A Milwaukee home become the stuff of Halloween legend after giving trick-or-treaters the option to choose between a candy bar or a raw potato.

One group of teenage kids even started yelling 'potato gang' around the neighborhood they were so excited about the spuds next to their milk duds.

“Throughout the neighborhood, I think they were kind of like potato evangelists. They were spreading the good word, and I think that’s really when it kind of became a thing," Ross said.

Ross just did it to be fun, weird, and different. There was no message behind it. Ross saw a post on Facebook that someone did it in 2021, so they wanted to do it.
