Get it? Suckas. Because you get suckers on Halloween. Ha. Ahem.
My sister Lyndsey and I used to go trick or treating, then come home and dump our candies out and sort them into piles. The sorting was serious business. There was the premium chocolate pile, things like Snickers, 3 Musketeers, Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups, & Kit Kats. The fruity pile, Skittles, Sweet Tarts, and Starburst. The miscellaneous pile had Milk Duds, Suckers, & Double Bubble. I mean yeah, it wasn’t our first choice, but it WAS candy.
Right after we had my mom check everything for open packages, RAZOR BLADES! NEEDLES! SCARY THINGS! PENNIES! she always traded me anything with nuts in it for anything like Smarties or Sweet Tarts. I could get like thirty snicker bars for a handful of Smarties and a big Chewy Sweet Tart.
It was a beautiful thing.
This video made me laugh my ass off.
