Here's what trick-or-treaters get at the White House...
It includes a ‘serving of dried fruit’.

HALLOWEEN IS A time for finding out which of your neighbours are sound (the ones who give out chocolate and sweets) and which aren’t (the ones who give out peanuts and tangerines only).

But what do you get when your neighbour lives at the White House?

According to Zeke Miller on Twitter, if you trick-or-treat at the Obama’s home, you get:

  • A box of White House MMs
  • Jelly beans
  • A White House Sweet Dough Butter Cookie made by the White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses
  • A serving of dried fruit

What do you make of their offering?
