Lunchtime Poll: I Want Candy

What’s your favorite candy?

I’m partial to Cadbury Crunchie bars, which are easily found in many other countries except the U.S. Thankfully the boyfriend is more than willing to secretly order them off the Internet and bring them as a surprise dessert when I cook dinner.

I love most types of candies and sweets, although I have a weakness for artisan type dark chocolate bars and truffles and sour salt chewy type candies.

Lately I’ve been craving a lot of Asian candies, like Kasugai gummies (lychee and muscat grape are favorite flavors), ginger chews, sesame brittle, and Meiji brand meltyblend chocolates.

All of you are talking about chocolate. Which is a Whole Different Category. I’m going to go with organic, soft centered gummy bears (and other shapes). Or suikerhartjes. Zure matten. Is TNL candy land? Am I confused? I don’t know! But even though I can only eat it in small portions these days, I’m a big fan of the aggressively coloured stuff.

I’m not actually that big of a candy person. I do like chocolate, but it usually has to be better quality than, say, a Snickers bar, for me to REALLY like it. They just put too much fake shit in a lot of American candy.

However, I will eat the shit out of Thin Mints and anything that tastes like them.

There’s a small candy shop downtown that makes dark chocolate covered candied orange peels. Oh. My. Stars. But those are a rare treat, so every day candy goodness is most any kind of hard candy (especially Werther’s)(and those big gourmet lollipops you can find at pretty much every checkout line)

I’m only occasionally in the mood for chocolate stuff (and prefer dark), but I have total weakness for stuff in the ‘sour candy’ arena. Sour Patch Kids? Sprees? SweeTarts? Oh my yes. And Jelly Bellies, although I despise about half of the flavors (and of course eating only half of them is ‘healthier’ somehow; like how Skittles are a ‘health food’ since they resemble fruit flavor…).
