Garlic has healthful properties in addition to warding off vampires - and I can guarantee that the smell of garlic will put a stake through the heart of any thoughts of chocolate :)

Thanks to all of you for the Hallowe'en silliness. Enjoy your evening.

Can you use it like a pacifier ha ha ha? Sigh . . . I'm going to have a healthy dinner and do my darnedest to stay away from the candy.

Yes, chocolate candy will ward off the broccoli eaters. However, I discovered two years ago that I had no chocolate, so I used a gummy worm chain around my neck. Wrong move! Avocado eaters bombarded our house, coming even from other towns.

I shall always remember this little ditty that the Northeast Witch of the Western Slope taught me:

"If you are going to wear candy around your neck,
First be sure to do a Google check."

Have a great Halloween, everyone!

I hadn't thought about spirits but it seems like a very good idea

Not only will it ward off Halloween candy, but many other things, people and animals too (although our javelinas here in AZ do happen to like the stuff, as do the flies). It won't ward off vampires, though -- as we all know, garlic is the only thing that does that.

Good idea with the chocolate bar -- anything to keep those pesky broccoli seekers from showing up!

Enjoy the spirit (or spirits if that be the case)!

emoticon OR emoticon Hmmmmmmmmm!

ps - couldn't tell if this was a mushroom or one stalk of broccoli -- it could be either (especially if the broccoli were cooked -- it's that kind of ugly green).

Thanks for that. I finished up the broccoli last night, but I've still got the stalk for if I make soup. Will just the stalk work or does it have to be the whole broccoli head? Should it be cooked broccoli or will raw broccoli work just as well?

IRVING666: I wear a big chocolate candy bar around my neck and that keeps any broccoli eaters from trick-n-treating at our place.

Good point about the type of candy. I live in a compound where there aren't any kids so I don't even have to buy candy. It's a big help although I miss the kids.

Peace be with you

Haha!
My Halloween Tip is - don't buy your favorite type of candy to give the trick or treaters or you might find yourself saying "one for you, one for me!"

Hi folks:
Here's a hot tip for Halloween, just in time. I have heard that wearing a stalk of broccoli around your neck will ward off Halloween candy.
