Old School Halloween Candies
After a gooey sweet Halloween, I am crashing from my sugar high at full speed. In fact, there is a good chance I’ll get the shakes if I even look at another miniature chocolate bar. That is why it is necessary to officially ban myself from treats until…well…I don’t want to be rash, here so let’s say…five – no – three days. Yes that should do it.
The thing is, I do not even have an excuse for buying so much candy. Kids aren’t allowed to go door to door begging for hand outs in my building. But there I was in the Shoppers Drug Mart cashing in all of my points when I saw these:
I just had to have them. Every Halloween my grandmother would fill little paper sacks with gum and candy to hand out to the neighbourhood kids (I always got two bags). And every year the same items would be in them. Chicklets, just like above, and some other things. I bet you are dying to know what else those orange and black sacks held!
Of course, we would also make these:
Do you see how one little bag of Chicklets could open the floodgates? Once those buggers were in my cart, I could not seem to stop myself from throwing other candies in after them. Sigh. Time to hit the gym.
