If it is not Chocolate, it is not worth unwrapping.

I LOVE Good and Plenty's!!!!!!
We try not to be home on Halloween so that we don't have to buy candy! (No little kids, anymore! And very few in our neighborhood) If I buy candy for the 8 or so kids that DO come to the house, I'm left with stuff to either throw out, or eat. The "eat" option isn't for me!
Better to skip the whole thing!

Tootsie rolls - never liked 'em, never will. I don't understand why these are still available - no one I know likes them!

I like the colored tootsie rolls (fruity flavored ones). Not the brown ones, though.

What is up with candy corn? I hated it as a kid but now find it strangely addictive during Halloween season.

Why is there still Bit'O'Honey? I think it is a conspiracy to keep dentists in business. That stuff pulls off more crowns...

And Mary Janes... I like them but they melt in the wrappers. Odd things that they are.

We try not to be home either. I like to go to a public place like a church event or shopping center where they are doing Trick or Treating. When we did stay home, on a military base, my husband would stay home and pass out candy while I took the kids out. When the kids and I got home, 3/4 of their candy would go back in the bowl and the other would go in a ziplock to be eaten later. LOL

We don't buy Halloween candy until just before Halloween... because we'll EAT IT!!! And we buy the mini candy bars - we're one of the houses the older kids try to come back to more than once in a night.

Love Halloween! We have no kids, and it used to be that we'd get all costumed up and go out to the bars just so we could see all the other getups. Now we just have a blast decorating the house and yard, getting dressed up at home and handing out candy. Our house has become kind of known in the neighborhood.
