The Perfect Halloween Candy to Handout

shutterstock_324890210

On your way home from Link Ford Minong, whether you just had your Ford serviced or just picked up your new vehicle, be sure to stop by the store to pick up some Halloween candy. Make sure you have enough so that you don’t run out. You can always freeze extra candy if you don’t think you’ll eat it fast enough.

What is the Perfect Halloween Candy?

The perfect Halloween candy depends on your tastes. Since you want to make sure you don’t run out, you’ll want to buy a bunch, so the perfect candy is something you like to eat, just in case you have leftovers. Since it will most likely be cool, you don’t have to worry about the candy melting, so grab all the chocolate you want.

Big Bars or Small Bars

The best thing you can get is the smaller bars. This allows you to buy several different kinds so you can offer a good mix by just grabbing two or three for each child. And, this gives you a variety for yourself if you have candy left over.

Sealed Candy

Don’t choose something like a large bag of M&Ms that are not individually wrapped. It might be tempting to make something with unwrapped candy, but it will just get thrown away by parents since they won’t be able to tell whether it’s been tampered with. Make sure any candy you get for Halloween is sealed. You can pick up large bags of assorted candy at most drug stores and many grocery stores. Each piece is individually wrapped and won’t be wasted.

Visit Link Ford of Minong

If you are taking your kids out for Halloween and are driving to a trunk or treat event or are driving the kids around the neighborhood because it’s cold, you’ll want to make sure your car is working properly, especially the heater. Call Link Ford Minong to make an appointment for maintenance and to have your vehicle’s HVAC system checked before Halloween.
