Can you believe it's almost Fall here in the Northern Hemisphere???

In anticipation of the cooler weather and changing of the leaves I propose a Trick or Treat Goodie Bag Swap.

Pretend you're a kid and knock on your swap partner's door and yell "Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet, Give me Something Good to Eat!" You don't have to wear a costume, be ashamed that you're "too old to be trick or treating", or using your kid (or niece, nephew, next door neighbor) as an excuse!

List your favorite sweet treats, your partner will send you a goodie bag! Simple enough?

Remember to add a Halloween feel to your package, this will be like trick or treating for adults! Make sure your partner receives before Halloween!

International because it would be fun to get candy from other countries! Please no postage whiners, everyone will spend. Newbies are OK, just make sure you've got a profile filled out. Required to spend between $10 to $15.

DON'T FORGET TO LIST YOUR FAVORITES BELOW (and any aversions/allergies)

OHHHH I hope I get an international partner. I would love something native to your country. No chocolate covered bugs, though!!! I don't have any candy allergies, so bring it on. I like dark chocolate with interesting things in it, like chili or coffee beans. I love twizzlers, black licorice (Barrett's is my favorite, if my partner is from the UK), anything exotic or different. Chocolate covered jellies are okay, too. Surprise me!

This sounds like fun!! My only restriction is no high fructose corn syrup. I'm not a big fan of dark chocolate, but I will eat it. Apart from that, I'm pretty easy to please.

Delilah02 08/22/2007 #

I'm not too picky when it comes to candy... I love chocolate and especially dark chocolate! I have no known allergies (woohoo!) and the only candy that I can not stand is black licorice... lol This is gonna be an awome swap!

Aerochik 08/22/2007 #

We love all candies here, not the traditional vandy corns though. My favs are gummies and sugar coated marshmallow things.

LOLA 08/22/2007 #

I am open to try all sorts of candy. I swoon over Belgium and other good quality chocolates. I also like chocolate covered gummy bears and hot tamales but please surprise me!

semfox74 08/31/2007 #

As I am originally from Vermont, but now live in Scotland I would love some classic US candy, like hersheys kisses, swedish fish (American??!!), Tootsie pops. My absolute FAVOURITE are cherry twizzlers. I hope I get a non-uk partner as I can load them up with our best! Also, LOVE sour things, wacky flavoured Gum, butterfinger and all things peanut butter flavoured.

Kristin 09/11/2007 #

Oh, the candy corn is only good if it is Brock's brand!

NadKnitBlog 09/16/2007 #

I love Halloween and I'd LOVE to try any traditional Halloween candy that is not liquorice. I'd love to try anything. I'm really into dark choc and peanuts. No allergies, I'm vegetarian so no to chocolate covered ants and beetles! ;-)

semfox74 09/16/2007 #

I would love traditional US candy like tootsie pops, twizzlers, candy corn etc. I would also love any candy that is from your country and not from mine (uk)! Love any colour of gum except mint, licorice, sour, gummy, fruity but not citrusy, and especially hersheys!

SassyBird 09/17/2007 #

ohhh, goody, I love this swap! :)

I love white chocolate so white chocolate in any form is perfect for me! also like jolly ranchers (green apple and watermelon are faves!) wintergreen lifesavers, peanut butter m&ms, really any of the american candy bars...

Please no black licorice or sour sweets!

If my partner is from the UK - here are some of my favourites: milky bar (white chocolate) buttons, sherbet lemons, wine gums, jelly tots, refreshers (my husband is from the UK so he'll probably end up stealing my sweets!)

I LOVE cadbury chocolate bars from the UK, Mr. Big, Velvet Crumble (which is Australian, I think)

I also love abba zabba bars from the west, and southwestern US, as we are unable to get them in MN.

I don't have any allergies, but I do not like dark, or white chocolate very much.

I am hoping that the stores soon will start selling some candy with hallween theme!! It would be nice to send to my partner...although I have a feeling they won't...I think last year they started selling them about a week or so before Halloween...

dolphingirl 10/ 4/2007 #

I love chocolate covered almonds, Nestle Crunch, white chocolate, odd and unusual candies and candies in cool containers. I love anything Halloween :)

Irene 10/11/2007 #

This sounds like a great swap. Unfortunately, a known flaker has joined, and I'm a bit nervous that I'll end up with her as my partner. See this thread: http://www.swap-bot.com/forums/topic/2623

This isn't the only thread she's mentioned in. I run a Yahoo group in which she left owing swaps. Just thought as the host, you'd want a heads up.

nejxr25 12/ 5/2007 #

looks like i got the flaker as no parcel ever turned up

jennyknitstoo 12/10/2007 #

Nejxr25, me too... :(
