    Oh, I agree completely. I don't get the treats for the kiddies until a few days before.

    OMG - I'm so glad I am not the only one addicted to candy corn. I buy several bags at Halloween time and then go back to get more bags once they are clearanced down after Halloween. My other candy addiction is Kraft Caramels. So YUMMY!!

    And why do I like these kind that are pure sugar? I wish I liked something like dark chocolate that at least has some health benefits.

    I also love candy corn at this time of year. :) I mix dry roasted peanuts along with mine, so it is not soo sweet. But it is still addicting. :)

    I love the pumpkins and corn. Oh man. It is that time again..... There is a Russell Stover warehouse on the way to Louisiana and I stop in there and buy baskets full of candy from all holidays. Man.......I feel the calories coming on.

    Yes, this time of year, all the Fun Size and Bite Size candy available is just way too tempting. And candy corn, it leaves nothing on your fingers, so you can eat it and handle fabric at the same time! YIKES! Once it's over, then its the Christmas Candy!

    I love the cany corn too but I have convinced myself that it is nasty so I don't buy it anymore. Now I am trying to do the same with chocolate and ice cream.

    I can't believe they have Halloween candy in the stores already, as of early Sept. - i guess they have to have SOMETHING in the seasonal aisle.

    Warning: If you eat the entire bag of candy corn, it will make you sick. Just believe me. I have to protect the quilty. I know that person very well.

    If it was chocolate covered I'd probably be the same way! As it is, I have no problem with it. :D

    I did manage to put the bag back on the shelf the other day...but a bag of Tootsie Rolls snuck into the cart and found there way into the house....I keep hoping that the guys will find them...but so far, I'm the only one eating them.

    I walk by it and say I don't need it then say yuck!! Eventually I stop craving it and when I look at it my tummy turns. DD hates this because I won't buy any chocolate. Now the ice cream that's another story but I haven't bought any so so far so good. Lol. Fingers crossed.

    It is really hard when you are diabetic.
    I won't be eating any either. You can't eat this kind of sugar with a tooth broken in half. Ask me how I know this...

    Mix candy corn with peanuts and you will have the taste of Payday. Don't eat the whole bag at a time. You may end up like me and have diabetes. I used to love it, and still do, but a taste will do me now.
