Trick-or-treating is a favorite tradition and pastime among many Americans. We all remember dressing up in Halloween costumes, going from door to door with huge pillowcases, requesting candy from friendly neighbors with the simple phrase “Trick or Treat.” Then we eventually reached a certain age where we were considered “too old” to go trick or treating. That’s why when many of us become parents, Halloween becomes an excuse to go through our children’s candy and keep a few sweet treats for ourselves. Because the truth is, no matter how old you are, you never grow out of your sweet tooth.
