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.

Laughing Cow cheese cubes
Velveeta slices
Canned mushrooms
100-calorie cookie-thin packs
Individual sticks of gum
Tortilla chips
Kalamata Olives

I am so getting egged next year.

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.
