While I was growing up, we lived in a neighborhood that was packed with trick-or-treaters. One year we had so many, so early in the night that we ran out of candy and didn't want to shut off the light just yet. So my parents started handing out canned food.
Not sure if it was one of my neighbors from back when that reported that to Reddit, but among the list of the craziest things people have gotten while trick-or-treating was canned food.
1. A caramel-covered onion.
2. Cans of green beans and corn.
3. A documentary on the Milwaukee Brewers.
4. Shoe laces.
5. A brisket sandwich.
8. Dog food.
9. A mixtape.
10. A bar of Lever 2000 soap.
