- Read Whither Halloween Candy? to find out how and why Halloween became the candy holiday
- Read to Laxatives and the End of Trick or Treating to find out why we're so scared of Halloween candy poisoners
- Read Candy and Halloween Parties Before 1920 to see just how little manufactured candy was included in the festivities. (Parents trying to cut down on Halloween candy use can tell their children they're just following tradition!)
Dr. Kawash has also just put up a post about candy experiments. Thanks for helping to share the idea!
