In The Mix: Trick-Or-Treat Cut-Off Age?

We asked, they answered, what's the age limit?

October 28, 2018

The older you get the more people want to tell you that you may be too old to… trick-or-treat. We’ve got you’re back and want to help settle the question once and for all with this week’s edition of In The Mix, how old is too old to go trick-or-treating?

Elizabeth Kay (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): "Is there a cut-off age for trick-or-treating? No, because I don’t want the extra candy in my house. You show up in a costume, you’re getting candy. Get out of my house, because I’ll eat it all.”

Tony "Radar" Hess (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): "Is there really an age cut-off for trick-or-treating? I don’t think so! I mean, look at me, I’m like 5’ 6” barely. That’s with my shoes on and I could probably pass for a kid. So, I don’t think there’s a cut-off, if you’re trick-or-treating you’re getting candy at my house! Come on over.”

Dave "Producer Dave" Stein (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): "The question today is what should be the trick-or-treat cut-off age. Oh, we get lots of calls on this. Guess what, I don’t think there should necessarily be a cut-off age, but you gotta be wearing a costume because kids like having fun. They’re not just trying to get free candy, they’re having a good time. Maybe like 45 years-old, by yourself… that’s a cut-off age. But if you’re wearing a costume, I’ll give you candy. And as long as you’re not doing those bad things, that’s what really counts.”

Molly Cruz (9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.): "Do I think there should be a cut-off for trick-or-treating age? Well, I was planning on going trick-or-treating this year, so I’m going to say no. Candy for everyone! Don’t try and ruin the fun. Let kids have fun, they’re going to steal the candy off your porch anyways, so it’s fine.”

Aaron Carreno (1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.): "What’s cut-off age for trick-or-treating? I’m hearing crickets. Oh, I go with my friends that have kids because I still want the candy!”
