Why? WHHHHHHYYYYYYYY? - Page 2

post #31 of 52
Yeah, those "fun size" things are killers. They're so easy to keep putting one after another in your mouth. For that reason, I don't buy my Halloween candy until the day of Halloween. I find sales then too!

I also have learned the trick of buying some stuff I don't like......way less tempting that way.

Y'know what? I've been eating much less chocolate lately, because a wonderful local chocolatier has ruined me for all other candy! He makes it all right there, behind a glass wall, and it's SO GOOD... even Dove pales by comparison.

And luckily, Mr. Dorian's chocolate is just expensive enough, and his store is just far enough away, that I can't get it very often! So I'm eating less, but enjoying it more.

Here's his website: http://www.jdorian.com/

Not living here before I bought 2 bags of just in case candy. Snickers and kit-kats (which just happen to be my favorites)
Have not busted into them yet, but I hear them calling my name like a siren song.
I am keeping them in the freezer, so even if I sucumb to the song I will not be able to bite into one until they thaw and I gain my wits back and put them away (in theory)
So far it is working, but I have done a blitz on the candy in years before left being surrounded by teeny candy wrappers in a sad sugar fueled chocolate binge.

I don't hand out candy at Halloween because I take my kids trick or treating but that doesn't stop me from buying Halloween Candy

Especially being 6 1/2 months pregnant now. If it's chocolate, it doesn't last very long in my house

I love being pregnant during the Holidays

I LOVE LOVE LOVE those little square Snickers. YUMMY Im working Halloween night so I have no need to buy candy plus I live in the boonies so no Trick or Treaters here! However the sales after Halloween are irresistable and I will be buying TONS of candy for myself and BF because we adore Hersheys chocolate and of course he needs a stash for the garage and I need my own for the house! Yummy in my tummy

I ate a whole bag of Reese's PB cups. They are my weakness.

The most telling word in this statement is the word "yet".

Ohhh....Trick or Treating in the snow! That would be fun....I remember the year of our Halloween Blizzard, we all went as "abominable snowpeople".

The bag of Reeses is now open.

I bought mine the first week of October. I was running errands, wanted some decorations, and picked up candy as well. I always buy a mix of things and dump them all into the shopping bag, mis them up, then stick them into the bowl, the put the bowl into the bag and tie it in a knot.

I always get tootsie pops. In previous years, I've had to go back out and buy a couple more bags, becasue I eat all my favorite flavors. This year, I've only had one tootsie pop.... and half the mini boxes of mike'n'ikes and hot tamales... so I picked up another bag of those, and when I was at work Monday, I got two big boxes of those candies for myself, so I'd stop digging into the halloween candy!

This is my first year in this building. I know there are kids in the building... not many, but there are some. I don't know if they'll TorT in the building. One of the other buildings close y is hosting a Halloween thing for the kids...

Whatever doesn't get taken that evening will get hauled with me to the NaNoWriMo midnight write-in later that night... if I go. and I'll share with my fellow writers...

Today was great! This week is Respiratory Care week....so the head of our department brought candy goodie bags for all of the respiratory therapists today!!! My bag had a bunch of fun sized candy : crunch bar, hershey's milk chocolate bar, 3 musketeers, starburst, skittles, milky way, butterfinger and 3 dum dum's. (So far I've only eaten the Crunch bar......that will soon change though )
