Halloween night is upon us and it may be one of the greatest holidays to celebrate because for one night we’re all supposed to act like kids and enjoy the spooky season. For children, it gives them the opportunity to go throughout Kalamazoo area neighborhoods and collect free candy from neighbors. For adults, it’s a chance to prove that you haven’t lost all sense of good taste, but handing out some of the best candy around.

But when your child comes home from trick or treating tonight it’s important that you check their candy bag because there could be a potentially serious situation that may lurk within the pile of delicious candy. Too many times has this happened which has resulted in horrible things.

Your child may be anxious to check their candy bag but the first thing you need to do is inspect it to make sure that nobody left them any disgusting candies.

That’s right, you won’t have to look for edible marijuana candies, because nobody in their right mind would give those away for free to little kids, and the whole idea that strangers are poisoning kids on Halloween has been debunked.

But it’s crucial that you check your child’s candy bag for things like circus peanuts, candy corn, Necco Wafers, wax cola bottles, Bit-o-Honey, and Mary Janes.

These candies should have been outlawed a long time ago, and by leaving your child’s candy bag unchecked open them up to the risk of putting this crap in their stomach. It’s time to stand up and do some real parenting and make sure that these candies never see the light of day again.
