Halloween Candy & Season’s 52 (WIAW)

Before we discuss what I ate yesterday, let’s take a quick look at the amount of candy that arrived home via my son’s trick or treat bag Monday night.

Every Halloween I think he comes home with more Halloween candy than the year before but that’s probably because I forget just how much candy he can collect! This was a serious amount of candy this year, a serious amount.

I was asked on Instagram which my favorite candy is to have from the pile but my response isn’t a short, one candy answer so let me explain my reply:

When I was a kid, I loved the peanut butter cups and 3 Musketeers.

As I got a little older, I was ALL about the m&m’s.

This year I randomly put myself on the hunt for Hershey’s Kisses (found none) and box of Dots. I don’t love the sugary/chewy candy but found myself in the mood for little box of Dots randomly but we got none!

So, from this year’s Halloween candy, I had:

Every Hershey’s chocolate bar I could find in the pile (not the Hershey’s miniatures but not the giant bars, there’s a tiny size in between).

A few fun size bags of m&m’s

A bag of Reeses Pieces

Note: Mixing m&m’s with other types of chocolate really doesn’t taste good. I have always known this and should have remembered it when I chose to have the m&m’s after the Hershey’s bars.

Moving on to what I ate yesterday….


Did you think I would eat something other than oatmeal? I had my usual pre-run oatmeal with banana and then had my post-run oatmeal and blueberries with Skoop B-Strong in an almost empty peanut butter jar.

Just a simple egg sandwich with sauerkraut on toasted cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread. I got the eggs and sauerkraut combination idea from Jen at Peanut Butter Runner. I really like it!

By the way, I salt the eggs real good with sea salt while they are cooking which is an essential component to completing this sandwich for me.

My son was going with his dad to the Islanders game so in between his fun, I went out for dinner at Season’s 52. I am not really sure what I ate but I ordered the vegetarian tasting and it was delicious. We also had a tuna tartare thing and brussels sprouts.

Season’s 52 is known for their small desserts. Of course I had the chocolate one. Actually, I had two of the chocolate ones, who could eat only one of these and call it dessert? Way too small!

    We have so much candy left over. I have been eating mostly the M & Ms. But I wish we had some reeses. There is alot of candy I don’t like leftover too- like starburst and nerds. By the end of the night we were trying to give handfuls of candy to the kids who were coming around but Im sure their parents were hating us!

    My favorite Halloween candy always changes from year to year. But I am usually always a fan of Milky Ways. And YES M&M’s DO NOT taste good with other chocolate, isn’t that so weird. I love combining M&M’s with candy corn and popcorn 🙂 And what kind of sauerkraut do you buy? I have been wanting to try incorporating some into my meals.

      chipotle day sounds like a great idea, we can’t always bring lunch, it’s nice to mix it up! my son is a little old for dressing up (although the girls do still at this age) but he did wear his islanders jersey and put on a fake mustache to look like one of the islanders.

    Those small-but-not-mini Hershey bars have my heart and I cannot explain it. I’m so not a milk chocolate person 99% of the time, but I adore those specific ones!
    I go through such food phases and this made me realize it’s been ages since I’ve had eggs. Craziness. But they sound really good with sauerkraut, so I’ll have to give that a try soon!

    Now that’s a seriously impressive stash! I handed out candy this year and snacked on some between groups of kids. Mostly KitKats and Coffee Crisps, which have always been my favourite. I like anything wafer-y with chocolate and cream. Aaaand now I’m craving one.
