062/366: Fun-Size Candy Mountain

Another busy day, so you get another kind of lazy shot. But, hey, everybody wants to know how the kids did trick-or-treating, right? So here's The Pip's share of the Halloween haul:

The Pip's Halloween candy. The Pip's Halloween candy.

I weighed both his plastic pumpkin full of candy and the Tupperware container that SteelyKid's stuff is in, and they each came out between 1.1 and 1.2 kg. So, a bit over 1kg each (after taking out the weight of the containers)-- not bad for an hour's work.

The funny part is that The Pip has turned into an exceptionally picky eater, and won't eat... any of this, really. He was super excited to get it, but has eaten bits of about three candy bars, and declared that he doesn't like them. He prefers the Dove dark chocolate we keep on hand in Chateau Steelypips, so Kate and I will be eating a good deal of this...

Smart kid.

Wow, the world sure has changed since I was a kid. The density of houses with candy was a LOT higher. Talk about feeding your inner diabetic back then!
