Since the holidays, I've been having some issues cutting back on the sweets. The issue being that I don't want to. I feel the same way about having to wear pants again to go to work.
Back on track, I can't quit sweets because I love them. Cake, candy, pie, treats, you name it and I want it, and usually I want a handful of them. While I'm usually able to watch portion control and maintain my cravings, I have some candy vices that are like kryptonite and cause me to beeline right to the candy dish.
My brother's candy kryptonite is peanut M&M's. You get a bag of them near him and it's a scene from "when animal's attack." At Christmas, I lured him to sit near me to talk by putting the peanut M&M's within reach. And as I expected, he sat right next to me. *insert evil laugh*
But I can't judge my brother because I'm just as weak in front of temptation. This week, my weakness is Lindt Lindor truffles. A vendor sent them to me and I want to punch that guy in the wiener for tempting me so much.
So here is my list of the candy I cannot avoid. Reader beware, if you put any of the following candy near me, it could get ugly:
- Plain M&Ms
- Raisinets (or any chocolate covered raisins)
- Swedish Fish
- Frango mint chocolate (the dark chocolate version tastes like Thin Mints)
What candy or sweets are you unable to resist?
I'm a repeat offender when I snack and work on the computer. The handfuls of candy or food seem to subconsciously find it's way to my mouth and subsequently my stomach and hips.
Damn you candy!!! I wish I could quit you!
