How do you NOT know the stick?

Of course we adults and parents benefit greatly from Halloween. Need a little something sweet? Sure, we head for the kids stash. For the past week Salena and I have been rifling through the kids pumpkin heads looking for "our" favorites. On one of our invasions I come across a fun size Chick-O-Stick and this is how it went:

Me: Oh man, look a Chick-O-Stick. I haven't had one of these in ages.

S: What's a Chick-O-Stick?

Me: Are you kidding me? You have never had a Chick-O-Stick?

S: I've never even heard of them.



Me: Oh, they ARE gooooooood!

S: Really? What do they taste like, chicken?

Ok. Now. Please tell me what kind of a freak would pass out chicken flavored Halloween candy? If they did? Their house wouldn't survive the year. The neighborhood kids would burn it to the ground before the next candy fest!

I will NEVER be bringing my kids to her house trick or treating, that is for sure. Does it taste like chicken? Good LORD!!

I used to love those chick O-stickes. I was just ramming through our bowl looking for some candy...haven't wanted any in a long time that didn't have splender as an ingredient.
