What The Mouse Didn’t Eat Wednesday
I know many people dread Halloween, especially if they are trying to stick to a healthy diet. I used to be tempted by Reese’s peanut butter cups, but now I prefer dark chocolate or something with salted caramel, so I usually don’t care for fun-sized candy bars. If you are still wondering how you will get through the day–or how to resist the leftovers people will bring into the office–this picture might help you avoid eating Halloween candy.
Last winter, we had a mouse (mice?) in our pantry. When I was cleaning off the shelves, I discovered this pile on the top shelf, behind our baking supplies. Nearby was an empty bag of holiday M&Ms that we never got around to using in our Christmas cookie baking.
As you can see in the picture, the mouse ate the chocolate centers, but left the candy coating shells. The mouse who nibbled through a plastic bag decided that the candy coating shells were not edible. Now if that isn’t scary ….
Whenever I am tempted by M&Ms I think of this picture, and remind myself:
If it’s not good enough for a mouse, it’s not good enough for me!
Have you ever had a mouse in your house?
Are you tempted by Halloween candy?
