What Happens When You Throw Out the Halloween Candy

After a few weeks of doling out a couple of pieces of candy each evening to little boys who ate their dinner, I decided it was time to get rid of it all.  Besides, I'd already picked out and consumed the good chocolate myself.
 We let the boys each pick out 3 pieces and then say goodbye to the candy.  And then we realized, that somebody was hoarding! 
All we could do was laugh.  Can you blame him for trying?

Adorable! This sounds like something I would do growing up...or maybe a month ago ;-) Glad to know I'm not the only one who takes the good stuff out of the kids stash!

Oh ya... it's gone and we are now working on Christmas candy!

P.S. I think Smarties are made in Canada. Is nothing sacred to the U.S. anymore. LOL

When we had goats, I would give the old candy to them as treats, they would eat suckers stick and all, crunch crunch.

HA HA HA----Love it--and it brought back memories. My youngest son use to hide food under his bed... We would find all kinds of things under there --much of which NOBODY would EVER eat.... ha ha

Hugs,

Aw...every family has to have one child with a sweet tooth.
When I went to paint last week I found a candy wrapper from last Christmas behind a picture on the wall. We've been finding wrappers behind the beds, under the dressers
every since last year!

Debbie said...

haha, he is just too cute but clearly, all the good stuff had been taken ;)))

soon he will grow up and figure that out!!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Haha, nope, not a bit! The look you captured on his face is adorable.

We end up throwing away candy because everyone eats the good stuff then leaves the yucky ones. lol

Donna Heber said...

Hi Lisa,

No, you can't blame your adorable son for hoarding! Haven't we all tried it at sometime? I brought my leftover candy to work and filled up all the candy jars. I don't want to be tempted and it made them happy. Thank you for stopping to visit me. You are so kind.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Haha I don't blame him! I would have tried the same thing myself :)

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

Angela said...

I don't blame him! lol I'll tell you what I've done with the Halloween candy. I take and hide it and use it in their Christmas stockings! hohoho

alissa apel said...

You sound like me! We still have a bag of it.


Isaak would be my hoarder. Not with candy though. More with rocks and leaves.

I love your pictures! So cute.

Grandma Bonnie said...

Oh so cute. I would have probably wanted to hoard a little myself. I had a sweet tooth when I was much younger.

Michael Manning said...

Oh, what a laugh I had at this! Reminded me of being clever at that age!! A great post!!! :)

Chatty Crone said...

LOL - no you can't blame him and he is a doll! I would do the same thing. sandie

Marissa said...

You can't blame a guy for trying!

Too cute!

Linda said...

I think we all tried that at some point. But Mom knows best... and it's best not to have much candy around.

Mary said...

Awh..the candy of it. Justice and tooth decay...hyper activity..who knows what? Not all that tastes good is gold. Good parenting!

Lin said...

Wait! There's a jolly rancher in there......!!!!

Oh, man. :(

Barbara Shallue said...

What? You threw out Smarties????

Andrea (ace1028) said...

TOO cute!!!

And we have a buyback system around here - the local dentists take the candy and send it to the troops. :) We didn't get nearly enough to do that, so we just go through it and she gets some for snack or lunch, but the chocolate has been long gone!

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...
