Halloween equals CANDY

One of the best parts of Halloween for me is the candy. Okay, the chocolate. Anyway, the manpanion and I usually come up with a game plan of where we're going to hit with the kids. In fact, they're typically ready to go home before we are. haha

When we're done trick-or-treating, we compile all the candy into one big pile and sort it out so everyone can share. Chocolate, of course, goes in its own special bin, where I partake of it as much as I can. I consider it to be my parental subsidy. :D

My fav Halloween treats are Reece's Peanut Butter Cups, followed closely by Three Musketeers and Milky Way. Oh man, I'm drooling just thinking about it. But the one thing I hate now is the whole "fun" size. What's so fun about 1/10 of a candy bar?

What about you--do you have a Halloween trick-or-treating plan? What candy do you most look forward to?


  1. Halloween was so much more fun when my daughter was small. We'd go out, fill up her bad, and afterwards, I'd get any candy she didn't like. Lucky me, she didn't like anything with peanuts. The Snickers were MINE! Hehe.

    Fast forward ten years and she doesn't treat or trick any more - plus she decided she likes peanuts after all. =o( On the upside, now we fill the giveaway bowl with the candy we like and hope we don't get that many trick-or-treaters. ;o)

  2. Ugh. Stupid fingers. I meant to say 'fill up her BAG'.

  3. No candy for me this year. Or most years actually. 1. We don't have kids to steal it from and 2. neither of our waistlines need it.

  4. Reese's peanut butter cups for sure! But this year I'm having a party and I'm making know what they are? Chocolate peanut butter candies? I'm making those tonight, plus Chex Mix. And tomorrow I'm making mini pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and Halloween sprinkles. This is going to be a great party :)

  5. Okay, you're totally gonna laugh.

    My favorite halloween candy is candy corn (duh) and those peanut butter chews in the black and orange wrappers. Srsly! I can't stop eating those!

    Reese's Peanut Butter Cups all the way. Also love candy corn. I know a lot of people hate it, but it's like crack for me.

    I'm desperately seeking those pumpkin spice Hershey's Kisses that Julie Hurwitz told me about, but we don't seem to have them around here. SOOOO jealous!

  7. Bryn--OMG I love buckeyes...SO TASTY!!

    you guys are making me candy-hungry. *drool*

  8. I always get candy I like to give out, and no one comes to the door, and then I get to keep it. :-)

    Candy I like = Reese's, Snickers, Kit Kat, Twix, Butterfinger, or Hershey's Miniatures. :-)

    My personal favorite is M & M's, especially the original or dark chocolate styles. I, too, like candy corn. But, I am a big fan of the mallow creme pumpkins.

    Other favorites: 3 Musketeers, Kit Kat, and coconut Hershey's Kisses.

  10. I like airheads and snickers.
