Pennsylvania Family Builds ‘Candypult’ for Safe Trick-or-Treating

A Pennsylvania family unveiled their secret weapon to keep trick-or-treating safe amid the pandemic – a treat-launching “Candypult.” Vince Mak, of York County, said his family held a brainstorming session to find a way to distribute candy on Halloween while maintaining social distancing and other safety measures.

“We thought we could try to come up with a creative way to throw candy at kids … safely,” Vince Mak of York County says. “With everything going on, everyone just needs to feel happy and find something to laugh at.”

The family came up with the “Candypult,” a catapult designed to launch candy to trick-or-treaters.
