I don't mean to be rude but these all seem rather sugar filled which would do just the opposite of helping you sleep better. Or do you mean in a less literal way like 'it'll help you sleep better because you didn't eat the whole pan!' Haha, I guess I just don't get it...

I'm also kind of curious how these treats will help people sleep better..

Drink a glass of hot or warm milk before sleeping.
