Every fall it starts. The endless amounts of candy you can find in the stores reminding us that the holidays are here and they are all about candy. Ok, their not, but you'd think that with the crazy amounts of candy you can find. Last year I did myself a favor and instead of being Miss. Frugal or Ms. Prepared by buying sale candy a head of time I waited until just before Halloween. Yes, this limits your choices, but you're giving it away right?
The one thing that I can't wait to buy are these delectable mini pumpkins. Candy corn has nothing over a fresh candy pumpkin. The great thing is that you can buy a small packages to keep things in check.
This year I've once again waited to buy candy but I purchased a much bigger bag of pumpkins....I've had them for almost two weeks but I think their days are limited. 5=140 calories, but they are empty calories. However, it's good not to deny yourself of simple pleasures or you'll find your self going crazy and going over board.
The last few nights I've wanted to go crazy more like this pumpkin and eat everything in sight. Salty, nutty, sweet, chewy....it all sounds good.
The one thing I have to stay away from because I have no control are peanut butter cups. I love that they make pumpkin peanut butter cups because they have more peanut butter than a normal cup.....I could make myself just continually eating them. I will have one before they go away until next year but I'm hoping it will just be one.
What are your seasonal favorites? Do you allow yourself to indulge?
