View Full Version : Favorite Halloween Candy?

10-30-2005, 07:29 PM
What is your favorite Halloween candy? Or just favorite candy?

I think it was last year when someone mentioned that eating candy corn
with peanuts tastes just like Baby Ruth candy bars. Try it, it works smileys/smiley32.gif

10-30-2005, 07:29 PM
I like the white Smarties too.

10-31-2005, 07:33 AM
Dark Chocholate

10-31-2005, 07:37 AM
M&M's and Snickers!!

10-31-2005, 07:37 AM
Reeses Peanut Butter cups. Mmmmm. I have to buy a bag so my DS doesn't throw a fit when I steal all of his.

I love Sweet Tarts and Bazooka bubble gum too.

10-31-2005, 07:45 AM
M&M's and sweet tarts!

I can't wait to go through my kids bags!

10-31-2005, 07:53 AM

My son is only 2, so we are taking him to just a few houses so he starts to get the idea. When he goes to bed, Mommy and Daddy get to go through his bag since he doesn't eat candy yet!

YES! Take 5!! They are the BEST. Chocolate... pretzels... peanut butter, caramel... The only way they would be better is if they were covered in Dark Chocolate instead of Milk Chocolate!!

10-01-2006, 08:26 AM
LoL, I didn't know a lot of you MOMs out there love to eat JUNKIES like ME! Heh. I haven't had eat candy in a long time. :( I would eat them from occassions. Yay! Can't wait to snatch some candies from my kids' bags of trick &amp; treats. I love smarties, candy cones &amp; pumpkins, snickers, milky way, reese cups, butterfingers, almond, and so on. Some candies I DON't LIKE! Yucky Milk Duds, Whoopers, and Tootsie Rolls?! YUCKY, I can't stand that tootsie rolls, why alot of them were passed out is beyond me. It'a a waste of money for that kind of candy I don't like. Do anybody like tootsie rolls? I think they ought to stop making those tootsie rolls. It just seems people buy it since it's cheaper and alot of people don't like to eat it, so what's the use of it???

10-01-2006, 04:42 PM
My favorite Halloween Candy is Reese Cups. I just love that chocolate with peanut butter. I do eat candy corn, but it seems to be too sweet for me with age. I do not eat a lot of sweets and candy gives me a headache. Does anyone else have this problem?


10-02-2006, 01:23 AM
Hi Everybody

My favorite candy is Winegums and KitKat.

/Mats from Sweden

10-02-2006, 08:46 PM
Candy Corn &amp; Gobstoppers - I LOVE them :)


10-03-2006, 06:13 AM
Oooooh boy,

The snack-sized Snickers AFTER you throw them in the freezer smileys/smiley4.gif

I refuse to tell you how many bags of these I went through during my pregnancy 3 years ago. Suffice it to say I'm sure it's where my 25 pound weight gain came in smileys/smiley36.gif

Nontheless, the weights all gone now but my craving for the Snickers is not.smileys/smiley9.gif

10-03-2006, 09:40 AM
Good old Three Musketeers... so smooth and creamy...

It's pretty hilarious how much candy we get for Halloween I have 3 children and we have candy until Christmas... uh oh... another hour on the treadmill now..smileys/smiley36.gif

10-04-2006, 08:41 PM
They have Halloween Peeps now... love those.

Other favs, reeses, smarties, tootsie rolls and of course candy corns!

10-05-2006, 07:56 PM
Almond Joy!

10-06-2006, 01:41 AM
My favorite all time has to be a Snickers. Its the complete package.

Second I would go with a reeses peanut butter cup! Those are great!

10-25-2006, 12:02 PM
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Hersheys Special Dark Hersheu's bars, Heath Bars, Spree, Junior Mints, York Mint Patties.

10-25-2006, 12:34 PM
I also like the bubble gum (YUM)

OK guys! Do you take your little ones trick or treating in your neighborhood, at the mall and/or the local businesses in your area. Personally, I think thatdoor-to-door trick/treating is dangerous.

I take my children to OctoberFest at our church. They don't wear customs, but they have a great time and eat lots of candy just the same.

10-25-2006, 04:12 PM
my all time favorite, and I know I'm dating myself here, are those wax candy lips we used to get as kids.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who remembers when we could get a whole "dime" bag of candy for just 10 cents. It would last us for a week. At Halloween, there that always an added selection at the candy counter of the wax lips, teeth and fangs.

10-25-2006, 05:21 PM
Moro Bars
But then, I'm a Kiwi.

10-26-2006, 02:47 AM
"...door-to-door trick/treating is dangerous."

I've found that to be a myth, it's only dangerous if you don't watch your kids and you're in a dangerous neighborhood.

I have never once seen or heard of anything bad happening to anyone I
know (or thier kids) from door to door trick or treating. The worst
that's ever happened to me were the occassional anti-Halloween kooks
who scream at kids for being dressed up and "worshipping the devil.
Whatever. Kids don't know anything of that, all they see it as is an
opportunity to play dress up with thier friends and get tons of free
candy. I think some people put too much thought (and fear) into all
that. Just because your kid wants to dress up and have fun doesn't mean
they're going to grow up and wear upside down crosses.

My favorite Halloween candy is Candy Corn. How can you resist placing
two candy corns over your eye teeth, telling the kids you're a candy
corn vampire and chasing the kids around the backyard!

10-26-2006, 10:14 AM
OK beezus, I think you're taking the trick or treating thing a bit to far. What I was talking about (as far as door-to-door) being dangerous, is the fact that sometimes people (maybe not you), take their children to homes of people that they don't know, and if you don't know them, can you trust that their candy will be trustworthy?

