Maybe you made the mistake of buying Halloween candy too early. Maybe you bought the candy you like and not what children like. Then you mistakenly thought, I’ll just have one piece of candy from the bag, after all, there’s plenty.

But, once the bag is open, there’s the “Just one more piece” factor. Soon, you’re making another run to the store for more. This time, don’t make the mistake of getting chocolate candy. Research shows adults like chocolate candies more than fruit-flavored sweets that kids favor.

Kids favor fruit-flavored and very sugary candies such as Smarties, Sour Patch Kids and Starburst. Adults answer to the siren song of the dark mistress, the cocoa bean, chocolate candy such as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey’s Kisses and Kit Kat Minis.

One anomaly is M&Ms, both groups like them.

Buy carefully, because you may have to deal with leftovers, and then the scale... And then the Dentist, the Doctor for diet and diabetes meds....
