  2. Cute post! I love candy corn…mixed with peanuts! I don't like it by itself. And…I completely skipped the end of your post filled with depressing calorie/fat gram content. LOL Hugs, Friend!

  3. Ha! Ha! Melinda, this is actually good information! I was going to eat a little bit tonight, but now I actually know how much is a little bit. Candy corn is my favorite but hubby bought Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Minis for tonight so that is my little bit for tonight. Happy Halloween!

  6. Happy Halloween. My favorite is Reeses. If something could just dole out 150 calories worth at a time...It's dangerous to have too much in the house.

    Most anything chocolate is good.
