I'm in big trouble

I always do this:


The plan was to give a bag to each kid that shows up. But I bought too much. As is usual around here, I got just one group of five kids. (Could be worse; last year I didn't get anyone.)

It's now past 8:00 and I don't expect I'll get any more. So what am I going to do with all that?

1 Opposite problem this year for us.  Last year, there were hardly any kids.  This year, we already burn through 1 Costco bag of candy.  Fortunately, it's 8:15PM, the crowd should thin out.

2 I had dozens of little monsters, as usual, so I went through about 45 pounds of candy. Sadly, I bought 55 pounds...

3 Bad year here... A very cold day, so they started early, finished early.

4 I overstocked, but then, I usually include a piece or two in my lunch, so I'm set.  I usually count before I set it out so I can count afterwards and see how many kids came, and fail to use that data the next year. It's usually in excess of 100 kids though.

Most kids don't trick-or treat apartment complexes, either for lack of access or just all the stairs.

If your final question is a rare call for suggestions: Food bank?

Does the apartment reception desk maintain a candy bowl?

6 Send 'em to some Marines in Afghanistan?

7 It was a rhetorical question.
