I've been exonerated.

When my sons were young and went trick or treating I always took their "loot" and examined it closely.  I took out all the unwrapped or sloppily wrapped candy and they generously gave me whatever they didn't like. 

Now, this is why so many of my friends felt that I was a cruel mother.  I told them that they could have only three pieces each night and I had possession of their bags.  It was their bedtime treat.  Eventually they got bored and forgot all about the candy.

This past Sunday I was watching Sunday House Call on Fox News.  One of the doctors, I don't remember which one suggested rationing the candy, allowing the children 3 or 4 pieces a day.

See, everybody who thought I was cruel to my children,  I WAS RIGHT!!

LOL. I let mine eat candy until they threw it up. They hated candy more every year...
