I like to buy my candy ahead of time, but I am afraid I will eat it. So I try to buy candy I don't like.
That would be easy because I only like chocolate candy. However, I want to give the trick or treaters chocolate. So I want to buy chocolate. Since I don't like peanut butter in my chocolate, I buy chocolate candy with peanut butter. Then I don't eat it!

With Halloween coming up, I wanted to avoid the temptation of a bowl full of delicious chocolate staring me in the face all night so I decided to buy candy I don't like. For instance, I hate coconut, nothing, not even smothering it in chocolate would get me to eat it, so naturally Mounds or Almond Joy would be a perfect choice for Halloween treats this year.
This concept also works if someone in the house has a sweet tooth. My husband bought a dessert (with coconut in it) and it sat in the fridge for almost two weeks. No temptation at all!
Halloween candy is a tradition that can go way out of hand. I do provide candy for the trick oir treaters BUT I always make sure to buy candy that I really don't like. That way it can be in my house the week before Halloween and I am not tempted in the slightest to have any. 431
