It’s no secret that when kids go trick or treating most of them know which houses give out the best candy, and make sure to hit them early so they don’t run out. But now one person has called out their neighbors for what they consider bad candy choices, and the post has quickly gone viral.
The Twitter account @BestofNextDoor, which calls out funny posts on Nextdoor app message boards, shared a post from an person who is not happy with the candy given out by some neighbors, especially since the poster deems then unacceptable for their “affluent” neighborhood of Rancho Cucamonga, California.
“Over the last three Halloweens, I’ve noticed candy stock has become more and more diluted with cheap candy,” the person writes, “I don’t know if this trend is the result of the higher bills or even the new constructions, but cheap candy has somehow infiltrated our community for Halloween and it has to stop,"
The person insists “standard full or KING size candy” is the only acceptable candy to be given out, adding, Dum Dums, Smarties and Jolly Ranchers are a no, as are peeps, with the poster noting, “No one, and I mean NO ONE, wants those terrible marshmallow tragedies." They also suggest those who bought “fun size” bars don’t need to return them, but they’ll have to give each kid four to six to make up the difference.
The post quickly went viral, receiving more than 3,000 comments, and while some found the post funny, others thought it was offensive, while many suspect a kid may have been behind the rant in order to get better candy.Check out the full post and some of the reactions below:
