Trick or ... Tuna?

I ran out of candy at 8:15 PM and had to start improvising for the Trick-or-Treaters. Here are some alternative treats for you in case this ever happens to you.

Tuna
Laughing Cow cheese cubes
Velveeta slices
Soup
Canned mushrooms
100-calorie cookie-thin packs
Individual sticks of gum
Raisins-by-the-handful
Tortilla chips
Kalamata Olives
Tampons
Cashews
Barrettes

I am so getting egged next year.

I still believe that kids love large spoonfulls of mashed potatoes.

or...potato buds sprinkled into their bag and then doused with a cup of water.

I used to get lots of tampons.

You can also just invite them in to "hang out, play twister, and listen to Perry Como records."

I gave out rocks painted to look like candy.

When I run out, I just open the door, wait for the "Trick or Treatttt" and then say, "Trick" and shut the door.

Well - they DO give me an option.
