The Bane of Halloween

I try to buy our Halloween treats as close to the 31st as possible. Yes, I realise that this means I might not get the best bargain or, necessarily, the best of the best treats (my apologies in advance to those coming to our door). However, there is a very good reason why I put off buying our treats to the last minute. Obviously, this past Sunday was still too early for me to be trusted. This is why we shouldn’t buy our treats too early.

To be fair to me, the boxes aren’t completely full when they’re packaged. ‘Settling’ the companies call it. I call it a rip off but I still seem to buy them anyways. And, I swear, DH did help eat a bit too. Still, I'm a big girl and can admit that we can place about 95% of the blame on me.

Sigh. Here I sit all alone on my chocoholic wagon.

Hmmm...looks like you are a fan of the coffee crisp. I've got a box with Reese Peanut Butter Cups in it. Yummy.

Oh, you aren't alone my friend. You aren't alone!

I buy the candy in sealed bags a few days before Halloween and don't open them. After Halloween, I steal candy from my kids and deny all knowledge of where the Whoppers could have gone.
