Re: Guess I'm going to have to buy larger clothes :-)

I purchased 3 of the super large bags of candy last weekend.  All mini candy bars, M&M's and similar.  My son came over tonight and opened one of the bags...ugh, guess I'm going to have to tape it closed later.  Once it's open, it seems like fair game.

Candy Corn is so SWEET!!! This might sound crazy but mix candy corn with salted peanuts (regular-not dry roasted) equal amounts and it is AMAZING!!! Tastes like a Pay Day candy bar! Oh now I'm hungry for some! Wish I had a bowl full.

Unfortunately, I haven't found a candy I don't like. Some I like better than others but I like it all.🎃

I am with you.....I like it all.     But, I can't use Halloween as an excuse to buy it..

Right now my family has so much candy corn that we should be awarded stock in the company Woman Wink I've been nibbling on it all afternoon. Halloween is my favorite holiday and candy corn (the original and the kind with chocolate tips) is my all-time favorite candy.

I'll probably go to costco or wherever, and buy up as much of it as possible, since this is just about the only time of year I can find it. (I'll have my DH hide it <3  

 

 

oink oink!


@GoneButNotForgotten   I've been known to partake in a handful or two every year but what I really buy them for is a topping when I make cupcakes.  It makes for a quick and easy decoration on top of the frosting for Halloween.  Same thing with jelly beans.  That is what I use to decorate my Easter cupcakes.

 

At Publix anyway, they are sold year round.  They are Publix brand and are both sold near the bridge mix, chocolate covered raisins, lemon drops, etc.  🎃

I like candy corn, I bought a mid sized bag yesterday and filled the candy bowl.  I ate a handful and then moved the bowl out of my sight.  I don't overindulge in junk food the way I did in the past.  I do make some Halloween treats for the family for Halloween week. Pumpkin chocolate chip bread, cookies that I decorate.

you are not alone they are my downfall...tonite I played cards my friend put a bowl of the "Autumn Mix w/Pumpkins" out ...oh my but she told us they were "healthier" because they were made with honey!!! Yeah right as I ate more than 1 spoonful...

 

My other downfall is butterfingers.  Good thing we don't get trick or treaters (I live in gated over 55 community) or I'd eat all the candy!

Enjoy your Halloween treat🎃🎃🎃🎃

I got a whole bag of those candy corn pumpkins too!....purely to spice up my Autumn decor of course

For halloween I prefer to buy the candy which I don't like but the rest of the family does. That prevents me from eating it.  LOL
