I used to buy bags of candy over and over again, despite us hardly having any trick or treaters in the area. We would all dive into it prior to Halloween. The last couple of years though, we buy only a minimal amount of whats on sale, as my son and hubs likes to have a little around. So I mainly go for hershey kisses, as one kiss is enough to satisfy a chocolate craving. Plus, not really into them, Though I do favor the Reese's!
Anyhow, we stopped handing out treats in our neighborhood and instead take our son, whose only 6, to one of our favorite malls, that has trick or treating. They do a mall wide trick or treating every year. It is a safe location, the costumes are tame and he has lots of fun. I am never tempted by the candy he gets, nor what we have at home. I instead look at it as lots of walking exercise (long two story mall), a nice outing and family time together, as we often go for a late dinner at one of the restaurants near the mall, where I stay in the IR frame of ordering.
