Mmm. Candy pumpkins. They are so much better than candy corn. Candy corn gets hard once you open a package and they hit the air. Candy pumpkins stay chewy and fresh much longer.
I just ate a handful of them. When Dr. Linda Bacon recommends eating a "variety of real food, primarily plants" in her book Health at Every Size® I suspect she does not categorize candy pumpkins as a health food like I do. They're orange. That's beta carotene, right? I'm eating my colors. They're pumpkins. That's a plant, right? I'm following Dr. Bacon's advice.
I guess the Trick or Treat's on me. Happy Halloween!
