Five best Halloween candies to give out -- don't be the cheap house!

You really, really don't want to have the reputation of being the worst Halloween candy-giving house on the block. So don't hand out Tootsie Rolls, candy corn or those nefarious orange-and-black-wrapped chewy things. And don't even think about gifting trick-or-treaters with shwag like toothbrushes or anything homemade -- unless you want parents to brand your house the creepy-roofies-call-cops-house. Being a Halloween Grinch could get your house egged, your windows smeared with tapioca pudding and your trees festooned with two-ply toilet tissue.

We're here to help with our list of the five best Halloween candies to give out. Seriously, no little boxes of raisins.
