Saying no to treats is so much easier now. Most people take a simple "no, thank you" but some people push it, saying things like, "They're really good! Try one!" I guess it hurts their feelings for anyone to say no. Like, "I made this to share and you won't even taste it."
A secondary comment does the job, especially now that I have a new one. People don't get "I don't eat sugar" as easily as "Sorry, I'm gluten intolerant." Now it's not their problem, it's mine, and they say okay and move on.
I love the smell of chocolate. I opened a tube of m&m's for a little boy yesterday, held them to my nose for a long inhale, and said, "Those smell really good!" He smiled a big smile as I handed them back. There was no danger of snitching one because I got over that long ago, and there is dairy in milk chocolate; besides who would snitch even a mini m&m from a 3-year-old? I wasn't born to be the Grinch.
