      I was just informed …

      so I was given this …

       

      No worries/no complaints here.  B-)   I wonder if our heavenly bodies will be like this? :unsure:

      One guy suggested getting an old thick book and carving out a space in the pages deep enough to hold a few chocolate candy bars and leave on the coffee table in plain sight.  But if I  did that … my dog has such a strong scent … he would go after that book and tear it apart and then eat the chocolates! B-)

      One lady had a problem in work with her male co-workers stealing her chocolates at her desk.  So she brought in a tampon box and filled it with snicker bars and that solved that problem.  They didn’t dare open THAT box. :mdrmdr:

      Another had a problem with her DOT candies so she did this …

       

      Have any of you combined the same looking candies in one large bowl?

       

      This lady did at work and some guy freaked out … :mdrmdr:

      You never know where someone will look and why they are looking there. When I was a kid we were not allowed to leave the table until we finished our meal. One day my mom gave me a fried fish sandwich for lunch. I was a very finicky eater back then ( I was six or seven) and didn’t like fish sandwiches but I knew I had to eat it or I would be stuck at the table. My mom left the room and as I sat there I saw the antique coffee grinder in the next room and though “Hey! I’ll hide the sandwich in there and afterwards will through it away”. Great plan! My mom knew no better and off I went. Well, I forgot to go back to dispose of the evidence. Fast forward to Thanksgiving that year. We are all sitting around the dining room table when my grandfather, who was telling a story, reached over to the coffee grinder and picked it up. That’s when I remembered the fish sandwich hidden in the little drawer where the coffee grinds go. And wouldn’t you know it. He just had to pull that stupid drawer out while telling his story and there it was in all of its moldy glory! LOL :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr:

      Tweety saying that this looks like a safe place to hide and actually going into a can of cat food is hilarious.

      One of the disadvantages of getting along in years is that all my grandchildren are now too old to go trick-or-treating.  Sigh.  :cry:

      I used to have a grandson living in our home who disliked chocolate.  Can you imagine such a thing?? He would open his sack, take out all the chocolate he had received, and put it into a bowl.  Yum! :yes:

      Oh I can’t imagine not liking chocolate!   I did know someone who was allergic to chocolate and it was hard for him to watch everyone else eating it.

      What non chocolate candy is left … licorice, smarties, paydays, lollipops, starbursts, good n plenty, taffy, small box of raisins, candy corn?   I’m sure you LOVED his stash of chocolates!!! :mdrmdr:

      So was your grandson’s candy pile like this? :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr:

       

      I stopped trick or treating from 5th grade on because I had a paper route … 200 customers and then narrowed it down to 150 because collecting took over 2 hrs on a Saturday.  I kept the really nice customers and they were so generous. Their mailboxes were up to their front door and that is where I would place their newspaper vs. throwing it on the lawn or in the driveway.  So they were ready for anybody approaching their doorstep. I didn’t even have to wear a costume they had the tray or bucket of REAL size candy bars (no fun sizes) and they wanted me to take 2 and sometimes 3 bars. :whistle:    I said to this one lady I don’t even have a bag to put these in. She said hold on … then she came back from her kitchen with a brown paper shopping bag with handles. LOL. I had to walk back home to dump the bag it was so heavy and then go back out to deliver to the rest of the customers.

      My dad would say every night without fail … ok gimme what you got … hand over the chocolates!  So I gave him the ones I didn’t like (3 musketeers, any chocolate without the nuts, etc). :mdrmdr:     I kept my candy in a long cardboard box underneath my bed.  My supply lasted almost till Christmas time.

      This year you wonder what people are going to do since times are tough  … will they resort to doing this ….

      And will kids be confused going to the wrong places  :scratch:  … :mdrmdr:

      Or will kids resort to sending their dogs out in their place begging for candy?

      I don’t think I’ve posted anything on these threads yet and I can’t believe there’s 5 of them already lol

      But anyway I bought some beautiful looking brownies yesterday and thought I’d take a picture and post it before I eat them all.

      I usually like to put 1 in the microwave for about 15 seconds before I put some vanilla ice cream on top and eat them : )

        “Speed it up!”   :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr:     Love the colorized version. :yes:

         

        And “Leaving Soon”  those brownies look yummo … and warming them up/putting ice cream on top!  :good:   So glad you decided to post on this sweet thread.    Ok …. how about “fruitcake”?   For some reason not to many here want to be part of the millennium “Soirée Fruitcake dessert club”  :unsure:    Just trying to recruit :mail:  more to join in on the parties.   B-)

            :mdrmdr:

            The irony is … this cake is considered a Roman soldier “survival cake”  and in the midst of this pandemic and with the stores running out of food … the other day I noticed in this one local store they have the candied fruit in the plastic containers stacked up.   I’m seriously thinking on buying some to make a cake since it will take years before it goes bad.

            And those that are not a fan of fruitcake … can you just see it now … they maybe forced to eat it to survive this winter and perhaps they will learn to like it?   B-)  Or perhaps not.  :mdrmdr:

      It’s emergency food for a reason. You only eat it as a last resort. ;-)
