OP/ED: What’s Really Lurking in Halloween Candy?

Oct. 30, 2023 /

It’s that time of year again. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp, football is on the television and the kids are anxiously awaiting that night when they don the attire of a favorite superhero or spooky character or whatever their creative hearts desire. As a parent, it also seems like that time of year to be bombarded with warnings about the candy my kids will inevitably acquire through the many events surrounding this popular holiday. Inspect for razor blades, needles, drugs, poisons. If it’s homemade throw it away. Examine the wrappers for pinholes or tears. The list goes on despite so few incidents being reported over the years. I am certainly not advocating for parents to let up. Be diligent. Check those wrappers and enjoy a few pieces of chocolate as a reward for the hard work of being a parent. And while you’re at it, check out the ingredients of those candies. Take an extra piece of chocolate for yourself, because this is no easy task.
