  1. Full Size Candy Bars?

    General Halloween
    Hi all!! My husband and I have been having this debate. Full size bars or fun size? I usually give out 3 pieces of the fun size stuff.......and who has a clue how much of it I eat. The way I see it based on 3 pieces plus my consumption it would be a wash money wise. What do you give out?
