Is it just that I’m bigger or is Halloween candy a lot smaller than it was when we were kids?
I’ve been spending Bo’s morning nap time sorting out our Halloween stuff. I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to carve on our pumpkins (I overdid it for a few years and I think it’s time to scale back and keep it simple this year). I pulled out Littleman’s trick-or-treating basket and found the lights that we put up on Halloween. I unburied our big Halloween candy bowls and opened up the candy boxes to see how much more I need to buy before the big day.
OK, I lie. I could have figured out how much candy I have based on the number on each box. But, I needed a little sugar hit.
So, here’s my question: when did the Halloween candy get so small? As a mom of young kids, I suppose I appreciate the fact that the candy they’ll get on Halloween is nice and little. One or two small bites is really more than enough. But as a nursing momma who has a MAJOR sweet tooth, these things are ridiculous! I could eat an entire box in one sitting and not even break a sweat.
Good thing I’ve started running…
