  1. Bridgette — yep, THAT’S why it’s too early. Just before dusk on Halloween seems to be the optimal purchasing time, and then I don’t buy anything I like too much!

  2. It’s not much of a concern in UK. There’s a little trick-or-treating but it’s not the festival it seems to be in US. Anyway, sweets are bad for your teeth and your skin . . . 😉

    • Jabblog — the fact that they are bad for me doesn’t stop me from eating candies if they are in the house, so I prefer them NOT to be in the house!

  3. You’re right, no hurry — some of it’s left over from last year anyhow and put back on the shelves, probably… LOL

    Living on a farm we don’t have that problem, but I always end up making a cake for the kids. Then of course I also end up ‘helping’ them eat it. *sigh* Damn Halloween.

  4. Hey Quilly, you’d really better hurrry,
    If you want it, here it is, come and get it.
    Mm, make your mind up fast.
    If you want it any time, I can give it,
    but you better hurry ’cause it may not last.

    I buy some every week! I hope to hit the ‘after Halloween’ sales Sunday so I can add to my stash.

  5. I agree because if we buy it now it will just be eaten by the kids in the house….ok, or maybe by the “big kids” in the house! Happy 6WS

  6. OH! I forgot SWS! I’ll go do one! This is sO true! I’d have it all eaten LONG before Halloween. But we don’t buy it anyway… no one comes! THIS year we will buy some and pass it out as we go along with Luz!

    • Melli — we weren’t here last year for dinner, so we don’t know whether we’ll have trick-or-treaters or not. I am wondering about our gate. Will they open it and come in?

  7. I´m so glad I don´t have to have that temptation as well! Halloween is not celebrated here. But it does hold some “sweet” memories! 🙂

  8. Yep. Of course it’s only been on the shelves since, what, August?!

    We only get anywhere from 0-3 trick-or-treaters at our house anyway. We are at the end of an older neighborhood.

    My SWS: Third day straight: enough headaches already!

    • Linda — sorry to hear about the headaches! I occasionally get migraines. Bad stuff.

      We don’t know how many tick-or-treaters we will get. I am thinking our gated yard might cause many to pass us by. We are surrounded by tall hedges and there is almost no view of the street.

  9. Too early, yes, because I would definitely eat it. And then there’s the part where my husband buys three bags and we get about 7 kids to the house.

    Thanks for playing 6WS!

    • Cate — when we first moved to Hawaii we lived in a big condo complex full of kids, so we bought half a store’s worth of candy. No one — no one — came to our door. Later we learned that the home owners association had banned trick-or-treating! We had frozen Snicker’s bars for months!

  10. Here in PA, we do not trick or treat on the actual holiday, Halloween. Neighborhoods have designated nights to trick or treat and our’s happens to fall on Tuesday, Oct. 27. So for me, it really isn’t too early to buy Halloween candy. LOL
