Well bless their little hearts. I can rest easy knowing that having my annual “Snickers fest” Halloween night will be in opposition to union wishes. Yummy!

I buy KitKats because I LIKE them. People are such tools.

I am waiting for pretzel M&M’s to come out in Halloween bags. Then I can *ahem* buy them for the treaters...

I buy the candy I want.

Now, there are some winners missing:

Where is Reeses?
Heath or at least Skor?
Almond Joy?!

These are all Hershey products. Are these the ones made in Mexico?

KIT KAT is nothing more than crack for adults. Hooked as a kid. Still hooked.

Reminds me of the joke about the Union organizer that would not go into any bordello that was not a union shop. Found only one in the whole town. Puts down three times the going rate to show his support for union shops, and asks for the best lady in the house.

He is presented with a shady lady who is ugly and in her 60s. He asks for a younger woman.

“You have to take her,” says the madam. “She has seniority.”

You’d think there would be more suckers on the union approved list.

I don’t see the Whatchamacallit... Good to see my favorite is not on the Union Approved list. It’s a shame about the other Hershey products here.

Little Debbie’s cookies (etc) are banned too (non union company)

And for pete’s sake, don’t but your “approved” candy at Walmart lest you want your knees broken.

I don’t see Reese’s on the list. Time to lay in a good supply of ‘em (for myself, not the trick-or-treaters ;) ).

I don't participate in Halloween, but I have seen the pretzel M&M's in their little blue bags...'sources' confirm there are 5-7 in each little bag.

The BEST time to lay in a ‘personal supply’ is the morning of November 1st.

Aha! I always suspected Halloween was a Communist holiday and this proves it.

The fact that it teaches children to dress like ghouls, take candy from people who earned it and punish those who don't give them what they feel "entitled" to by TPing their houses wasn't at least a clue

I’d you think Kit Kat is good, you news to eat a Twix. They are much better.
