OK, so, I must first say that I had this post scheduled and it posted before I ever had the chance to actually write it! LOL! Y’all who liked my super rough draft prior to me fixing it, THANK YOU! Y’all are too sweet and I hope you got a good chuckle out of it!
Today, I want to discuss CANDY! What better time to do so when Halloween looms just around the corner?! Just to get this out of the way, I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOUR FAVORITE CANDY IS!
Like probably the majority of us, I absolutely adore candy, of many different kinds – chocolate, naturally; chewy Sweettarts; caramel, with chocolate or plain; Twizzlers; caramel cremes; Mounds and Almond Joy; Kit-Kats; Snickers; Milky Way Midnight; peppermints; 3 Musketeers; and way too many more to list here!
I have, sadly, encountered some candies that I just don’t mesh with. Number one is the new Butterfinger! What the hell?! Why on this planet would they mess with the original recipe?! Butterfingers don’t have their trademark crunch anymore! I don’t understand why the new Butterfinger isn’t marketed as just a different kind and the originals were kept on the shelves…RANT OVER.
Typically, I’m not a fan of dark chocolate, unless it’s mixed with stuff like caramel and a variety of other fillings. For instance, I mentioned above that I enjoy Milky Way Midnight. I also adore York Peppermint Patties, which are also covered with dark chocolate.
White chocolate – which really isn’t ‘chocolate’ at all, is just plain weird to me. I really don’t mind it in small doses, unless it’s mixed with a filling or covered with something else, like Hershey’s Kisses Hugs!
I used to despise candy corn; however, it’s really grown on me over the past few years. There’s something about its taste, barring the weird texture, of course. Anyhow, it’s such a good candy to munch on, especially in homemade trail mix! P.S. My cousin makes THE best of the snack!
Junior Mints are my absolute favorite to get during an excursion to the movies! I love to mix them with heavily buttered popcorn! YUM! What’s odd is that I rarely buy Junior Mints outside a movie theater. I guess I associate them so much with movies, it just doesn’t feel right to get them just at random!
Boxes of chocolate are also amazing! The assortment of flavors is so much fun! I rarely check out the chart included that states the types of chocolates to be found in the boxes, unless, of course, I don’t know what I’m eating for some reason! Whitman’s Samplers are by far the best chocolate obsessions. I do know for a fact that the little pieces with the postman on them are milk chocolate only! My favorite morsel found in a Sampler is by far the one with a maple filling! 😀
