We have to go to Sam's Club soon. Halloween candy will be on our list. Dentists must love this holiday.
My favorite is those peanut butter kisses that are wrapped in colored paper.

Are peppermint patties wrapped in different wrappers for holidays? if not, they should be.

(yeah, Al. i love peppermint patties even though as a diabetic i'm not supposed to eat them.)

I love the candy corn too. I cannot have it around though as I will eat it until it is gone!

Anything with chocolate - I love Baby Ruth, and almond Mars bars are incredible. And yes, I like Peppermint Patties too. But, we go off to Costco and buy the huge bags of wrapped stuff. And then I try to give it alllllll out so that there won't be any left in the house.

Oh this is wrong on many levels...

Of course, York Peppermint Patties are my #1.
However , Butterfingers are a close 2nd. They're less healthy, so I have cut back on them. Butterfingers are my wife's first choice, but she didn't grow up walking by the factory where they made p.p's ------ like I did when I was going to junior high school. Back then [mid 60's] peppermint patties could be bought on Fridays for 25 cents for a bag of 12!!! [factory seconds].

Geez, 2.5 cents per pattie- the good ole' days.

GOTTA be Reese's peanut butter cups shaped like pumpkins.

Sadly, we don't get Reese's down here in Oz.

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, Circus Peanuts, ewwwwwwwwwwwww. They might be the only candy I won't go near, though peeps are a close second.

Damn...I sure wish you hadn't started this topic. I was doing really good on my diet, and now I have a craving for candy. All of the above sound pretty good!

Linda, since I've written this I've driven by seven or eight Walgreen's and my car wants to pull in for some unknown reason. BTW , in the area where I live there is at least one Walgreen's every eight city blocks on every main street which is every four blocks. "They're Everywhere"!!! and they're all full of cheap junk food. You should see the candy sales right after Valentine's day, Easter and Halloween. Back to the carrot sticks.

I can't stay away fom candy corn if it's around. I've had that caramel candy corn, so good! I love anything with peanut butter but nuts give me migraines so sadly I can't eat them in any form at all.

My favourite is Hallowe'en Candy....the stuff that tastes
like Salt Water Taffy in orange and black wrappers....
Wish we could get it all year round....Y.U.M.M.Y.

No Bill....not me personally....
However - the kids do and it's one of the
most exciting days of the Year for them,
apart from Christmas....

Just watched a video (on msn) showing how they make candy corn. Secret ingredient? Marshmallow

Wow, I, too, love candy corn but only the Brach's brand. I usually give out raisins and mini-toothpastes, though.

j/k-- I try to buy stuff I won't be tempted to eat, such as Sweet Tarts or Butterfingers

Raisins and toothpaste!! Are you a child hater, or a dentist?

Candy corn HAS to top my list of Halloween favorites! But I also love those marshmallow peeps and the cream filled chocolate covered eggs! Guess I'm just a candy-aholic!!!

I love marshmallows, but I've never been able to stand candy corn or those marshmallow orange peanut things, nor orange slices.

I'm all over those bags of miniature Hersheys bars of different types, cherry slices, cherry Twizlers, and miniature Twix.

Pepperdoc, I watched that video, too. It was interesting but I kept thinking of how the smell of all that sugar must almost nauseate all the factory workers after a while.

When I was preschool age, our neighbor's sister and husband came to our area every October to go pheasant hunting and the husband always brought me a bag of candy corn. Whenever I see a bag of candy corn, I think of Hardy and Amelia. I must have eaten too much at some point and got sick of it because it really doesn't tempt me any more, but years ago, every fall I waited for that bag of candy corn.

Add another vote for candy corn, with Brach's choc covered peanuts and milk maid caramels tied for second. Claudette
