My daughter told me to pass along this warning to everyone that  has kids that still trick or treat! 
The gold wrapped coin candy is causing deaths in children.  They are saying not to buy it and not to let your kids eat it. shakehead
I don't know any other details, just that she wanted me to pass it to everyone!

Thank you momofmany! I did not know that and I do have 4 small grandkids that I will be trick or treating with. I will be sure to do a triple check on thier candy and give them another reason why you dont get into your candy before adults check it first.

Please note that this candy was not shipped to the USA, only to Canada, and the Canadian food guys are all over it. It isn't lethally poisonous, just has that dumb melamine or whatever that the Chinese put in the baby formula. So if you are in Canada, don't let the kids eat any foil wrapped chocolate coin candy!
