Halloween is coming! What do you give out to trick-or-treaters? If you’re trying to get away from having all the candy in your house (seriously, someone help me with the chocolate!) you might like some of these ideas for non-candy Halloween treats for kids. See what our moms have to say about what we’re handing out, and be sure to scroll way down to learn about how you can help UNICEF this Halloween, and how you can WIN big during our Twitter party on October 16 (but you have to RSVP – so do that below!).
I go for the good stuff! But honestly, it’s probably more for selfish reasons than anything. I buy lots of candy “just in case” which really means so when we don’t use it all I can claim it. I’m a big fan of Kit Kats, Twix and Milky Way. YUM!! 🙂
We usually go trick or treating and don’t pass out candy but the times we do, I usually pass out the good stuff. The Reese’s, and other yummy candy bars because those are my faves. Keeping my hands out of the candy bowl is a challenge.

We give out candy, and sadly it’s usually candy that I like so I munch on it before Halloween…which usually means I need to go buy another bag before the trick-or-treaters get here. You’d think I’d learn my lesson, but apparently not. Those Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups just cannot be denied!
When I was a kid it was a big deal to get mini chocolate bars for trick or treat so that’s what I give out. I may or may not have to sample a few of them.
What do you give out to trick-or-treaters?
Did you know that while your child is out collecting candy this year that they can be helping to save the lives of children around the world? Trick or Treat for UNICEF started in 1950 as a way for kids to help kids. Since then, children have taken UNICEF collection boxes (you can get one for free here) with them trick or treating collecting change for this amazing cause! Since 1950 children have raised over $170 million dollars while trick or treating!
This year UNICEF has made fundraising even easier! In addition to taking the iconic boxes with you while trick or treating you also have the option of creating an online fundraising page. In just a few seconds, you can set up a Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF fundraising page to share with friends and family. The money you raise will help save and protect children by providing clean water, nutritious food, lifesaving vaccines and more. Because some kids need more than candy.
On Thursday 10/16 from 1-2 PM ET we will be having an #EasyToGive #UNICEF Twitter Party! You will want to be sure to RSVP to be eligible for one of 5 amazing prizes (Over $325 worth!) from HSN! RSVP here!
