~lock it up and throw away the key~

Right now, as I type, there is a two pound box of See's Candy in my cabinet. I bought it because I will be having 14 house guestsat my house for Thanskgiving weekend and EVERY celebration includes See's at our house. As a matter of fact, from as far back as I can remember, a box of See's candy was passed around Christmas morning for breakfast as we opened presents.
Unfortunately, it is really hard for me to keep it all wrapped up in the cabinet. It will be a miracle if it survives until turkey day!
Are there any foods that you physically cannot resist (you could eat it any day, any time, anywhere?)
What foods are a must-have in your holiday celebrations?
Does food even play a major part in your holidays?
Are there people out there that it doesn't? If so, I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
