  • What's your favorite Halloween Candy?

    With Halloween just around the corner, and today's news about the fat content in a meal at McDonald's, what better topic for a thread than candy.

    Every year, my husband goes out and purchases bags and bags of candy bars. I used to pick out all my favorites, hoping that the kids, trick or treating, would be lite and we would have some "good" candy left over. Of course, I always ate a whole lot before the kids and the day actually came.

    Since I am presently too big for my britches, we have put off buying our Halloween Candy until Sunday. I am making sure this year, that we only buy the candy I don't like.

    When I was a kid, it was the Halloween kisses, with the peanut butter in the middle. Wrapped up in the orange and black paper. Then of course, anything chocolate. I loved smarties. Hollaway suckers. You know the caramel ones. Then of course Reeses peanut butter. I also loved the candy corn. People use to throw it in the bag loose. Favorite lollipops, of course were Tootsie Roll Pops. My sister loved the Red licorice. Then we got the little dotted candy on the paper.

    These days, I love Mounds Bars, and Kit Kat. I love anything coconut and caramel. I also adore semisweet chocolate.

    Are you good to the Trick or Treaters?. Do you rot their teeth, with lots of chocolate, or are you health conscious and hand out non edible treats?

    We always trick or treated as a family, and when we got home our mom always took all of our bags and sorted it out. Lollopops in one bowl. Kisses in another. Chocolate in another. She would monitor our candy intake better on days after Halloween better that way. Candy bowls were put up high, so we had to ask. So usually while we were Trick Or Treating, we ate as much of the good stuff as we could. We knew when we got home, it became community property.

    I raised two boys and I always dumped theirs together in one big container and took out all the unwrapped candy, especially the loose candy corn and the gum. I too tried to limit their sugar after Halloween, but I admit it, I ate a lot of good candy that my kids Trick or Treated for.

    So do you Trick or Treat with your kids? Do you perhaps have Halloween parties instead?

    I don't know why, but when I think halloween candy I think Kit Kats, and how much I hate people who give pennies.
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

      When I think of how many times, we have ran out of Halloween Candy on Halloween, and the only thing we had to give the many kids, that were still coming, was pennies. Well it is the reason today, why my husband always over buys on Halloween Candy. He hates to run out of candy. We always have a lot of Trick or Treaters, and since our grandson was born, my husband is the official "door bell answerer". He enjoys it, and he takes all left over candy to work, so I don't get too sick, from eating all the good stuff.

      Halloween is always fun at our house.

          KitKats, Butterfingers, Reese's, and Krackle.

          Everything else....I don't really care for.

          We never buy any candy. We're never home to answer the door!

            You know I remember this time last year. I was alone on Halloween night because my folks were out of state for the weekend. I did not want to have to get up every two seconds so I placed the candy bowl outside even though the porch light was not working. Anyway, after trick or treating was done, I saw the bowl and it was still full!!! I guess no one saw it and did not bother to come to the door since the porch light was off. Anyway, I had a pretty good night that night)


            Oha nd I like candy corn and Werthers Original

              People in our neighborhood usually only trick or treat to the houses, where the lights are on, or where they see decorations.

              I did the candy on the porch bit too, and candy was actually taken out. No one did the big "No No" which would be to take it all.

                              Reminds me I have to get rid of last years......always sits around for a while, OK a year. Favorite has to be Butterfingers, we'll see this year if I get any leftovers, usually do. Live on a cul-de-sac, so we don't see a lot of selfish candy grubbers!
                              Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
                              it's what they are like in their HEART!
