A meteorite dealer that I know (on-line) once had a pile of small, ancient orangish (from caliche) Sahara meteorites. The real deal, but so badly weathered that they had little to offer to science or to serious collectors. So he planned to bag them up along with an identification card and give them out to trick-or-treaters. It would be a real-world “I got a rock.” Don’t know if he went through with it, though.
You forgot paprika.
And only a fool would give kids raw eggs on Halloween!

I like to put odd stuff in my candy jar when I hand out candy. Usually it’s the plastic bugs and such so the kids look at it and get creeped out. One year I threw in a couple of golf balls and one kid pick it out and took it. I was dressed up and not moving so I don’t think he could tell if I was real or not and was too scared to look at what he was taking. He was around 10 or so and not some real young kid who I would have given candy too.
