We're in a new and growing development. Last year we had between 40 and 50 TOT's. This year we have 60 full size bars on hand, but I think we're gonna buy some more just in case. I wish we could get 500+ at our place!!
I wish! I bought two bags and I know I'm going to have leftovers. Last year we had 12 kids. This my husband and my 2nd year in a new home, and while the neighborhood is quiet and great, there aren't a lot of young kids around. AND we live in a cul-de-sac at the end of a pretty long road, so most kids just pass by. BUT the plan is to slowly build an awesome haunt and eventually build a reputation so those TOT's will make the trek.
We get more and more each year, as more people have gotten to know about our display. We've gone from like 3 toter's the first year, to around 45 last year. Not sure how many will show this year. I am making up treat bags now.
I have around 1100 individual pieces candy; some fun size, some minis. We get around 500 kids so enough for 2 pieces per kid plus some extra. If things slow down and we still have candy, I'll be very generous.
We bought a ton of the stuff last night. Mostly minis. Last year we bought more fun size stuff than I could imagine actually giving out and we totally ran out of candy by 9 or so. Personally, I like an idea somebody put out there as a joke on another thread of individually wrapping M&Ms to make it last longer!
I had an 18 gallon storage tote filled to the top with candy - used all but one full bag and a few stray pieces of candy. I think it was about 50 to 60 pounds of candy.
I've figured it was about 750 kids, roughly speaking.
Already picked up a couple bags of Laffy Taffy, a few bags of Skittles, and a dozen boxes of Ring Pops (22 per box) to start next years hand-out stash.
(and yes, I do test stuff before I put it out for ToT's - anything not up-to-snuff gets round filed, so no one gets bad candy)
Here we go again. All those with brave hearts and green thumbs climb on board for the 2020 pumpkin growers thread. Here we can discuss anything about our endeavors to grow pumpkins for the Halloween season. From the tiny mini-pumpkins to those tipping the scales at a ton, no pumpkin is out of...
