Halloween Candy: Giveaway 1

As the proud owner of two crowns I have received advice from the dentist about how to avoid cavities. Although they tell me my cavities "aren't my fault" (whatever the heck that means) I also have a pretty close relationship with dentists. I remember watching my first root canal in a mirror when I was nine. It was fascinating- I was bleeding but it didn't hurt. I know to explain that my nerve on the left bottom is flat and wide so they can numb it all.
I read my father in law's orthodontic journals for fun.
I also love Halloween candy. one of my dentists told me that I should avoid any candy that is sticky to help me avoid cavities. I don't know if you've ever thought about it but basically every good candy is sticky. the displays for halloween taunt me. Milk duds for example, are very sticky and very good. I am sucking a piece of residual caramel off of my tooth right now. Those little give away packets are usually about the right size for your candy craving, except those darned milk duds packages. I don't know about you but I don't usually think to myself- I could go for two to four milk duds right now. You grab your little box and try to pry open the super strong glue and wait for your four milk duds. I only grab one box at a time- I am trying to be healthy after all. Then you get one of the crappy boxes with two.
It's only when you grab five boxes that you find one with the four plus a tiny extra piece. Oh wait- who can I share this box with, two milk duds fill me right up. Pretty soon you've convinced yourself that it's OK to eat another box- after all just walking to the candy bag across the room probably burns off three milk duds.
It isn't until I'm sitting at the computer writing a blog post surrounded by eight mini boxes that I think maybe I shouldn't have eaten so much. Eight Boxes probably equals about 32 milk duds. Is that more or less than is in a normal box? I always feel like a whole box of milk duds is too much candy for me, but not with the tiny boxes. Maybe I would actually eat the equivalent of several boxes.
What is your favorite Halloween candy?
In honor of my love of the entire bag of milk dud Halloween candy I consumed this week I am giving away a bag of Milk duds to one of my blog readers/friends. Because I think it's funny. What do you have to do to win? Leave a comment with the number of crowns you have. Pending crowns count.
and that is pure fun.
I will mail it next monday: Sept 27, so comment before then people.

I don't have any crowns. I do, however, have some sealants. Does that count?

No crowns, just a tiara. I do however love milk duds and I look forward to eating them if I don't die from my oven's self-cleaning fumes.

No crowns, although I also thought you meant tiaras, of which I have one. Hooray relatively healthy teeth! Milk Duds will fix that though. Perfect movie food.

No crowns, no sealants... but a bad case of TMJ, which means I'm not supposed to have anything chewy. Of course, what's my favorite? CHEWY! Milk Duds are great, but I LOVE Riesens. Also: Haribo gummy bears and Swedish fish. Yum. Ok, craving sugar now....

I have a crown, and I'm pretty sure my love of sticky candy made my crown recently break...so I shouldn't win this competition. LOL.

I don't think I have crowns...maybe one. I've never had a root canal, but I DO have fillings in every (I think) molar and have had to replace nearly all of the silver fillings that I got when I was younger than 10 recently. I loved the dentist, even though I was there all the time. The laughing gas may have had something to do with that.
I LOVE any Halloween candy, but especially Reeses shaped like pumpkins, but I'm really not picky, except I won't eat those nasty taffy in the orange and black wrappers. Who buys those anyway?

Ugh everyone sounds so lucky, I have 2 and will probably need another soon. It doesn't help I have a sweet tooth.


Hello there! My name is June (September 21, 2010 at 9:43 PM)  

This is too fun...I have to comment! No crowns here. Not a fan of milk duds either, but do love candy a bunch. I have a serious sweet tooth. Junior mints in the halloween packs are just as you describe your milk dud packs. You hope to get 5 & end up with 2 & 3 boxes later...it's hard to stop!

Zero crowns, but two fillings. But I don't like Milk duds, so don't pick me! Unless you are sending candy corn. Crap, I'm on a diet. Forget it!

no crowns, but you should probably pick me to win. I'm sure that eating a whole bag of milk duds will help send me on my way to the first.

The Blind Spot (September 22, 2010 at 1:54 PM)  

Same here, I've got 2! One of them being replaced with a new one - does that count as my third? ;) About eating several small boxes: Alex does the same trick on himself with cake. He always cuts off just a very thin slice, but he repeats that about ten times and thinks he didn't eat that much cake ;) I have to go eat some Schweinsöhrchen right now ;)

I have no crowns, but I'm pretty sure I paid for that root canal you enjoyed watching, and I love milk duds.