As far as upside down crosses and stuff, that's a personal issue that goes far beyondHalloween.

Anyway guys, I would also like to say that I remember the candy lips, and that was one of my favorite candies also. This may sound icky, but I would roll the lips up into a ball of wax and chew it until all of the sweetness was gone. What a great memory!!

10-26-2006, 03:39 PM
There really isn't any trouble with trick or treating in a
neighborhood, even if you don't know the people in your neighborhood.
You can also go to any local hospital and get the candy x-rayed for
free, most hospitals offer these services this time of year.



Please read these links for safe door to door trick or treating tips
and they also discuss the myth of poison candy. The only known/recored
poison candy incidents were from family, not strangers.

I want kids to have fun, but I want them to be safe as well!

Wax lips were always great! They had a great texture for chewing and a
faint cinnamon flavor (well the ones I always got were cinnamon
flavored)! The wax pop bottles were always good too! The blue ones were
the best!

10-31-2006, 09:54 PM
Candy corns and the candy pumpkins.
When they are fresh they're hard to beat!!

11-03-2006, 05:22 PM
candy corn &amp; snickers...yum!!!!

11-06-2006, 06:56 AM
Chunky peanut butter flavoured Kitkats. They are highly addictive and just will not let me say 'no' to them, no matter how hard I try.

11-11-2006, 10:07 AM
I love jelly beans, but that's just me. I also like to eat any type of chocolate, or white chocolate, like those cookies n cream candy bars. that is my favorite.

11-13-2006, 08:14 PM
Whatever happened to "Waxed Lips" or "Waxed Fangs?"

They weren't supper yummy, but I had great fun with them.

Fond Memories

11-14-2006, 12:05 AM
My favorite is the flavored tootsie rolls. What is crazy though is that I never see them except for at halloween time.

11-27-2006, 11:32 AM
What's my favorite candy? All the above, although I love to break apart Kit Kat while I am eating it.


12-01-2006, 09:12 PM
OMG Cheryl, I love the white smarties too!!! Never heard of anyone else loving those too. LOL

One time I reached in the candy dish for one and my husband had rearranged the candy in a bunch of the rolls so they were all white for me. smileys/smiley27.gif Cute surprise.

05-09-2007, 08:31 AM
I love just about any Halloween candy as long as it doesn't have nuts. I put up with NUTS all day, I don't like to eat them!http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

05-13-2007, 07:53 AM
HA,HA,HA I just love this question,
jelly beans, any HERSHEY chocolate bars (kisses oooh my goodness)
taffy (do you remember mary jane wrapped candy)
you know nowthat i think about it, I really can't wait for my family and friends
to come back from trick-a-treating so i can just stick my hand in the bag
and pull whatever out normally it's a WINNER. Let's just say i love holloween.

05-13-2007, 08:11 PM
OMG, to me any candy is good candy. And I'll eat just about anything out of my kids' bags that they won't eat. If I had to choose my all time fave though I think Reeses' PB Cups would probably top my list.....yum-yum!

The old fashioned - nothing says Halloween like - CANDY CORN. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley32.gif

I am now diabetic and shouldn't have it....but in about 1986, when I worked at this one place, a co-worker had a big jar of candy corn on her desk andI was getting quite a sugar high. When I went back for about my 5th handful - she placed her hands over the top.

It was like a bar - I got cut off!!! LOL

05-26-2007, 11:38 AM

Chicken bones is my favorite candy,i love the filling inside.

08-17-2007, 06:34 PM
I agree those York Mints are out of this world, but I love those chocolate covered cherries in dark chocolate. Unfortunately I have a habit of eating a whole box when I get them. Then complain of a stomach ache for the next two hours. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley9.gif

10-05-2007, 07:23 PM
Definitely, most assuredly, the candy corn, although its LOADED with sugar LOL

Second place would be the little smarts candies, those little sugar discs?? They are all rolled up in a piece of clear plastic with the ends twisted. Bad for you too, but then, we get to splurge a little bit on Halloween right??? ;)

10-05-2007, 09:18 PM
Smarties have got to be it! But then, I don't eat much candy. Smarties are great!
I also like candies with nuts and chocolate, especially macadamia nut - yum! But you don't get macadamia nuts as Halloween treats!

Candy corn, mixed with cashews....lol Very high in sugar and fat, but totally yummy!


10-24-2007, 08:50 AM
Autumn - do you really mix the two??? I have never heard of that - it's like a unhealthy and yummy trail mix - LOL!

10-24-2007, 09:57 AM
Hi Deborah!

Yes, I really do mix the two, and that is exactly what it is like - trail mix for the non-health oriented!

A friend of mine mixes the candy corn with salted peanuts, which is what gave me the idea....

I haven't bought it so far yet this year, but I may run to the store soon!

smileys/smiley36.gif smileys/smiley36.gif smileys/smiley36.gif



10-24-2007, 10:02 AM
Oh, my, I cannot wait to tell my mom about the Candy Corn and Salted Peanuts - that sounds like something she would make a meal of!


10-24-2007, 10:33 AM
Deborah -

She might really like that!

I am somewhat allergic to peanuts, but the cashews and candy corn mix - well, it just vanishes around me and my friends, like the mists on a fine Irish morning. lol

I hope you have a nice day.

My favorite Halloween candy is the kiss candies, I just love then. Also the small chocolate bars you can get at halloween time

My husband loves that taffy that comes in black and orange wrappers, which I personally do not like, but he will eat them all!

I am a chocolate hound, and so are my kids so anything chocolate, pretty much works!

what I would like is the small bite small size chocolate bars.
