    This post cracks me up. When my kids were little and I wasn't working, I called my bff Jill one day a few weeks before halloween and said to her, I have 2 words for you, Reeces Sticks. We were both hysterical on the phone. Of course I was flying high after eating who knows how many Reeces Sticks.

    I love how you had to check and see if them m&m's were poison.

    Janet, your post made me laugh so loud, my neighbor (I'm in an apartment) came over to see what was so funny.

    I bought fun size Snickers and put them in the freezer last week. You know. If they are frozen, they are harder to eat, so they last longer.

    Or you can just chew harder. They are SO gone.

    you are a hoot! Listen, here in my neighborhood, Halloween night is HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have to buy enough candy for at least 300 kids (and I use the word kids loosely since many are teens and young adults). My secret is buy the stuff I don't like (you know, a few of those big Costco bags) and that's cheap so I won't eat it ahead of time :bag:

    Although, I must admit to buying a little bag of mounds or snickers for the "neighborhood kids" and starting the evening with about 1/2 of what I bought :ghost:

    Oddly enough, we don't get trick or treaters on our street. I dunno why, cuz we have plenty of kids.

    So.....I don't buy any at ALL. That way I don't eat it.

    But, I am guilty of checking Darrin's and Aubrey's candy by eating a few tootsie rolls. :rofl:

    This post cracked me up. :frankenstein: :ghost: :jack:

    Hehehehehe. This is why I don't buy that until the night before some years even the night of.

    Now on the other hand I bought bags of m&ms and kisses to bake with and am not doing that til November and darn if those haven't been checked.

    Great! Honestly, this year, the thought hadn't even crossed my mind. I bought one of those huge Costco bags and put it in a place where I don't see it. Out of sight, out of mind. BUT after reading this post, it's no longer out of mind!!!

    husband is out of town, so I just might have to break it open...

    Thanks alot, Janet!! really, thanks for the great idea (and I wonder why I can't lose weight!)

    I will go out and be sure in a little while. Like when I pass by the fridge where I am making the attempt to hide them.

    Exactly why I can't buy bags of candy. LOL.

    Now I just buy one when I'm checking out of the grocery ... cause I cant eat just one.

    Thanks for the laugh :rofl:!!! I love Halloween too!!! :vampire: :ghost: :goo: :frankenstein: :jack:

    When my kids were small, I was rifling (is this a word?) through their rather large stashes when, of all things, I lost a cap on one of my teeth. Yes, I'm sure this was a sign from above that I had had enough treats!!! :jack:

    I always buy the stuff I don't like too. Unfortunately, like you, the yucky stuff suddenly becomes a "treat"!!! You really made me laugh :rofl: with that one!!! This year, I guess I'll just admit to myself upfront that if I'm going to buy it and eat it anyway, I should at least make it worthwhile... M&M's, Twix Bars, Almond Joys, Nestle Crunch Bars, etc... ENOUGH!!! :goo:

    I'm ending this response before I gain five pounds just dreaming...
