Tell us your favorite story about Halloween candy

Pumpkins, ghosts and goblins are nice, but candy's really what makes Halloween so deliciously naughty.

Remember trick-or-treating as a kid? Oh, the excitement of knocking on neighbors' doors for free candy. You might still remember the families that handed out the good stuff -- chocolate bars, most likely -- and the evil ones that pushed the dreaded toothbrush. And who can forget the feeling of sizing up all your loot at the end of the night? Sheer bliss.

We want to hear your favorite stories about Halloween candy. From trick-or-treating snafus to favorite candies of yesteryear, the tales can be about you or your children. We'll run our favorite stories in the paper, and run all submissions online. If you have fun Halloween photos, please send those along, too. E-mail your stories and photos by Tuesday to or, or send them to Features Department, The Island Packet, P.O. Box 5727, Hilton Head Island, SC 29938. Be sure to include your name, where you're from and contact information. Please identify people in photos and the approximate year each photo was taken.
