I bought individual packages of pretzels to give to trick-or-treaters. Chocolate in large quantities is just not "safe" for me. Report
We won't be participating in trick or treat at my house, so I won't have candy around to tempt me. Not too worried about Hallowe'en treats, but the other upcoming holiday are another story................ Report
I consider opportunities like this to be a test of my resolve. I didn't have ANY candy last Halloween and I WON"T eat any this year.

We stocked up on the candies with the eyeball wrappers when they first came out this month, so they've been in my pantry since then! Report
They don't celebrate/observe Halloween where I live and there is so halloween candy available. So I don't have a problem Report
We plan on passing out Play-Dough. The children should enjoy it, and I Won't eat the leftovers! Report
