My best Halloween costume was a home-made, foil-covered Cylon (which looked very little like the real thing, above, to be honest).
Oh, those candies with the toxic red dyes!
My favorite candy was everything that didn’t have coconut or nuts, therefore I hated it when people gave out Mounds or Almond Joy candy bars—blech.
It usually took me just a single day to eat all the candy. (I shudder to think of it nowadays! What did I do to my body and my metabolism, doing that?)
Kids today are missing out on all the scary candy ingredients, like those toxic red dyes!
