Whazzup??

My children will certainly cringe when they see the title of this post--all the more reason to use it!! (insert evil laugh and smug grin)

Have ya been shopping lately at good old Wally World or Hobby Lobby? Even the Dollar Tree is getting in on the act. My calendar rea
ds September 1--not even officially autumn yet. School has barely started. Temps while cooler are still nice and warm.

So what is up with Halloween candy and Christmas decorations being out already? Now some things I'm not complaining about. I have a favorite food for every season and I dearly love me some Brach's pumpkins. In fact
, I'm partaking of a few (handfuls) right now. And due to these little bites of deliciousness being available already, I'll more than likely ingest several bags before October 31. I just wish retailers wouldn't be in such a rush. Time flies at breathtaking speed now!

Not a fan of the pumpkins, but I am a fan of the miniature cadbury eggs for Easter so I wish they would have a seasonal isle year-round stocked with all the Holiday goodies that we wait so "patiently" for!!!!

I will tell you why they put things out so early, because efficient organized consumers (yes that's right, we will consume our stash) will buy them early, sneak into them and realize they need to replenish (every week or so) until the holiday thus sales triple or quadruple for the candymakers. They are evil it tell ya, just evil.
Of course I am speaking generally, not that I would do that. tee hee

I thought the very same thing!!! But you know, you encourage them by buying 3 bags of pumpkins before Halloween rather then your normal one... that is why they do it! :-) LOL! They get me every easter with the cadbury eggs. It is crazy all right.

I just bought candy corn today! What a coincidence. I even thought about you and the pumpkins when I was doing it. I'm a sucker for the Cadbury eggs too. And Peeps, gross as they are. When Christmas comes, it'll be those chocolate oranges... Yum... Now I wish I had bought another bag of candy corn!
