But as I can attest, sometimes life gets in the way and you forget to buy candy ahead of time (or you eat the Halloween candy you picked up early). So, if you find yourself without a good sugar stash on October 30, here are some tips to save a little bit of cash on some decent candy.
If you need a lot of candy this year, there are also deals to be had online. On Amazon, for example, you can get 180 pieces of candy (including Skittles, Starburst, and Lifesavers) for $16. And at Candy Warehouse, you can get a 330-piece bag of Twizzlers and Jolly Ranchers for $33.

They sell sweets, but bite in deep enough and you will taste the truth. That's what I learned when I spent a summer on the streets following candy kids. One boy told me he was selling candy for the Just Say No program at his school. When I called his school, I learned there was no such program. A girl said she was selling boxed candy for her basketball team. That was a lie. A group of kids said they were with a nonprofit organization founded to keep kids off the street. The group didn't exist.
The crew leaders tell the kids what to say and sometimes give them laminated identification cards to show customers. They pick the kids up by van early in the morning, and drop them off in malls or neighborhoods far from home. The van returns for the kids after they've worked a 12-hour day. Often the children go without food, water or a bathroom break during their shift. There's no supervision and authorities are aware of cases in which candy kids were mugged or raped while working.
One of the groups I investigated gave the children 40 cents for each $2.50 candy they sold. The bars wholesaled for 35 cents, so the crew leaders made a tasty profit. If the children showed up late to meet the van or goofed off on the ride home, the crew leader docked their meager pay. Many candy crews tout the fact that they reward the children with excursions to water slides and theme parks. My investigation showed those excursions either didn't happen or the kids had to pay their own way using their candy earnings.
So what's the law and how can this happen? Each state has its own child labor laws. Typically states allow children to begin working between ages 12 and 16, but there's little enforcement. I met kids on the street who were as young as seven. Police departments aren't trained or equipped to tackle this problem and labor departments are chronically understaffed. Plus if authorities do crack down, often candy crew leaders just move across state lines.
Ask questions. Ask the kids how much money they make off of each candy bar or box. Find out how they got to the spot where they approached you. If they say they're with a school, call up the school on your cell phone and check.
Be vigilant. If you see candy kids going door to door in your neighborhood, call the police and ask your neighbors to call too. When police realize citizens are upset about this child exploitation, they'll learn how to work with labor departments to stop it. 041b061a72
