Well, #10 ain't gonna happen. I like the others, though. :)

Colette said...

This is not a problem we usually have!

Ricardo MiƱana said...

Hola Carol pasaba a saludarte y desear tengas un feliz fin de semana.
un abrazo.

Slamdunk said...

Clever list Carol. Since I don't eat candy, I am the assigned candy monitor and certainly it is a full time job this year.

Linda Kage said...

Okay, I'm stuck on number one now!! He, he!

I read somewhere that some kid donated all her candy to troops overseas. Geesh, made the piece of snickers stole from my toddler's Halloween basket taste like cardboard.

What is this leftover Halloween candy you speak of? There's supposed to be leftovers?

Laura Eno said...

Leftovers? We usually have to go buy more due to snacking on it beforehand. :)

Talli Roland said...

Haha! Carol, this first one made me grin! The BEDROOM! :) I like it. Ahem.

Clarissa Draper said...

There are enough people living in my house that candy doesn't last long.

LR said...

Luckily my husband ate all the candy. Thank goodness.

Happy weekend!

Unless it's Hot Tamales for #10. That would really heat things up, but not in the desired way I think. Have a great weekend!

E.R. King said...

I like the milkshake idea. I also think it would be cool to batter the mini chocolate bars and deep fry them. I hear it's killer, on my thighs.

lbdiamond said...

Hahahahaha! Love the last suggestion. Guess what I'm doing tonight. ;)

VR Barkowski said...

Count me in the, what leftover Halloween candy? camp. Of course, several stores have candy clearanced. *Thinking hard on #1*

Elspeth Antonelli said...

This is not a problem in my house. I have 3 teenagers. Keeping food of any sort around for more than a few days is problematic.

Mason Canyon said...

Great list for Halloween candy, especially #1. :) Have a great weekend.

Julie said...

I'm dying for a milkshake now, yum. #1 cracked me up, LOL. #10 would be a crime!

Have a great weekend! :)

Empty Nest Insider said...

I'm with Julie, the milkshake is a great choice! The bedroom idea is the most fun, but a safer alternative might be the shower!

Carol Kilgore said...

Linda G - LOL!

Colette - Good for you.

Ricardo - Happy Weekend to you, too.

Slamdunk - Beware the Candy Monitor :)

Linda K - Not surprised - LOL.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Take it into the bedroom? My imagination goes wild....

Carol Kilgore said...

Karen - Live-In Handyman's office is upstairs. Wouldn't quite do here :)

L.G. - New phenomenon here. Usually we run out.

Laura - Naughty!

Talli - :)

Clarissa - And that's a good thing!

Tracy Jo said...

Ooooh! It is going to be an exciting Friday night with bedroom candy. :-) I don't know why but I got the giggles about "put it in a milkshake". Happy weekend!

Carol Kilgore said...

LR - Husbands can be handy that way!

Julie - Might be a hot autumn night - LOL.

Emily - I forgot about fried chocolate bars. I've never had one.

Laura - Have fun!

VR - Of course you are :)

Shirley Wells said...

LOL, I love #1. For some obscure reason, we never have leftovers in this house...

Have a great weekend!

Carol Kilgore said...

Elspeth - Totally understandable.

Mason - Thanks! You, too :)

Julie - A Top 3 List!

Julie - I didn't think about the shower....

Carol Kilgore said...

Alex - You're going home and looking for the candy, aren't you?

Tracy Jo - Giggles are funny like that :)

Shirley - The goblins eat it all :)

Southpaw said...

I am shocked and dismayed by number 10.

Carol Kilgore said...

Holly - Toss no candy before its time.

Journaling Woman said...

You forgot put it in a casserole like we do leftover turkey.

:)

Carol Kilgore said...

Teresa - LOL!

Joanne said...

We can use this list here in CT. Halloween was just about cancelled for the kiddies this year, with the extensive outages and downed wires and trees :/ So there must be lots of bags of unused candy hanging around the homes!

Carol Kilgore said...

I'm happy to see you're back online. What a wicked trick for Halloween.

Janet, said...

They all sound pretty interesting. I think I'll just eat all the good ones, it never gets tossed away.Of course, I'm going to gain a few pounds.

Carol Kilgore said...

Janet - Probably all of us are finding a few extra pounds :)

Arlee Bird said...

This is the first year in a long time that I don't have any Halloween candy left over since I didn't buy any this year. But I'd never throw it away.
