The Pumpkin King (whose name was not Donald)...realized

there were a lot of little boys and girls who could not go out trick or treating (or souling) on Halloween this year due to the Covid, and thought to himself "this is wrong".
But of course, since his head was a pumpkin, he wasn't really very proactive or thoughtful, and didn't realize this until a week or so before October 30, so he had to come up with a plan quickly to deal with the situation.
After thinking a bit (took a couple days), he realized that the Easter Bunny and Santa handled their holidays with a delivery service, so he asked his favorite Bat minion if he would be willing to deliver goodies to the children. The Bat minion agreed, since it was a minion, and couldn't say no, and began to prepare itself for the arduous night with exercises and weight lifting.
But then, the night before Halloween, the Pumpkin King realized he didn't have any treats. Nor did he have any real plan for the logistics of actual goodie delivery other than his Halloween Bat.
So quickly, (far quicker than expected, since his head was only a pumpkin with a candle for a brain) he sent his minions out to stores looking for Halloween treats. But alas, all that was left were a few bags in the regular candy aisles, since grown-up and teenage humans had already scarfed up the good stuff. And in desperation, the Pumpkin King sent out a mass email to all the parents and guardians asking for help to put treats in, without much explanation on why he was asking, which meant that his desperate plea ended up in many a spam folder.
But luckily, your grandma and grandy always check their spam folder, so we set out the Easter treat eggs that the Easter Bunny always borrowed for our house, so the Halloween Bat was able to fill the eggs as quickly as it could and get out before Kali and Goblin caught it, as it was a very small bat and those two kitties are vicious.
And that is why you only have 10 eggs full of treats instead of the full 24. And that they're full of gummy bears and off-brand candy treats.
And I'm sorry you don't like the Sweet Tarts, Daphne, but the Pumpkin King had little time and very little imagination when it comes to non-scary activities.
Happy day after Halloween!

1. On consideration, if the Pumpkin King and Queen had been a bit more proactive....

They could have used all the Election and grocery/penny ad flyers to make paper mache pumpkins, coffins, and skulls to put treats in, and given the poor, misused Halloween Bat a bunch of grocery store bags to drop them off in instead of trying to avoid the household pets while hiding treats.
No need for a Spam email, and more children could get treats. Ah well, maybe next year, whether there's Trick or Treat or not.
