Whether it be Laffy Taffy or Milk Duds, many Mamas secretly count the hours until their kids return home with their Trick or Treat bags overflowing. Are you one of them? Starting this month, we have a new feature called “Three Things” – the TodaysMama staff will give three simple answers to a monthly question. This month we took a gander down the candy aisle and narrowed down the “Three Things” each of us can’t pass up around this time of year… Enjoy!
