What Will Your Favorite Authors Be Giving Out To Trick or Treaters?

Happy Halloween

What will your favorite authors be giving out to trick or treaters?*

Author Halloween Candy

Abbi Glines: “Two of my kids are allergic to peanuts, so we keep it peanut-free and hand out rice Krispy treats and twizzlers!”

Colleen Hoover: “I hand out Diet Pepsi (my beverage of choice) and candy bars.”

William Kent Krueger: “I typically hand out what I’d want if I still trick-or-treated: little candy bars.  I’m especially fond of Snickers, Baby Ruths, and Butterfingers. My usual method of distribution is one for each of the kids standing on my porch, and one for myself.  Boy, do I love Halloween!”

John Lescroart: “It’s all about nuts and chocolate — Reese’s peanut butter cups, Almond Joys, and peanut M&Ms!!! Yum.”

Jamie McGuire: “We don’t hand out candy. We are the trick or treaters!”

Jodi Picoult“Snickers, Three Musketeers, and Twix minis.  But we live on a dirt road and frankly the last time we had a trick or treater was about 20 years ago, because the houses are a mile or so between each other.  So usually I wind up eating all the candy.”

K.A. Robinson: “I’m actually not. I’m taking my son out instead. :) (He’s a dinosaur this year. Just don’t tell him that, he thinks he’s a dragon.)”

Buddy Valastro AKA the Cake Boss: “Chocolate -An assortment of  M&M’s, Snickers, Hershey’s”

Jennifer Weiner: “I am giving out full-size Snickers bars, because I am trying to buy the love of neighboring children!”
