What candy item do you most look forward to seeing in your trick-or-treat bag?

Candy Corn/Pumpkins

Unless they start handing out sugar-free treats, I don't think anything will be coming into *this* house!

In any case, Samhain is too important to be celebrated in such a frivolous fashion.

I HATE candy corn. They are so darn sweet, I can feel my teeth decaying out from under me as soon as I put one in my mouth.

Hershey kisses for me, and those little bite sized Hershey bars.

That is why I like them! And I only eat them once a year, if at that anymore. The great thing about candy corn is once all your teeth have fallen out; you can stick the candy corn in as replacements!

Well, OK. There is that.

Candy Corn: You can shove them onto your incisors to look like fangs.

Nestle's Crunch Bars .. year round, really.

nycjadie23 Oct 2009 8:53 a.m. PST

I had an argument with my Aussie wife that nobody actually eats candy corn. At most, you can pelt them at your schoolmates. I could never eat the stuff and now I have to lose a bet over the revolting treat!


Ron W DuBray23 Oct 2009 8:54 a.m. PST

peanut butter cups, the same as the rest of the year.

Hand's down Reese's peanut butter cups. Ditto the revulsion for candy corn. Now peeps I like, but despite efforts to make them an Halloween thing, I eat'em at Easter.

The dentist next door to the shop is offering a candy buy back program where you can get a few dollars per pound. When I asked what he does with thecandy, he said they sent it to the troops overseas. Evidently, he's never had any experience with army dentist….

BTW, Reese's gets my vote as well.

ming3123 Oct 2009 11:09 a.m. PST

Chocolate ,

Eclectic Wave23 Oct 2009 11:23 a.m. PST

Any candy bar that is FULL SIZE and not a small "bite size" or "Fun Size". I make it a point only to give out full size candy bars. If you buy them from Costco or Sam's Club it's not that much expensive then buying a couple bags of candy from the supermarket.

Balin Shortstuff23 Oct 2009 12:14 p.m. PST

Yup, Reese's. The malt balls and all other chocolate a close second.

Anything but Candy Corn! Candy Corn is crap, and here is why:

Mounds bars first choice, $100,000 bars second, and Twix as a third choice.

When I take my daughter to our few neighbors, one always has a beer or some Crown on ice for me.

Little Snickers bars. The kids know that they have to pay their annual taxes to Dad in Halloween Snickers bars.

Whoppers. No contest.

Skor bar.

I try not to eat candy these days, but from childhood….candycorn!

Hells yeah!

Nothin' says Halloween like a couple o' bags of Nesstle Crunch bars. "But Honey, I didn't want to run out and disappoint the kids!"

MahanMan23 Oct 2009 7:22 p.m. PST

As a 19th Century historian, I follow my Nigerian colleague in imposing protective tariffs on my urchin kinfolk on all Reese's peanut butter cups, malted milk balls or Milk-Duds.

Smugglers are subject to heavy fines.

candy corn

Neotacha23 Oct 2009 10:28 p.m. PST

I'm too old for trick-or-treating. But I don't mind buying candy and eating it -- um, handing it out to the adorable tykes come the day.

CeruLucifus24 Oct 2009 9:33 a.m. PST

Mounds. Dark chocolate + coconut in a one-bite size. Mmmmmmmm.

Ferrous Lands24 Oct 2009 10:29 a.m. PST

Just a follow up on the candy corn: I bought a bag last night after not eating any for 10+ years. Holy smokes, they're sweet. I could only eat 4 before my teeth started to hurt.

Last year a friend brought over candy corn flavored soda. If you find candy corn unpleasant, this stuff is just plain foul. And yet two of us kept drinking the cans we'd opened, on the premise that it couldn't really taste that nasty.

It can. It did.

But I still like candy corn in small doses.
