What's your favorite kind of candy?

Hello loungers,

Halloween is almost here, which leads me to ask... What is your favorite kind of candy.

I tend to favor anything chewy and a serious danger to the fillings in my molars. lol.

Candies such as Dots, Toostie Rolls and most especially Charleston Chews.

I also like sweet-tarts.



So? What is your favorite kind of candy?

1. Smarties and Sweetarts!

Smarties are softer, and sort of a creamy texture. Sweetarts are hard and crunchy. Smarties are a much better buy. There used to be a theater box of Smarties, they were larger and loose in the box, not in rolls. Only available at theaters, but unfortunately discontinued in my area.

I like the traditional peanut butter kisses that come in the orange or black wrap (hated by many, I know). also Maryjanes are good. those little rolls of Smarties are quite good too. Charleston Chews are good too!

BOO

not that cheap yellow/waxy looking white chocolate. The white chocolate Reeses are fantastic. Just got my 86 year old mother some Lindt's white chocolate truffles the other day.

I used to work in a local candy shop. We made our own white chocolate almond bark and white chocolate covered strawberries.

Oh man! The sour ones are WAY more sour than those other powdery sour ones they have.

Sour enough to make me flinch, which is saying something.

Loved it!

But why do those damn junk food manufacturers still use hydrogenated fats??? A proven ticket to heart disease. It's banned in Europe. What the hell is it still permissible here?

They are like crack! So addictive. So yummy (not like crack). They only come out at Easter (they were a limited release and my dealer says they may be out for Halloween, but probably Christmas).

I also love Butterfingers!

I just bought some caramel candy corn from my local Wegmans Grocery Store. I like it as well, maybe better than the original. Never even knew there was such a thing but it is really good.

I really like the assorted, when you can find them. But the original (orange) will do in a pinch.

Melt some peanut butter in the microwave.
However much you like.
Careful, it doesn't take long to liquefy.

Pour it over a few scoops of chocolate ice cream.
Mama mia!
Ambrosia.
Heaven.
