You can say anything you want about Halloween,but we all know the true star is always going to be Candy!!!....or any other sweet unhealthy treat!..lol
when it occurred to me that I was too old for trick-or-treating anymore,it really didn't hit me too hard! I mean,I would miss it a little. But what was I really going to be missing out on?!?...
The one thing I noticed as I grew up trick-or-treating was that the types of candy that I would actually eat,was getting less and less. You see am strictly a CHOCOLATE man!.. So around 12,I started realizing that it was less and less chocolate in my trick-or-treat bag! Mostly 97% of my entire Halloween candy,would consist of plain candy..most of the time cheap sugar candy!!!....
So I bought my own damn Candy!!..lol And why not ?....only you know what is your favorite candy!.. Of course if your parents then giving up Halloween is even easier. Just wait to you get home, and as you and your kids sort through all the candy,you just take what you want. Their are many ways of doing it. There's the old slide-of-hand trick when your kids are not looking ! Or my personal favorite excuse that I got from my parents!..."Oh!!...This candy looks suspicious,I better eat it for you"!...lol
The kids love me! They know when they come to my house and reach into my candy bowl,they know they have a greater chance of pulling a handful of chocolate,then some stupid sugar gumdrops or lollipops!
I make sure the chocolate ratio in my candy bowl for Halloween is always around 60% or 70% chocolate!
And how about all of weird people who get out stuff during Halloween. Dental floss,pencils even fruit! Like kids can't get this stuff other time of the year! Either they suffer from a lack of creativity....or trying to be original. Most of the time it seems like they just trying to enforce their ideals! SAVE IT FOR THE INTERNET!!!..
Anyway....feel free to leave a comment.
