Reese's is Halloween Favorite According to Redbox Survey

Halloween is such a fun holiday. It's all about candy and playing dress up. What's not to love about that?

Now that my kids are teens and older, they've taken over decorating. Our tradition is to order pizza for dinner and the boys spend several days putting up a carport-sized tent and turning it into a haunted house full of spooky and gory props with live people mixed in to jump out. The brave kids make their way in to retrieve the good candy. Suckers or smarties are the consolation for those who aren't brave enough to go in or who get part way in, but chicken out. You gotta take the tricks to get the treats.

My favorite treats are Reese's, Kit Kat, Snickers, Milky Way, Milk Duds and Almond Joy. How about you?
