Aloha Friday #21


Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog . Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the Mr. Linky there if you are participating.

Have you bought your Halloween candy yet?  If yes, when did you buy it?  If no, when will you be buying it?



I was in Costco today and saw they had a ton of candy out.  We try to buy our candy 1-2 weeks before Halloween.

P.S.  Don't forget to enter my Tupperware contest below.

I try to wait so that we don't eat too much but Hubby went to the commissary the other day & saw that it was out. Now I have tons of candy that I know will be gone before Halloween! Ugh...

Not yet... but there's plenty of time! There's no such thing as candy crisis here since Germans don't celebrate Halloween:P
Aloha!

Not yet, and not sure if I will. Can't remember the last time I had a trick or treater at my door.

Ave said...

Not yet.

Planning to buy candy today since its payday!

Andrea McMann said...

No way. Not until right before Halloween, or I'll eat it myself!!

Happy Aloha Friday! Here's mine: http://www.chocolatefingerprints.net/2009/10/aloha-friday-childhood-crushes.html

No..I'll wait until right before halloween or we'd eat it!

Auntie E said...

nope, I will not buy this year. the cost is way to high for my liking.

pam said...

I have bought some and the kids go nuts for it. I will buy my trick or treating candy about a week before. I make special bags for the neighbourhood kids.

TheAngelForever said...

No, we have not bought any yet. Not too sure what we'll get. Will watch the sales this weekend to see what to do.

AudreyO said...

I thought about buying some while at Costco yesterday but my daughter said we can get a better deal at the dollar store.

Annie said...

We don't buy Halloween candy since we don't get trick or treaters out here in the country!

Pamela M. Kramer said...

Not yet but when I do I will stick to candy I don't like. That way if it's left over I won't eat it. lol

blueviolet said...

I've learned that it's best to not buy it until the week of Halloween. Otherwise, I'll eat it.

Jennifer said...

I buy Halloween candy on 10/31.

Marie said...

We usually buy the candy that we give out right before Halloween -- so we're not tempted to eat it all. But we usually buy a couple bags of our favorites before then -- just for us :-)

Kara @ His, Hers and Ours said...

Nope. Not yet! Probably a week before I will buy it.

~ Noelle said...

haven't yet... that would be called TEMPTATION!

Baba said...

We live so far out in the country that we don't get trick or treaters so we don't buy it.

Flying Giggles and Lollipops said...

I have not bought it yet, probably about a week before Halloween. I do not want it staring me in the face all month long. If we already had it, I would probably eat it and need to go buy more before halloween.

Jennifer said...

I haven't yet because I know me: I'll rip that bag open and there won't be any candy left for Halloween! LOL!

Jenni Jiggety said...

I haven't yet...we will probably get ours at Costco, too!

{Kiki} said...

bought some brach's candy corn and kraft caramels the other day. i have loved them both since i was a kid. aloha and take care.

JamericanSpice said...

I haven't yet...maybe sometime later in October...like closer to the sales :)

Smellyann said...

Haven't bought it yet. I probably will sometime in the 2nd half of the month, when I catch a good sale that matches my coupons.

kailani said...

I usually buy towards the end of the month when they go on sale. :-)

Elle said...

We never have any trick-or-treaters come to our house, but for some reason I still buy a bag or two.

LZ @ My Messy Paradise said...

We never have trick or treaters, but I always buy one bag, usually the day of. I don't always get my favorites, but that, I guess, is s good thing!

mommablogsalot said...

No I still don't know what we'll be doing for halloween, as in, are we staying home, going out, when where, etc. I'd kind of like to decide that first.

Kristen Andrews said...

this sounds terrible but we don't hand out candy at our house, our street doesn't get that many kids so we take our kiddo to trick or treat at my parents and my mom always buys so much candy I don't bother

diana said...

i usually buy it the day before halloween because i never quite know what my plans are. if i'm not going to be home, then why buy any? plus, it's cheaper then.

Jen said...

I'm such a procrastinator. I'll probably buy it a few days before Halloween or later.

Brandi said...

I'm not going to buy halloween candy, for the simple fact that we don't get trick or treaters...they have a thing in our town where they shut down main street, and all the businesses hand out candy...making it safer for the kids, and they get a lot of candy. If I bought some, I would just end up eating it. :)

IE Mommy said...

No, no Halloween candy. We don't really celebrate this holiday. We do go to church and participate in Hallelujah night so if we buy candy it is donated.


Thanks for swinging by the IE Mommy's Aloha Friday!
