That sounds like it would be a crumbled mess by the end of the night honestly. I'd just buy a small-medium bag of candy. If there's leftovers, I'm pretty sure there's at least one program that will accept it to send to our soldiers overseas.

I want them to have friends who like them for them, not for what they can give them. I'm not saying I'm solid on handing out the fortune cookies, if lots of kids don't like them, so be it, I'll find something else, but that isn't going to be something that plays into my decision.AnnieArk wrote: ↑Fri Oct 18, 2019 3:38 pmMistressMonster wrote: ↑Fri Oct 18, 2019 3:31 pmI would like to add that your house will become very unpopular extremely fast in future Halloweens if you do give out fortune cookies. I remember growing up, and my dad insisting we give out those mini boxes of raisins. We'd have tons of leftovers, and very few TOT'ers. Don't be that house.
Being "that" house would not be good for her children's reputation with their friends. No child wants their friends to think his parents are odd.
I didn't say they wouldn't be your kids friends. I'm saying it's something kids will think odd because it is odd. Don't embarrass your kids needlessly.

I wouldn't start off my first Halloween in a new area with only fortune cookies. Now if you had candy and fortune cookies and allowed the kids to choose then you can appease the kids AND get a decent idea of how well the fortune cookies go over and adjust accordingly for next year.
My kids would rate the fortune cookie right up there with the dentist down the street that gives out toothbrushes and floss
