How to Trick or Treat as an Adult

Most people think that Treat or Treating is only meant for kids, but I am here to tell you that adults can do it too. I know I’m not the only one who has a sweet tooth on Halloween. So, here are 3 steps that YOU can take in order to satisfy that sweet tooth craving.

Step 1: Find a kid.

Believe it or not, if you are Trick or Treating alone as an adult, people are most likely going to avoid you. No one feels safe when an adult is dressed up and walking around alone, at night. SO, your best bet is to grab your kid and take them along. Don’t have your own kid? That’s totally fine! Just ask your brother or sister to borrow their kid for Trick or Treating. Again, don’t have a niece or nephew? That’s totally fine too! Grab a younger cousin or any family member under the age of 10 and take them out to hunt candy for you…. I mean them.

Step 2: Dress Up

And by dressing up, I mean… dress yourselves up to the point that no one will recognize you. That way you can get your kid to take double the amount of candy and have you two book it out of there and on to the next house. People will be talking about it but won’t know who it was, so you’ll be in the clear. The more candy the better for your sweet tooth craving.

Step 3: The Cavity Talk

We all knew this was coming. Your kid sits down and goes through all of their candy and doesn’t want to share it with anyone. Now, what do you do? You give them a long lecture about cavities and how it can make their teeth fall out. That way the kid is more than willing to give you half their candy to avoid it.

BADABING, BADABOOM… you now have your candy. With a little bit of effort, excitement, and a dash of manipulation, you too can satisfy your sweet tooth craving this Halloween.
