NO, I AM NOT A HAPPY CAMPER TODAY!!!!  If this doesn't post, I am not doing it again... promise!

1.  Do you keep a candy dish out either at home or at work?
2.  Do you keep candy in it or do you keep it out for decoration?
3.  Does it have a lid or cover?
4.  What type of candy do you keep in it (or would you if you kept one out)?
5.  Do you prefer individually wrapped candy or doesn't it bother you that all the candy is fingered by every hand that goes in it?

Well, apparently it did work this time.... only after 3 tries... grrr!

1.  Do you keep a candy dish out either at home or at work?  I like to but I forget a lot of the time.

2.  Do you keep candy in it or do you keep it out for decoration?  I would put candy in it if I kept one out.

3.  Does it have a lid or cover?  I don't think I have any with a lid or cover.

4.  What type of candy do you keep in it (or would you if you kept one out)?  If at home, I would keep M&M's, Skittles or Peanut M&M's but at work I would probably use mini-candy bars, peppermints, or hard fruit flavored candy.

5.  Do you prefer individually wrapped candy or doesn't it bother you that all the candy is fingered by every hand that goes in it?  At work, i would only use individually wrapped candy... i do not want anybody's nasty fingers on something that I might eat.  At home, I'm not so picky...

I am having to log in 3-4 times every time I post today.  So, so frustrating.  Hope this works.

1.  Do you keep a candy dish out either at home or at work?  Both.   I have a jellybean bowl at my house.   It started as a thing for Jeff but over the years everyone has caught on and they raid the beans.

2.  Do you keep candy in it or do you keep it out for decoration?  It’s only out if there is candy in it.   The work one has leftover Halloween candy in it.

3.  Does it have a lid or cover?  Neither

4.  What type of candy do you keep in it (or would you if you kept one out)?  NA

5.  Do you prefer individually wrapped candy or doesn't it bother you that all the candy is fingered by every hand that goes in it?  Well, it’s only family and close friends at home.  I only have wrapped at work.

1.  Do you keep a candy dish out either at home or at work? NO! Too much of a temtation for me.

No candy dish.  Didn;t have one at work, either.  I'd eat it all absentmindedly.

If I had one, I would keep Wertehr's Originals in it.  Yes, they are wrapped.

1. Do you keep a candy dish out either at home or at work?
At home I do have one when I remember to use it.

2. Do you keep candy in it or do you keep it out for decoration?     
I do keep candy in it
.
 

3. Does it have a lid or cover?
No it does not have a cover.

4. What type of candy do you keep in it (or would you if you kept one out)?
I buy seasonal  candies.  So that is what I have plus the tiny candy bars, like babe ruthes, paydays & snickers.

5. Do you prefer individually wrapped candy or doesn't it bother you that all the candy is fingered by every hand that goes in it?
They are usually the ones that are all wrapped.  I have a dusty house and would not want to be eating dust. LOL

1.  Do you keep a candy dish out either at home or at work? -- nope! With my boys at home and my students at school "out" is just not an option!  I have a plastic tub (an old Red Vines container) of candy at school for the rare occasions in which I bribe/reward my students (bringing back signed progress reports the first day, bingo review game winners, etc), but I keep that in my file cabinet.

2.  Do you keep candy in it or do you keep it out for decoration? ~~ I have a glass one in my china cabinet at home, and a Bakelite (I think) candy dish that was my grandmothers tucked away.

3.  Does it have a lid or cover? Grandma's does  - it is as big around as a dinner plate, and shallow, with divided space inside.

4.  What type of candy do you keep in it (or would you if you kept one out)? My grandma always had candy in hers, at least when we came to visit, usually lemon drops or ribbon Christmas candy. I would probably put lemon drops in it, out of nostalgia, if I were to put it out at home.

5.  Do you prefer individually wrapped candy or doesn't it bother you that all the candy is fingered by every hand that goes in it?  -- Definitely wrapped anywhere but home. Our office manager has wrapped hard candies at her desk. I will sometimes snag a butterscotch if there is one right on top when I go by her desk.That doesn't happen often, though, since our school psychologist has her office right next to our office managers desk, and she is a butterscotch fan, too.

Thanks for bringing up good memories with this one, Daisy! Smile

One of my fondest memories is of Bammaw Rice's candy dish (my great grandmother).  She always had fudge in it.  No matter how QUIETLY I opened it when she went to the kitchen, she said, "You aren't in that candy dish, are you???"  She always caught me.  But I think the fudge was a plant.  She WANTED to catch me.  Eating the fudge.  So she could send me home to her grandson, all sugared up and...well...if you have granchildren, you know what she did it for!

Looks like those first two attempts finally showed up, Daisy. When I clicked on them I got an error message, so I guess the aren't really there.

I am also seeing a duplicate post from Tracy's attempt to post to Shelly. Both hers had text in them, though.

Weird, weird, weird.

Why would she have the fudge if she didn't want you to eat it, Karen?

All this talk made me get Christmas candy today. I really wanted that ribbon candy, memories of Grandma too, but I didn't find any. I got white chocolate peppermint M&Ms instead. I don't even like M&Ms. I fault Daisy.
