The Halloween Candy Kids Crave Most? SFist Poll Seeks to Find Out

I admit it: I once lived through a bad Martha patch. For Halloween that year I decided that what trick-or-treaters wanted wasn't miniature Kit Kats or bags of M&M's, but tiny cups of warm cider and doughnuts I fried myself. I couldn't have been more wrong, of course. Turns out kids didn't give a shit about house-made doughnuts, and their parents didn't want them sipping the nice man's cider. They wanted factory-made candy. As much of it as they could grab.

How to make a kid smile before destroying his teeth with sugar? SFist's Brock Keeling is aiming to find out with a poll of Halloween candy preferences, broken down by type. Go. Vote. Then check the results before sacking up at Walgreens. And a word to my gay foodie brethren: While "baked goods" is an option, Martha's Shaker-inspired clabbered-milk cake doughnuts aren't. They're just not.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
