    Whatcha giving out this year to the TOTs? How do you give it (mmmmm go on)? In bags, the kids take out of bowl (no that bowl Genius), etc?

    I give out good candy. I don't get many at my house except for a few family members, since I'm so far away from town, that I can give out full sized bars to them of their favorites.

    Then I usually go to a friends house & wear a zombie costume to hang out candy, & bring several bags to help out (of fun sized ones). I'll scare some of the bigger kids, by hiding around the house.

    The zombie one is what I've done the last couple years. I've got a good selection of ones to choose from.

    Candy... the hidden cost of haunting ;)

    We do around 300 - 400 ToTs, and despite the Monday holiday this year, I expect the enlarged walkthrough will still generate that number. We do small candies for the cowardly, and full size for the haunt patrons. We have a decent discount store where we can often get in code stuff like Snickers, Skittles, and the like for 3 or 4 for a buck. I gave out the candy during a jump scare last year, so when they screamed and drew back I'd stick candy in their faces... it was fun, though it did soften the blow of the scare... This year we're operating a table at the exit which will deal with both types.

    There's nothing fun about fun sized.

    Fun sized here as well. With about 600 TOT's it economical. A lot of kids just want to go through the haunt and don't even care about the candy but we have plenty for everyone who shows up. We have one person who is the designated candy doler outer and we pass it out before they do the walk through, not as a reward for having gone through.

    I do a treat bag or a treat cup..I have used the access cups from my parties for years.I always give lotsa candy and a few lil novelties.I only get like 50 tot but where I live that's a lot.
    I give out fun size candy but each kid gets two of each...which I buy all of the fun size bar bags..so they end up with like 14 fun size bars and a couple of suckers.

    Two pieces per TOT'er. If we have candy left over the next day, we take it to the homeless shelter downtown for the families who have nothing.
