Muskateer Madness


I know my daughter will have to take some toys or treats to school for Easter.  So, I splurge.  I buy a bag of cheap toys and a bag of candy.  I make sure to choose a type of candy that doesn’t tempt me.  I have a past, issue.

I, innocently, end up opening the package of candy, for a perfectly good reason.  Hmmm…it’s a little hard to remember just what that reason was now.

Then!  I discover I can’t live without those luscious melting Muskateers and they’re so small, it’s really no big deal.  All things in moderation–that’s what I always say.  I can eat two, three, or four, or…the whole bag.

What just happened?

Grumpy Mom Goal of the Season: Only granola bites and fruit leathers for Easter this year. 


  1. Ohhh, I've never tried those! They sound delicious! When I was shopping for the Mia and Manuel's Easter basket, and choosing candy, I would pick a piece and say, “Oh, I would like this” or “Oh Manny (my husband) would ike that.” Mia is too little to eat candy, so it's fair game! 🙂

  2. It is so easy to do. I have been known to eat a whole bag of candy ounce or twice 🙂

  3. easter tootsie rolls are my down fall – ate a whole bag … by myself … in just TWO days :/

  4. I do the same thing! I'm a teacher so I get all the leftovers the kids don't want. Sometimes it's yuck candy like jolly ranchers but sometimes it's oreos or animal crackers, that I will take!

  5. Oh man easter candy gets me EVERY YEAR!! It's awful and amazing at the same time. I'm a total sucker for the Peanut Butter Eggs and Sweet Tart Jelly Beans. I say eat em while you can because before you know it, they'll be gone!

  6. I have a hard time with the “just one” thing myself! I don't buy much candy for the kids baskets, just enough to send them into a sugar coma for one day, I focus on some small, fun, spring toys! Have fun!

  7. Oh my, those look yummy! I might have to give those a try!

  8. Oooo I have to try those marshmallow musketeers!
    I'm a sucker for any chcolate/peanutbutter combo. I have been known to sneak candy from the baskets before the “bunny” even gets to give it out 🙂

  9. Oh my am I reading that right? Does that say Marshmallow covered in chocolate?!?!?! YUM! I must get some of these!

  10. I LOVE Muskateers. Only my favorite candy ever. And, your secret is safe with me.
    In fact, why dont' you come over and I'll pick up another bag :0)

    Very addicting! I never was a big fan of musketeers but man my dad was. Always had them around. I prefer snickers. Not doing much in the terms of candy this year for easter….don't want the temptation…I'm watching my figure…lol…

  12. hahaha, I love this. Not that I can relate or anything 😉


  1. […] #5 Three Musketeers I admitted to eating an entire bag of Three Musketeers Marshmallows, BUT, I didn’t actually finish off one bag of Halloween candy.  I finished off two.  The kids helped me (a little) with the second bag, so I didn’t think that should count. […]
