I started putting together my trick or treat goodie bags for 2018 this weekend. Last year I only made 40, thinking there couldn't be that many kids in the neighborhood. I was so wrong. This year I am shooting for 100 bags, and hopefully that will prevent me from handing out whatever I can find in my pantry at the last minute.

I'm striving for "allergen friendly" candy this year. Partly because it makes trick or treating easier for kids and parents, but mainly because they tend to be the 'better' candies in my opinion.


My treat bags this year include:

  • Halloween pencils
  • Fun Dip
  • Dum-Dum pops

Here is a list of 'Allergen Friendly" candy if you are looking to go that route for Halloween 2018!

  • Skittles
  • Starbursts
  • Lifesavers
  • Dum-Dum pops
  • Lollipops
  • Dots
  • Ring Pops
  • Smarties
  • Sour Patch Kids
  • Swedish Fish
  • Blow Pops
  • Jelly Belly jelly beans
  • Laffy Taffy
  • Nerds
  • Hershey Bars
  • Nestle Crunch
  • Mounds bars
  • Rolos
  • And so many more
