The other random bit I have to offer this week has to do with Halloween. Given that I'm trying to be healthy I don't like to buy Halloween candy because I don't need the temptation in the house. Plus, have you calculated the PointsPlus values on candy? I'm also a little surprised to admit that most candy is just too sweet for me anymore. Clearly this is a surprise to me considering that I love junk food but whatev.... Anyway, this leaves a big question about what to do about Halloween? This year I've ordered a whole lot of glow-in-the-dark bracelets, and a novelty assortment. So these are the things I'll be handing out on Halloween as my alternative to candy. The trick-or-treating hours in my town go from 3-7 pm (I think) so I'm hoping that most parents will be thankful that my house is one less house giving out sugary treats. I guess we'll see, won't we?!
What do you give away for Halloween? If it's candy, how do you manage to keep your consumption of it under control?
