Title: Halloween candy
Post by: packbacker on October 10, 2011, 10:20:22 PM
Alright, what's your favorite, guilty pleasure, least favorite?

I bought some M&MS "white chocolate candy corn" at Wal-Mart tonight.  Holy crap- addictive!  They're super sweet but man oh man I know I'll have to get  a second bag.

Favorites have to be Reese's cups or pieces. Chocolate and peanut butter together just makes sense.

Least favorite- I never really cared for Sweet-Tarts/Bottle Caps etc.

Those M&M's sound good, I want to look for them now. I know they've been out for awhile, but I just tried the peanut butter snickers and the bite size, snack version is perfect. I also like the fast break, and reese's pieces. Basically, anything with peanut butter is my guilty pleasure. Also really love Nerds, but they're kind of like I only want them every so often as to not get tired of them.

Sweet Tarts are good, but I only get the green, orange or purple ones because radiant_red eats the blue and red ones. I never get them on my own.

Least favorite - anything with coconut, like Almond Joy, doesn't that have coconut, ewww?? Never understood why they would give those out on Halloween. Oh, and butterscotch hard candy, ewww.

I always love the hershey miniatures. And my favorite candies are reese's peanut butter cups and butterfingers. I always hated getting those mystery candies in the black and orange wrappers. I spend a ton of money on Halloween candy so that no kid leaves my house saying gross or cheap. I give the good stuff.

I'm a huge fan of anything with chocolate and peanut butter together.  I do really like chocolate covered pretzels, too.  I also like sour candy like sweet tarts, tear jerkers, etc.  But my favorite guilty pleasure around this time of year...those caramel and chocolate covered apples with all the candy/nuts on them.  I had one covered with Oreo's and Reeses' from the fair, and it was incredible!  But really I go for most things that have a Halloween theme.  To me, it makes them better.  Put a wrapper on something that looks like  a ghost or jack o' lantern, and it suddenly becomes more fun!

Oh those orange and black mystery candies.....ewwww.  Good call on those. 

Every year I buy a TON of candy on the off chance that my yard full of Halloween tackiness brings me trick or treaters.  Every year after my 4 trick or treaters I'm left with a mound of stuff.  I buy the good stuff, too, cause it's gonna be me eating it until I decide to take it to work. 

This year- skittles, nerds, gummi life savers, starburst, hersheys, reeses cups, gummy body parts, among others.  I can feel myself getting fatter.

Candy corn is just too sweet for me, sorry. I do like the pumpkin cream Hershey Kisses, too.

Candy corn is the truth! I freakin' love that stuff.

Also funny Jonathan how you hate those orange and black mystery candies, I hate those orange and black mystery candies. It's almost like we went trick or treat together when we were little.  ;D


Edit: These might not count, but how good are candy apples?!!

I love sweet tarts! Chocolate wise its  buttercups or butterfingers. Though, I used to not really like candy corn, I have lately.

I stand corrected.  They are "Pumpkin Spice" Hershey Kisses, they have them at Target.

You know what would rock? If someone pass'd out Pumpkin spiced Latte's?! Hahahaha. Sorry, reading what Slappy said made me crave one!

I have found a way to make your own.  I bought some Pumpkin Spice Dunkin' Donuts coffee from Target.  Brew it strong.  I add in some Italian Creme coffee creamer to taste, and I swear it's really close to Starpukes and LOT cheaper.

I've never been too keen on the pumpkin spiced stuff. I have no idea why. I love pumpkins!

I tell you what I do love though, baked pumpkin seeds! Those aren't really candy, but man they are good!
