Top Ten Ways to Get Lots of Candy on Halloween

Halloween...its the most wonderful time of the year, oh wait, that's Christmas, never mind. But Halloween is coming up in a few days, and if you're going trick-or-treating, you want to get lots of candy. Take a look at this list for tips.

The Top Ten

1 Go to the first house and get your candy, then change your costume and come back

A classic, you go to a house with really good candy, then you go back home and change your costume, and come back to that house (make sure to change your voice every time you come back), and make sure that the people don't recognize you. Do it as many times as you want. - Catacorn

That would be pretty tiresome, though. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Holy crap, this is BRILLIANT. Thanks Catacorn. - TwilightKitsune

Wow! - Neonco31

2 Pretend you're a doctor getting candy for the sick

I know this sounds cruel, but I saw this on an odd1sout video, you dress up as a doctor and put on your local children's hospital logo on the shirt, and give a speech of why you need candy. Most of the time, the adults will give you a large handful of candy. - Catacorn

3 Take all the candy in the 'please take one' bowls

I would SO do this!

Nah, I wouldn't do that. Whenever I went to go trick-or-treat, when I saw the bowl that says, "Please take one", I would always do so. Though to be honest, I think I was occasionally allowed to have one more piece of candy one time. I don't know, it's been a long time since I did this. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Make sure nobody's watching and dump all the candy in your bag. - Catacorn

No this is bullying to other kids - lol2016

4 Knock on the door and pull out your gun

That sounds kind of violent. It might make things a little worse.

Don't do this other wise they'll probably call the police and its just rude

Or just a Nerf gun...we don't want to hurt anyone here.

You'll have to hope they have lollipops at the police station if you get caught with wielding a gun. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 If you're too old, say "I'm trick-or-treating for my injured sibling"

Works like a charm. - Catacorn

6 Start early

Usually, the best candy is given towards the beginning. - Catacorn

Duh. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

7 Go buy some at the discount store

The easiest way to get candy. - Catacorn

8 Attack the "killer clowns"

I'm not sure if it'll work, but have one of your friends dress-up as a clown and you go and "attack them" (make sure that there is no police officer around! ) in front of a bunch of neighbors, if anyone tries to help, tell them to stay back. Let your friend crawl away "injured". And maybe, the neighbors will give you extra candy for your bravery. - Catacorn

9 Don't wear a cheap costume

Don't be like Billy from The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. He dressed up as a mummy using toilet paper to make his costume, and for that, he got a rock instead of candy at one house. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

If you wear something cheap, you'll receive less candy. - Catacorn

My costume was all homemade, lol. - Catacorn

My costume all accessories
almost was 70 dollars

10 Take the entire bowl from the adult's hand and run

That would be very disrespectful to the adults and for every kids who want candy while trick or treating.

That would not be a good idea. The adults would get very upset.

I do this all the time
