My parents do a mix of candy in treat bags.
My mantra for ToT candy is buy the candy that you wouldn't mind having for leftovers.
"Oh, no, a whole bunch of Nerds (or Milky Ways or whatever your fancy) leftover. Darn, guess I'll have to eat them." *wink*
Haha this is me exactly! Except I never have 'leftover' candy, more like 'before' candy
