Last year I began a fun candy-related tradition before Halloween that involved a quick jaunt to a local Asian market. Instead of my usual trip to the grocery store to procure individual packages of Skittles (which do have their place mind you!), I decided it would be fun to help my kids choose some more exotic fare--Japanese candies. The miniature sizes and funky packaging were tough to resist!
I found both inexpensive, tiny packages of sweets as well as larger boxes of individually portioned treats that served our purpose well. As predicted their classmates were thrilled with the unique treats and that made my kids feel great--it's always nice to gift someone something they truly love. I'm definitely planning on pressing "repeat" on this one!
If you don't have access to an Asian market locally, try this online source instead. Happy Halloween!
