I’m wondering if the Obamas might be getting a few tricks played on them after kids open up the bag of treats they handed out this past weekend for Halloween. According to the following video, they handed out bags of dried fruits and White House shaped short bread cookies made with honey from the White House beehives. Doesn’t sound exactly what most kids are looking for when they dump their pillow cases out on the living room floor, does it?

Fortunately, Obamafoodorama reports there were also M&M’s with the White House seal on them in those bags. That’s good. I’d hate to see the Secret Service have to take down a disgruntled Harry Potter.
