I actually got into a bit of an argument with a fellow mom a few years back about my children’s awful Halloween candy. We were trick-or-treating at a local (and rather upscale) mall and my kids were disappointed with all the generic, bottom-shelf candy they were getting because let’s face it, would you really eat any a handful of Jolly Ranchers or Tootsie Rolls? Probably not and I know my kids won’t either.
Now, does that give me the right to complain about Halloween candy? It depends on what your outlook is, but when I have trick-or-treaters come to my house, I make sure to give them the candy that they want, which usually includes name brands like M&M’s, Butterfingers, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and so much more. Because Halloween only comes once a year so why not give the little Annas and Elsas and Darth Vaders something they’ll actually enjoy (while also potentially giving them cavities too, right?!?).
Tell us Hot Moms, what are on your best and worst Halloween candy lists? Because if I have to take the time to get stick gum drops out of my teeth, it’s not worth my time!
