Despite the rotating cast of pop culture costumes that shift from year to year, Halloween is pretty predictable. Eager trick-or-treaters knock on your door, you open up, they say “trick or treat,” you reward them with candy, they leave.
Lather, rinse, repeat.
Some of us go the extra mile with our scary decorations while some of us just leave a bucket of candy out front with a sign that reads, “Please take just one.” But what if this Halloween we did things a little differently? What if, in the spirit of Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, we handed out something the kids want just as much as candy?
What could that be, you ask. Duh! It’s tacos! It may seem impractical, but just hear us out.
They’re more nutritious
It’s 2015, and we’re more health conscious than ever before. Candy is chock full of sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, trans fats and more badness. Sure, peanut butter cups taste good, but they’re not good for you. Enter: tacos. A more nutritional alternative to those candy bars and lollipops your kiddos are used to.
They’re more delicious
Tacos have so much going on: meat, cheese, tomatoes, sour cream, jalapenos and more! When you put candy next to ’em, the comparison almost seems unfair.
They’re more filling
It doesn’t matter if you’re 5 or 55 you shouldn’t eat candy for dinner. If you get tacos in your bag instead of sweets, you’ll have dinner covered. Think of Halloween as one giant carryout order, collecting more and more of your meal with each house you visit.
It’s a better “treat”
Let’s be real. The majority of houses give out crummy candy. Halloween is becoming more of a “trick” and less of a “treat” every year. Handing out tacos would easily solve this. Let’s put the “treat” back on top. What do you say?
You’ll be the coolest house on the block
Not that you care what everyone thinks, but there’s something to be said for being “that cool house” that handed out tacos. Don’t be “that lame house” that handed out raisins.
Who knows? You could just start a taco revolution and get the entire neighborhood on board. Just the thought of it seems eerie-sistable!
