For the last day, one Halloween prank has been driving people out of their minds as it circulated Twitter.



Despite the prank having been circulating for some years now, it resurfaced via Mark Sparrow’s tweet earlier this week and has since gone viral, with many users wanting to attempt it for themselves, including serving these treats to those kids who come knocking without a costume.   But, this is the internet and a few people simply couldn’t resist pointing out the flaws in the plan.

Some have labelled Mark Sparrow’s joke ‘real evil’, but we have to admit that the origins of this one just don’t meet the criteria. These little snacks were originally created by a chocolatier in England and children loved them! One Twitter user had a MUCH more sinister trick to play: 



What do you think? Would you try this one? Share with us below.

  • That is indeed an evil, yet brilliant plan.


  • My daughter’s friend was telling me about this. We won’t be giving out treats to anyone that comes knocking. I’m not going to encourage children to come to a stranger’s house and ask for treats for a number of reasons one being it isn’t a safe practise for the children and people shouldn’t be expected to spend their money in treats and be punished by a trick if they don’t give.


  • ha ha that is so funny. Not sure how popular you would be afterwards.


  • Had made the Brussels sprout ones and my younger children love them. So for now do not mind making this as a treat as they do not like Brussels sprouts any other way.


  • This seems wasteful and not terribly funny.

    • Not sure anyone would accept these as they are not wrapped.


  • I did have a giggle. But as mentioned, people don’t eat home made products because it’s just too dangerous. Ok in small trusted neighbourhoods I guess. I’ll make them and hand them out


  • My kids LOVE Brussels sprouts, but toffee onion ? LOL !!


  • Not a very nice prank.


  • Yuck !!!! Not just a stunt if you are allergic to some foods. e.g. I’m sure some vegetables in the same family naturally contain sulphur. Depending on the person it can cause severe stomach upset, a mild rash or one that becomes whelts.


  • wE DONT DO Halloween AT OUR PLACE.


  • It’s quite funny! However I do agree that homemade treats are dangerous these days, so we try to stay clear from them!


  • oh I hope my kids dont get any of these :( especially the toffee onion!


  • Kind of funny except when the kids come back and egg your house.


  • No l wouldn’t try them,thanks anyway!


  • I wouldn’t make them, but they look like a nice trick!! :-)
