When the willpower to "Just So No!" simply won't work, here is a quick checklist that I found on some of the more popular candy bars (and sizes) and the carbs they contain. When a candy craving tricks you into having a treat, there are some indulgences that are better than others. Find out what they are:

Since it seems most of the kids in my neighborhood go elsewhere, I just gave up. There would be more leftover than I want hanging around the house. I try to be very careful with my "chocolate allowance". If I don't buy it, then it's not hanging around to tempt me. Also, that's more money for yarn. Lol

It's around the corner again, friends… Halloween! I found the link on this post that dates back years but was just updated last month. One of my pet peeves is when the Diabetes Nazis start hounded me about my nutrition and conditions more than their own. Why is it important to spend my carb allowances for me? As a responsible adult, I take offense to others telling me to eat an apple instead of a candy bar when having a snack attack? Can any of you relate?

This is a great list and I am glad to see that Smarties (one of my favorites) is only 6 carbs for a whole roll of them! Fantastic. I didn't get any this year though, I had to go cold turkey. But I gave in on tottsie pops.
