While most people associate Halloween with sweet treats, it’s also a time for some spooky tricks. Not every family gives away your typical Halloween candy while trick-or-treating, or even a weird, mediocre candy for that matter. While there are always those houses on the block that go the extra mile, a survey of friends has shown us that you can't even begin to imagine the wackiest tricks and treats ever received, taking the phrase "trick-or-treat" to an unprecedented new level.
"Liter bottles of soda."
"An entire box of Rice Krispies."
"Quarters. This old guy used to give each kid one quarter, and I remember being so hype about it."
"10 bucks. I went as a Christmas present and the box was too big to see over my feet, so I tripped and twisted my ankle in their yard. I think they felt bad."
"Air time on a radio game show."
"Handfuls of unwrapped gumdrops."
"A live goldfish–it died later that night."
"Playdough… received at age 17."
"A single, uncooked noodle."
"When I was little, kids would come to the door and say 'Trick-or-Treat,' and my dad would say, 'Okay, I’ll show you a trick,' and make my cat jump through a hoop."
The Straight-Up WTFs
"Flyers about sin and redemption through Jesus Christ."
"Friskies wet cat food, but then he took it back because he realized his mistake."
"A bible–and I was literally dressed up as a turkey sandwich."
"Flavored condoms...my mom was with me.”
So maybe the next time you get a Banana Laffy Taffy and think it's the worst candy ever, remember that things could definitely be worse.
