Leftover Halloween Treats

For many years, we've been giving regular size candy bars for Halloween trick-or-treaters.  Unfortunately, we tended to overbuy and had significant amounts of candy left over.  While we liked the candy, we didn't particularly like eating lots of it.  It would take six months for us to eat through the leftover candy.
For this year, we assumed that we would need to eat leftover treats. So we bought treats that we would be OK with eating: pretzels.   Of course, pretzels weren't as big a hit with trick-or-treaters.  One little girl gave her pretzels to her brother after seeing them.  No one ever gave away a regular size candy bar. :-)
Once again, we overestimated the number of trick-or-treaters and have about 30 packages of pretzels left.   However, we'll be able to finish the extra treats with no problem this year.
