    Default Halloween Candy (FLUFF)

    1. What's the #1 thing you will steal from your kids treat bags? Or top 3 if you can't pick just one thing.

    2. Do you let your kids just go wild the first few days until they're sick of it and just throw the rest away, or do you dole out one or two pieces of candy each day?

    3. What's the grossest Halloween candy, IYO?

    I am really not supposed to have sweets due to my health, but I will confess I have snuck a few. (PCOS)

    No. Only one piece a day. DH took most of it to work to give away. The rest I asked him to put way high up on top of the cupboards so neither I or the girls can reach it.

    Hmm. If its candy, I probably like it. Unfortunately.

    1. Cheesies, Coffee Crisp, Peanut M&Ms.
    2. 1 piece of something after we get home. No candy right before bed. No way.
    3. Those gross little toffee things in the orange and black wrappers. Yuck.

    2. Do you let your kids just go wild the first few days until they're sick of it and just throw the rest away, or do you dole out one or two pieces of candy each day? They get a few pieces on Halloween night. Piece or 2 here and there We honestly don't have a lot.

    3. What's the grossest Halloween candy, IYO? Candy corn

    Ooh, I despise black licorice too. Okay, I concede that it's yummy as a Black Sambuca shot, but not as Twizzlers. Yuck. Candy corn sounds disgusting. I've heard of it but never seen it. I like my corn on the cob, or popped with butter and salt.

    Candy corn isn't really corn....just a bunch of sugar. It tastes nasty.

    I LOVE black licorice!

    Butterfingers and Heath bars are mine!

    We have teenagers around to help them eat it, so we just let them have it until the good stuff gets picked out, then they don't really eat the rest very often anyway. Usually after about a week I put the rest up in a bag to put in a Pinata for the next birthday. We do Pinata's for almost every birthday so it is an easy way to get rid of the leftover candy.

    All dressed chips, pop rocks and rockets (aka smarties).

    We parent tax as well as remove anything she can't have like hard candy or gum. She doesn't need that much candy!

    She can have extra in the few days after halloween, but she has to eat some real food first. We kind of dole it out a few at a time as it dwindles. Between that and parental stealing it is gone within a week or two.

    Those terrible molasses toffees and the waxy fruit gummy buttons. ew!

    I totally agree. Back at uni one of my classes was full of American students (it was a botany/ zoology class based on the local environment so a magnet for international students) and one of the girls had received a care package from her family around Halloween and she shared out the bag of candy corn. I had to swallow that vile lolly to be polite but it hands down has to be the grossest lolly I have ever tasted

    Girl, that's what I'm talking about! Those things are nasty. I'm sure we're on the same page - they came in Halloween wrappers and were a nice shade of diarrhea and just tasted gross. Maybe they were Canadian? They sort of had a maple/toffee/molasses taste.
