The amount they collect lasts them a while, or makes them very sick for
a short time.

I really don't know anybody that got sick, not saying they haven't/don't
somewhere, but nobody I know ever did, and we ate lots of it. If they have a
tendency to do that, that's what parents are for. No law says kids have to
trick or treat, take them to an organized party where the treats are
rationed if that's the case, or parents could have an in home party of their
own.

I just don't feel right about giving kids stuff that is essentially
poison.


Expensive!


I don't mind giving out expensive stuff on Halloween.

Halloween wasn't usually when I got sick. Because we got the candy before
dinner.

Easter and Christmas were when I always got sick. The Easter basket with
the chocolate eggs. The stocking with the chocolate Santas. I would be
hungry and I would start eating those before breakfast and then my mom would
give us donuts for breakfast.

I only ever let Angela go to a few houses. Of what she got, she would be
lucky if there were 2 or 3 pieces of candy in there that she could/would
eat. There might be the same amount that her dad would eat. And then the
other 2 or 3 pieces would go in the trash. So you see why I didn't let her
go very far. That would be kind of a waste.

I do feel bad for the people in this economy though. For the last couple of
years we have gotten just as many adults stopping by as kids. I think they
just need food. Any food.

my issue with many diabetics is they think because sugar is poison to them
it is poison to everyone and thats simply not true.
a healthy person can eat it and they body takes what it needs and disposes
of the rest.

if I am deathly allergic to fish,it up to me to be on guard..it would be
ridiculous for me to insist it be removed from your home and not sold in
store or restaurants..

same goes for sugar...we all need it to live and your steak will eventually
be converted to it..but eating a large amount of it pure will harm you..so
dont eat it..but to deny others it is silly.

there's no difference between a snickers bar and eating toast with honey and
jam...in fact the toast would hit me much worse...

if you were babysitting a child and they wanted toast and jelly would you
deny them it?...chastise parent for serving it?

but ya know..to each their own...lol

This cracks me up Krom, really...I was at Walgreen's this morning picking up
a prescription for my dh, bought some shampoo and was checking out, putting
my number in for the Balance Rewards and there was an elderly man behind me.
The clerk asked him if he wanted to buy a candy bar (they seem to be
pitching different items while you check out these days) he said no he's a
diabetic and can't have candy. What was he buying? Wait for it...a loaf of
bread and the Nice Honey that was on sale. I kid you not. LOL

Yes. And I do remember for many years I wouldn't bring it into the house
because I didn't want it to tempt me. I did spend more money on Halloween
and I gave out little toys. This worked well when Angela was younger
because I could use the toys for other parties and school and such. But now
we have no need for those toys and I'd rather just do the candy and dispose
of the leftovers. I would have given out pretzels or even chips had I found
any that we personally could have eaten had there been leftovers. But I
didn't find any.

sold in store or restaurants..


I feel the same way but... There are actually a lot of people with peanut
allergies who do not think that way. To me the peanut allergy is no worse
than other allergies because they too can affect people simply by contact or
breathing in the allergen.

same goes for sugar...we all need it to live and your steak will
eventually be converted to it..but eating a large amount of it pure
will harm you..so don't eat it..but to deny others it is silly.


True.

there's no difference between a snickers bar and eating toast with
honey and jam...in fact the toast would hit me much worse...


Perhaps.

if you were babysitting a child and they wanted toast and jelly would
you deny them it?...chastise parent for serving it?


Well, I probably would give them something else. Like an apple with peanut
butter. Or some baby carrots. I grew up eating mainly fruit or vegetables
for snacks. Popcorn was a common bedtime snack. Angela grew up pretty much
the same way. I never really ate jelly unless perhaps it was on a peanut
butter sandwich. She didn't have any jelly until a few years ago. She
discovered it in a restaurant and she wanted to try it with her French
fries. I did let her have it. She did have a few peanut butter and jelly
sandwiches when young, although they were not a favorite food. Then when we
discovered the peanut intolerance she did have a few sandwiches with
alternate nut/seed butters and jelly but again, she was not a fan. I don't
personally like jelly at all. If I do have a peanut butter sandwich, I
might put some no sugar, strawberry jam on it. Anything else is too sweet
for me and I just don't like it.

but ya know..to each their own...lol


Yeah.

Angela said she would like to give out Ghirardelli dark chocolate next year
and suggested the large bars. I told her we could do this. I don't mind
being generous on Halloween.

But I suppose there is always the possibility that he wasn't buying those
for himself. I often buy things for my mom now when I go to the store. And
when I had an elderly neighbor I would do her shopping too.

Sure, could have been. He was the elderly person in this case. LOL

lol..yes!..I always have that argument..sugar is sugar unless its been
modified like hfcs and even that doesnt hurt everyone..I got a pal who
drinks regular Pepsi all day and lives on candy and sweets and is rail thin
and very healthy...should I demand her to not eat that way because I cant?


my mom was a type one and she read all the magazines and would go all in on
whatever she read and would always end up in the ER..

she would cry "but they said swapping regular flour for bulgur wheat would
let me eat that!"..or "I replaced the bad regular sugar with fructose!".

sad...
