Parents make kids melt down again in annual Jimmy Kimmel Halloween candy prank

LOS ANGELES — It’s the annual gift that keeps on giving.

For the sixth year in a row, Jimmy Kimmel asked parents to pretend they ate all their kids’ Halloween candy — and once again, the parents came through.

The “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy” challenge is back and possibly better than the years before.

The Kimmel Show said it received more submissions than ever this year.

Similar to years before, the video is filled with many tears, screams and tantrums.

And, of course, parents trying to hold back their laughter as their children melt down over the prospect of losing their prized candy collection.
