I caught my husband in the Halloween Candy Bag early this morning and threatened to tell to the kids. I was even prepared to take a picture for evidence.
In fact, what they don’t realize is that he has already pulled out his favorite candies from their “trick-or-treat” bags stashing them away in the freezer.
Now the Two Large Halloween Candy bags are haunting me in my own house!
I work from home and the kids are at school. Who would know if I snuck just a few m&ms?
Tessa the dog and I are in a deep discussion as to the ethics of taking the children’s candy without asking. Is this a form of omitting the truth?
Some would say this is a parents right. I gave you life; you give me the Halloween Candy Bag!!! So in true blogger fashion I began to rationalize why I should walk away from the Halloween Candy Bag.
10. It is miserable cheap candy any way.
9. Most of it is not chocolate.
8. The gummy stuff will pull out my fillings.
7. It will make me cranky and sleepy and I will not get my work done.
6. I might as well just spoon corn syrup into my mouth.
5. Hey, eating corn syrup is less effort, I don’t have to unwrap anything.
4.I have a car, money. and the ability to get my own single source chocolate. Take that Halloween Candy Bag!
3.Ah ya, I know I could just blame it on my husband.
2. Ummm sugar sugar sugar
- Give me the stinkin’ bag of candy! They will never know I ate all the cheap chocolate!
Halloween candy the gateway to the sugary goodness of the holiday season.
There are positive ways to dispose of the “dastardly bag of corn syrup laced trick-or-treat trash” without eating it! I list a few ways to handle it in the blog below.
How do you handle Halloween Candy Bags in your home?
