  • I'm not a huge candy eater (except right now when the house is stocked with Halloween candy) but I'd have to say my favorite 3 are

    1) Hershey's Hugs
    2) Skittles
    3) Sour Gummy Worms.

  • 1. Peanut butter cups (I love them with dark chocolate)
    2. Peppermint Patties
    3. Twizzlers
    I do love Junior Mints but the tiny trick or treat boxes drive me insane.  There's only like three in there and they always stick to the inside!

    1. These sea salt milk chocolate covered caramels from a chocolate shop in Portland that I used to work at: Moonstruck. OMG the best. I also love Milky Ways, Twix, anything with caramel is going in this slot (except ones with nuts lol)

    2. Reese’s of any variety

  • @Avrilmai, @zamora_spin I forgot about the Cadbury Mini Eggs!! Also, just so you know, I mistakenly bought a bag of white chocolate Cadbury mini eggs last year. Apparently that’s a thing now. I mean...I still ate them all... it just wasn’t the same.

  • @kiki047 I have sensitive teeth, too.  I can't do cold caramel at all.  I had ice cream with Twix pieces in it and I thought I was going to break a tooth.

    @kiki047 @emeraldduchess I was trained for years by my grandma, who used to keep everything in her freezer (hostess cupcakes, Reese’s, etc) and fridge (all other candy). I blame her for my sweet tooth and affinity for cold things! Now it just makes me nostalgic and reminds me of her 😊

    I don't eat sugar anymore but I may have to have a piece because it's a holiday.  That's a good enough excuse right?

  • @lcking82 we’d be the perfect sarburst pain. I give away my red/yellows.
    @emeraldduchess I feel the smal way about Halloween milk duds, like seriously 4!?
    @zamora_spin Good and Plenty!? We can’t be friends ;)
    @minnek8 I also only eat Milky Way at Halloween, especially the dark ones

    Add me to Reese Eggs camp as for best
