Wordless Wednesday –Where Has All the Candy Gone???

Could this stash be gone already???

Are your kids’ Halloween candy stashes disappearing yet? Have you helped the pile get a little smaller?

What is your post-Halloween plan to deal with all the candy? Do you throw some of it out? Do you “help” by eating some of it too? Or do your kids hoard it away for weeks and weeks?

See more of our Halloween photos and others who linked up in our Halloween 2013 Link Up.

We always end up with a ton of extra Halloween candy. I use it for the boys’ advent calendar!

I actually had to go out on Monday to BUY MORE CANDY since my kids noticed that Mom has been pilfering theirs! On http://jerseymomsblog.com there’s my article on 15 Practical Uses For Leftover Halloween Candy.

The candies with peanut / peanut butter were swiftly consumed by Dad (we have one with an allergy). Most of the other chocolate was swiped by Mom. The rest is ….you know what? I have no idea.

I put ours on the top of the fridge. I would like to say that was to keep the kids out but it was probably more to stop me. I love Halloween candy!

Our stash is almost gone too. We brought about 8 pounds to the dentist for the Halloween Buy Back but still had a good two pounds after that.

I was very proud of myself and did not make a single dent in my kid’s stash. Instead, I brought them to work the next day. As for my kiddo, I let him pick out four candies (he’s four), so he can have one each day. By the third day he already forgot all about it (so yes, there is an extra Hersheys candy in my cupboard should I *really* need a fix!).

The candy fairy comes to our house a week after Halloween (or Easter or 4th of July) and takes the candy to feed her babies. She leaves behind a little toy, the kids are more excited about her coming than eating the candy!

What a stash! We always end up with leftover and of course we totally eat it. Can’t let it go to waste!

Mommy and Daddy have helped the kids out a lot by eating their Halloween candy!
