Halloween is the biggest candy holiday of the year and the one night that parents encourage their kids to take candy from strangers. Sure the dressing up part is fun, but everyone knows the best part is arriving home to see what kind of candy you scored from trick-or-treating. What if you dumped out that 10 pound bag with hopes of seeing chocolate bars and Skittles, only to find healthy alternatives to the traditional Halloween candy? WWLTV shared a video on Thursday, October 31, 2013 to show the reaction of some kids trying some healthy Halloween treats.
The YouTube video created by Crest shows kids dressed in costume, who are anxious to get some Halloween candy. When they are told they would be trying new veggie inspired treats, their excitement diminishes. Being good sports, they start to sample asparagus flavored veggie chews, artichoke buttercups, healthy cupcakes, and Nori pops. The host continues to promote these treats, but these cute kids react just as expected.
"It taste like poopy pinata," is just one of the many opinions these kids had on the treats they were told would be replacing traditional Halloween candy.
"This is the most worst I have ever tasted," said one little boy.
One of the little girls at the table tried to be polite by saying it was "kinda good and kinda bad," as another said hers taste like "poo poo".
Halloween wouldn't be Halloween without candy. However, not all parents will allow their kids to go home and binge after trick-or-treating tonight. Parents can swap the candy for a toy or there are candy buyback programs offered by some dentist offices. Dentists will pay your kids for each pound of candy they bring in and send it to troops stationed overseas. While most pay a dollar a pound, Picacho Family Dental in Yuma, Arizona is paying $5 a pound for the first 200 pounds of candy they receive.
