Top Five Tuesday: Halloween Candy

I considered doing something less cliché, but in the end my love of candy won out. What were/are your favorite treats to find in your trick-or-treat sack? Mine are the same as they were when I was a kid:

  1. Snickers
  2. Crunch Bars
  3. Kit Kat
  4. Smarties (Rockets for our Canadian friends)
  5. Gobstoppers

I have heard that chocolate is no longer king in the Halloween game. Apparently kids are looking for sour gummy-type candies instead, but I refuse to believe it. I truly can’t imagine this holiday without whispered rumors of the house that has full sized Hershey bars being passed around with awe.

you remember the little tootsie rolls that were different flavors (vanilla, raspberry, etc). those.
peppermint patties
3 musketeers
peanut m&ms

Okay. Twizzlers are number one. Every time. Halloween or not. I eat them waaay too much.

1) M&Ms
2) 3 Muskateers
3) Snickers
4) Reeses
5) Twix

My kids have had a plethora of pre-Halloween candy, and it’s been fun watching their preferences. My son is partial to M &Ms & Reese’s, as well as his new discovery this year, “Kitty Kats”. My daughter also loves the M&Ms, and seems also rank Snickers high on her list. They’ve also been enamored with Nerds, which I have to say, are more delicious than I remember.
