If you purchased it, I don't see why not.

If it was a "gift"... ethically, you could return any other gift, so again I don't see why not. Personally I wouldn't. I'd give it to some other child. It was intended to make some random child happy. I'd want to continue that. But it wouldn't be unethical not to, imo.

"Is it ethical to return unopened bags of Halloween candy? "

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This year's or last year's or from ten years back?

The ethical dilemma would become significant at around the 5 year mark
I would guess unless the bags begin to move independently or
significant bubbling has started before that date.

Is it ethical to return unopened bags of Halloween candy?

While it isn't unethical to return it, I would wonder about the policy of the store where it was purchased. Some stores consider halloween candy to be along the same lines as holiday decorations and don't give complete refunds if the holiday is over.

That said, if the bags are just generic candy without any sort of holiday packaging, then you could probably take them back.

Another alternative would be to donate them to a food bank and let them distribute the candy as treats to the children of their clients.

Personally, I don't see a problem with returning it if it's done right away. If it's more than a week or two after the holiday or after the sell-by date, that's a different matter.
