With Halloween upon us, some of you might be hiding out with the lights off to keep kids begging for candy off your front lawn. Or you might be generously handing out full-size chocolate bars instead of those “fun size” candy bars that aren’t really that much fun at all. Either way, if you like candy, you might be replenishing your supply on the cheap soon.
- What can you do with all the Halloween candy your kids have — but that you don’t want them to eat? Try a ‘Cash for Candy’ buyback operation (usually from a local dentist) that will take your candy and send it to troops overseas. Or just prank them and record it. [url]
- Poisoned Halloween candy is a myth — except for Ronald Clark O’Bryan who actually did hand out poisoned candy to a few kids. O’Bryan was executed for murdering his own son and trying to cover up his heinous act by passing out poisoned candy. So don’t worry too much about poisoned candy, but it’s still a good idea to check to make sure the candy isn’t rotten or something. [url]
- The International Cocoa Quarantine Centre studies hundreds of varieties of cocoa plants to help protect the crop from disease and other threats — and keep chocolate production in step with demand. Chocolate flavors could also change drastically as different crops become popular, but the alternative of chocolate shortages isn’t an appetizing idea, either. [url]
