The Cities Where You’ll Rake in the Most Candy on Halloween
As kids planning our suburban trick-or-treat route, my friends, siblings and I knew where we needed to go: The Big Houses. Those were the ones with full-size candy bars (and most certainly not popcorn balls or wrapped pennies). It wasn’t foolproof — sometimes the owners of The Big Houses weren’t home on Halloween, or they gave out fun-size candy bars like the average American homeowner — but it was better than having no plan. After all, you only have so many hours to fill that plastic pumpkin with as many scrumptious treats as possible, and you don’t want to waste it wandering through a neighborhood that hasn’t proved its worth as a trick-or-treat destination.
