If you include the huge lollipops in the pictures above, they gave the kids candy totaling approximately 19,763 calories. Approximately.
It’s great fun for the kids. I put the candy on a high shelf out of their reach (Dylan could probably wipe out half the supply in one sitting if I left him to self-regulate his consumption), and let them pick out one or two pieces a day.
…is that I can’t put it on a shelf out of my reach.
And, like my five year old, I could wipe out half the supply in one sitting when left to self-regulate my own consumption.
Lucky for me (or for my hips at least), the kids know of my sweet tooth and keep their eye on me when I approach their candy bounty. Excessive candy thievery is not tolerated.
