After inspecting the candy selection, the BF pointed out that "the kids are going to laugh when they see Almond Joys."
BF: "Allison, you bought Almond Joys."
Me: "I freaking love Almond Joys and we needed more candy because you ate it all week!"
BF: "Noooooooooooo. The kids are going to know we give shitty candy. We can't be known as the shitty candy house.
Me: thinking, "really who gets this worked up over candy. "No way. Candy is candy. They won't know the difference."

As the BF started to hand out candy, I didn't believe this "Almond Joy" theory. I rushed to the door to hand out candy to an 8-year-old army sargent and asked, " I have bet going with my boyfriend. Do you like Almond Joys?" The little army sargent said, "Um....not today. I really don't like Almond Joys." Hmmmmm I thought. "Well, here is a Kit Kat. Happy Halloween!"
Because I wasn't fully satisfied with the little Army brat's answer, I decided to ask a few more kids. A zombie and football player approached and I asked them the same question again and they looked at me with these eyes like, "this lady is crazy and I'm never going to this house again."
Needless to say, Almond Joys are not a popular Halloween candy. So says the neighborhood kids and the BF, who is really just a big kid after all.
