Seeking a Halloween Candy Alternative?
FortiFX has You Covered!
Halloween is many a child’s favorite holiday, but it can often be a parental nightmare.
We love to see their eyes grow big and their smiles super wide as they say, “Trick-or-Treat.”

What’s The Deal With Candy on Halloween, Anyway?
The short and sweet answer? For larger cities to save money!
Back in the 1930s, Halloween was mainly a holiday for young men to play pranks. Civic organizations came up with the ideas of costumes, candy, & other Halloween treats to basically ‘buy off’ children & distract them from their pranking.
(Some of these pranks started adding up and costing cities millions of dollars in damages!)
Shortly after this new trend began, WWII hit, and sugar in the US was rationed. These Halloween candy trends were put on a bleak pause, causing the candy industry to run WILD with pre-packaged candy once they realized that homemakers didn’t want to make their own sweets to pass out!
Imagine hand crafting EVERY PIECE of candy that you hand out on Halloween!

A Spookier Story
According to the History Channel, Halloween was a pagan holiday spent in costume to ward off ghosts!
Villagers would dress up, light bonfires to dance around, and sacrifice crops!
The spookiest part of this story is the Celtic people believed that on the day of Halloween, the boundaries between our world, and the world of the dead, made it easier for the spirits of the dead to visit our world!
The Coolest Mom
