    Trick-or-treating may be a thing of the past, but Halloween candy is here to stay. Sure, the sugar high may not be worth the crash, but this is a holiday where splurging on your favorite sweet treat is definitely encouraged.

    And, believe it or not, there may be more lurking behind that sweet tooth than you think. To prove it, we tapped Terese McDonald, owner of Candyality and "candy-decoding" pro, to describe your personality and its connection to your favorite confection. Yep, this is serious scientific research — or a fun seasonal activity, at the least.

    Before McDonald was making the "world taste good," she was working in the beauty industry as the VP of sales, development, and training. She used this method to profile her staff — an idea that was sparked from a magazine article. So, it's safe to say the idea stuck with her, like a gumdrop to your teeth, long after she left the field.

    So, if you can't figure out why you're a nervous Nelly or a gregarious go-getter, just look down at all those empty wrappers on your desk. Maybe you are what you eat after all….
