Take it or Double it: Candy Edition


Do you think Alden High School students will take something rather than passing that item forward? Let’s find out by asking around the school, “Would you rather take this piece of candy or double it?”

In the halls, during passing periods, I will be asking people around Alden High School if they would rather take a pack of skittles or double it and give it to the next person, to see what students would prefer to do.

“Oh, I would totally pass it on to the next person,” said Mr. MacCowan. Most people, like Mr. MacCowan, decide to pass it on and double it. On the other hand, some people take it … “Because I’m hungry,” said Noah Gauld.

More of this trend can be found allover TikTok using many different items like candy, money, and other items of value.
