Candy for the Tricksters! What did you get?

Well I just came from Target a short while ago and spend $40 on Candy for the Tricksters (My neighborhood has a TON of kids! ) I actually really enjoy doing it and having a BIG selection of candy for the kids. Aside from the big brands I worked on (I still consider them my babies... )... I made sure to get...
* This cool pack of three types of Kit Kats... Regular, White Chocolate, and Triple Chocolate!
* A bag of mini Take 5s.. the most evil candy ever invented... I'm horribly bitter that we didn't invent it, but slightly glad that we also didn't either because having a free stash of those would have been the death of my waistline...
So I was curious.... what candy and things do the hounds give out... (And then hope to have some left over after... ;) )?

It's OK. The orange flavor is not very artificial, which is good, but it also is fairly generic -- I believe they did not want to overwhelm the coconut flavor, which is still discernable. I love the flavor of orange and dark chocolate.
I will say that the candies are shaped differently - short cylinders -- and that shape means they are more likely to crack if mishandled.
Still, I think it's a worthy addition for Halloween, with the Princeton colors, as it were.

Of all the LE Mounds/AJ I've tried, the orange was one of the best. The worst by far was the passion fruit. So bad I nearly spit it out. My friend didn't dare try it after my reaction. And a few minutes later I almost took another bite just to see if it was really that bad (I resisted). If I remember correctly it tasted sort of like how old lady perfume smells. It was really bad.
I love the bright orange insides of the orange Mounds.
AirHeads! A strange and wonderful testure, intense fruit (goodness knows what kind) flavor and kids LOVE 'em.
Don't you mean "What did you buy and planned to give to the kids....... but are now willing to confess that you've already devoured?"
M & M fun packs
I also bought Playdoh but haven't eaten it! LOL

I use the I-don't-like-'em-so-I-won't-eat-'em approach to Halloween candy shopping: Skittles.
And this year I added the if-I-have-'em-left-over-they'll-make-good-bribes category: Mini Tootsie Pops. Good for 5 minutes' peace in any checkout line, anywhere.
