I have to admit, I was glad to see Halloween come and go. It’s not my favorite holiday, although we do buy candy and hand it out to the neighborhood kids…of which there were quite a few this year, by the way. They came, they got candy, and we had just a little of the good stuff left. I made sure that I gave out the boxes of Dots and the Tootsie rolls to the little goblins and saved a few of the good ones for us. And by good ones, I mean chocolate of course!
And then it happened. I was in Walgreens buying my weekly ad specials when I spied the sign. 75% off Halloween candy. And I fell for it. Totally. Come on home with me Snickers, little Baby Ruth, and you cute little Crunchs (dark, even which my hubby will love me for!).

We did not have very many kids stop by and had too much temptation left. My dh and I are doing a great job of taking care of it all. 🙁 I’m glad I didn’t see any big sales. Who can pass up a good buy on chocolate? You are right…it’s only going to get worse. It seems like sweets in December is permissable, doesn’t it?
We did not have alot of kids this year so I sent most of the chocolate home with my niece. It’s just too tempting for me. LOL
no we didnt fall for it…we have our own little gobblins that brought candy, on top of candy to the house!
as far as packing on the pounds – well I think we all feel like that, but I think we gotta remember to add enjoyment into our lives and if those little crunchies can put a smile on you then you go right ahead girl! Life is too short!

My thighs are out of contro!!!
I didn’t fall for it, but I sure don’t need much to be enticed. :-/
Hi Ms. Rhoda…Oh yes, chocolate and I are well acquainted. I absolutely have to have a bite (or more) daily…I fell in love with those Midnight mini-Milky Ways…and then I couldn’t find them anymore…at least not at Wal-mart..Thank you God! 😉 Bo
How can you turn down 75% off??? Answer…YOU CAN’T so being the smart lady you are…you didn’t! I was laughing about handing out the dots and saving the good stuff. I’m guilty of the same thing!
This is my first ever post to your blog. First, I LOOOOOOVE your blog! I have it on my blog list. Love your panache! Regarding chocolate; I think this is my favorite food. It really should have a block on the food pyramid all to itself. If you love chocolate, you should try my Double Fudge Brownie Bars from my post on November 6th. I say go ahead and have a little chocolate. As you say it ‘Tis the Season! Have happy and sweet weekend!
