Every year I try to make popcorn balls for Halloween treats. The only reason I do this is because when I was growing up one of my neighbors made flavored popcorn balls that tasted better than any store bought candy. My mom never thought twice about letting us eat them, even though she had never seen my her kitchen.

Homemade goodies are not as acceptable as they used to be. People are worried about germs, allergies and more. No matter how careful you are during the holidays your kids at one point or another are going to be given homemade goodies from someone that you might now.
