    I cannot stop eating candy corn! And chocolate! And anything else sweet. Its ridiculous :rofl: I'm going to gain 30lbs between now and Halloween at this rate.

    Halloween candy should be off limits to pregnant women!

    (just wait till its actually Halloween)

    Wow yeah you'll be close by then!!


    I've decided that they need to have all the candy put in one section in the stores, roped off with security guards keeping the pregnant women out.

    No self control.

    May sound a funny request but would anyone be willing to ship me some candycorn over here to the uk?? I absolutely ADORE the stuff and got addicted to it while on holiday a fewyears back. there is just NOTHING like it over here that comes close.
    I can get it online from a couple of websites but at STUPID prices... You get it mahoosive bags!!! :)

    Obviously I would pay for the goodies and shipping.. just need a kind person out there who accepts paypal ;)

    puuuuurlllleeeease????

    I love love love halloween, for this reason especially! Although for me, it's not so much the candy corn as it is the suckers. I am oh so addicted to suckers, especially the Tootsie Pop ones. Mmmmm.... tootsie pops..... *drools*

    Yeah we get peeps at easter (and possibly halloween but I can't remember for sure). I'm not really into them so much. I like the chocolate coated marshmellows better :D


    And we wonder why North America is the most obese continent on the planet...:rofl:

    ummmmm choccy choccy choccy!!! Make the most of the sweets Rae, only a few more weeks of 'excuses' left!! For all those Brits out there my friend has taught me the most satisfying passtime in the whole world. Get a packed of Cadburys Chocolate Fingers. Make a cup of tea. Bite both ends of a finger and use it like a straw to suck up the tea. As soon as the tea comes up, put the whole thing in your mouth and it will all dissolve in a biscuity chocolatey slice of heaven. If you are wondering, yes I have consumed a whole packet doing this..... yyuuuuuuummmm

    Ohh i spent £10 on a big massive bucket of sweeties from tesco! its so bad, all the christmas selection boxes and halloween candy all being out at the same time really isnt a good idea!

    As for 'candy' i took a big craving for bit-o-honeys and ordered a bulk box off an american candy website and a bulk box of milk duds in the middle of my pregnancy hehe!

    should've got osme hot tamales..mmm hot tamales!

    I'm actually due on Halloween!

    I'm usually a sucker for dressing up and normally have a Halloween party. Not risking it this year though! *wahhhh*

    Never had a sweet tooth before this pregnancy and not even when having DS but I feel ashamed to admit that I had half a huge chocolate sponge cake for breakfast yesterday! My midwife High-fived me when I told her lol!!

    Tell me about it! Everytime I go to the store I have to buy a bag of candy corn or chocolate! I keep telling myself to stop or I'm going to gain way too much but I just can't help it. It tastes SO good! Darn Halloween.
