Halloween never comes on a Friday night so I’m excited to hand out candy to the kiddies tonight!
This morning I prepped the candy bucket and I am so excited to see the kids dressed up in their costumes. I just hope the kids will show up since it’s Friday night in the South. That is usually filled with high school football, so we’ll see.
I’ve been taking a poll on what people’s favorite candy is and chocolate seems to win out. Chocolate bars and chocolate peanut butter cups. Back in the day, I used to tear up peanut butter cups so I would probably go with that.
Having the candy is our house isn’t tempting because it’s just not something I want to eat. If I were to put some Twizzlers in the house, Willie would be seriously tempted though. That’s really the only candy he eats…and peanut butter cups.
Did you see the post I posted on FB about eating the Halloween candy and working it off? It’s definitely something you should check out if you plan on eating a lot of candy! Eat a piece and work it off!
I was asked this morning if we gave out candy at our house for Halloween. Yes we do! It’s a special day for kids and they should enjoy it. I don’t need to brow beat my healthy eating habits onto a kid on the biggest candy day of the year. I do hope parents teach their kids about moderation though. In addition to giving out candy, I give out pretzels too. One year I tried the pre-packaged apple slices and that didn’t go over to well. But there has always been candy.
I hope everyone enjoys a spooky special Halloween on this Friday! Have a piece of candy but not too much!
Are you dressing up for Halloween? What are you going to be?
