Growing up the go-to house on Halloween in my neighborhood was the guy who worked for 7-Up. He always gave away cans of soda. These days, between food allergies,  and parents who are more likely to monitor their kids intake of sweets some of us may want to give away something that isn't edible.

Here are five goodies which aren't edible that might be cool to stick in trick or treat bags. I found these on
