NORTH CAROLINA CITY 'BANS' UNPOPULAR CANDY AHEAD OF HALLOWEEN
Remember when you just had to be happy with whatever landed in your trick-or-treat bag on Halloween? Well, that's not how it's going to work in the City of High Point, North Carolina. That's because the city has issued a playful "ban" on old-school taffies for October 31st.
Last week the city posted on their official Facebook page, "Alright everybody, we're giving you a one-week notice as you prepare for trick-or-treaters to remind y'all that by the order of High Point Emperor of Acceptable Candy (it's a real thing), these are banned. No one likes them, don't give them out." The photo they shared also shows what is sometimes referred to as Peanut Butter Kisses.
After a lively debate on social media, the Facebook account followed up yesterday with "There seems to be a little confusion from some of our out of town friends: this.is.clearly.a.joke. We're just saying maybe you won't be the most popular house on the street if you hand these out."
