This would have gotten your house egged in the 70s

Imagine just this item being teleported back to an suburban northern US neighborhood in 1978. Your Mom thinks tjis is a healthy snack and does this. Your Dad power washes the house the next Saturday, picks up the TP on Sunday after church.

Now, seems likely.

#GetKrafty this Halloween with string cheese ghosts.

(We tried to make them spooky, but they just came out looking adorable.) https://t.co/vyhCbV0Rly

3. That's worse than handing out apples or raisins

Chocolate or bust. My grandkids get far too much candy and itís up to me to make sure they donít get too much of a sugar high.

4. Yep! But I sure wouldn't mind eating one of those now....

But back in the 60's and 70's when I was a kid what I really thought was nifty was "cigarette gum". Imagine if folks gave that out to kids now!

9. Well, Dads' Phillip Morris regular had a red tip.

But, thinking back, hard on it, 10 cents seems like alot of money in 62/63 for a five year old to have for candy.

6. Not as bad as the Herbalife nutrition bars my kids got one year.

I suspect that was the end of Herbalife in that household, I imagined a disgruntled spouse handing out the remaining stock to unsuspecting children.

We had other neighbors who were some kind of fundamentalist Christian. They would lure children in with full size candy bars and then tell them that Halloween was evil, handing out religious pamphlets along with the candy. These pamphlets would be scattered all over the neighborhood the next morning. This house was a favorite destination for the sorts of smart-mouthed 11-15 year olds who used to read MAD magazine.

7. These ghosts

String cheese ghosts are a very common class party treat. I would not give them out to trick or treaters.
