For the past few years I always look forward to watching the video of Jimmy Kimmel's collab with parents and families from all over recording their children saying " I ate all your Halloween Candy" with the children's reactions. It is honestly hilarious, if you have never watched them just search on YouTube "Jimmy Kimmel Halloween candy" and I am sure you'll find it.

Halloween was yesterday, so I believe the video will be out today or tomorrow but I saw the video on YouTube of Jimmy asking these parents to send in their videos, and upload them to YouTube to be featured, found [img size=here.][/img]

It is somewhat evil, even though I do not have any children yet I literally die of laughter and tears due to these kids reactions. I am sure one day when I have children I will play this little prank on them to see their cute faces go sour.

Some of these kid's are actually okay with it and don't get angry, which is actually still funny! I am sure the parent's are like awe bummer he didn't get upset haha.

I hope you can find some of these videos and watch them, I am sure they will bring a big smile to your face (:

Hi Cierra! I enjoyed reading your posting. I had no idea this was a special Jimmy Kimmel did every year, but I have watched some of the videos. I find the videos extremely hilarious as well, it's such innocent humor. I agree the kids who do not mind are still so funny. I've seen one where the mother said the baby sibling ate all the candy and the kid started crying, that one was definitely my favorite.

So you guys don't think the kids will have trust issues with the parents later in life? Sure they aren't lying to their kids every single day but I bet they will remember these times the next time they have candy. I have no real experience with kids so I don't know if them crying is serious or not, but it just seems mean-spirited to me. Maybe one of you guys can correct me?

I really liked this series of "prank" on the kids from Jimmy Kimmel. I mean, it's just Halloween, right? These kids will slowly learn how it's like being scared or tricked. In which, I think it is the spirit of this holiday in the first place! I personally think that joking within the family is definitely a plus thing if everyone comes clean and know that jokes are jokes and nothing personal. I rather have my parents prank me with this candy trick than telling me every day I can only consume 2 candies. In my opinion, life is about bringing colors and enjoying yourselves as well as your loved ones, ie. families.

i also have mixed feelings about this so-called tradition. While it is funny, some parents have taken Halloween candy to represent more than fun and games to their children. For example, Tom Brady and his wife Gisele ignited a controversy by publicly announcing/ bragging that they don't allow their children to eat the candy they collect while trick or treating. Instead they "give away' their candy to less fortunate children. While this may seem like a sweet story, candy is literally free on halloween. This sounds a lot more like using food to manipulate and control children who should be empowered to make their own healthy choices. It also sounds suspiciously indicative of a fat-shaming mentality. While body positivity and body acceptance are not the reasons Gisele is a multi-millionaire, these are values most of us hope to pass onto our children. abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/gisele-bund...dy/story?id=43277504
