Easter Candy Impulse

Oh no! I stopped by the grocery store last night to pick up something quick and was confronted by a HUGE display of Cadbury chocolate eggs.  Not just any run-of-the-mill Easter candy, but my nemesis, the Cadbury egg.  I don’t know why I like these, but I really do.

How do I keep myself from temptation for the next six weeks?

  2. As far as I know, there are no addictive candies associated with May Day, Flag Day or the 4th of July. If you just stay away from the grocery store for six weeks, you’ll be home free.

    Occasional Caroline’s (new address!)

    I must remember…
    Turkey on Thanksgiving,
    Pudding on Christmas,
    Eggs on Easter,
    Chicken on Sunday,
    Fish on Friday,
    Leftovers, Monday,
    But ah, me—I’m such a dunce.
    I went and ate them all at once.
