    I told my wife about this idea and she pretty much agreed with you Guido....And she was even LESS impressed when I imformed her of my idea of introducing a new holloween chocalate bar for advertising purposes.....the wrapper would have a picture of her sitting on a broom wearing a witches hat and a GreenPro T-shirt.........

    she was not impressed....

    My ex-wife used to put a piece or two of candy in those little wax bags and put address labels on it. We had a few people thank us because it made them feel at ease that the candy was not contaminated, because who would be dumb enuf to put calling card on bad candy.

    i can not see any reason a label could not have the business name as opposed to Mr. or Ms. Jones.

    Business cards w/ the candy I also think is quite tacky...
    Your giving the candy & cards to the kids, not the parrents... Odviously thoes kids dont make the decision as to tho mows the lawn. Just like how I hate thoes people who give out political fliers to little kids at parades... The kids cant vote, & will most likely toss em on the ground.
    The idea of adress lables to seal the candy bag I think is great.
