neighborhoods. They usually have the real good candy. You might even get full candy bars!
3) Try to get your parents to take you out later in the night. People are looking to unload their extra candy and you can be a willing recipient. Can you believe that there are people who want to get rid of candy?!
4) Ask around at school beforehand and see which houses have the most generous candy givers. Planning a route that is known to have good candy hordes is smart trick or treating. Rember, quantity of houses does not always beat quality. Sometimes it's best to go to fewer houses where the nice people know how to spoil a trick or treater instead of hitting a bunch of houses where they give out the dreaded pennies.
Oh, and make sure your parents are okay with you getting so much candy, and show it to them before you eat it. They might go on about your teeth and dentists and stuff, but they're parents and that's what they're supposed to do.
Happy Halloween and Happy trick-or-treating!
