    I only had one sibling, so here was our candy trading method.

    1. Dump out all the candy into your own pile.
    2. Take out all the really good stuff and put it back into your bag.
    3. Push what remains into a combined pile with sibling, and then take turns selecting pieces from that pile you might feel like eating someday, until nobody wants what’s left.
    4. Give that pile to parents.

    And I remember receiving some truly dreadful candy as a child. Those orange and black wrapped taffy chunks, something called “monster candy” that was a piece of sweetened cardboard in a box, Necco wafers, and starlight mints. Really adults, you couldn’t come up with anything better than starlight mints? Weren’t you ever a child?

    Although starlight mints were still better than the religious tracts my kids got given one year. Sheesh.

    Frikkin’ hilarious!

    As a kid in the ’50s, we almost always had good stuff. It wasn’t until about 62-65 when the crap started to hit.

    I hate to say it, but I *LOVE* dark chocolate. I always got my fill at Hallowe’en…
