It seems so simple. You go to the store, pick up a few bags of candy, hand out treats on Halloween, and save a few for later. But for some people… like me, there is some serious thinking involved in picking out Halloween candy!

candy bars opt Halloween Candy Buying Stategy Is Serious Business!Some parents buy mini versions of their favorite candy bar because, heck, if they’re going to have leftovers, they might as well be something they love. Other moms and dads get the latest, trendy candy that kids will dig. Maybe you try to be somewhat healthy and offer fruit gummies or fruit roll-ups? Or, You avoid candy altogether, and hand out Halloween-themed pencils, erasers and/or any other generally ghoulish-looking trinket you can find?

I do the same thing every year, and always swear that “I won’t do THAT again!” I buy MY favorite kinds of candy bars, and I buy them early–telling myself that I am ‘beating the rush’ to get the ‘good stuff’ before it sells out! Then our family eats almost all of them before Halloween, and then we have to buy more for the ‘trick-or-treaters.’  I have not stocked up this year yet….but every time I go to the grocery store or Costco, it’s a serious battle going on in my mind.

What about you….what is your Halloween ‘candy buying strategy?
