It's August 30th... today at the grocery they had halloween candy out.

Doesn't everyone just HATE those little innocent looking, "fun size"" bags of calories and fat?!!??

Can't we restrict this holiday to October?? Don't get me wrong, I LOVE halloween... but it's so tempting with CHOCOLATE everywhere I turn...

I always try to pick up small toys, stickers, pencils, etc, for Halloween. That way, I don't have to be tempted!

i think that the "holiday eating" from thanksgiving to new year's actually lasts much longer. it's halloween, then thanksgiving, then christmas, then new year's, then super bowl, then valentine's day and mardi gras, then girl scout cookies come out in march, then easter. then everyone tries to thin down for swimsuit season.

3:43 - i think you were my neighbor as a child, and i skipped your house every year on halloween after figuring out your little trick.

now i just buy candy that i don't like and hand it out, then bring the leftovers to work.

"fun size" candy? a childhood friend of mine said it should be called "where's the rest of my G**D*** candy bar" size.

I agree with the 3:43 poster. I give stickers, removable tattoes, sugarless gum,etc. We have a big party every yerar in mid-October with a pinata for the kids, very little edible stuff. I fill it with stuff from the dollar store, spider rings, funny eyeglasses, squiggly straws, etc. They really don't seem to care about the candy. They love hitting the pinata.

I never ever ever buy them until 7 pm halloween night. Make it easy for yourself and don't have it in the house.
