So, this no candy for Lent thing. Let me explain how it's going to work. Katie and I talked about giving up candy for Lent and what it all includes.
This is what constitutes as candy:
- Individually wrapped sugary deliciousness such as a root beer barrel. I enjoy a good root beer barrel from time to time. There's some in my car. They've been there since the summer.

- My mother's delicious candies. Mama, you have no idea how long it took me to find a picture of your truffles. Very long time indeed.
- Clearly, candy bars are strictly off limits. That includes Reese's eggs -- only the best type of Reese's. Others will agree.
- Anything not listed in the what is allowed section below.
This is what is not considered candy, or the Lent Loopholes as Sean pointed out:
- Cake. Cake is dessert. Candy and dessert are not the same thing. Katie will back me up.
- One gray area we found was a M&M cookie. We both say that is a dessert. Sean completely disagreed when I told him that. I don't eat very many M&M cookies, so I'm not too worried.
- Cookies. Homemade cookies, not pre-packaged ones. See the above gray area.
- Pie. Again, that is dessert.
- Did I miss anything?
