Halloween Candy... — The Bump
Trouble TTC

Halloween Candy...

May be the death of me.  I am not a candy eater... or chocolate.  I prefer salty snacks much much more than sweet however, my hormonal body is craving otherwise and I could not stay away from the reeses last night.  Eek!

Re: Halloween Candy...

  • LOL. I bought some for Trick or Treaters, but then put it somewhere out of sight so I wouldn't be reminded I had it.

  • DH has been wanting to buy candy "for the trick or treaters" for a few weeks now.. I refuse and am probably going to get it tonight or tomorrow.

    I'm also toying with the idea handing out hard-boiled eggs wrapped in foil to teenagers and/or adults with infants.

    Alexander - 8/9/14
  • I have tried to talk my husband into handing out fruit snacks or something healthier for halloween this year but he doesn't want us to be "that house" so I guess we will buy candy after all. 

    I am waiting until tomorrow night or thursday to buy any so there is no time for me to eat it.

  • FYI if any of you know anyone with a Sams Club membership by your candy there.  I got a huge bag, I think it was 160 pieces for $8 of snickers, 3 musketeers, twix, m & ms, & milky ways.  I know at my local super market the big bag was 120 pieces for $12.

  • Last year, since it was our first year in the suburbs, I bought enough candy for at least 100 kids.

    We got 4 ... 4! trick or treaters.

    We got so sick of eating candy and none of our friends wanted it after a while.



  • I totally broke into the Halloween candy as well. I just *HAD* to, ha. @EmeJay that happened at the last house we moved to. Huge neighborhood, always kids out playing...and a grand total of 7 trick-or-treaters. After we moved to this house, I asked the new neighbors what to expect so we wouldn't be stuck with bags of candy. 

    This site has some nice alternatives to candy that may or may not work (read: get your house egged). I may try one of these next year since you can buy some of the stuff in bulk from places like Oriental Trading Company

    I'd be a fan of the glow sticks :-)

  • I put a sign on the candy that I bought last week saying "do not open until Hallowee".  But then last Friday was my birthday and I broke down.  When DH asked I just replied "It was my birthday, I can do what I want!"  It was funny...  we both enjoyed that bag of Starburts all weekend.
