It's an annual conundrum. You're sick and tired of your kid getting these "fun sized" candies that are never big enough to be fun. Or worse, there's someone on your block who hands out floss!

Rather than going to the market to buy eggs and toilet paper for revenge, the real estate website Zillow has a better and less criminal alternative: they listed the top places to trick-or-treat in Los Angeles.

The story actually ranks the top cities in America to beg for candy. Los Angeles came in sixth behind San Francisco, Boston, Honolulu, San Jose and Seattle. But they also listed the top neighborhoods to raid. Their list:

1. Pacific Palisades
2. Brentwood
3. Bel Air
4. Studio City
5. Cheviot Hills

Their methodology:

Taking the most holistic approach, the Trick-or-Treat Index is calculated using four equally weighted data variables: Zillow Home Value Index, population density, Walk Score and local crime data from Relocation Essentials.

While this may help, it does not guarantee the king size Butterfingers or caramel apples. So where is the best place to trick-or-treat?
