It's a always a mixed bag — literally — when your kids dump out their trick-or-treating loot after a night of scavenging for goodies on Halloween. But no matter where you live, there's always one neighbor who opts out of the traditional candy and passes out a more "eccentric" treat — and let's just say, some of these choices are a lot weirder than others. These moms shared the most unusual items that they've encountered on the trick-or-treating trail, and we're shocked they ever ended up in a child's bag of candy!

  1. "I got a rock." — Jill
  2. "There's a guy who works for the Walt Disney Company and has hundreds of Disney movies, so he used to give out Disney movies to each trick or treater. He had an entire room in his house that was full of shelves with different movies and you just walked in and picked one!" — Tasha
  3. "I got ketchup packets once as a kid." — Alanna
