Halloween, a.k.a. wanton candy gorge fest

Most parents I know groan when the subject of Halloween comes up because they know the evil temptation of single-serving sin will flow like water for weeks. Worse yet is the threat to mommies’ waistlines as said candy calls out from the cabinet where we stealthy stashed it away from fiendish fingers. I’m not sure if such indulgence is worse or better that the Before Children excesses associated with Halloween night.

But if gorge fest we must endure, might as well minimize the guilt, which is what appealed to me about these suckers by YummyEarth. I happened upon them at Durango Natural Foods. They’re organic and packed with vitamin C but still sure to be better received by young trick-or-treaters than, say, an orange. They also tout being: egg-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, high fructose corn syrup-free, wheat-free, soy-free, MSG-free and made with 100 percent natural colors and flavors.

And they’re tasty (not that I’ve been snitching or anything).
