    My favorite thing about Halloween is all the costumes! I don’t have too much of a sweet tooth, so I don’t worry too much about limiting candy.

    What a great option for PWD’s! I have seen the unreal candy in stores and wondered what it was. May have to try it sooner than later.

    My favorite thing about Halloween is probably enjoying spooky TV/movies. My best trick for not eating too much candy is to not keep too much of it in my house!

    My favorite part of Halloween is our local Halloween Run, a pick-your-distance, costumes encouraged, casual small-town affair. Every year someone goes above and beyond and comes out with some outrageous costume to run in, the most notable (IMO) was the Nightstand, but there’s also been some pretty good cheerleaders (always played out by a 40yr old man), a Star Wars family with 2 kids in their stroller-turned-starship, Beekeepers chasing their little bees (ie the kids), and so on.

    My favorite thing about Halloween is watching my kids run around and have a great time! I don’t have diabetes my 9 year old daughter does. And we treat her just like my other 2 kids. When she gets home we look through all her candy, she decides what she wants we prebolus and she EATS!! I never restrict candy from her. She does have to wait a little longer if she is high, but never misses out. And usually with all the walking and excitement from Halloween her numbers are AWESOME!! DMProducts

    DM Products. The best thing I can do is not go down the candy aisle after Halloween and buy all the reduced prize candy. If I do, I try and limit myself to only 1 fun-size candy/day. Bolusing for candy is always difficult and doesn’t always work out the way it think it will!

    DM products sound great! I love reading Halloween stories to my students. My trick for my t1 daughter is to let her choose one piece to take to school in her lunch. That’s what I’d do even if she didn’t have t1!

    My fav part of halloween is helping my girls choose their costume. My “trick” is to trade any candy that can’t be used to effectively treat lows for a small prize/toy.

    We used to have Unreal Candy at my local Michaels, and it’s really good. There may be an ongoing issue with shelf life, as my last purchase was a multipack of single-wrapped PB cups from my local CVS, and they were melted and the saturated fat (coconut or palm oil) separated out and beaded on the exteriors (yuck!). I;ve tried the “original” SF Werthers and they were also definitely worth buying again.

    DMPRODUCTS – what I love about Halloween is DRESSING UP!!!! I’m a huge costume freak. I’m ok with avoiding candy. I’ll have one or two small fun bars and that’s it. I’m all about the costumes.

    I have always cared so much more about the costumes than the candy – even Pre D as a little kid. That made it a bit easier for me once dx’d. I agree with MIke on the ‘real’ candy versus sugar free debate, but not on the candy corn and pumpkins Yuck! Gimme some red licorice and peeps and no one will get hurt. DMProducts

    My favorite thing about halloween is seeing the kids in costumes and having a good time… That said One hint I have about dealing with halloween… obtaining some high quality dark chocolate bars… theres too much mockolate on the market these days and if i’m going to eat candy, it should be bolusworthy, and dark chocolate doesn’t seem to have as high of a sugar content as milk or other stuff… Though i still have a weakness for almond joy, frozen, reese’s pb cups, red licorice and dots……

    My trick for not eating too much candy at Halloween is to occupy myself with a good scary movie!
