On Halloween night, DD ate two mini packages of Whoopers and a mini Reeses.  The basket sat by the front door all week, untouched, even though she walked past it many times.  DH finally took it all to work.  It's weird, when it is blatantly available, she won't touch it...but if we go for long periods of time without it, she'll mention that she's craving chocolate.  She's more of salt person, like myself, which means I tend to have to limit the amount of salty things that make their way into the house rather than sweets.

I have 3 girls 16,14 and 6 yrs and we all love candy including DH so Halloween candy last maybe a week here at the most. I don't ration it out but I don't let them gorge themselves or limit when they can eat it except for the youngest one.

I did free reign, it's the 12th and they have almost all their candy left.  They were done when the chocolate was gone.  Dh asked if he could throw it away and they both said yes.  Not all kids really like candy that much.
