With Halloween behind us for another year, I'm sitting here staring at two full, unopened boxes of chocolate treats. Why don't I learn NOT to buy the chocolates that I like? The kiddies are gone, some of the 100's of treats I purchased are gone with them, but what am I supposed to do with these leftover goodies?
I really should have opened these two boxes first and given them out. I know that I can't walk by Peanut Butter Cups without reaching for one and here I have a box that probably has, oh, about 15 or 20 in it! Okay, so I can pass on the Smarties. I don't know what it is about them but they just don't taste as good as they did when I was a kid. The Kit Kats? I happen to be eating one right now while I'm typing this so just like my waistline, they will be disappearing soon.
And did any of the rest of you notice how stingy the bar companies have become this year? These Halloween packs now hold treats that are about the size of a Pot of Gold chocolate. Not only are the treats smaller, but the boxes hold less of them. Instead of 100, its 70 and instead of 75, it's 50. Worst of all, the price of these boxed treats is up from last year!
So I wonder if I can learn my lesson once and for all so that next Halloween, I buy only the candy that I DON'T like and not nearly as much!
