In this video, we count down the things you really don’t want to get trick-or-treating — when you’re a kid who just wants good candy.

We’ve got an 11 Points Countdown Halloween special for you today (and by that I mean it’s a Halloween topic and my co-host wore a Christmas sweater as a costume).

I’m joined by host/comedian Erin Darling to count down the results of a poll on the 11 worst things to get trick-or-treating on Halloween. It’s a vague flashback to a written list I did on that topic four years ago.

As always, if you enjoy the episode, please do take a moment to subscribe to the YouTube channel. I thank you in advance.

Here are the full results of the poll…

  1. Religious pamphlets
  2. Apples (and other fruit)
  3. Lecture on how you’re too old to be trick-or-treating
