Care for a candy eyeball anyone? So, you think all that early candy we buy will stay in the jar until Halloween? Like most homes, very doubtful!
Let's look at it this way. Every time we pass the candy dish, it is there, practically calling our names. "Only take one little piece. It won't hurt."
The trouble is, when we pass the candy dish fifteen times that day, at least fifteen irresistible pieces are missing. By the end of the day, you are shaking your head to see the large dent and thinking now I will need to purchase more. Well, who can resist chocolate? I don't even need to look at it to know it is there.
The best way I found around this tasty dilemma, either pick up the candy the day before Halloween and hope a good assortment is left or only purchase the types of candy children and not I will eat.
Could the sugar and calories be the trick to the treat?
