Trick or Treat: How do you decide what candy to give out for Halloween?

It seems so simple.

You go to the store, pick up a few bags of candy (on sale? even better!) hand out treats on Halloween, and save a few for later.

But there is some serious thinking involved in picking out Halloween candy.

Some parents buy mini versions of their favorite candy bar because, heck, if they're going to have leftovers, they might as well be something they love. Other moms and dads get the latest, trendy candy that kids will dig.

Maybe you try to be somewhat healthy and offer fruit gummies or fruit roll-ups.

Or? You avoid candy altogether, and hand out Halloween-themed pencils, erasers and/or any other generally ghoulish-looking trinket you can find.

Decisions, decisions.

What's your Halloween candy purchasing strategy?
