Perhaps one of the strangest costume categories were those based on food products.  Now I could see a kid being accepting of a Jolly Green Giant or Mr. Peanut outfit, but what's up with the rest of these?  Dressing up as Count Chocula or Frankenberry might be cool, but to dress up as a BOX of those cereals is just plain crazy.  And I imagine the NAACP had more than their share of gripes with the weird Hershey's Kisses and Reese's Peanut Butter Cup costumes.  At least we know what Rush Limbaugh's kids are wearing for Halloween.
