Stealing Candy from a Baby! Jimmy Kimmel Gets Parents to Pull Halloween Candy Prank on Their Kids

Trick-or-treat! These kids didn’t get something good to eat!

For the eighth year in a row, Jimmy Kimmel has convinced parents to trick their children into thinking they ate all of their Halloween candy.

On the Nov. 1 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the 50-year-old television host presented his audience with a compilation of parents filming their kids’ reactions to the hilariously cruel prank which he has dubbed “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy.”

“Now it’s time to find out just how easy it is to take candy from babies,” Kimmel began.

In the first clip, one small boy grimaces like Marvel’s Hulk after being told his mom and dad ate all of his treats.

The boy later tells his mom “You’re going to get sick.” He then says his parents are going to “poop all over the floor.”

In the next video, one boy is in such disbelief about his parents taking his candy that he repeatedly says “but it was in there,” in reference to his trick-or-treat bucket.

He later became too frustrated to speak and just screamed to the top of his lungs.

One little girl took the mature route and told her mom, “I’m so disappointed at you.”

Next up, was another boy who runs into his kitchen to find all three of his buckets completely empty. When his younger sister comes in and asks ‘What happened?’ he just breaks down in tears.

Some kids even resorted to violence after hearing what their parents had done.

One little boy, who was dressed as a firefighter, began hitting his dad on the forehead after his candy went missing.

A different boy also began hitting his father after being asked if he wanted broccoli instead.

Interestingly, not every kid was upset. In fact, some didn’t even mind that their parents took their treats.

“I’m not mad at all. I would never be mad at you because you’re my mom,” one little boy said and his mom responded with “You’re too sweet. It’s gross.”

One little girl said, “I forgive you mommy. I love you.”

The fascinating story behind the explosive success of Candy Crush — MashTalk


What does “time well spent” mean for games like Candy Crush?

If you own a smartphone, chances are you know Candy Crush and maybe even the game’s latest incarnation, Candy Crush Friends Saga. What you may not know is the story behind the franchise: How an Italian entrepreneur put all his cash on the line as a co-founder of King, the company behind the game, in the early 2000s, with an idea of how to re-invent gaming for the online world.

That person is Riccardo Zacconi. He’s guided the company through the many phases of online gaming (desktop, Facebook, mobile, and more), taking King public and eventually selling it to gaming giant Activision Blizzard in 2015. In this episode of MashTalk, Zacconi talks about that journey, his thoughts on Mark Zuckerberg, and what the future holds for mobile gaming now that people are starting to question all the time they’re spending on their devices playing games like, well, Candy Crush.

You Had Us at Glow-in-the-Dark Fangs: 9 Cheap Halloween Candy Alternatives

Don’t let November 1 wind up being a day of regret.

Having tons of Halloween candy left over because you overestimated how much you’d need for trick-or-treaters ends two ways. You’ll either be eating way too many fun-sized candy bars or you’ll eventually end up trashing them by the dozens — and wasting money.

Why not try out something different this year? Plenty of goodies to give out to trick-or-treaters don’t involve chocolate, artificial fruit flavors or sugar.

I recently visited two dollar stores in my area — Dollar Tree and Dollar General — to find Halloween treats of the non-candy variety. I ended up spending only $ 9 (plus tax) for 213 individual trinkets.

The best part about these treats is whatever’s left over can be reused next year.
