Trick-or-treaters share the weirdest items given this spooky season

Sweets would have been fine! Trick or treaters share their WEIRDEST Halloween hauls on social media – from bath bombs and dental floss picks to a tin of sausages

  • Trick-or-treaters were given some very unusual items on Halloween this year 
  • Katie Cunningham, from Washington, handed out Play-Doh and glow sticks
  • Matt Heller, from Chicago, Illinois, decided to give out coupons instead of candy

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of sheer panic when you hear that first knock on the door at Halloween and realise you’ve already eaten all the sweets you bought.  

You’ll grab anything to avoid being tricked by having toilet paper or silly string chucked all over your house and garden, but the first thing you see isn’t always treat appropriate.

This Halloween, Twitter users have been sharing the very bizarre items they’ve been handing out – or been given – as they made their way around the neighbourhood.

While one health-conscious person received a toothbrush alongside their sweets, another found themselves handing out 2p coins.

Here, FEMAIL shows off a selection of some of the hilarious items being given out in 2018. . .
