Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!

I had a kid last night say he didn't like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I should have thrown him off the porch and sent him away without candy.

What is wrong with the youth of today?

Before anyone goes off on a peanut allergy rant, the kid said he didn't like them, not that he was allergic.
Our street is a historic little treat that gets a ton of traffic due to the "House of Pumpkins" and another house that turns into a Broadway set. We went through over 20 large bags of candy last night, but it was such a blast. I coldn't believe how crowded our street was...totally insane. Thank God that candy is about 1/2 price at the commissary compared to what we would have spent at Target or Walmart. Snickers, Reese's, etc get expensive!

I've noticed a trend the past few years. Parents (or someone) have been driving kids from neighborhood to neighborhood in order to maximize the kids candy-grabbing potential. Several vans will pull into my culdesac during the evening, the doors fly open, and about a dozen kids come flying out to make the rounds. What's up with that? It's not a rural area; houses in my neighborhood aren't far apart. It wasn't raining.
Make those kids work for their candy, like we had to! Parents should WALK with younger kids, and when they tire, walk them home. Don't they know gas is over $3 a gallon?
Sheesh; my 2-cent rant. Mad
