...that dd gets?!

Does anyone else do this? Or is it just me?

ScaryFakeNails Wed 31-Oct-12 12:40:03

What is a made in China sweet? I've never looked in detail to where sweets come from.

InSPsFanjoNoOneHearsYouScream Wed 31-Oct-12 12:40:30

What scary said

Sugarbeach Wed 31-Oct-12 12:41:55

Sweets Made in China.

Sugarbeach Wed 31-Oct-12 12:42:20

Now ducking behind the sofa....

MrsCantSayAnything Wed 31-Oct-12 12:42:28

I know what SUgar means. They tend to be the most brightly coloured and most "Novelty" type sweets going.

So....little plastic, fruit shaped squeezy things full of sherbert. Or baby rattles full of tiny livid blue sweets.

YANBU OP.

Well I don't do this, but if it makes you happy....
Why don't you either return them to teh person who has spent money on them or give them to some one else if you don't want your DC to have them. Christmas is coming up and no doubt your DC's school will be asking for donations of absolutely anything for their Christmas Fair.

Is it because they are sweets?

Or non-British sweets?

Or because you just hate China and everything that is made there?

Or because they are somehow communist sweets?

Or they will give you children a horrible human rights record?

ScaryFakeNails Wed 31-Oct-12 12:44:15

......... how very clear.

I think you mean those type of sweets you can buy cheaply in newsagents and sweetshops.

No I don't throw them away.

Why do you?

Petsinmyputridpudenda Wed 31-Oct-12 12:45:18

Free the sweeties !!!

Send them to me

InSPsFanjoNoOneHearsYouScream Wed 31-Oct-12 12:46:22

I'm not a sweetist, I don't care where the origin of my sweets are.

Free sweets are the best sweets grin

mignonette Wed 31-Oct-12 12:46:47

Don't go trick or treating then. How silly....

MrsCantSayAnything Wed 31-Oct-12 12:49:11

OP is probably nervous about the ingredients and with good reason. China is not known for it's care in terms of pollution generally or paint used in toys.

Sugarbeach Wed 31-Oct-12 12:51:05

She gets given too many sweets anyway, so she can't eat all of them, because I won't allow that many sweets. So, you can say it's because, they are sweets fuckityff. And the fact that i don't trust edibles made in china....she's just got a whole handful of them from the Halloween disco just now....

FreudiansGoldSlipper Wed 31-Oct-12 12:52:32

no i don't have to bother as ds does not like haribo type sweets or candy grin

i am not keen either apart from those sour fizzy things

halcyondays Wed 31-Oct-12 12:53:02

I've never even noticed any sweets that said made in China, tbh, so,no, I don't.

Sugarbeach Wed 31-Oct-12 12:53:26

Thanks mrs cant, I think you get me.

Sugarbeach Wed 31-Oct-12 12:54:24

Haribos are fine

StuntGirl Wed 31-Oct-12 12:54:55

You don't trust edibles made in China?? What?

FreudiansGoldSlipper Wed 31-Oct-12 12:56:26

not according to my ds grin

ScaryFakeNails Wed 31-Oct-12 12:56:46

No I don't throw them away. I don't throw any sweets away ever.

But we're obviously on a different wave length as I don't have rules about sweets.

I understand the point you're making but considering I don't investigate the origins of any of our food I don't think a few sweets is the place to start and plus its not something I really care about. I doubt it will kill them.

FGS...it's never crossed my mind before, now I have something else to worry about! wanders off muttering distractedly

PosieParker Wed 31-Oct-12 12:58:16

I think you'd be surprised what can go into sweets in general, let alone sweets made in china.

ScaryFakeNails Wed 31-Oct-12 12:59:22

This.

Sorry, didn't mean to write in bold, I'm clearly bothered by filling DS up with even more rubbish.
